Paul Haeder: Get this, though – I’m going on age 61, and the last time I attempted hawking a novel was 2001, when I ended up moving from El Paso to Spokane. Odd feeling indeed, in 2001, giving up the quest. I still wrote/write, still published/publish, but not books.

Paul Haeder: Unsual, in Portland, Oregon, social services workers coming together to unionize, to coalesce around our clients, our own self care, our own agency and our own abilities to make change in the non-profit world where pay is low and respect almost nonexistent.
Paul Haeder: One week after Harvey’s Houston devastation, the plague of predatory capital comes in like syphilis – threatening to call in the debt police, chiding the homeless now with bad credit reputations.
Paul Haeder: The dreams I talk about are tied to restorative justice – restoring ecosystems, managing urban centers, repairing agricultural lands, stitching back together the fractured lands left for mega species, replanting jungles, feeding the poor
