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.

Tapestry of Love

Our Friendship
is a beautiful cloth
woven by the dance
you there me here, me there you here
and connected
by threads of love
all these years
A tapestry of lightness
joy and gratitude
accentuated here and there
by a few small dark lines
for dramatic definition

We are the weaving
not the loom
