Mr.Mojo Risin aka Jim Morrison the Poet

If my poetry aims to achieve anything, it’s to deliver people from the limited ways in which they see and feel.
– Jim Morrison

Listen, real poetry doesn’t say anything; it just ticks off the possibilities. Opens all doors. You can walk through anyone that suits you.
– Jim Morrison

Jim Morrison aka The Lizard King aka Mr.Mojo Risin (an anagram of his name) has been another MEGA inspiration to me especially during my formative teen years . He was a poet before he became an iconic rock god and returned to that again before he Returned to The Essence on July 3, 1971.

Morrison began writing in adolescence. In college, he studied the related fields of theater, film, and cinematography.

He self-published two volumes of his poetry in 1969, The Lords / Notes on Vision and The New Creatures. The Lords consists primarily of brief descriptions of places, people, events and Morrison’s thoughts on cinema. The New Creatures verses are more poetic in structure, feel and appearance. These two books were later combined into a single volume titled The Lords and The New Creatures. These were the only writings published during Morrison’s lifetime.

After his death, two volumes of Morrison’s poetry were published. The contents of the books were selected and arranged by Morrison’s friend, photographer Frank Lisciandro, and girlfriend Pamela Courson’s parents, who owned the rights to his poetry. The Lost Writings of Jim Morrison Volume 1 is titled Wilderness, and, upon its release in 1988, became an instant New York Times best seller. Volume 2, The American Night, released in 1990, was also a success.

Morrison recorded his own poetry in a professional sound studio on two separate occasions. The first was in March 1969 in Los Angeles and the second was on December 8, 1970. The latter recording session was attended by Morrison’s personal friends and included a variety of sketch pieces. Some of the segments from the 1969 session were issued on the bootleg album The Lost Paris Tapes and were later used as part of the Doors’ An American Prayer album, released in 1978. The album reached number 54 on the music charts. The poetry recorded from the December 1970 session remains unreleased to this day and is in the possession of the Courson family.

Here are 2 songs/poems from the last of his poetic works American Prayer .

Enjoy !

PHILOSOPHERS’ STONE

The philosophers’ stone (Latin: lapis philosophorum) is a legendary alchemical substance, supposedly capable of turning base metals, especially lead, into gold ; it was also sometimes believed to be an elixir of life, useful for rejuvenation and possibly for achieving immortality. For a long time, it was the most sought-after goal in Western alchemy, meditated upon by alchemists. The Stone was the central symbol of the mystical terminology of alchemy, symbolizing perfection, enlightenment, heavenly bliss, theophany and of the Christ. The discovery of the philosopher’s stone was known as the Great Work.

In Latin, “philosophorum” is the plural genitive and translates to “of the philosophers”, not “of just one philosopher”. A more accurate spelling therefore is, “Philosophers’ Stone”, not “Philosopher’s Stone”.

BJORK – Wanderlust

Bjork is an artist that is a MEGA inspiration to me because she has crafted her own world of soundscapes and visuals  from her imagination and manifested them into the physical realm … she is MAGIC .

“Not all those who wander are lost.”- J.R.R. Tolkien

wan·der·lust

n.   irresistibly strong desire to travel or wander.

[German : wandern, to wander (from Middle High German) + Lust, desire las- in Indo-European roots).]

Welcome to The World of  WANDERLUST where we show you

Traveling Without Moving…

Is everybody in?
Is everybody in?
Is everybody in?
The ceremony is about to begin.

Wake up!

You cant remember where it was
Had this dream stopped?

Awake

Shake dreams from your hair
My pretty child, my sweet one.
Choose the day and choose the sign of your day
The days divinity
First thing you see.
