Marc Olmsted: Poet, Writer, Urban Saint

blogcover2.JPG

Marc Olmsted, aka The Trash Whisperer sets a good example for those who live in Loz Feliz and see him picking up other people’s litter. He has a piece about this altrustic activity in the Los Feliz Ledger, which he’s thoughtfully scanned.

See, Olmsted is really into that whole clean and sober thing, because he’s a writer who did some time in prison, got straight while staying gay and writes poetry while making the world a better place. And he wrote this:

I am not responsible for what goes on in the world, I have little control over what other people do. But I can choose and be responsible for my reaction to everything. In fact, I can even choose joy on daily basis.

He’s picking up other people’s coffee cups, cigarette packs, and sometimes, report cards.
