Indians scattered on dawn's highway bleeding
Ghosts crowd the young child's fragile eggshell mind
Welcome to Dawnshighway.net
Brad Durham is making a film, Dawn's Highway, about the tragic accident Jim Morrison witnessed here in NM as a child. Apparently there was some dispute as to whether such a thing really happened or whether Morrison had exaggerated the event. Really I just always assumed it happened the way he said it did and that seems to be the conclusion the film makers came to. You can find out more about the film at the link above.
Jim Morrison is a part of NM esoterica. Aside from the accident, there is his house here in Albuquerque. I feel somewhat sorry for whoever lives there because it attracts groups of teenagers and others several times a year, for vigils and/or seances. I remember going there several times as a teenager. Jim's birthday, death day and Halloween are the popular times to visit. It is nothing like the crowds at his grave, but I am sure it is annoying if you live there.
No, I never saw Morrison's ghost, but some have claimed to or to have made some sort of contact with his spirit. Obviously they are lying since everyone knows he isn't really dead. :-)
