Artist reviews vocation arc from 1999 to 2012

Artist Lesley Riley shares a 2008 blog post in today's entry, "More Art Already": "I speak of what I was thinking and doing in 1999 and am struck by how it was such a predictor of how my life has unfolded." She quotes Thomas Moore's book, A Life at Work: The Joy of Discovering what You were Born to Do. Riley describes combining verbal fragments with her art fragments: "The Fragment and quote are circa 1999. Now, almost 10 years later, after finding and living my calling, I am back examining my calling. But according to Thomas Moore, that is exactly what I should be doing, and that’s great news." The 1999 fragment quotes James Hillman's The Soul’s Code: In Search of Character and Calling.
