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.

Javelina's Truth

When pondering peccaries
or the curly taste of prickly pears
the mind’s eye view may broaden

New vistas of delightful things
open up the scope of understanding
or, at least, a bit of insight


Cut to the truth
like a javelina’s tooth

Let the spiky spines
of honest instrospection
be chewed up
along with the rest
