Masquerade

Not many kids who played tuba in band,

— learning their parts only by ear,

because they couldn’t read music —

would dream of going to another country,

where he/she didn’t speak the language,

to attend a famous conservatory,

in order to become a composer.

Thankfully,

Aram Khachaturian

didn’t let any of his circumstances bother him.

People, of all ages, need to reserve to themselves the right to dream, to learn, to become. At first it may seem as if you’re just masquerading as that which you wish to become, but every role in life starts with just trying on the clothes.
