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 Dalliance

A dalliance a day
just gazing at the sun
early morning ritual
standing on the earth
breezes kissing cheeks
grateful for the gift of life
grateful for this day
grateful for the warmth of sun
and his loving light
grateful for my mother earth
and the strength she does imbue
grateful for the winds of change
and the fire of Spirit
a dalliance with Beloved One
