Cat On A Hot Tin Roof

I love stolen moments on the roof. I can only escape here for minutes at a time--the slant is too steep for real lounging and the summer sun too near and bright, but I'm very grateful for the brief time I am allowed to perch out there. To sit on the edge of the house beside shy birds and enjoy however temporarily their view of the world. It's nice to sit above and disconnected from the traffic and people passing below; like a secret escape and oasis from reality is waiting outside of your window--carrying you closer to the sky and the stars. Or maybe I'm just living out my moody teenage fantasy of rooftop escapades. It's the sort of place you'd run away to after a fight with your parents and smoke cigarettes you weren't old enough to legally purchase or make out with that boyfriend they don't approve of. A rooftop is just rife with possibilities.

Girls on rooftops always make me think of my fave movie, The Virgin Suicides. And Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is also a movie I love.

Or, if you live just an inch away from your childhood friend's room window, to have secret meetings, planning little getaways to see that rock concert your parents wouldn't approve of. Maybe to look at the stars whilst feeling like a total outsider at school.

Oh so cute :) Makes me wish I could escape to a roof top every now and then.

A steep slant is definitely worth it when you get beauty of this magnitude. You are the cutest.

there is something kind of adventure-like "up on the roof."

We have the same views about roofs. I also love staying on our rooftop because it allows me to see the beautiful sceneries that surround our home. It is where I write poems, create my daily affirmation, and craft my artworks. I also consider it as a perfect spot for calling my friends, whenever there are confidential things that I don’t like my family members to hear. I consider the rooftop as my mini sanctuary.
