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.

Hearts Aligned

When we raise our voices together
in harmoniousness
or some facsimile thereof
making joyousness, we align hearts
 
When we all face North
(or East or South or West)
Moving together as one
 
In a line dance of longing
and gratitude, calling the Divine
we align our spiritual focus
 
When we sit together in silence
open receptacles ready and waiting
synergistic energy arises
as we align body, mind, and soul
