    Masonic Installation Toast

    Masonic Installation Toast

    I was installed as the Master of Lodge St Molios No 774 on 14 October 2023. In my toast to my Installing Masters, I talked about the similarities I’ve always felt exist between Freemasonry and Alcoholics Anonymous.
    I recorded my toast on my iPhone and am publishing the first part of it here, in which I talk about the similarities between the two organisations.
    It’s a topic I’m very keen to go into more deeply and perhaps even develop into a formal talk. If that’s something that you’d be interested in, please let me know. I need all the encouragement I can get to push through the fear!

    A Downward Spiral that Led to an Epiphany

    A Downward Spiral that Led to an Epiphany

    Note: Sorry if you get this twice. I’m still figuring out Substack’s podcast hosting implementation.
    I'm talking through a bit of a meltdown I had the night before and the epiphany that it led to the next morning as I wrote my Morning Pages. I hope that my vulnerable honesty comes through as an example to others of how I'm working to improve myself. I'm well aware of Brené Brown's dichotomy of vulnerability and oversharing, and I know that I straddle that line with a lot of what I make. In fact, I probably go into oversharing territory quite often, but it really does help me to figure things out, and I hope that it can help others too; just like how I felt seen after watching some of Dodie's content and I went on to become rather a big fan of her music after that!

    Looking for wins amongst the losses

    Looking for wins amongst the losses

    I'm off to a good start today. My cold is a bit better, the sun is shining, I recorded a video podcast when I was out with Clover and I got to do my writing on the porch. I examined some behaviour yesterday of which I'm not proud. I can do better. I will do better.
    I put some Jacques Herbin Rouge Hematite ink into my TWSBI Diamond 580 this morning to see how it would look on the Cosmo Air Light paper and I'm quite pleased with how it came out. And I like how the red ink looks in the purple pen too. Nice combo. Maybe I'll commit and fill it right up, lol.
    Practising the Creative Act to Reach Sobriety
    I recorded this in the field of gold when I was out walking Clover this morning.

    How will others find me if I'm not doing anything to facilitate that?

    How will others find me if I'm not doing anything to facilitate that?

    This is day two with my Pebble Stationery Co. A5 notebook with Cosmo Air Light paper. I'm very happy with it indeed! I wrote with the Edelfeder and Diamine Bilberry yesterday and the Pelikan M400 with Fuyu-gaki today. There was no bleed, no feathering and, best of all, no squeaking with the Pilot!
