ancient times, the product has improved considerably as
clay was added for durability and heat was applied to improve
hardness. While improved materials such as silica and ceramics
have been added, the modern versions of brick are still modified
recipes of sand, water, clay and heat. Brick's hardiness is
proven by the fact that brick is one of the few building
materials that is routinely salvaged and re-used. In addition to longevity,
brick offers good insulation and weatherproofing. It requires no paint, so it
does not fade. Sound good so far? There's more. If you think that building with
brick lacks imagination, think again. You are not limited to red blocks 8" long

am your brick layer My arms are strong.
I pride myself in the number of bricks that I can lay in an hour. I was
laying bricks 5 thousand years ago and likely I'll be laying bricks long
into the future. Where there were rivers, there were bricks. I am your
bricklayer. I stand in awe of the structures created with bricks and mortar
in the past. Bricks represent strength and security. Weathered bricks bring
a special quality of beauty to the home. Sitting in front of a brick
fireplace makes the world seem warm and secure. I like the order and
systematic feeling of seeing my efforts turn into creations. I know my
sidewalks will last for generations. My brick
homes will be cost efficient and
strong. It is
work. I had to get used to it at first, but I was young then. I learned
to get into a rhythm that took me to a very peaceful place. Later the muscles might
ache but not while I worked. In silence, I listen to my creation. My labors
have put something there that is useful and that will last. I am your
bricklayer. Generations will enjoy the warmth of the fireplace. My bricks
withstand fire and cold, time and weather. Bricks give me a quality of
strength and I give them my skill. I arrange them in the shape they desire.
I wonder sometimes if the bricks partake of me as I partake of them. My
intent shapes their form. Sometimes I think my epitaph will be all the brick
structures I have erected. This will be my contribution to society. I am
your bricklayer. I mix the mortar carefully, I want my bricks to remain in
place for a long time. Bricks and mortar have come to mean the basics of
what keeps something together, of how and what you build. I am a practical
person who likes to see the results of his work right away but sometimes I
dream of the walls I have built; what laughter will they see, how will life
be strengthened by my bricks? The bricks under your feet, they support your
weight; they also support your fears. Do my bricks lend support to your
visions? My fireplace warms, nurtures the wood burning to give off sparks of
