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.

Cloud Horses

Sun came romping out
so it must be tomorrow
Let's once again lean back
and zap scuttling clouds
With thoughts of rabbits
and galloping horses
(the child's game for serious adults)
• • •
Like islands in the sky
equines cavorting in the wind
let's ride our ponies
Our hearts beating
like hooves of our steeds
on misty ground
over wild and untold heights
