Slower and Better

When pausing mid-ride today to admire my surroundings, I remembered a conversation from the movie, “The Last Brickmaker in America”. After a construction project manager says he can get bricks “faster and cheaper” from another source, craftsman Henry Cobb (Sidney Poitier) counters that he prefers “slower and better”.
What was it that reminded me of that conversation? I’ll give you a hint. It wasn’t bricks.

  1. Steve, I enjoyed the movie. Mr. Poitier displayed his craft (acting) magnificently. His supporting cast was only adequate, but I really liked the story. And I liked the respect it encouraged for craft and working with one's hands.
