* Up All Night 2021 Edition (December 20-21)

Up All Night! (December 20-21)

For those who are not aware, we at The Cauldron have a tradition of an all-night virtual party/vigil for the December solstice: Up All Night (UAN). Some of us go the distance and stay up from dusk till dawn, others pop in and out as their sleep allows, but everyone has a great time!

This year the party begins at your local sunset on Monday, December 20th, and ends at your local sunrise on Tuesday, December 21st.

More Info: in our 'Looking Ahead' planning thread and on the Up All Night page.

Quote from: Faemon;173172
Is Uum the name of the dragon?


No, the dragon is nameless (and sometimes referred to as "the Nameless"). Since that beast embodies the entropic principle of the universe--chaos--to give it a name or any defined shape would be to impose order on something that fundamentally isn't about that.
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs
