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.

The God Line

on the rug there is a thread
unfitting, off color, out of pattern
the God line
speaks of our humanity

in the rose there is a flaw
a discoloration, a mis-turning
the God line
speaks of perfection in all things

in my life there is heartache
strife, sadness, fear, anger
the God line
speaks of unconditional love

in all Creation there is Mystery
darkness, hidden places
the God line
speaks of Great Light
