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.

Keep the Faith

He was one hum-dinger
And so was his song

And the winged one flew by
Silently in truth, knowing there was nothing wrong

“Keep the faith,” the birdie said
As ice fogged morning sprung to life
With every crisp footfall

And, he was aware, not afraid
In the quiet hours
Of his early morning moment
