Minerva's Path

Seeking wisdom, meaning and balance through creativity.


I’m a working journalist, wife and mother to two boys. The crisis in the news industry and subsequent crisis in the newsroom have left me searching for the answer to what it all means.

This blog is part of the quest to find out. I enjoy photography, sewing, knitting, drawing, cooking and creating crazy stuff to stoke my boys’ imagination. I also love writing stories, especially when they tell us a little bit about who we are as a community, and as a species.

I plan to define creativity broadly, in terms of how we approach life, what we create, what we think and more.

When thinking about a name for this blog, I was looking for inspiration, a muse, a mentor. Minerva (known to the world also as Athena) was the Greek goddess of creativity, wisdom and the home. She had not yet garnered her war helmet. It is the former path I wish to explore, to seek my truest and best self. I hope others will share their experiences, as well.

  1. Maria, Lovely, just lovely. I am inspired and declare that 2010 will be my year of Minerva; she represents everything I want my priorities to be for the coming year. Yay! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Maria, This is a great blog! I’m so impressed. I am just starting a blog, myself, and you have inspired me. I, too, feel the need to express more creativity, and I hope in my blog (still too new to tell everyone) I am able to do some of that.

    Thank you!

  3. Maria, this is terrific! I’ve been looking for ideas to stoke my creativity–in fact, it’s one of my NY’s resolutions. Thanks for publishing this!
