That's too bad about his son. I'm still trying to "figure it out" too. I was helping a friend move the other day when had an existential moment. (Actually, that's nothing new.)
It's amazing to me when I hear about people who knew what they wanted to be ever since they were little.
I read Neil deGrasse Tyson's memoir and he knew he wanted to be an astrophysicist after looking at the stars through his friend's telescope on top of his Bronx apartment building. He was around nine years old. Now, he heads the Hayden Planetarium in New York. He's sometimes called "The Black Carl Sagan."
