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.

Untamed Adventure

Into those wild places
In the dusty corners of my mind

I trek on occasion
when life seems a bit mundane

Tracking down the improbable dream
seeking out traces of inspiration
and jiggy little outbursts of glee
• • •
So much important stuff
bargaining for my attention

Time for untamed adventure…
