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.

Orchestra of Justice

An orchestra of justice
Nature’s rhythms awoke

Played themes of peace
and incomprehensible hope
in lilting tones of possibility

“How could that be,” one wonders
“without control and argument?”

‘Tis simply natural law
as life flows with ease
and rushing grace

Through crags of challenge
and boulders of resistance
