Entered Apprentice

I was initiated as an Entered Apprentice last evening at Cataract Lodge #2.   The ritual gave me insight into how preliterate organizations passed down knowledge.   As a potter, I find the Masonic symbolism relevant to my craft.  
All the participants recited their parts from memory.  If they had trouble, they were allowed to pause, but if they could not remember their next lines, someone offered the beginning of the line for them.
There were four of us, one initiate from another lodge.  We didn't have to memorize anything, but we will have to for the next step.
