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.

The Great Plan

Valued aspects of
a great and intricate plan

They implicated effortlessly
kept appointments on point
for instigations small and grand
Creativity’s hope chest
sits askew – its lid awry

All the ideas leaking  out
infusing everyone willy-nilly
without prejudice or rhyme

Suddenly, there are geniuses
on the street corners
of every single mind

And all the clowns are dancing
as the Great Plan
simply unwinds…
