RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, July 2, 2024 / — Belle Isle Books of Richmond, Virginia, is pleased to announce the release of a new poetry collection, ‘Sitting on a Rock‘ by Gary L. Brinderson

In this collection of 99 thoughtful poems, Gary Brinderson brings to bear his years of experience as a business student and owner to spread the knowledge he has gained over his lifetime, addressing such topics as imperfection, nostalgia, celebration, failure, loneliness, loss, kindness, and forgiveness. His poems touch on our relationships with the most important people in our lives—our parents, partners, and friends—and emphasize the value of love in every action we take. With each poem, Brinderson coaxes his readers to contemplate integrity, courage, and other core values as important ingredients for transformation, guiding them toward personal success and encouraging them to see themselves in new ways as they consider their life’s journey.

Affirmative, unique self-help in the form of motivational, inspirational poetry, ‘Sitting on a Rock’ is releasing today, July 2, 2024.

‘Affirmation, kindness, love, and self awareness are the touchstones of Gary Brinderson’s poetry. In a deceptively simple, Zen-like style, “Sitting on a Rock” offers wise counsel, teaching us—just as he taught his students—that all of life’s answers can be found within. We only need to go and sit on a rock, and listen to our hearts.’
