A blog about cultivating
creativity, connection and contentment
wherever you are
Nan recently launched a blog, HeartWood with the theme of cultivating creativity, connection and contentment. She plans to highlight local artists, writers and other creative types, as well as bring in examples from other locations. In addition to profiling interesting people and projects, Nan hopes to include virtual tours of studios, unusual gardens and innovative dwellings. (Suggestions welcome!)
