i went to the roof to see the city at dawn, but because i am afraid of heights (or, more precisely, i am afraid of myself: i always fear that my body may just spontaneously throw itself over the edge), i stayed crouching with my back against an inside wall.

still it was quite pleasurable, cloudy and cool, with the kind of clean air i'm not used to inhaling around these parts. we got the key to the roof just recently, otherwise i am sure i would have ventured up there before. such a quiet,safe space, where you can be alone without arousing any unwanted attention from gawking passersby. i wish i had known about the refuge of the roof earlier.

sleeplessness is dreadful, but it has its occasional discoveries....
