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.

Precious Weave

An old yarn dyed and tied
in knots anew
knitted brow expressing
heights and dips, ins and outs

The fabric of our lives
intertwined threads
laughter and friendship, sadness and joy
woven together in patterned colors

You are precious to the weave of my life
without you, the cloth would be
weaker, less intricate

With you woven in
my colors are complemented
