Back in May I said I was going to make a decision about what to do with this blog in the next few days. Here it is July and I haven't done a thing with it. Like so many things in my life lately, I didn't get to it. It's because I have too many projects going. In fact, my good friend William J. Hussey has been calling me the "George Jones of Freemasonry" this last year because I skip out on events far too often.
There's only so many hours in the day, and not nearly enough hours to do all the things I've promised I'm going to do. So I've spent a little time this last week pondering this problem and what to do about it. In fact it was William J. Hussey (aka the Most Excellent Grand High Priest of Illinois) that gave me that answer on Saturday when we attended an event together. It was a very long event, and when it came time for Bill Hussey to get up and make a few remarks, it was only minutes before the room was filled with laughter. It was a much needed break.

So when I got home, I pulled out my calendar, and I slashed and burned. It's time to get back to the things I really enjoy about Freemasonry. That's being an active member of my two Lodges. That's enjoying the Scottish Rite reunions spring and fall. That's spending time with my friends in Lodge meetings. And that's writing (and writing, and writing, and writing) about this fantastic thing I'm involved in--Freemasonry.
So this blog is going to be focused on the lighter side. It will be a little less research based, and a lot more personal perspective. And don't worry, you'll still find me regularly on the Midnight Freemasons blog as well.
So as I always say to my family when we get in the car . . . here we go on another one of our adventures!
