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.

Next Layer

What does it take to jump
over the flame of understanding?

Leaping through fear
landing in the opportunity
of self-reflection and worth

Whatever it takes
the value is intrinsic

The worth was always there

Merely the compelling argument
or rough joyous impulse
deliver us to our newest redemption

The next layer of the adventure…
