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.

Blessing Song

Gathered beneath the trees,

the flowered ones

huge and majestic


on that knob of a hill

where sun baked thoughts

of lazing about

or travel on yachts


There we sang

in full resonant force

of life and with zest

Our voices blessing the landscape

like coyotes in the distance

and there we awoke

a new dream
