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.

Sugar Candy Glass

The wall of glass sits in my way
the paths to dreams and visions I see

How to get over, under, or around?
A wall so tough, you cannot be free?

Trust, have faith and walk right through
Quit asking why or what or how

Instead, step out, eyes open, too
as horizons open
Sugar candy glass dissolves
when it's all wet...
perhaps it's time for water balloons
