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.

Life's Challenges

Leaping like leopards
through hoops of the jungle
Tackling fear as prey
with claws of prayer
and faithful surrender
Sometimes, life's challenges
help bear witness to courage
Instigating catharsis
in the wake of tough circumstance
Excitement in the backwaters
of personal choice

* Marshal was out of town for around ten days, so there has been a gap in napkin posting. We're back now.
