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.

Grateful Toes

I am grateful for my toes
As they wiggle to and fro

And help me keep my balance
As I walk my path in life

Sometimes I just move tippy-toe
Rooting with each light step

Aware of the living connection
Held onto the earth in toe’s grip

Other times I treat my toes
To a walk in the grass or mud

Giving thanks to them
For helping make life so good
