* 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.

Greetings, All!  Dwayne, here!

We all carry around some "baggage", and have made mistakes in our lives.  That, and being Pagan, in the middle of a "Bible-belt", can make it difficult to get out there and meet somebody nice.  Of course we are all "nice, and we are all beautiful -- each in our own unique way  But, while sitting around on my Gov't Disability Pension, I am a trained and certified peer Advocate & Counsellor, for mental health and addiction services clients that don't want to use (or are afraid of) the "System"; so that's the members of Society that I tend to find myself welcoming into my home.  So, I spend a lot of nights alone.

Everybody tells me I'm "a great guy, gentle, kind, and compassionate, with a good sense of humour".  They tell me I'm good looking -- though I find it hard to swallow that one -- And "passionate" -- which usually interprets as intense and overwhelming.

... I hate the loneliness!  But I am terrified of people!  I communicate (dwell) much more comfortably online, rather than face-to-face.  It tends to give a false presence (online) that I am deep and spiritually grounded, to the online community.  But the loneliness, and the insecurities keep quietly eating away at me.  I have tried to find and gather the local Pagan community, but they all seem to prefer practicing alone.  ... I guess Ièm just wondering, if anyone here has the same experiences.

Peace, Hope, & Brightest Blessings!
