Visiting Jim Morrison at Pere Lachaise, says Princess Haiku

Book Researchers Say Photo of Jim Morrison's Ghost in Pere Lachaise is real. This is a must read for Morrison fans. Perhaps he will make a showing on All Hallows Eve.

Jim Morrison has been dead for almost four decades, but a snapshot belonging to longtime rock historian Brett Meisner allegedly shows the Doors frontman haunting his own grave. And now, just in time for Halloween, a book now claims the image may be authentic.

Back in 1997, Meisner decided to take a snapshot next to the rock legend's grave in the famous Père Lachaise cemetery in Paris, not exactly an uncommon thing to do considering some 1,000 people visit the grave daily. The photo, taken by Meisner's assistant, shows the historian casually standing next to Morrison's plot with one hand in his pocket and a white cloudy shadow to his left, the latter going unnoticed until Meisner finally decided to revisit the photo in 2002. The cloudy, obscure image to Meisner's left is said to be the deceased singer himself.

Word quickly spread thanks to the Internet, and the historian had the photo analyzed by some folks who do that sort of thing -- and they concluded that the snapshot may indeed be as bone chilling as it was first perceived. These researchers rule out both lightning and image manipulation and conclude that the photo is simply "unexplainable." In an even more eerie coincidence, the photo is featured in a new book titled 'Ghosts Caught on Film 2: Photographs of the Unexplained.'

I visited the grave of Jim Morrison and found it rather sad, small, grey, at a corner behind other ones.... I believe he is no more there, no ; why would his soul like to remain there forever ?
(I read however somewhere than he wished to rest there before he died)

I am not sure Jim would come back for a visit. He didn't seem to like it much the first time through!

It could be that Jim has unresolved issues. Maybe he will appear on Halloween when the veil between the worlds lifts. :)
