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 Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2010

Shout it out with great enthusiasm
tap your foot with the rythmn of your song
awaken your heart with Spirits prompting
seek your soul in every place

and so with verve
crow cawed his greeting
and with awesome power
he emoted his being
and on and on
the others cawed back
in raucous pleasure

A caucus of birds
dressed deceivingly in black
