Carlos Scarpa, the noted Italian Architect, said “to draw is to see.” Want he meant is that when we attempt to capture an image or an essence with a pen or pencil, we must observe it with far greater care than we regularly exercise, even when we think we are looking closely. The same can be said of writing. Writing forces us to organize our ideas. Even when we think our thoughts are well formed, we find that employing language to express them is an exercise in reorganization and clarification. With this new web site, we will both write and draw. We will provide imagery and explanation that demonstrates what we have been thinking about and by doing so, will better understand it ourselves.
