When I was a teenager I had a poster of Jim Morrison on my wall. At the time he seemed impossibly adult and much older than I'd be for a long, long
Morrison died about 36 years ago at the age of 27. Nowadays, a 27-year-old seems like a kid to me.
Morrison has been long dead and will always be 27. What once seemed an impossibly ancient age to me now looks like a tragically young age to die.
Nothing about the man himself has changed, of course, but getting older than your old dead heroes ever made it is a bit like watching a penny
seesawing down into the dark of a murky pond. Its a bizzare feeling....Morrison will always be older than me, and yet I'm now much older than he ever
Same is true not just of dead celebs but also of people you knew growing up, friends and relatives...weird feeling, not sure if I can even express
what I want here, but maybe you can get a glimmer of what I'm reaching for.
