Everything is a Tree

Offset bricks bring a kind of interesting pattern and texture to a boring wall. You can understand why a builder or designer might want it. This is the side of a Mexican restaurant in New Hampshire.

Fancy bricks make for some unintended consequences. For a child who has spent a lot of time in a rock climbing gym, and up in trees, this wall is a breeze.  What should a responsible parent do when she turns a corner and sees her daughter high-five-ing the roof?  Panic? Applaud? Yell at her to come down? Run underneath to be her crash pad, that's what I did.  Her friend made it up and back as well, while her dad watched on, very chill.
You decide.
