It's a technique from an e-study course offered by Shelley Klammer http://collageforself-discovery.com/
It takes maybe an hour each morning to rip up some images, assemble and own them and write.
It's not a thoughtful process - it's an instant identification of my current state of mind.
I've learned in the past week that whatever images "land" on my page are me.
So this morning, having struggled to put words or feelings into any order at all since the Christchurch earthquake and now the Japanese quake and tsunami, this is what is on my page.
I am Anger
I am the scream of the buried
I am the snarl of the lost
the Dead and Undead
I am the hope against impossibility
of an olive twig on a bare branch
