...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?"

SURPRISE YOURSELF
BREAK THOSE CHAINED HABITS
Those tired rituals.Not just addiction.
More the impulse that led to it.Instead
of reaction-respond!Awaken to this gift of today
with gratitude and curiosity.Embrace the unknown
as it forms weather patterns around your shakras.
Build upon those patterns of Ancestors and Elders
whose Wisdom brought you to this moment.
Change your desk calendar cliches
to invite in new perceptions .Allow yourself room
to embrace all necessary changes.Then adapt to WHAT IS.
Around the LEGOS of our playground are scattered tools of consciousness
They fit together.As we do.Your personal truth awaits you
And it is not hiding in your mirror.Try the sky!
