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 Thursday, October 22, 2009

What is it about flowers?
Roses and violets, lilies and orchids
daisies and pansies and geraniums and daffodils,
luscious reminders
of lavish abundance,
each cactus blossom a delicate flame
every buttery mullein bloom
a study in perfection
Explore in the garden, even in fall
signposts of color mark your path
through God's prosperity thinking
and sweet attention to detail



*smiling in the face of adversity
*loving unconditionally
*dancing with abandon
*holding life joyously and sacred
*staying conscious

I give you AH!
