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.

Friend Song

They were buddies
travelin' through life
side by side
singing and dancing
with sadness and gladness
anger and joy...
Even on a foggy morning
when the crows and jays
pursed their beaks in silent
honor of the moist stillness...
They sang in the warmth
of their friendship
silly or earnest
old show tunes or operatic phrases
buddies in Life...
