When my son was a HS freshman I took him and a friend to a retrospective of Frank Gehry's work at MOCA in downtown Los Angeles. I was in awe especially of the initial building models - they were built of balsa wood, paper cups, Styrofoam plates, corrugated cardboard cut from storage boxes, Saran Wrap, pencils -- anything and everything. AND they were everywhere, pouring off the walls, flowing down the tables, practically dancing in the halls. And it struck me while I stood there, dizzy from it all - creativity is generous. And joyful. And unselfconscious.
