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.

Beauteous Feast

Sometimes once….
Just isn’t good enough

As beauteous and wonderful
as it may well be

Or, perhaps, it reflects
lavish playfulness

Either way
the multitude of birds
in the almond trees...
or the blanket of daffodils
on the side of the road...

Feasts for my eyes
and heart with awe
