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 Point

Around and around
Spiraling around in tighter
And tighter circles

Closing in on the point
Sneaking up on it, so to speak

It’s amazing
that conversations like that
Touch on the point
And head back out

Without anyone getting injured
On the sharp point

Still, for that moment,
It stood there
In plain view

Clarity of mind
Sharp as a tack…
