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.

Wings of Change

The affinity of angels
like a glue that holds together
keeps belief in loving miracles
afloat on wings of change

May the blessings of the ages
surround your presence
like a jeweled quilt of light

May the courage and persistence
of the eagle dining in the road
steel your stance in times of need

On the top of mountain peaks
or in the bed of meandering streams
the awe-filled heart
is nourished and loved
beyond any man-conceived measure
