When you meet Lewis Bartlett, his energy and enthusiasm for life is contagious. You can’t help but find a smile growing on your face as you talk about whatever it is you happen to talk about with Lewis; he just has that type of personality. When you learn Lewis plays the bagpipes – if you know anything about bagpipes – it seems a proper instrument for him: it stands out in a crowd, it’s loud and commanding, and it is an instrument that evokes great feeling crossing a vast range of emotions in its listeners. People tend to either love the bagpipe or hate it – there is no in-between.
Some men there are love not a gaping pig; some, that are mad if they behold a cat; and others, when the bagpipe sings…cannot contain their urine.
– William Shakespeare
A piper with a good instructor learns the following piece of advice – passed down through the ages among pipers – pretty early on:
“When you’re being run out of town, stay just far enough ahead of the crowd to make it look like a parade.”
