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.

Tossing Dreams


How far must I toss my dreams
to be clear of my fears
and my blocks and beliefs and things?
....................................................................
 
Into the Outfield, fallow and weedy?
Where sustenance and nurturing
are catch as catch can?
.................................................................
 
Perhaps it's best not to toss at all
instead, to plant gently in my heart?
 
There, fear's vibration and
the waves of old beliefs
create a song...
 
It's all just vibration, after all
it's up to me to tune it
