by Sìle* Kym Lambert, or Saigh**, these days. I spent several years
"wandering" as a Pagan and witch, from about the age of nine until my
20s when in the mid-80s I found a coven, an offshoot of Alexandrian
with a Celtic focus, where I felt at home with the people. Despite
complications in the group, I was initiated to first degree.
was at this time that an
became predominant in my life and I soon felt pushed to follow a more
culturally focused way. This led to the whole "Celtic Reconstructionist
Paganism" thing. A few years later, in the early '90s I had a
show up and married a Heathen and ended up with this whole Gaelic
Heathen thing. I have a degree in women's studies with a
Celtic culture and the warrior path.
After some experimenting with group dynamics
returning to the isolation of the Great North Woods, I now am focused
on the concept of the Outlaw Warrior/Fianna and write about it a good
bit, mostly at Scáth na Feannóige.
Back in the dark ages before everyone had the internet, I
wrote for some hard copy Pagan publications including THiNK!,
Harvest, Tides and SageWoman..
In 2013, I returned to hard copy with an article in Keltria Journal #43
and in 2014 I became a committee member and writer for Air
n-Aithesc. My essay "Musings on the Irish War
Goddesses" was originally published in Bibliotheca Alexandrina's By
Blood, Bone and Blade: A Tribute to the Morrígan.
I have returned to personal fitness
although not real ambitious on this in the current economy.
certified again will help with some of the writing I'm doing, however.
And I am the Saigh of The Sarah Connor Charm
a strange physical feminist fan group which involves putting things our
members are really doing in a semi-fictional context. Some of my
fitness writing is on the SCCS blog.
We moved back to the North Country to homestead
and to have horses
Yes, the name is actually Julia, but I have taken to using the Gaelic
form, which I might eventually change legally. IT is pronounced

Aaron is reticent. He is a Heathen dedicated to Thor.
