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.

Natural Alchemy

a pebble in the shallow water
enough to fill to overflow

a drop of magic elixir
the basis of life in physical form

nature’s alchemical formula
with a pebble for your thoughts
you anoint your future, your days…

a string of golden beads
from the past of black and white

may you know your golden nature
may you lead a golden life
