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, Feb. 11, 2010

Once upon a time,
at least a few minutes ago,
there was a little boy
eyes filled with wonder
heart heavy as stone
incongruent, yet integrous
alive but not awake
awake but not aware
awake of aches long past
encouraged through love
and acceptance
to release his heavy load
