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.

My Friend

We met in such a casual way
and instantly I liked you
Though times, I wondered
"What the heck?"
Many more times, I've just enjoyed you
It seems forever we've been friends
an eternity I've known you
And in my heart such gratitude
for the opportunity to walk beside you
in appreciation of your being
Someone I can count on
this day and every one
Thank you for being my friend...
