Unfortunately, I was not nurtured in the sciences and arts, which I had an excellent aptitude, and had to pursue the latter in later life when I was able to afford it.


That could have been me speaking. I didn't know I was an artist until my mid-thirties, and being able to afford it and nurture it myself opened a new world to me.

Indeed, there was (is?) a great deal lacking in the educational system of the West and I also had to learn the basic necessities of life as well, those being cooking nutritionally, how to properly handle laundry, and personal financial budgeting, which, again, were self-taught because my parents did all that themselves and I guess it just never occurred to them that those important life skills should be taught; What psychological, philosophical, social and daily life skills does the educational system assume the parents are teaching children? - I ask myself.
