Description

"jim and i," is a poetic memoir of a young painter by a painter: a story of friendships. Jim Morrison the poet-singer and Michael met at UCLA. They shared creative notes. Later in the roman-fleuve their friendship provides an interior mirror each for the other. The painter meets an older woman in Spain and they travel together to other exotic places; Morocco, Barcelona, Paris and eventually to Afghanistan weaving a curious erotic dialogue. The relationship the young artist has to his own creative parents presents a mother focused as a writer and his father a well-known character actor. The family leaves Hollywood during the chaos of the McCarthy period to find a new life in Rome, Italy. This shift offers curious influences in a young boy's life discovering a foreign land. The blending of meeting Humphrey Bogart and seeing Michelangelo's and Picasso's works gave Michael Lawrence a unique perception viewing life from the Roman Forum. The world his stage reveals this account as the treasures he found in people and art. It is a book by a young enthusiast struggling to be embraced. A cinematic flow suggests a philosophy flourishing inside the author's bohemia. "You have poetry inside your head and you have learned to explode them with firecracker tubes of paint." Ray Bradbury
