This may or may not pass the rules of the challenge as it is not A brick, but many bricks. And a bird.

I intend to continue on the look out for A brick, but today while on my meander through the Garage Sales, I thought these ‘bricks of many colors’ were rather interesting.


This is the outside wall of the gymnasium at the local high school. There are many (many) inspirational quotes and sayings posted all long the wall. And since I have no song or poem to attach to my bricks, this will have to do.


And along the way, a robin posed for me and I could not resist taking a photo.

    It is kinda hard to find a single brick — although I have several that may have to do — but no solitary brick that stands out from the others such as Scott had in the original challenge post.

    We actually have a few brick streets in town, which is something of a rarity(?) so they may have to do as well. Lots of brick buildings downtown too.

    Looking at that wall, and it is impressive, I wonder how they determine the placement of the different colored bricks?

    Robins are beautiful birds and it would be great if they could be trained to use a robin sized Honey Bucket rather than their usual practice! 😉

      I agree about difficulty in finding a single bricks!
      That wall does not immediately appear to have a “pattern” does it? Random placement maybe. To get the only brick road, and that is only a partial road, I need a bike ride that takes a drive to get to. Maybe that will happen in May, we’ll see. I do enjoy looking at brick roads. Riding on them not so much ;’-0

    I’m glad this came up so early. No, this doesn’t count – because it’s too early! May is still a few days away, silly. Other than that quibble though, it would be fine. It never occurred to me that the post had to be about a single brick. It’s fine if it’s among friends, as is normal and what I expected. Note that in Robert Pirsig’s instructions, he is telling the student to focus on a single brick, on a brick wall.

      Whoops! May — too early, but still a nice ride ;’-).

    I sorta miss robins. If I ever leave Oz, I will not miss the parrot family. I love the quotes on the bricks. Sometimes, when people whine about public money being spent on things like that or public art, I always think: But that is what makes somewhere worth living!

      I love robins also Em. Always a good sign of spring as well ;’-)
