My name is Martha Aleo. I am interested in creativity and inspiration, and how they are influenced by landscape, community, tradition, history, philosophy, religion, culture, life experience and access to materials. Don’t forget science and math. They are all related. I intend to focus on those topics in this Blog. While I am primarily a crafter and writer, I do not intend to limit this Blog to crafting and writing. I want to explore creativity and inspiration in relation to all the arts and scientific topics as well.
My reasons are more than academic. I am in the process of unlearning much of what they taught me in school. I am trying to open myself up to looking at (and listening to) the world in a different way. I am searching for my own voice. I don’t know if I’ll find it, but in the end it doesn’t really matter because it’s the journey that’s the most interesting.
