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.

What Do You Say?

“Embrace the impossible,”
was all that she said
Yet like a digging vole
it got ensconced within his head

So blessings came and went
and miracles happened when knees bent


Life stretched to encompass
experience rich and deep
whenever ideas and actions
like a fine cup of tea steeped

• • •

One word, two, or maybe, three

can change the world, and do
every day, all the time

So, what do you say?
