Dispatches from Maine

Just another person of little note writing about ordinary things. That I reside in Maine is icing on the cake.

201st Post and a Meme

I was tagged by Bro. Tom Accuosti at The Tao of Masonry with the "Five Favorite Posts" meme. For the first time in months I looked at my list of blogposts and realized "My Wife the Drummer" was #200. The five posts which I feel most express my blog would be:

  1. Fear and Loathing in the Craft
    This post is my assessment of the hysteria associated with One Day Classes, particularly here in Maine where the issue has been so divisive and has divided our Grand Lodge into two secret political parties.
  2. PDC05: Day Two (The Blackout)
    Living in Maine made the experience of being in the midst of a national news story very exciting. I even received calls on my cell from family asking if everything was alright, woohoo!
  3. Freemasonry and the Catholic Church
    This is a frequently referenced posting. I really need to post a follow-up since events have rendered its content dated. The latest word from Rome is even more stern than before. Though I still have yet to find Freemasonry either a "naturalistic religion" or "plotting against the Church" I continue reading and my heart remains open, as suggested by Karl Rahner.
  4. On Hook
    Fishing with my youngest is among my favorite ways to spend a morning and of those, this was the finest.
  5. Feast of Tishri
    There are few times in my life where someone has actually asked for a copy of my work, be it a paper or a talk. I had many requests for this item.

Once again, I tag "Aude, Vide, Tace", "Tales from the Testosterone Zone", Bro. Hodapp from "Freemasons for Dummies", Bro. Stewart from "Masonic Traveler" and Mike Wilber from ";;;;;; --///.. ll./.---. ..ll ll;;--".

I missed your 1-Day (Fear & Loathing) article. You've presented a good, i.e., well balanced article on the concept.

Personally, I'm still not for them, but right now we have a strong and growing lodge, so I'll admit to a skewed perspective on that.
