Posts Tagged With: Masonic Lodge
Everywhere I go I tend to spot a Masonic Temple or Lodge. The buildings are usually architecturally interesting and often have various Masonic symbols on them. They tend to have a lot of security and I have been yelled at for lingering too long or for snapping pictures of the outside. In Philadelphia I even got the chance to tour one (more on that in another post). I love listening to the stories behind Masonic rituals. The stories blend fact and fiction, but I am ok with that. There definitely is a lot of mystery surrounding the Masons and authors like Dan Brown help add to it. Here’s a small sample of some of the lodges/temples I have seen:
I took a day off of blog posting yesterday in honor of the victims of the Boston Marathon Explosions. It was my version of a moment of silence for them. My heart and prayers go out to the victims, families of the victims, and everyone who witnessed the horrific events first hand. As a girl I watched from my classroom window (located across the street from the World Trade Center) the atrocities of 9/11. I know what it is like to wish you could take the images and sounds out of your memory. I know what it is like to run for your life. I know what it is like to wish that you were safe at home watching on TV instead of being in the middle of it. So I know how you feel. The pain, sadness, and the memories start to fade and blur over time. Though each horrific event or anniversary will temporarily bring them back.
I’m headed to Boston next week. This is a trip I have had planned for months and am not going to change it. I’ve been to Boston several times before and thought I was use this post to show off my favorite Boston memories. I will post pictures from my times in Boston with my college friends and with my family. I will go back to writing about Philly tomorrow.
