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.

Mustang Spirits

Hair flying, wild as crows at twilight
children alive and adventurous
played soccer with no rules

Every part of their mustang spirits
leapt over ravines of ignorance
mottled the field with 
 a compelling variety of life's expression
• • •

Run wild for the exhilaration
Seek joy with open arms
Keep peace within the pounding heart
And, know that you are loved
