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.

Eternal Optimist

Ever the optimist
always doing the “right” thing

Waiting patiently
for the inevitable good ending
right outcome

Putting in ever more elbow grease
effort unceasing

Dealing with cards dealt
finding the lining
or at least hints of it

With smile and hope
and bits of sparkle
