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.

Another Day

Oh Joy!

Another completion
Another beginning
With but a tiny rest between

The days – the daze
They keep arriving
The variation in flavor only

The endless waves
On a seashore of love
Commence once and ever
Over and over

May as well dig bare toes
Into wet sand
And lick salty lips
in soft breezes
