Most every work day for more than 11 years, Dena wrote a love note, poem or other thought, on a napkin - and tucked it in Marshal's lunch - a ritual of the heart. At the beginning of 2009, Marshal started typing them up. It became our practice to share the Daily Napkin with you, OUR ritual of the heart. Then, in October 2015, Marshal retired, so the whole dynamic changed. Dena took several months to re-evaluate and decide what she was going to do. Since she is also simplifying, she is in the process of incorporating all 8 (including this one) websites into one. With that in mind, the poetry of the napkin is now joined with her art and/or photography images. May you enjoy them. May they feed your spirit.

Daily Napkin for Monday, October 12, 2009

Cerulean with white
and fluffy above
Green as deep as emeralds
blanketing the floor
And here and there and everywhere
turned rust or red or golden.
How rich is that?
Her coat of many colors,
even as the portended
days of grey and frost
prepare to creep in while we sleep.
