I have loved Detroit ever since i visited as a young girl. There is the beautiful degradation that i had never seen before. Southern Ontario is so different. I guess i grew up in privilege, but always knew there were other ways to live.
It is this overwhelming longing for the working class that has led me to love Diner's, Johnny Cash, and 'different class' by pulp. I love how when people stop paying attention nature takes back space.
Well a hilariously adorable young dad takes photos and writes about Detroit on Sweet Juniper!
Apparently Jim has a photo of a Tree growing out of abandoned school books.
In an interview on the radio with Jian, Jim explains that he wanted to raise his kids in a place that looks like what the rest of the world looks like. His most recent entry is hilariously cute, thank Q for binging me to this great website.
