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.

Seeking Faith

It didn't take a whole lot of effort
or even a moderate amount of thinking
to get to the edge of the cliff
the jumping-off spot
Where you'd like as not stop
to relish the fat fear
while seeking faith
in all the nooks and crannies
Where the words
could not prop you up
trepidating, vacillating
imitating courage
Until you were ready to leap
and lean on your wings
