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.

Hopeful Kites

Pitching our dreams
to the winds o’er the cliffs

Above the valley
of the unknown

They fluttered and flapped
as they fell into the updraft

Our hopeful strings attached
they rose like colorful kites
on the warm breezes
of our breath

Glistening, sparkling in the sunlight
glowing like helium balloons
in the night
