The Pipe Organ Bug

Someone's first encounter with playing a pipe organ is usually a life changing experience.
They generally never forget the moment that they first placed a finger on a manual, they heard wind blow through a pipe, and an otherworldy sound sang throughout the building.
It cannot be denied that there's something about the pipe organ that's very enduring, if not endearing, to all who have gotten close to it.
Once it captivates someone, it never lets them go.
Like a man with a starving appetite, we will meet people from time to time who have a raging fire going on inside them.
And they couldn't begin to quench it, even if they wanted to.
You can bet these people were "bitten" early on.
Once "the pipe organ bug" bites somebody, they're never the same.
