I am less disheartened than I was.
If you look at the following link:
http://forum.srmason-sj.org/printthread.cfm?Forum=6&Topic=438

you will see that we aren't the only ones feeling these issues in Freemasonry.

I knew that.

But it's widespread in the US.

Esoterika Lodge #316 in Washington State
St Alban's Lodge #1455 in Texas
The Lodge of the Nine Muses #1776 in DC

As more and more lodges spring up, or groups wanting them spring, it will become more and more of a phenomenon.

As Arlo Guthrie once said (and with apologies for one of the derogatory words Arlo uses)
You know, if one person, just one person does it they may think he's really sick and they won't take him. And if two people, two people do it, in harmony, they may think they're both faggots and they won't take either of them. And three people do it, three, can you imagine, three people walking in singin' a bar of Alice's Restaurant and walking out. They may think it's an organization. And can you, can you imagine fifty people a day, I said fifty people a day walking in singin' a bar of Alice's Restaurant and walking out. And friends they may thinks it's a movement.

So, I propose we start meeting again, maybe simply online at first ... maybe at someone's house.
Simple stuff, where we don't need to pay for the building.
Still pay our dues, establish an account, whatever.

Get some more guys to show up.

And then ask for a meeting with the Grand Master in Massachusetts.
Ask him for support for a Traditional Observance Club. Not a Lodge, but a club.
Get GL approval to investigate the principals, and try to attract likeminded Masons.
Eventually, maybe not right away (and I have to accept, we may not see 25 consistent members in one year, or even two ... but we'll see them), we'll have what it takes. If it takes longer to get to Lodge status, that might be good. Gives us time to build up funds, get regalia, investigate time and place of meeting.

I don't want this project to die.

"Rural Lodge is hosting a large 2-day event on 9/7 and 9/8.
Approx. 300+ guests are expected each day. The GM and his suite are
coming on 9/7 but not on 9/8.

I would very much like you and other Esoteric-minded brothers (and your
spouses, friends, and families) to consider yourselves invited and
welcome on either or both days.

9/7 ceremony starts at 6pm sharp. 9/8 ceremony and installation starts
at 4pm sharp. Guests are being asked to arrive 30 to 60 minutes prior.

Both days wil be filmed. People will be invited to be interviewed. Half
the crowd will be from the community. The rest are our members and
reps from nearly every Masonic body... On Sat., they will be in full
regalia of their particular body.

Please come. And encourage other esoteric-minded Masons to do so, too.

Fraternally,

Steve Whitmore
Master-elect"
