Diary of a Writer

Ask me anything   A celebration of art, culture, Detroit, urban farms, the bees, beauty in the decay, the world at large. Whatever catches my fancy. My memoir, A Blue Moon in China, is coming in November, true story of the two months I spend traveling "hard-seat-style" through China in 1988.

    Drove by #PackardPlant today. All I got to say is FeenadoPalazuelo has a Big Job ahead of him. 40 acres of buildings in ruin. This should be very interesting. #detroit

    I have a picture of these smokestacks from the late 80s on my website. Seeing always brings me to Back in The Day. That’s how people describe that decade in the Cass Corridor. It’s been renamed Midtown as part of the city’s big makeover. (I do my best to describe those days in my memoir A Blue Moon in China in a chapter I call Detroit.) #detroit #urbanscene #backintheday #abluemooninchina #blatantselfpromotion http://www.elizabethpilar.com

    I’m beginning to think that it is the callus that help with intonation. Or maybe it’s simply practicing enough to form them… Hum. #violin #stillpracticing #music  #fiddle #soundingbetter (a little) #bucketlist
