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.

Honoring you for your work
the day to day nose to it
and way more
with a cherry on top (not maraschino)

The pulling, the seeping
The trudging, the weeping
The smiling, the joy work

Involving the unfolding
Allowing bigger
Discovering lighter
Enabling growth

Honoring you and me
and all of us…
