Welcome to STONES – the Blog! Like its title, expressed through the image of the Parisian pavés, I hope to work my way up to a hard and durable form of truth. I need your help! How can truth be arrived at without the hard – as in “difficult” – conversations!
In Paris, 1968, the pavés were pulled up by the students and other demonstrators to build their barricades against attacks of both police and the French army. After the May Revolution, the government cemented over these paving stones, hoping they’d seen the back of revolution in their nation.
For a great story, and to learn how the year 1968 changed lives, read the other “Stones” – A Time to Cast Away Stones – my novel set during the 1968 Berkeley antiwar protests and the French May Revolution (Sand Hill Review Press). Available June 1 in print and Kindle from amazon.com and from bookstores through Ingram.
