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.

Howdy Partner

Partners in life (but not crime)
In celebration and growth
In sadness and sickness
In joy and contemplation

Partners in humor and dance
In cleaning and work
In entertainment and travel
In reverence and strength

Partners for now each day
In tomorrows and yesterdays
In tears and smiles
For a long, long while

Howdy partner, saying “Hi,”
As we traverse this life, you and I
