...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?

BELIEF IS A LUXURY YOU CAN NOT AFFORD
a projection of what you wish into what will be
a trust that today will be tomorrow/that you will see
beyond your allotted years and months and weeks
and  days and hours and minutes and seconds
surrounded by fairies and pink unicorns
and every childhood creature you hold on to like soft toys
There is no reason to believe unless and until fantasy weaves
a protective web around you ,and your world  is richer in all dimensions
by the painting of visions,the writing down of dreams,
the persistence of play power in creating a world you can live within

even when no body else chooses to believe.
