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.

Delighted Face (Daily Napkin)

So, there I was
caught in a summer rain
 
Clouds and mist to the left of me
rainbow on my right
 
My face delighted
washed gently by God
 
My heart filled up
every fiber tingled, alive
 
When I awoke
to the blessedness of the moment
