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.

Turning Your Wait

A Child's Lesson in four directions
(Who wants to just stanza?)

Twirly-queue wandering
from here to there and back again

Ballerinas on point
and clowns with noses
whirling and running around
willy-nilly, according to their own discipline

Everyone waiting for logic to set in
common sense to take control
meanwhile, the winds of change
keep blowing--flipping circumstances

And the landscape surprises
at most every turn
