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.

An Old Friend

An old friend from long ago
you just showed up on my doorstep

With a smile and a hug
and all the spunk and verve
you always had

As it it were just yesterday
that I saw you last

My heart didn't know the difference
though my eyes perceived the truth
of a lifetime spent living fully
a vibrant spirit expressing

Welcome back into my life, friend...
