Jim Morrison, The Doors May 10, 1968 Chicago concert and my handsewn Easter dress - a first date tale

In my dating life my adage has always been you either have a good time or a good story.  For my first date, I believe I had both and I sewed the dress I wore to see Jim Morrison myself!

  • Jim influenced my art my entire life with his macabre and surreal lyrics and poetry. You can see my portrait of the Lizard King I created in memoriam recently on the 40th anniversary of his death. It's on my artist's blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/07/celebration-of-lizard-king-jim-morrison.html

  • He was a powerful and influential person for sure.

    What a charming story! And you still have the white gloves. :)

  • In reply to Pamela Schmeckpeper:

    Thanks! I didn't dare admit I actually have two pairs of white gloves left from my past!

    What do you do after retiring from 35 years of fulltime teaching Spanish and French? EVERYTHING! All those things I had just a bit of time to do I now have lots more time to do! I'm a part time Adjunct Spanish professor plus I quilt, sew, travel, swim, read, eat chocolate, bike a bit, walk some and then quilt and sew some more. And maybe eat a bit more chocolate.
