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.

Dancing Breezes

With birdlike beak, he sniffed the air
flapped his arms and stretched
then fluttered off to the next thought
which was very similar to the last
• • •
In a nest of pregnant stillness
where feathered thoughts circled
enough peaceful song arose
to keep him centered and content
• • •
On breezes still or dancing
his spirit soared in noisy silence
in anticipation of yet another day
