I finally got my copy of Somerset Studio and was especially excited about it because I am in this copy. Page 52. My sister Julie Haymaker Thompson has an article about collage pieces she has done based on my poetry. My name is mentioned in the first paragraph!! When I make a poem I use a technique I learned from Nina Bagley, cutting words and phrases from books that call to me. I then put them together in a form that makes sense in my head. My husband does not get them and says they don't make sense or are depressing. Sometimes the message is sad, sometimes hopeful, sometimes a little crazy just like life.
