I would like to say first off that is an honor and a pleasure to introduce myself on the blog that inspired me to create my own source of Light in the Masonic blogosphere!
I am M.M.M. from The North Eastern Corner. I am a happily married 33-year old father of three living in a coastal city in Connecticut. I became a Freemason after a life long love of history, philosophy, and reading led me to knock upon the door of the West Gate during a very difficult time in my life. I was raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason over a year ago, and it has been a whirlwind ever since. After a year as Senior Steward, I have been honored by my brethren by being elected to serve as Junior Warden in the upcoming year.
I started blogging after following a link on Brother Greg Stewart's Freemason Information website that led me smack dab in the middle of "Small Town Freemasonry" and the Widow's Son. I thought to myself, "I think I could do that," and started The North Eastern Corner. I am sure many astute Masons want to know why I write from the North Eastern Corner and not the North East Corner, like in our ritual. Well, that explanation is pretty simple; some woman in Carmel, California already had taken that name and since I reside in the North Eastern part of the United States, I thought it had a witty double meaning.
I am staying somewhat anonymous because I don't want my blogging to be affected by having to ask for permission or be afraid of offending the brethren of my lodge (although there are not many in my lodge who even know what a blog is!).
I love the symbolism and esoteric aspects of Freemasonry and that is what I write about, in a Blarney Stone enhanced kind of way. I want to convey to masons and non-masons the great abundance of enlightenment available to brothers if they just do a little deeper investigation into themselves and what is available to all via the treasure that is the World Wide Web. I found all the information I needed to help me with my decision to join Freemasonry on the Internet. We are truly lucky to be alive during such an exiting time.
