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.

Potential Contemplation

Sitting on the shore of contemplation
he let the tsunami of love
wash over him

The look of bliss on his face
incredibly sweet...

One more time, he realized,
another moment appeared

Full of potential
for any kind of experience
he wished to have

*Note: Just to let you know what's been happening with the Daily Napkin, Marshal fell off a ladder three Sundays ago and has not been going to work for the last two weeks while he recovers from his injuries. His healing is progressing quite well, thank you, and he will most likely be returning to work next week. In the meantime, we will fill in with some past Napkins that haven't been posted before. Our apologies for two weeks of no posting and please enjoy.
