The beauty of the craft is we don't care what your religious or non-religious background may be. You just probably won't want to join the York Rite...

Basically recognizing the supreme being is the most important, but you might consider your beliefs as to "afterlife" as well. Such as...Do you believe in immortality of the soul? I have Masonic brothers who are Muslim, Jews, etc.

Yay. You won't be a alone. What's so bad about visiting other countries? Heck, I go to the Middle East and everyone's favorite...France!

I don't want my lack of a schedule to interfere with anyone else.
I travel extensively for work but yet find value in participation (when I can). No one frowns on my lack of attendance.

Go for it. I am in Corpus Christi occasionally for work. Let me know what Lodge you end up joining and I'll pay it a visit.
