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.

Exterior Decorating


Decorative phrases
fill the sensitive body
like paisley vines on the march
under skittish trees
 
Tickle the plains with herds
of words and topics broad
instigate emotional mobs
twisting concepts to fit the story
 
Art or craft capable
of painting hints of mystery
blatant lies lined up single file
or stamped portraits from broken molds
 
An abstract for
the logical mind
