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.

Traveling Somewhere

There is a valley verdant and pristine
between here and there

The road dips round and through it
as I’m travelling somewhere

Meadows of flowers, grasses and bush
shades of green never seen elsewhere
beneath short wooded mountains
and dynamic blue skies

Beauty that takes the breath…

I saw a double rainbow there
once upon a trip through

and only lingered in my mind
to absorb its beauty
as I sped by in my car
