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.

Heart's Courage

The machinist wept organically
having fallen from eagle’s grace
Bravado continues to control things
instead, fell on his face

• • •

It’s tough when you think
you know stuff and how
to put them all together

To instead allow release in surrender
letting God make it better

Vagueness of obstruction
an aspect of disconnect
Clarity of purpose hinged
on actions of the heart’s courage
