Mr. Mojo Risin
Born: January 15,
Sire: Kingsmark Silver Storm
Mr. Mojo Risin
caught our attention as a wee kitten. What a beautiful
silver boy he is! His coat is as clear as can be with no
tarnish. The texture of his coat feels like a rabbit
pelt. He has a long body, nice thickness to his tail and
low tail carriage. Mojo also has spotted legs, which I
love! Mojo's personality could not be any sweeter!
Mojo is a lap cat, if there ever was one!
lead singer for the The Doors, nicknamed himself Mr.
Mojo Risin', which is an anagram of Jim Morrison. Jim
uses the name in the Doors song,
"Mr. Mojo Risin' ... risin' risin'.
mojo is a magic charm. It can be specifically a
fertility charm, or just a generic word for magic. If
you have a collection of charms, you might also keep
them in a "mojo bag". In fact the word "mojo" is
pidgin for the english word "magic." Early blues
musicians often referred to their "Mojo," like in the
Muddy Waters' song I Got My Mojo Workin' and
The Mojo Blues.
Jim said that if he ever
disappeared into Africa, the way his hero Arthur Rimbaud
had, he would use "Mr Mojo Risin' " as an identification
if he wanted to contact someone.
|In 1947, Morrison witnessed a
accident in the
where a family of
Native Americans was injured and possibly killed.
Morrison believed the incident to be the most formative event in his life
and made repeated references to it in the imagery in his songs, poems, and
scattered on dawn's highway bleeding
Ghosts crowd the young child's fragile eggshell mind."
"That was the first time I tasted
I musta' been about four -- like
a child is like a flower, his head is floating in the breeze, man. The
reaction I get now thinking about it, looking back -- is that the souls of
the ghosts of those dead Indians... maybe one or two of 'em... were just
freaking out, and just leaped into my
And they're still in there."
|As Jim entered
adolescence, he immersed himself in the works of
Blake. as well as the currently popular movement surrounding the ideas
of breaking through,
tuning in and
expanding consciousness. He found himself seeing the world though a
different view than most.
The Doors took their name
from the title of
The Doors of Perception, which was a quote from
The Marriage of Heaven and Hell. Blake wrote that "If the doors
of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is,
"Real poetry doesn't say anything, it
just ticks off the possibilities... It opens all doors and you can walk
through any one that suits you. If my poetry aims to achieve anything, it's
to deliver people from the limited ways in which they see and feel."
Notice his spotted legs!!!
myself as a huge fiery comet, a shooting star. Everyone stops, points up and
gasps, "Oh look at that!" Then - whoosh, and I'm gone... and they'll never
see anything like it ever again... and they won't be able to forget me -
