A Small Piece of Land

When I found this brick covered with moss in our backyard, I immediately began laughing. It reminded me of one of my favorite scenes from a Woody Allen movie. 

piece of land

In “Love and Death,” Woody Allen’s character, Boris, narrates the scene in which another man offers to buy land from his father, Dimitri.

Dimitri pulls a very small piece of land from inside his coat and proudly says, “This land is not for sale! Someday, I hope to build on it!”

As of now, I have no plans to build on my brick.
