Bourbon after Midnight: Poetry

About the Book

A great little poetry book to begin your year with an intellectual conversation between yourself and the author who found a little inspiration in bourbon after midnight. The poetry inside book touches life matters such as philosophy, emotions, and struggle with the great void, capitalism and ability to adapt. The author suggest you will find inspiration and condolence between the pages of this book. May it give a little spiritual nudge to not forget yourself, your direction and those who surround you. Be it a matter of melancholy or a eureka moment, this book will entertain you and your thoughts about the better living, the greater heights without escaping the drudgery of the present, which as the author suggests should always be addressed at the first place. So grab a glass of bourbon on rocks and enjoy a kind and gentle read.  

About the Author

Adam Smith
Adam Smith

My name is Adam, Adam Smith to be exact.

I was born on 11 July 1991 in Almaty Kazakhstan.

Moved with most of my family to Israel in the summer of 2000.

I changed my name when I was 18. Legally. Yes, you can do that.

 

I write poetry, and short stories and recently trying in writing novels.

My language of choice for writing in English. Why? Because I love it.

Love the sound of this language and the richness of expression it provides.

My mother tongue is Russian but I've been learning English since the age of six.

Since then I advanced quite a lot. I also speak Hebrew, as I live in Israel and it is a necessity.

 

I started the prockstem.com blog in 2012 when I was on the road traveling through all of Israel.

It also was a period of time I was homeless. I was homeless for about a year, I ran from home, dropped out of last year high school previously and I believe all that came as a result of a burnout in school.

While homeless I never did drugs or engaged in criminal activity, besides stealing candy from supermarkets one or two times. Never been caught, though.

During this year, I read books, explored Israel, spoke out with tourists from all around the world, and even fell in love with a girl from Germany.

It all could end with a wedding if it wasn't for my ego. Never mind that I learned.

I also did extensive meditation practice, Zazen to be exact. I am a follower of the Kwan Um School of Zen.

I admire the work of the master Seung Sahn. Wish I could meet him, but unfortunately, it's too late, maybe in the afterlife though. That was partly a joke.

I returned home after that year and lived separately from my family for four years in different rehabilitation hostels and a complete year independently alone. I was working most of that time. Different jobs, never staying anywhere for longer than half a year. I kept writing through all of that time, too. As of writing this lines,

I'm back with my family again.

Have self-published two books in 2014 for the first time, with the help of CreateSpace.

 

I like Swordplay as a sport, even though it's not that practiced here in Israel. Planned to start my own gig where I could teach it, but there is a certification necessary and it requires an investment of an amount I never had.

Although I practiced traditional Fencing and Karate here in Israel, it's nothing like swordplay.

It teaches you Russian through classical Russian Poetry with videos and texts. 

I've been taught Python, Pascal, and Html at school. Even though I never had a programming job I benefit from that knowledge from time to time.

I'd picked PHP and other programming languages at http://www.TeamTreeHouse.com

This website is built on WordPress, so it's basically a mesh of PHP and HTML with CSS.

I'm trying Game Design with Unity, in my spare time. When I have it.
