Fascinating rituals, symbols,and initiations. Learnt a lot, enjoyed it immensely, and met many excellent individuals.

I’m a Freemason!

Last night I was initiated into the Freemasons.

I’m now a member of Hearts of Oak Lodge, Brighton, Victoria, Australia.

This is a nautical lodge with a high portion of members with some sort of seafaring background or interest. Its members tend to be rowdy, fun-loving, irreverent rum drinkers of the nicest kind.

Some of my greatest heroes were Masons: Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Adam Smith, John Locke.

My wife’s grandfather, Foreman White (to whom I dedicated this song) was a Mason for 80 years. He died at 102 years of age (1898 – 2000).
