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.

Plains of Love

In the company of horses
we can ride the plains of love

Seeking the one enthralling vista
where misted mountains
hug chilled and pristine lakes
Or on mundane Mondays
we can ride the dusty trail
past the old abandoned well
On a steed of strength and power
allowing free rein
we can experience the wildness
as we can gallop through unknown terrain
