He is likely less than two decades away from his future as a deep sea diver. Or a dive bar pianist.
Or an astronaut or an economist or all of the above.
I feel like it's part of our job to help him figure out who he is and to become that person.
I do fear his ideas are like candle flames, and I don't want a pair of careless fingers to come along and pinch them out, I don't want his curious spirit to be crushed one bit.
There are enough things to weigh a person down, gravity and reality and dive weights, if that's the direction he goes. We are grateful for all of the good people who are helping him find out who he is, and encouraging him to fly or float or just flourish in general.
