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.

Camera Mugging

Sometimes, he has too much fun
Dancing and cracking up
Mugging it up for some non-existent camera

The joy bubbling through
in an almost frantic pace

On those high-stepping days
of Laurel and Hardy moves
and free-flowing morning scat

I appreciate his sense of humor
and the way he occupies
his body in the present moment
