We make love to the flowers in the spring time

we make love the trees in the fall

we lie on our ass  and make love to the grass

and the sun makes love to us all .

 "I know  where you got the idea for this illustration Norm , said junior, in a conspiratorial tone .Norman was studying a group of photos laid out  on his desk . He was deciding which to use in the illustration of the' Home coming'
"So where?" grunted Norm distractedly.
That old place on Vaughn Road , a bunch of ruffians live there . I hate walking by there cause I'm afraid  one of them is gonna come out and get me .
Norman smiles and says " Well I'm gonna make them all nice and pretty .
Junior responded with a slight edge to his voice ."well I'm gonna  to make every brick look so real just you like you were there .
Norman laughed ." good job boy we are going to do a fine piece between the two  of us "
who's going to know, Norman thought to himself and I still have that thing for the boy scouts magazine plus the War bond campaign .I really need help . It will be good for the kid , he needs discipline .If he does well I'll let him help with a portrait or two .


"Bricks", said Norman .
"But I wanted to do one of the the family or the dog even "Junior pleaded hopefully .
"Listen , I have a deadline , You don't need models for bricks and I can fill in the characters later . Help me out will you " .

Junior fidgeted  on the stool staring at a rough sketch  of the back   of a house ." Bricks are so tedious."  he grumbled ".How about a wash there has to be two thousand bricks on that wall "

"let me tell you, tedium can be your friend learn to love it .Imagine that you are the one building that house and so become the bricklayer. Start on the foundation one brick at a time and I don't want any of that impressionist wash garbage and watch your perspective as the side wall goes down  the alley and just  like the bricky keep that corner plumb ,got it?"

"Yes ok now I'm a bricklayer. Come on bring me mortar and throw me the level and plumb line we have a deadline to meet ."laughs Junior
