Yes, this rant comes up every so often. Nobody needs or is entitled to anything specific in life. I told this story many times. In my young days I went to Turkey which was back then, as it is now, a country where for much less money than in Europe you could buy all sorts of things (and they didn't have jeans at the time and they would exchange a lot of things for jeans) .
Anyway, I was in a carpet shop and this guy had a silk Shiraz carpet which I really liked. I asked for the price and he told me one which sounded outrageously high (compered to other , lesser, carpets that he had). I was shocked and told him that the price was too high. " yes" he said " it is dear, but you can live without one of these carpets".
I couldn't fail the logic of it. A carpet or a saxophone are not one of the necessity of life (as food or water might be) in as much as you might need one but nobody NEEDS a specific one and if you cannot afford that one you can certainly afford another one which will perform the required function all the same. What the vendor meant was that there was no immorality involved into asking an high price for a luxury item.
So, I might think that my " art" in driving a car deserves an Aston Martin, but does it mean that I cannot drive a car lesser than an Aston Martin to be a complete person? I might think that my figure requires an Armani suit, but should I go naked because I cannot afford one?
Nobody needs luxury, if you are convinced that that is what you WANT then work , save and buy what you think you need. There is no entitlement in life other than the fact that you've earned something with your work and abilities........and sometimes you have to realise than even with all of this there are certain things that you will never have and yet, your life can be as full as it should be because it is only you who creates a void for yourself which you think needs to be filled.
If you are a great player you are one with or without a ............(fill in the blank with the dream horn of your choice!) if you are not and still can afford one, you shouldn't feel guilty to do so, you probably can afford many things that for other people in the world are just a distant and impossible dream anyway.
