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.

Hey there buddy,
Ole' pal of mine---
How's your gizzard?
Hope you're doing fine...

You're my best friend --
Call my heart your home,
So I picked up this pen
To write you a poem

Thought it may seem silly
With rhyme and things

Wanted you to know how much joy
You, in my life, brings
