David Lynch on ideas

The Guardian recently interviewed David Lynch about his season at the Manchester international festival. I love this quote:

You’ve often described creative ideas as fish. Are the fish biting at the moment?

Well, as you know if you ever fished, you have to have patience – some days you catch some, some days you don’t. I am fishing now, and I’m gathering fish together, but I haven’t started cooking them. Right now, I’d say the ideas are in the world of sculpture and painting.
