Hey! thank you so much!! there is still so much to find about Pamela and it’s not always easy really! I’m glad this blog helps you a bit to find more about her! <33 And thank you so much for your sweet words!
I’d just like to take a moment to say a big thank you to all of you who took time to take a look at this blog. We are so amazed to see how many views we have gotten in such a short time and it’s such a nice feeling to see people value what we try to do for Pam and Jim, and how many fans she has.
It really means a lot to us to see people respect her, love her and are willing to learn about her and Jim. She deserves so much more credit and attention than she gets now for her contribution to Jim’s life and if this blog can contribute to pay tribute to her amazing personality and that people can discover her, I think the purpose of this blog will be complete.
I think Rae will agree with me to say that this blog is really a labor of love and that we really care about this couple. I’d like to say thank’s to Rae btw, who brought so many great things in this blog and in our book project. <3
If any of you have questions or requests about Pamela and Jim, we love to receive asks, so feel free to send some!
We agree with all of it, this is beautiful.
A friend of Jim and Pam’s recently said something to Alix along the lines of how, after a time, you tend to meet people who remind you of others or share similar traits, and this person told us that he has never, ever met anyone who has ever reminded him of Pamela. He described her as being very sweet, intelligent.. someone very special, unique.. Pamela may have had her flaws, but she was generally a bright, positive presence. I know that we personally, even if we never met her (as crazy as it sounds) MISS her. I don’t know, I suppose we connect with who she was.. not only with her physical beauty, but with the nature of her spirit and personality. That all sounds hokey, but I’m sure you understand, lol. There are just personalities who come to mean so much to us that they eventually feel like a part of us. they inspire us in our lives and their tribulations move us.
It’s why we have felt so compelled to write this book and bring her justice.. it isn’t about money, it isn’t about attention, it’s about giving this misunderstood young woman’s life the clarity it deserves.. it’s about paying homage to someone who was not only a muse to Jim Morrison, but to countless others.. her friends, her family, musicians, actors, and now to us, her fans.
As you’ve said, they weren’t perfect, either of them, but I think that those imperfections add to the appeal of who they were.. their flaws make us love them more.
A toast to Pam and Jim!
Thank you for the beautiful message. Pamela’s laughing and dancing somewhere right now, I’m sure of it.
To add to Raeanne’s beautiful tribute to Pamela’s personality and legacy in Rock history I wanted to say a few words about her.
Pamela was a real paradox. She was the wife of one of the most original poets and rockstars of her era in a time of deep cultural and political changes.
Unlike many other rockstar girlfriends figures, Pamela always stayed private and tried to protect her relationship with Jim from the public eye.
She wanted from the bottom of her heart to be recognized for her talents and not for the fact she was Jim’s girlfriend. The article that was published in Show magazine, in 1969 about Themis,boutique where she was mentionned as “Pamela Roselily” shows that very well as well about the little article that was published about Themis in Vogue in1969, where she is mentionned as Jim’s friend.
Pamela today remains an iconic figure of her time. She was the girl next door, but at the same time she had a fire in her that always made her different from her generation.
Like Jim, she wasn’t the typical hippie. She always felt she was different and was an artist, with a deep sensibility about the beauty of Nature, just as well as beautiful clothes.
I think too, she was the first who saw Jim’s potential and she always understood him which made her the perfect person to protect Jim’s legacy and writtings.
She was always looking for something exciting, something new. She wanted to taste everything and to learn everything. In Jim she found her match because he had the same fire in him that both made them want to live on the edge and with a ferocious intensity.
She always was a mystery, she is both described as have been a bubbly personality as well as a very quiet kind of woman and a deeply intelligent, and kind girl.
With Jim’s death, Pam somehow lost interest in life. The man to which she devoted her life to and who learned her almost everything she knew about wasn’t there for her anymore.
No matter how strong they fighted, they both shared a deep bond that nothing could break, but death.
She always wanted to protect Jim’s legacy and knew all about Jim’s poetry. Jim himself refered her as being her editor.
I hope she can be remembered as a beautiful soul and a wonderful mystery, and that she can be remembered for her influence in the Door’s huge legacy.
