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.

White Hot Halo

Either a halo
or white hot wild fire

Hair flutters on unknown breezes
as he traverses the inner circle
winding up the altar of Life’s gifts

Passionate eyes ablaze with beauty
like shooting stars
riding on zephyrs of harmony

He is a vision of Shiva dancing
arms akimbo in directive gestures
grounding with each footfall
in gratitude for the Earth

He weaves the web of Live with voices
The song, Oh, the song of infinite Love

Such sweetness fierce
cracks open the heart with tears of delight

Happy 79th Birthday, Doug!
