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.

Turn the Phrase

She likes to futz
in the kitchen with flavors
and the clean dish

In the garden with ivy
and the occasional veggie

In the studio with pen and ink
and big brush on canvas

And, most of all,
in the turn of the phrases
and singing heartsongs
with the man in her life
