There is tranquility in overlooking the city. Standing high above the world beneath me brings a sense of freedom and peace. On a rooftop I don't feel so little; I don't feel like yet another face in the crowd. Instead I am able to look down at all the faces, buildings, or roads and find inspiration. I can admire the small details I wouldn't notice while simply crossing the street. I can admire the interactions between strangers. I can admire the breathtaking architecture. Standing on a rooftop allows me to take in the world around all of us and see it in an entirely new light. Something this simple brings perspective to my everyday quarrels with life. And with the simple action of climbing to the highest ground, I can be thankful for the quiet, private, and beautiful moments life continuously offers.
