An apartment store installed a lake on it’s roof. Awesome!
“I felt like I was pushing a rock up a hill.” – This story on Matador is a tough read for any aspiring writers out there, but it’s a good example of that John Lennon quote, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.”
