True To His Own Spirit


Listening to Jim Morrison’s father and sister is surprisingly moving and beautiful. I remember reading he said his father was dead and I assumed his father and him disliked each other but now I think he had other reasons for saying that, theatrical rock star reasons useful to his time and place.

I like this bit of Jim Morrison poetry

I can make the earth stop in
its tracks. I made the
blue cars go away.

I’m lucky I had my older brother’s record collections when I was a pipsqueak. I listened to My Wild Love at least 11 million times while my contemporaries in junior high were gushing over Aerosmith or 10cc. ugh.


This is kind of special too. Jim Morrison saying in the future people might make music out of electronics and maybe one person with a lot of machines…
