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.

Birth of an Idea

On the cusp of new understanding

In the heart of epiphany

I felt the pinch of sidelong glances

Judgment’s governess askance

Like the pressure of birth

Squeezing my lungs alive

Revelation’s glory comes

Screaming life in to the room

And grace portends

Another gift unto this world
