    Good afternoon bretheren and all. My name is Bro. Jonathan B. Hogue. I am so happy to have stumbled upon this application. I was born and raised in Texas, from San Antonio to Austin to Harlingen. After a few years of college, I decided to join the Navy, and my first duty station was in Washington State. There I found the light and became a member of Fildago Lodge #77, in Anacourtes, WA. I then PCS'ed (moved) to my second duty station here in Northern Japan. I have been here for just over a year now and I enjoy Japan very much. I am mostly happy that I have come across this wonderful amount of information and discussion on all things Masonic, because I have really needed a new way to further myself in the light. I have found that, while I am here, that the learning that I do in Masonry is self paced and can become something that can be put on the back burner to other things. I have a wonderful family and enjoy spending the time that I get with them, and now with this in hand, I have found a new spark to light a new fire in my Masonic studies. Thank you to the founders and to all who contribute to the content. Hopefully, in the near future, I will be able to contribute to this site so that I may help others further themselves in Masonry. Thank you and good evening.

    V/R,
    Bro. J. B. Hogue
    Fildago #77 Anacourtes, WA

    Welcome aboard, Bro. Hogue! I agree with your comment that Masonry is self paced, and it's one of the big reasons I appreciate the fraternity. Once you've learned to say "no" when appropriate (an important lesson!), you really start to control how much time you invest. Have you had a chance to visit any Lodges in Japan? I'm sure it would be most interesting to compare the Washington esoteric work to that of Japan.
