“The most important thing is that people like us are now who our parents were.
We make the decisions.
We choose to go along with the bushshit that they feed us,
But we have the opportunity to get together.
We know this as punk rockers, that if everyone helps a little bit, it turns into a lot,
And this is what made the changes; why you can be whoever you want with less, and I say less–uhm– negativity that there was twenty, thirty years ago.
We have to continue fighting.
We have to remember those–um– and a lot of us, like, I’m Mexican, but a lot of us are Latinos out here, and we think about those countries a lot; but the thing is, Latinos think about EVERYBODY:
We think about those less fortunate, and we want everybody to think that way.
We want fucking people that voted to Trump to think like us, be open.
I don’t give a fuck, you know, what, what some of your beliefs are–you believe in god, you don’t believe in god– what I believe in is helping each other out.”
[The Casualties, Starving Wolves, Krum Bums]


Michael Ray is a writer, editor, and Generation Y shutterbug. California grown environmentalist and published photographer, “Say Avocado.”

I’m a social media whiz with interests in ecology, environmental activism, Literature, and California culture. I enjoy reading and writing about plant-based living, and document it all through recommended readings lists, audio broadcasts and short films.

In my non-writing life, I like painting, fashion, yoga, and set design. I’m a graduate of Humboldt State University with a BA in English Literature, and was a costumer for the world-famous Humboldt Circus 2012-13. I love Poesy, spoken word and was Poetry Division editor for The Toyon Literary Journal. Curious about current projects? Want to schedule an interview? Contact me at MRDLA1111@gmail.com.

From California with Love,
Michael Ray
