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.

Joyous Determination

Forever so long
little spider
had been cleaning up
the ravages of every storm

Rebuilding, re-grounding, re-attaching
with joyous determination

Today, she decided
she would change the design
and moved a full 6 inches
to the right

Ah! How spiffy,
how exciting
what ingeniousness!

Let creativity flow!
