...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?"


ILLUSION ALONENESS
Ennui,anomie.Alienation Island.
Single.Solo.Solitary.None of this is you-nor i
We send out sparks to warm our winter fires
As once they burned @Beltane (&@Solstice)
We know the WHY even more than HOW and WHEN
We do it electronically,digital time and time again.
It does not matter how the Seasons are-
more how we respond to a world on fire,
with calm dreams and deep connection
We do this digital time and time again.
It is a lifeline that we throw to save ourselves
from the illusion that we live alone
This seven billion peopled blue planet is our home
In conversation-we are never only one.
More threads of emails lift our flying carpetry

Occasionally,we lapse (again!)-into human heart felt poetry
