I realize that I will not become the Michael Jordan of anything due to this, but I will also not die a Pablo Picasso.
nice insightful post. as an artist i very much get this. sublimation, staying centered, letting go of some level of outward appearances. although i would like to say, i don't think 'calling' necessarily ends at job / career, but that's just me.

also, don't mess with my man picasso! he lived past 90, followed his dream his whole life, made plenty of money, was basically THE artist of the 20th century, was a real man's man, and always had young artists to be his GF's, right up til the end. what's not to like!

i was about to dissolve if he'd simply whipped out a little sign he had handy that said "go to dental school. signed, god."

For real? I thought Picasso's work wasn't recognized during his lifetime and died poor and tormented? Wasn't he the prototypical "starving artist"? I must be thinking about someone else then...
