Brick Wall

Have you ever actually run into a brick wall?

I did it once when I was 13 or 14, at speed, when I jumped over a brick wall while running...
not realizing that I was about 4 feet too far to the left of where I needed to be.

I did an upright body-slam of the second brick wall, still moving at a pretty good pace.

Blood, bruises, stitches, aches, and scars. And I was pretty lucky. Another 4 feet and I'd have had a 30 foot drop, too.

I mention this topic at all because there's a brick wall ahead in the revisions I'm working
on and I'm trying to avoid that second brick wall *and* the 30 foot drop.

I will return to previous topics in the next few days. Not tonight though, and possibly not until Monday or so.
