There are seven days in the week & someday is not one of them!

Having found a passion for Freemasonry, Martin, who was at the time running a book distribution company, felt he would like to put more into the Craft and so approached David Allan to see if there was an opportunity with such an eminent firm as Lewis. He was first offered the position of Marketing Manager of the Lewis Masonic imprint in 2005 and later promoted to General Manager in 2012. Through his work with Lewis Masonic Martin has made it his duty to help spread the good works of Freemasonry and promote a positive image. ~ Martin Faulks GM Lewis Masonic Publishing

The Hermetic Art Of Memory

During the intellectual swirl of the mystic Renaissance, the phrase Art of Memory referred to a specific set of memory disciplines and techniques that had evolved from classical Greek mnemonics. This was a method whereby one would create a memory palace in the mind. This could be based on a real or imagined place that, using intensive imagination, one would build up in the memory to the degree that it could be visited with ease. This memory palace could then be used as a kind of memory storehouse. By placing items in different locations in the palace one could recall them with ease when the palace was next visited. In order to make the images memorable the characters, figures, or items used were often dramatic and could sometimes be quite striking to contemporary sensibilities.
