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.

Each day a prayer

A walking prayer for all
rising up through the bones
circulating in the blood
infilling my being

Creator, open our eyes
that we may see the truth
Open our ears
that we may hear the truth

Make our hearts strong
that we may walk in a good way
on the rough and rocky road
of truth on this planet
