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.

Wild Hair

The woman with the wild hair
and a moustache
Helped me when no one else
was even looking
Took me under her wing
in the good mom sort of way
With pure humanity
and a spot of compassion
Wove me past corporate
into the heart of the matter
Wild hair flying in undeclared breezes
and smile that never left
