  • This is an audio collage portrait of the poet WJ Ray of Willits, California. I have always enjoyed listening to his voice since I first met him over 30 years ago.

  • WJ Ray has been a homesteader, husband, parent, author, and producer of cultural events in Willits, California for almost forty years.  He considers poetry sacred communication rooted in daily experience.  The mystery arising out of its sound becomes the hearer's own.
