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.

Crazy Old Coyote

Crazy old Coyote man
slunk around
hiding in plain sight

Watching the silly two-leggeds
as they danced their silly dances
with such serious faces

• • • ○ • • •

Crazy like brother fox
he slipped between bushes
full of his favorite berries

Behind moss covered boulders
no weight upon his shoulders

Observing, smiling, thriving
in his version of the natural world
