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.

One of Countless First Steps

Opening to receive
an abundance of all good
is a service to everyone

As it clears the channels
of give and receive circulation
the lifeblood of thriving

The blossoming of a life’s path
the brilliance of epiphany
the miraculous unfolding

The current first step
on the journey of a lifetime
