About Gordon S. Bowman III
Poet, Essayist, Christian Existentialist Skeptic, Husband, Lover of Literature and Music
Thank you for reading “Stumbling along the sidewalk: It’s a bumpy world out there”! I appreciate you taking the time to check out my blog, which originally started out as a spiritual and emotional journey set out in poetry. It covers struggles, reflections, and, occassionaly, blessings. I have also added a new item on the menu: Essay. Since, then essays continue to be added. So, I guess you can find all kinds of types of writing here.
I have been writing poetry for about 20 years, having a painting published in “Elephants and other Gods” and poetry and short essay published in “Sonburst”, an informal collection of art and literature I edited and contributed to for Florida State University InterVarsity Christian Fellowship back in 1995, approximately.
I have been happily married for almost 15 years, hoping for many more.
I love art in all its forms. I graduated from Florida State University in 1998 with a B.A. in Humanities, concentrating in English Literature and emphasizing the 20th Century. I studied, but did not, unfortunately, master Latin, German and Spanish. I took courses in art, music, philosophy, creative writing, and of course, English Literature.
I shared an art show at Florida State University Student Union Art Gallery in 1996 with two other artists. My part was called, “Abstract Splattings, Shredded Views”. At this show, I displayed abstract expressionist paintings and what I call “unpoetry”, a form of poetry that I devised myself using what I consider a unique method of writing based on a constant turning from immediate thoughts and words to similar words or opposite words, many having the same letter as the beginning of the word or rhyming with the previous word. It is a kind of poetry that I still continue to occassionally write, and which I’d like to have published some day. Examples of this kind of “anti-poetry” can be viewed under the menu item “Unpoetry” at the top of the screen.
