Recognition, History and the Masonic Path Least Traveled with the Man and Freemason – Fred Milliken

Fred Milliken is a man who needs little introduction, least wise to anyone who has had an ear to hear the heartbeat of Masonry for more than the last 15 years. With a finger, hand, foot and toe in just about every corner of the digital space, Fred either knows what's going on or someone who does.  Never afraid of tackling the wrongs in the craft, some might say that Brother Fred Milliken is Quixote-esque in his championing of what many see to be the status quo of an immovable force.  But unlike … [Read More...]

Arkansas Prince Hall Grand Master Cleveland Wilson Takes The High Road

We don't get harmony when everybody sings the same note. Only notes that are different can harmonize. The same is true with people. ― Steve Goodier Life's like the piano and the violin, it's about how smart you could play the melodies to make a good harmony. ― Lucy 'Aisy The lessons of life often come hard. It takes years and a lot of hurt sometimes to “get it.” And it takes a giant of a human being to "let go." Such a man is Arkansas Prince Hall Grand Master Cleveland … [Read More...]

Greeting a Stranger

BRYCE ON SOCIETY - Try it. You might even enjoy the reaction you receive. In my travels around town, I've noticed a lot of sour expressions on people's faces. Maybe it's just the snowbirds from up north. There just seems to be a lot of unhappy people walking around these days wearing a sourpuss. In a local restaurant I frequent for lunch, people come in with blank looks on their faces, and exit with the same expression. One would think consuming a good meal would change a person's disposition, … [Read More...]

The Book Of Fate

I just completed a week’s vacation where I did what I love to do most. And that is lay back and put my feet up with a good “escape” book. No heavy reading allowed on vacation.  My favorite “get away from it all,” fiction fantasy escape is a good murder mystery. I am addicted to them.  And among this genre my absolute favorite is the legal thriller or courtroom drama. I have long since graduated … [Read More...]
