    I've been refereed to this forum by a brethren from another lodge. I'm not very good at these intro posts, but I'll have at it.

    The Name's Seamus. I was made a mason in a right and recognized lodge in Madison CT (madison no. 87) and moved to Philadelphia soon after. I retain my membership there and have recently graduated from college. I work now at the Masonic Temple in Philadelphia (the really really big one) for the Museum (mostly doing tours). As for my masonic life, last month I started my Journey in the Royal Arch and was made a mark master.

    In my off time, I'm a writer (won't say I'm a good writer), reader and musician. I write/record too much music and have no intention of stopping (all of it I release for free, if you like ambient, drone or soundscapes, go here: http://daysrunaway.tk)

    I play the violin, cello, guitar, bass, clarinet, piano (& am working on trombone and flute).

    or you can just listen/watch here:

    Anyway, I heard this was a great forum. I look forward to talking to everyone/getting to know some new brothers!

    I may actually see some of you if you head out to Philadelphia and visit our beautiful temple!

    haha thank you! Very nice forum here. I can't help it but I've already made a few posts.

    also, I understand totally that my songs may not be anyone's cup of tea (It's a niche audience) so feel free to totally ignore it (you, or anyone else hahah, just happy to be here & say hey)

    I won't lie, the Trombone is giving me the hardest time. I've been told my mouth is too big (hah).
    I've managed one song with it:

    I'm actually quite proud of it and by coincidence alone, it's called 'Dallas Winter'.

    I've got to upload the picture of me and Bro. Ernest Borgnine (who was also a connecticuter and a really great guy).

    This is what I see as I go into work every day.

    That is such an absolutely beautiful place Brother, I've never had a reason to go to Philly, until now that is. I definitely need to come visit that amazing hall.

    hahah I got lucky, that's how I got it. There was an opening and I had weeks until I had to renew my lease or go back to CT (I just graduated from college). I sent them an email saying "AHHH I'M A CONNECTICUT MASON AND I NEED A JOB" (and something else, it was much more tasteful and not as desperate) and, welp, I got it.

    And this is what I saw as I went into (and see every day) work this morning:

    Also, if anyone here is going to be visiting philly, please call ahead and check tour times. It's heartbreaking leaving work and seeing a brother who missed the tours by an hour and has to leave the next day!

    Note, we don't even let our own members wander the halls during the day without a tour. At night, however, the place is hopping (almost constantly, monday-thursday, two or three lodges will be meeting every night)
