    Man, what an awesome experience. I have so many questions now. My instructor asked me afterward if i had any questions, I told him I had a lot and was looking forward to sitting down with him to talk about the ceremony.
    My uncle came down again from lake summerville to be present and to present my ring. he started talking about all the men in our family....I got all choked up...had to hold back a tear or two.

    But man oh man....WOW. An experience I wont soon forget!

    Welcome Brother....Remember that you get out of Masonry what you put into it. There is plenty of light to be found, and your Brothers are here to help you find it....

    Congrats Brother, there was a thread discussing some books. General consensus was that Freemasonry for Dummies by Bro. Chris Hodapp and The Idiot's Guide to Freemasonry are good starter books. Another good read was Born in Blood by John Robinson. There are other books that can be found in lodge libraries for the serious researcher.

    Oh yes a big congrats. I was so full of questions after raising and wanted to know more about the history of the ritual and meaning of course. Began digging into books, have about 50 on the shelf and 460 in pdf on DVD. I am finishing up Solomon's Builders now, finished Pilgrims Path and Born in Blood not long ago. Robinson is pretty good.

    All the best in your travels from west to east my brother. We are all proud of you!
