Comments from PhD university science professor (April 2009)
I noticed that you mentioned [PVW on C2C radio interview] that we are somehow born knowing our abilities and what we want to do. I'm certain you are right. I announced at a ridiculously early age that I would have a PhD and work with plants, be a writer and an artist. I've done all three professionally in parallel throughout my life - more than 20 creative rather than academic books with major publishers and as a professional artist for various publishing companies. Getting all three right seems statistically unlikely.
