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.

Happy Bugs

The bugs are happy
when we dig into the pile

They run hither and dither
and then hither and yon

Oh boy! Oh boy!

More food for the fodder
more rotting vegetables
enough for the mudder

Happy day in the compost pile
Happy day in the dirt
Happy day in the sunshine
Happy day in the dark
