...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

THOM THE WORLD POET: The Daily Poem


Rob Ayling, yer Gonzo Grande Fromage, writes: 


"Thom the World poet is an old mate of mine from way back in my history. Even pre-dating Voiceprint, when I was running "Otter Songs" and Thom's poetry tapes and guest appearances with Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth and Mother Gong are well known and highly regarded. It just felt right to include a daily poem from Thom on our Gonzo blog and when I approached him to do so, he replied within seconds!!! Thom is a great talent and just wants to spread poetry, light and positive energy across the globe. If we at Gonzo can help him do that - why not?"

BENEVOLENCE
SOLAR POWERED SPRINGTIME? THINK SUNSHINE !
Cave dwellers know how to live with darkness
Sun and moon swap roles/robes.Naked by moonlight
we blind step via sound /sonar footsteps on water/Splash!
To be fully present is to drop that package of fear(excess baggage)
To be as we are pre-birth(surrounded in safety/Sanctuary.
To emerge into this world of walls and wars requires wonder.
We trace new paths to the waterfall/wash in the waters of wandering
To be WHERE YOU ARE RIGHT NOW does not require change
Merely the acknowledgement that presence and stillness are powers,too
And the destination is your journey(this you knew-and know more now
that being present seems a selective privilege for some
and a barrier for others.You are Universalists.We Are All In This Together!
Depth in this moment .The rest is extra..
