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.

Following Joy


Positively fascinating!
 
The way life works
when one follows the joy
 
Sliding down the dry grassy hill
on carriages of cardboard
 
Climbing up the swaying tree
until hair and leaves are one
 
Diving in the clear, still pond
near the wide sunning rock
 
So many ways to follow joy
So many ways life just works!
