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.

Dancing Heart


Sensing something different
she held perfectly still
as perfectly as she could
 
While her dancing heart
contemplated this new
experience of transition
 
Intrepid dreamer
awakening to a fresh day
doe eyes drifting into focus
 
Riding on the hem
of vision's misty cloak
