Brick is a shy and retiring old social worker who is going to share his woolly, left-ish, naive and totally unrealistic thoughts with others just for the pleasure of knowing that they will be going puce in the face and their eyes will be bubbling with tears of frustration at not being able to get their hands round his throat. Good will to all – peace.

Brick welcomes comments on his postings and invites people who might like to submit guest postings to contact him by email at

A jobber among shadows.

Old work-whore, slave-

blood, who stepped the fair-hills

under each bidder’s eye

and kept your patience

and your counsel, how

you draw me into

your trail.

Seamus Heaney
