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.

From Ninety Degrees

turned 90 degrees – life expanded
with just that little effort
horizons changed
and everything became new

sit on the floor and observe life above you
or view life below from the top rung of the ladder

new perspectives bear fruits
opportunities, opinions, ideas

most important of all
push the Spirit button
allow your beingness to be
flooded by That perspective
