    Enjoy the break Herr Klaus…cheers brother.

  • Thank you Herr Klaus, for all you’ve done with this site. And for giving me the amount of space you have. Outsanding! You’ve given all of us a shot in the arm …. so to speak. Good luck with your writing.

    Have a good rest. Cheers, my friend.

  • Klaus – take it easy man, recharge those batteries and come back stronger than ever. there are so few supporters of the word…we need you to stay in the game as long as you can. good luck and long life to you, my friend.

  • Take a break Klaus, you’ve earned it. Thanks for the great site. Enjoy your time off.

  • Thanks Herr Klaus – I have enjoyed your site over the years -Be Well and have a Marvelous Time!!!

  • I share your frustration and disappointment. After 17 years it gets harder and harder for us at FlashPoint to put our energies into a new issue much less find material of a caliber that warrants the effort. And even at that the corporate culture holds sway over the general population and has marginalized everything but the most neotenous money making drivel. Neotenous e.g.”the retention of juvenile characteristics in the adults of a species.”

  • Take care of yourself and rest. Thank you for this fine journal. Thank you for everything.

  • Thanks my friend… you ARE human and not a machine! Smell those goddamn roses, drink good wine, and listen to jazz ’till the morning light blinds you.

  • Take a rest Klaus, the poets and the words will always be here waiting.

  • What they said, Brother Klaus. Enjoy your sabbatical

  • You have meant the world to us, the outsider poets. Rest easy and well, Klaus. Your site is truly the best of the independents.

  • Go easy Herr Klaus. Thank you for everything you have done. You did a great thing with the site. Be well friend~

  • Enjoy your time to rest.
    We appreciate all the work you
    do for us but mainly we appreciate you.
    The best to you and your family.
