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.

Alligator Lizard

A visitor in my garden
the lizard appeared on the wall
just sunning and all
and getting a drink near the hose
Alligator lizards
tiptoe-ing through my consciousness
holding still for eternity

In each moment between
holding still in all brilliance

Thinking lizard thoughts
and warm...
