I spent my holidays in the mountains of Colorado, mostly in the Pike National Forest. Amazing friends, great food, breathtaking scenery, and snow and cold gave me a much needed break.
While there, I stayed with one of my favorite Masonic authors, and visited one of my favorite Templar authors. My cup, and journal, runneth over!
I stayed with Rob and Rita Jones. They opened their home to me and basically, I moved in. You know when people say make yourself at home? Or that you are family? Rob and Rita walk the walk and talk the talk! Rita is an amazing cook, animal lover, story-teller, and my sister. Rob is a martial arts master, and I don't use that title lightly, a shaman, Knight Templar, craftsman, and gifted teacher of all things tactical and spiritual.So many talks and discussions on numerous topics made each day with Rob a learning pleasure.
Whether you are a Freemason or not, Rob's book on communication is a must read for all who want a deeper skill of awareness, listening and communicating. You can order it at lulu.com
The other author I visited is Timothy Hogan. Tim is a Grandmaster of the Knights Templar of O.S.T.I. and an in-demand speaker and presenter, world wide, on the topics of spirituality, esoterica, and all things Knight Templar, as well as Freemasonry. Tim met my Sufi master in Cypress, and was the speaker for my grand commandery session. Check out Tim's latest book The Way of the Templar, also at lulu.com
If you get a chance, read these author's works.You won't be disappointed!
