Waiting For The Sun ~ The Spirit of Jim Morrison

Like many others of my generation, I read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings for the first time during the sixties, and was completely entranced. Like most everyone else, I did not believe it was possible to do this masterpiece justice in a film version. And so I want to add my small voice to the swell of congradulations being offered to Peter Jackson and all the inhabitants of Middle Earth for their well-earned sweep of the Academy Awards. And I also want to say Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for all the blood, sweat and tears which went into creating this masterpiece.

Hello Everyone!

I recently received an email from Cheri Woods, to inform me that she has submitted the application for Historical Landmark status for 8214 Norton Ave. The application will not come up for consideration by the board until late February or early March. There is still time to send Cheri your email in support of Landmark status for Jim Morrison's last U.S. home, and she needs all the support we can give her. Please send your well written email to Cheri at: cheriwoods@elvis.com

For more details, read the story on the website:

Landmark Status for Jim's Last Home

Let's give something back to Jim, by making sure he finally sees some recognition for his talents and his gifts to us.

Hello everyone,

I am writing today to ask your help in an effort which I believe is near and dear to each of us. The Norton Ave apartment building, which was Jim Morrison and Pamela Courson's last address, is being considered for Historical Landmark Status, and the person who has made the application is in need of our help. I have put up a short article about the situation on the website, and I am hoping you will all read it and provide the written email support needed to achieve this goal. The time is short, as the application will be submitted in the next week to ten days. Please pass this on to your friends who are fans, as well as posting this URL on any Morrison related message boards you might frequent. Here is the URL to the article:


Thanks for your support.

As time goes on, it seems the milestones come faster and faster. Wasn't it just a couple of years ago that it was Jim Morrison's 50th birthday? Guess not. Here we are, on the eve of the 60th anniversary of Jim's birth, and with each passing year, he is no less an icon of American culture.

So much about Jim is still a mystery - and will probably always remain a mystery. It only serves to make the man more intriguing! For Jim's 60th birthday, I have added a project to the website which is close to my heart - The Shaman's Journey - an exploration of New Mexico's Hwy 14 - known by the locals as the Turquoise Trail. These days a three lane highway with a speed limit of 75 connects Albuquerque with Santa Fe, but at the time Jim took that now famous motor trip with his family, this 2 lane road was the way to Santa Fe. Amazingly enough, it has hardly changed in the past 50+ years, and offers the traveler a unique adventure through a very different world from the one most people know. So take a trip up the Turquoise Trail from Albuquerque to Santa Fe, and visit a little bit of Jim's world.

We also have several new additions to the Remembering Jim section. One is a beautiful poetic tribute sent in recently by a friend of the website called Ode to Jim Morrison. Another offers some thoughts on the arcane knowledge Jim may have possessed, and I offer a few more words of love and admiration to the being who so inspires me.

So I hope you will take the time to visit Waiting For the Sun. Click on “Jim's 60th Birthday Special” graphic in the Sampler box on the homepage for directions, and enjoy!

Best to everyone for a healthy and peaceful holiday season.

The "doors 21st century" appeared last night on Jay Leno, with Stuart Copeland on drums and a young unnamed (Angelo, I understand) bass player. Ian Astbury did his sad best to be a clown (oops, make that clone) of Jim, and they performed Light My Fire. And so it has finally come to pass, that the Remainders (as I have come to think of them in recent years) have become a tribute band to themselves. Although I have never been a fan of tribute bands, I understand there are better ones.

Hello Everyone!

I hope your holidays were healthy and happy. We had a lovely and peaceful couple of weeks, working around the house and enjoying a little rest.

Some big things are in the works for the website. The Shaman's Journey, which I have been collecting photos and making graphics for for some time now, is taking a little hiatus while I work on a new project which is pretty big as well. This new project is the hub for the "subrealities" section of the site, which first showed itself as a small section called The Sixties Sunset Strip. This new, and main "subreality" is the Be-In, and while I would love to tell you a little about it, I think it best to just say this ... there will be lots of surprises which will come with this section! I also plan to add to the History section in the near future, and of course, more archives of articles and interviews will be forthcoming during the new year.

On a personal note, we finally added a DVD player to our system this Christmas, so I am now enjoying all the Doors DVDs I've been collecting for some years now, and building the website Psychedelic Sixties Store was the inspiration for our holiday shopping spree this year. We are happily enjoying music by Love, Steppenwolf, the Strawbs, Al Kooper & Michael Bloomfield, the Butterfield Blues Band, Dr. John, Dave Mason, the Nazz and others. Some of this music has been on my wish list for several years now, so I would say the spree was a success!

Well, I'd better get back to work now. Enjoy, and take a minute to sign the new guestbook!

It seemed a good day to start a blog for Waiting For the Sun. Here I can share a few (or many!:) thoughts about things related to the website, Jim, or anything else which might be of interest to Waiting For the Sun visitors.

The website update for the 59th anniversary of Jim's birth is in two parts. First is an essay I wrote which begins (and only begins) to address the aspects of Jim Morrison and his life which inspired me to create Waiting For The Sun, and which continue to inspire me every day. This is the first part of the Remembering Jim section of the website. We have another (poetic) contribution by a site visitor for this section, which I will be adding in the near future. I hope many of you will be inspired to write contributions as well! Visit Write for Waiting For The Sun to find out how to submit your essays.

The second part of the update was just for my own pleasure - I love playing with my "pictures of Jimmy" to (sort of) quote the song, so I decided to share some of these on the site. Laciefae's Coloring Book is for photos which I have manipulated in subtle and not-so-subtle ways - by everything from hand-coloring to wild psychedelic inventions. This album is starting out small, as these pieces are very labor-intensive, but it will grow over time. I hope you enjoy it!
Talk to you soon!
