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.

Rising Sun

In the wheel on the earth
midst the path of our own lives

A new song of praise
rose from your heart

Shared and released
for humans and other creatures
above, below, and afar

We held hands and prayed
for peace, for love
for balance everywhere

And we welcomed
the rising sun on a new day
