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.

Playing Small


The tabby was a big fat cat
who commanded attention
by his very presence
 
Yet, he thought of himself
as still a little guy
 
He would hide under the easy chair
where only his head fit
 
He was convinced
his backside was invisible
as it stuck out for all to see
 
Sometimes, others just don't see us
the way we see ourselves
in our playing big or small
