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.

Highlighting the big Ta-dah!
or maybe the fancy schmancy To Do
excites and appeals in a positive way
Whereas, all the falderal
the adrenaline rush
of hyper-fearful fictions
The negative spin
the gossipy trash
seems to sell big
As it's adding excitement
to the roller coaster ride called Life
