“Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.”  — Jim Morrison of The Doors

1971, yes, that was the year. Forty years ago Jim Morrison was found dead in his bath. Forty years ago! A long time ago, but for some of us it seems like yesterday. He was buried four days later in Pere Lachaise in the company of literary greats such as Marcel Proust and Oscar Wilde. What is it about life that allows so much to come out of so little time?

Forty years after his death it is even more obvious that one of his quotes is so true: “Whoever controls the media, controls the mind.”

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