To the earth we shall return

The mass exodus from urban Detroit that began in the 60s has left huge vacant swaths in the city. Somebody did a huge article last year about how rural landscapes are starting to emerge in areas that were once densely populated (of course I can’t find it for the life of me—was it the NY Times? anyone remember that?)

Anyway, a friend sent me a seemingly related piece by a French documentary filmmaker called “Detroit Wildlife.” My computer is refusing to play videos, but I’ve been assured it’s a very cool way to spend 26 minutes.

Also, my neck is in serious pain. I may be dying.
