Conair an Cheo started as a path that could be CR-like but with more room for UPG, and less trying to mimic the way things were done and more trying to see how they'd be doing it today. Which, admittedly, is what the CRs say they're trying to do, but I think they tend to get too caught up in the reconstructing bit, without looking at recreating the purpose of the practices.

And then, more UPG crept in than I'd planned (like redoing the pantheon with a modern name, etc). I'm still really interested in how ancient beliefs and ideas can be applied to modern life and practice, so I'm sticking my nose into the process to see what everyone comes up with. Grin

Juni, I guess I'll have to do the "me too" post!

Though UPG informs a great deal of my path, I still approach Brigid (and will approach several new gods I've recently been called to) in a reconstructionist way, and I celebrate the fire-festivals with as many traditional... erm... traditions as I can, in supplement to my own creations.  I'm also interested in the stories and mythology and ancient beliefs being applied to modern living. 

As for the "original" question, I guess I became interested in all things Celtic because of the stories, and because I have strong strains of Irish and Welsh in me.  After I was done with Greek mythology at an early age, I wasn't satisfied enough--the stories just didn't hold that much power for me.  Then I read Tolkien, and even more of Tolkien, and began reading about Tolkien's sources.  I read Norse mythology, Finnish mythology, and finally Celtic mythology... and the rest is history.  Wink

I don't know how big of a role I'll play in this process (probably just lurking in the corners), but I will definitely follow this closely.  I feel like this is important, and that my own path will grow because of it.
