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, December 17, 2009

Upon the whispering of the words
the story came alive
delciate gossamer threads
woven to epic proportions
mountains of granite and snow
from simple mounds
stacked one piece upon another
by mole or beaver or even ant
excitement arose in the glint of the eye
the wave of the hand
the painting of the scenery
the telling of the tale
