    Last night, I was initiated as an Entered Apprentice and it was one of the most awesome things I have been through. It made me just want to learn so much more and get to Fellow craft as soon as I can so I can be more involved in the Lodge. I had posted in here before, and gratefully appreciate the advice I received from the Brethren who helped me.

    I recall a friend who explained to me about not traveling too fast to sacred sites. He said traveling too fast meant that people were not accepted by the site and did not experience its reality. I have certainly seen that at quite a lot of places of pilgrimage.

    Similarly in Masonry. The quality of the candidate is more important than the quality of the ritual team or even the degree attained.

    I'm not rushing to get to the "finish line", for lack of a better term. I am just really wanting to serve and contribute. Plus, I love learning and try to learn as much as I can from the Brothers around me. My lodge is a fountain of information with a lot of Past Masters who are more than willing to teach.

    Although I am 60 years old I did not join the lodge until Aug. 2014. I, too, was fortunate in that I joined a lodge with a lot of PMs willing to take me under their wing and teach me.
