Sketching outside this church is rather difficult. There is no place to sit, the traffic is relentless and I basically had to stand in the pedestrian way to get this view. As I stood on the street corner, trying to understand the correlations from the interior to the exterior facade in this sketch, one person who passed excitedly spoke to me in Italian. I don't speak much Italian and when I made that clear, in broken English he asked, "you know Borromini?" Enthusiastically I stated I did and we shared a moment of connection beyond our inability to communicate with words. I'm always pleased and amazed at the way drawings can communicate when words can't.
