Sitting on the Roof

Home > Everywhere > Misc
Published December 13th 2012
Ground level a tad stale? There's something about the everyday scenery that just doesn't enliven you as much as it once did, or you're just looking for a spot for solitude? Well, fear no skillion, sawtooth or saddleback - the roof is the spot for you.

With but mere words, Sitting on the Roof may seem entirely impractical and utterly absurd. How impractical and how absurd is it, though, when you realise that there's probably a roof to sit on that's DIRECTLY ABOVE YOU! Furthermore, what does the Bible have to say?

"Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife."

Proverbs 21:9

If you've not already assembled a ladder and instead are considering the author's seriousness, experiences had during the Australian summer evening upon a roof are some of the most memorable crafted. Immediately gifted with a newfound appreciation of the world around you, not only are you extending the paltry limits of your lithospheric horizon, but to be level the treetops as the sunshine recedes over the canopy is an experience seldom unappreciated.

No matter what your environment, be it urban, suburban or rural, to sit upon a roof is to sit within a new world. Grab a book and a beer, put your house on the market and caption it "Spectacular View" - this is a roofulution.

To conclude this article with the often ignored DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME would render this summery activity illegitimate and, if you were to try it upon a neighbour's roof, antisocial; so, if you've continued, I beg you: DO TRY THIS AT HOME, preferably in the company of someone more experienced while exercising EXTREME CAUTION for the dangers surrounding you)
