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.

Heart blooms

March your conviction
borne of the heart
into the garden
of joy and peace
There it blooms...

• • •
I am the seed
of peace in my life

I tenderly nurture it
growing peace 
in the tendrils
of my being

in the branches
of my heart
Sending peace seeds 
like fairy fuzz 
carried on the breath
out to the world
