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.

Dependable Sun

I'm so glad the sun is not fickle
He doesn't take a moment to contemplate
Gee, should I shine today?
There's no doubt of self purpose there
Do I deserve to burn with a passion for life?

For on sunny days, I love to let my bones warm,
soaking up the warm rays
and when the clouds take over
from my humble perspective anyway
I know in those same bones that I can trust
the sun is there shining
even behind those clouds
