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.

Opportunity for Blessing

The little Buddha sat there
on the edge of samadhi
in her baby carrier thingy

Blessing us with 
the opportunity for darshan 
and enlightenment

Handing out contact high like candy
with her countenance...
* Note: Celebrating April 1, we begin a new practice - uploading the napkin itself, rather than just the words. We had some requests and suggestions for that, so overcoming Dena's propensity to demand perfection from herself, we will do this. Do you like this idea? Vote in the poll on the bottom of the page.
