My dear, you may know more about the secrets of masonry then you realize. I hope you find your hoodie.
I must say that I treasure my deceased grandfathers Phez and his tiny tiny lapel pin that has a double breasted eagle with an upside down triangle
that enclosed the number 32! These two things, plus a giant 3 foot tall amyethst stone are all I have of his memory. That speaks volumes, IMO
Funny, I had a boss recently who wore his big ole masonic ring and I jousted with him a bit about the brotherhood and I heard later from another
coworker that my boss remarked that I knew more about freemasonry than he did. And nothing that I spoke about was negative in any form.
When I asked my Uncle about the feminine aspect being left out of the brotherhood he responded with the analogy that if you had a great treasure and
wanted to keep it from harm that you would hide it very carefully, would you not? Sometimes I think the brotherhood hides the feminine for reasons
to protect her. I would like to think this is the truth.
But I must admit, both my male members of the fraternity did seem to have issues with thier relationships with women, but I think this was
instilled from famial disfunction rather than being a freemason!
Thank you Mason Mike for what I percieve as a compliment!
