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.

My roots are deep
my body connected to the earth
deeper and deeper all the time
My heartbeat a reflection
of Mother's steady rhythm
My spirit is one with all
infused with all the stuff
of the Universe, of Creation
My spark of epiphany
inspired by His creativity
And my heart encompasses all life
surrounded with Love
