A few days ago, a visiting cousin and I went to the cemetery islands on the day of the dead, and on the way we stopped in the Gesuiti. I returned to the Gesuiti a few days later, since I was thinking about the twists and curves of the baldachin and its green serpentine column, and the green and white marble inlay throughout. I made a few drawings. Saturday, I went back. And that same day, I bought borlotti at the market. Sunday, I shelled the borlotti to make a soup, and spent the rest of the day making drawings of the pods.
