A pocket companion of self-discovery, There’s a Hole in My Sidewalk has quickly become my go-to book for quick, humorous, inspirational bits that enlighten my day. And now, with the beautiful 35 th anniversary edition, this book has found a permanent spot in my purse.
“These pieces have had a bit of trouble finding a comfortable concept that would knit them into one book…just as I have had difficulty molding a multi-faceted misfit into one person.”
Portia Nelson first released what she referred to as a book of “pieces of me” in 1977. Since then, There’s a Hole in My Sidewalk has gone on to become a well-loved classic. Portia’s humor, inspiration, and insight have touched thousand’s of people. Her poems provide a clear, honest depiction of self-reflection, inner conflict, and personal struggle all with a clear message of hope in the end. Portia was a true renaissance woman who made waves as an actress, singer, author, composer, painter, and more. In this timeless classic, Portia has shared with us a legacy that will last the ages. Let this book help you find a “small pin-point of self-awareness” and strip away the false images. After all, as Portia says:
“Knowing one’s own feelings and being able to trust them is the difference between existing and living.”
