...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?"

SAMHAIN
SHADOWS &DARK
Spin &Spark.Evoking memories of poetic ancestors-
those who have moved to the Other Side of the mirror..
They of Royal or Sapphire Blue,scent of Sandalwood
They of Water Lily ,Columbine Corn Flower and Japanese Iris.
They of Willow and Laurel-Holders of the Mirror/Divine /Oracles..
Invoking their presence among us-they of Memory,Devotion and Silence..
They translate the Divine into our daily domestic duties.They presence Beauty.
They each hold Serenity,Stillness,Balance and Flow
They are the Keepers of the Keys-holding the Divine Feminine within
and sharing the memories of their lives entwined with ours,
as the curtains between worlds grow thin/We are with them
And they with us-in respect,affection,memory and love.
Long Live the Light!Even among the Shadows and the Dark!
“Archetypes are large, mythic containers of consciousness that are the structural, energetic form behind the form manifested in physical reality. Archetypes assist us in looking at our lives from a much larger, more mythic and spiritually expansive perspective than our ordinary ego.” ~Ariel Spilsbury
