"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?
WHY IS IT SO?
Because of the cost of living.
Because time is money
Because sensory overload
Because of urban cultures
Because limiting social interaction
Because of fear.Because of withdrawal
Because of white earbuds and headsets.
Because we are accelerating in demands and priorities
Because people need people and avoid people
Because country means slow,amble,saunter.
Because city means rush.Fast.Faster.
Because we may not recognize the differences
Because (in each moment)we choose where we want to live
