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.

As the Crow Walks

Speculating on the crows
those that lately let me know
that coyote medicine exists
even in the bird world

(which is actually the same world)


Hop, hop, look quick, hop
the big black bird
plays chicken with my car
hop, hop, quick look, stop

Right in the middle of the road


Crow has a message for me
I think I’ll pay attention

‘cause here comes a bunch of them…
