Frank Gehry:

Is starting hard?

You know it is.

I don’t know what you do when you start, but I clean my desk, I make a lot of stupid appointments that I make sound important.

Avoidance, delay, denial.

I’m always scared… that I’m not going to know what to do. It’s a terrifying moment.

And then when I start I’m always amazed, “Oh, so that wasn’t so bad”!

From Sydney Pollack’s wonderful 2006 documentary, “Sketches of Frank Gehry”.
