Imagine how you would feel, standing on top of this mountain on a clear day, towering over everything in your field of view, your mind free to move in another world, one of infinite choices in communion with the heavens where creation has its home, and conscious of the powers at your command.
Imagine how you would feel, if you were an air force pilot sitting in the cockpit of a B-52 stratofortress bomber, you've started your engines, they're fully loaded with fuel, you're looking up the runway with great anticipation, with your hand on all 8 throttles, and you knew you were about to take yourself and your crew to a place higher than the clouds.
Imagine how you would feel, if you were a navy captain standing on the bridge of the largest nuclear powered aircraft carrier in the fleet, you're looking out the bridge, the ship is ready to leave port, and you knew you were about to take this floating city of a vessel and its entire crew out to sea.
Now multiply that feeling by a hundred.
That's a little of what it feels like, when you're an organist, to sit at the console or key desk of a large pipe organ.
