Wow! After joining the E-M@son Webring, the URL for this site was posted to a mailing list for Freemasons in New Jersey. When I came in to work this morning, I discovered many excellent e-mails from list members. Everybody seems to really be enjoying my journal, which makes me feel really good! So, I'd like to extend a special greeting to all New Jersey Freemasons! Thank you for visiting, and please feel free to e-mail me and let me know what you think of my web page.
Tonight I will be meeting with my mentor for the first time to work on my Entered Apprentice memory work. I am not entirely sure yet what this entails, but my mentor is a really friendly man and the secretary of our Lodge. He's been a great help to me throughout this process, and I look forward to meeting with him.
On the web today, I've been reading a couple of interesting sites. The first is the home page for the Ancient and Primitive Rite of Memphis-Misraïm, which appears to be an "extended degree" system similar to the Scottish Rite. I've e-mailed their secretary for more information, as it looks rather interesting. I also found the URL for this page of Masonic clip-art on alt.freemasonry. There looks to be a number of great graphics and pictures there, although some seem to have lost some quality when they were reduced.
