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.

Double Rainbow

From the new vantage point
on the rise
as we approached the rest of the day
in chatty conversation
and non-vehement arguments
there appeared the double rich rainbow
so clear and colorful
our mouths were stilled in awe
How is it my heart remains
beating steady in my chest,
as the tears flood my cheeks?
Simple beauty...
