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.

The Gameplan

On top of my gameplan
all covered with grit
I got so frustrated
that I could just spit

The map that I clung to
was thrown to the side
as God is the pilot
I’m in for the ride

The adventure it has me
I think I’ll enjoy

instead of controlling
or getting annoyed…

(Try this one out to the tune of On Top of Old Smokey)
