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.

So Big

It’s so big, it’s so good
I stretch to contain it
until my heart feels it 
could burst

Then, I realize as
open up my real eyes
I can swim in it
I can be full of it

Permeated with all good
with only a thin skin
of personality
of me-ness within all-ness

It’s all so very luxuriously
one good - big good
