...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?"

HONORING THE "OTHER"
(There is no OTHER)Holding the shade and shadow
in Light as beloved as much as those who agree.
My friend heals broken love by asking partners
to only say nice things about each other eye to eye.
To hold each other .In touch/a truth.
Softness,compassion,kindness.Scales and modes
of gentleness wherein and whereby we dance within this webwork world
connected at all times-to those who love us and those who may not.
We are a part of all /all is a part of us-not apart!Art is healing.
Art sings  to the wounded like Walt Whitman.
Art wakes moon nights midnight to dawn vigil.
Art stretches out a hand-to hold,to hug,to cuddle and affirm

Everywhere is a safe space when we make it sanctuary
