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.

Give It to Me Straight

Sometimes, sideways
Is the straightest path

What feels like off the beam
Is merely a tweaking
To get more on track

And then there’s the crab
Walking sideways is straight
Answers lurk in the angle

More important than warp or weft
Is the fabric quality

No thread’s path is absolutely straight
