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.

Soul Essence

The sweet, sweet aroma
permeates everything
manna for the soul

Essence of heaven on earth
reminder of the sublime
Grace of nature’s flourish
In any of God’s gardens
The aroma soaks in
through every pore
tickles the subtle body

Softening, softening…
