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.

Peace Troubadour

** Dedicated to Pete Seeger, Truth Warrior and Peace Seeker **

Ever and always the wise elder
the troubadour of peace
awoke freedom in our hearts
and brightness in our steps

Whirling in rhyme friendly
and weaving words of wisdom
he led multitudes
in a dance of dignity

Simple truth was his diet
Peace fell from his fingertips
and I know that he is flying now
elixir of courage upon his lips
