Auld Lang Syne

As 2008 comes to a close and 09 looms on the near horizon, I wanted to take a moment out of the holiday with family to say thank you to all of my brothers and readers who have happened by this humble blog in the past year.

This last year has been a trying one, with some significant losses in my own personal life, and some new ground broken in Masonic communication. But with the exciting highs and the saddening lows, it’s been an exciting roller coaster.

It seems most apt to look at Br. Robert Burns tune Auld Lang Syne with a deeper meaning, especially as I have met and made so many new friends (both brother and non) that to each of them I offer a “cup o’ kindness” and say thank you for your friendship, fraternity, and fidelity.

And, to that growing light on the horizon, I look forward to what 2009 brings; its challenges and triumphs, I hope you’ll join me on its path to the brighter future in light.

Travel Light.
Greg Stewart - aka Masonic Traveler

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind ?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days o' lang syne ?

CHORUS:

For auld lang syne, my jo,
For auld lang syne,
We’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.
And surely ye’ll be your pint-stowp !
And surely I’ll be mine !
And we’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

CHORUS

We twa hae run about the braes,
And pu’d the gowans fine ;
But we’ve wander’d mony a weary foot,
Sin auld lang syne.

CHORUS

We twa hae paidl’d i' the burn,
Frae morning sun till dine ;
But seas between us braid hae roar’d
Sin auld lang syne.

CHORUS

And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere !
And gie's a hand o’ thine !
And we’ll tak a right gude-willy waught,
For auld lang syne.

CHORUS

Happy New Year.
