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.

Little One

That little one inside
with the big eyes innocent
and wanting to believe!
Is a great companion
on a trip to the beach
or lightly fingering colors
in creative anticipation
And, yet, not someone
to put in charge
on a jaunt toward serious
life threatening business
(Little one says)
"Let's go play some
frisbee, instead."
