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.

All are Sacred

In the shadow of the moonlight
where mystery stalks our thoughts

A palpable encompassing force
creeps beside, around and through

A midnight walk in forest
A solo flight in deep wood
into dreams and deeper things

There the shadows lurk
with not a bit of timid
and sounds arise enlarged
to wreak a cacophony of fears

Still each of us remains a light
and all of us are Sacred

So every nook may be embraced
and each peaceful, joyful, thrill relished
