Description About the author
 
There's a war on-and Lin Jensen isn't gonna take it standing up. In 36 riveting scenes, Pavement shows how the Buddhist perspective can help us all, even in the toughest times.

EVERY DAY, Lin Jensen has gone down to the center of his small town of Chico, California, plopped down a meditation cushion, and sat "peace vigils" in protest of the US invasion of Iraq - his honest effort to change the world.

From his knee-level spot on the pavement, he has encountered a wonderful array of what Lin calls "uprights": a heart-breakingly generous homeless man who offers Lin his only possession; hostile passers-by who shout "F@#k you, Peace Wimp!"; "White Wolf," who punctuates every comment (always SHOUTED!) with a sharp poke to Lin's chest; compassionate soldiers, and more-all amid rain and bright sun, exhaust fumes, and the scent of azaleas.

Jensen, the author who so moved readers with his acclaimed memoir Bad Dog!, here shares what sidewalk-dwelling has taught him about humility, generosity, and what it really means to love our neighbors. It's inspiring, good-humored reading - especially for anyone who might work or wish for change but doesn't want to be just spitting into the wind.

Pavement: Reflections on Mercy, Activism, and Doing Nothing for Peace, Lin Jensen, Wisdom Publications, Paperback, 2007, 130 Pages, $12.95
