  1. On a chilly December evening in 2001 we found ourselves traipsing through the Paris cemetery where Jim Morrison is buried. Cemeteries are a thing for us, we knew his remains were there but so are countless remarkable lives, famous and otherwise. Near dark, the place was deserted. We spotted a hunched over figure in the distance, turned in that direction out of curiosity. Soon we saw a lone security guard standing 20 feet away from the hunched over person. Seconds later we were close enough to realize this was Morrison’s grave. The hunched over person looked up, we greeted her. An American woman in her 20s who blurted out “I can die now, all I ever wanted was to sit next to him”. It was surreal. The security guard didn’t blink.

  2. That is a VERY creepy story about the lady over Morrison’s grave.
    I feel like saying “get a life” but I guess that’s just a knee-jerk reaction, lol.
    Cemeteries ARE fascinating, especially very old graves…….

    • my brother will mention to me every now and then- about 30 years ago at Graceland- we were there early-not many people around and there was a crazy looking woman at Elvis’s grave in deep meditation – she was muttering something to herself. Elvis had been dead 15 years or so at the time. She was taking it hard. Graceland- pretty tacky.
