If anyone calls, Say I'm designing St. Paul's

St. Paul's Cathedral completed 300 years ago is very beautiful and utterly unspiritual. The faint reverberation of Catholicism makes the other cathedrals moving despite their polite, tasteful, slightly depressing Anglicanism. But Wren is sublime. The Royal Maritime College Greenwich is the finest building in England and I always regret being talked out of going to Trinity by my damnable headmaster.
