Jamaica Blood (Book) - 9/27/2007 9:57:14 AM
Franz, "Jamaica Blood" sounds like a terrific book. Molly Martin's review sounds like its a book I want to read.

sounds good Franz. I love vegetables. G

Jungle Fever - Congo Years 1994-99 (Book) - 4/3/2004 7:16:56 AM
Absorbing Read … Recommended … 4 stars The Review Long time oil man turned writer Kessler draws on his long experience in the oil industry and his knowledge of Africa to produce a compelling slice of life read. A satisfactory exploit, writer Kessler has shrewdly blended fiction, passion, enigma, machination and jeopardy in this narrative of dying, corruption and devotion. Well done, happy to recommend.

Jamaica Blood (Book) - 2/29/2004 12:11:12 PM
Absorbing Read … Well Recommended … 5 stars The Review Life and death, freedom and slavery, injustice and equity are all portrayed with deftness from the pen of talented writer Kessler. Kessler’s unsentimental historic perception is filled with penetrating personifications of at times barbarous, self-indulgent landowners poignantly abutting with the simple struggle for basic human rights. Not for the squeamish, excellent read, happy to recommend. Reviewed by: molly martin read full review this site: article on mj hollingshead site

Sounds like a 'MUST READ' to me! I wish you much success! Hugs, Victoria

The Last Ax Blow (Short Story) - 1/6/2015 6:20:58 AM
The world will come tumbling down around us long before we cut the last tree. Large areas of uncleared land (wilderness) must remain everywhere in the earth if we are to maintain the biodiversity that is our sustenance. I think you meant "vine" instead of "wine." Ron

The Egg Lady - A Sinister View From The Edge of Consciousness (Short Story) - 10/21/2010 12:29:45 AM
Franz, Thanks for sharing. Similar phenomenon as what you described was related to me by my old folks in the Philippines and by friends in Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia. In central Philippines, the affliction is called "barang" and "healers" also use eggs to remove the objects, usually metallic, from the body of the afflicted person. They also identify the evil person who put those objects there. Sincerely, Regino

Beneath the Wings of the Vampire (Short Story) - 9/27/2010 9:17:55 PM
I like this one. I have always liked reading about witches of the Asian kind. I actually met one myself before she became. Sincerely, Regino

The Dog Murder (Short Story) - 8/27/2008 7:58:21 AM
Franz, I have been struggling for years to resolve the problem of why man has to kill animals, brutally or otherwise, in order to feed our appetite. I'm a Christian and worse, the Old Testament seems to tolerate animal sacrifice to please God. Please post if you find some answers. Thank you. Sincerely, Regino

About Jenny (Short Story) - 7/15/2008 9:31:54 AM
Jenny is my kind of hero Franz. Thank you for her story. Sincerely, Regino

The Christmas Pig (Short Story) - 6/15/2008 10:52:36 AM
Thanks for bringing this matter out. In the Philippines, the abbattoir seems to be the final destination of water buffalos after having served as farm beast of burden. I hope there will come a fairer way to treat their kind. Sincerely, Regino

THE UFOS ARE BACK AGAIN (Short Story) - 2/5/2008 11:10:06 AM
low-frequent sounds (low frequency) ? Not sure about the point of the story. Was it a dream or dellusion? The title caught my interest but the story did not.

The Seven Cobras (Short Story) - 1/5/2008 4:57:54 PM
A fascinating look at a topic that's not usually explored, Franz, and you did a marvellous job giving us an overview as well as details. I particularly enjoyed the 'Melusine' parts...a reminder of my own literary background. Snakes always played the role of villain in those wonderful, exciting adventure movies I watched as a child... Thanks and Happy new Year! Gina

On World's Most Dangerous Road (Short Story) - 11/18/2006 2:05:17 PM
A well written story full of suspense till the end. It really inspires confidence when the driver is chewing cocoa leaves. I was on a night bus in Nepal once and the driver stopped on a cliff side to join his friends for a whisky break. Scary. Travelling is amazing though and has made me value life very differently. Thankyou and glad you made it back to tell the tale!

The Dog Murder (Short Story) - 11/1/2006 10:46:58 AM
This is really a disturbing read, Franz; but it doesn't answer the question as to why people have to treat animals so badly. That is a question I am still trying to search the answer to myself. Such a waste, such a stupid waste! Very well written, and chilling in its content; bravo! (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in America, Karen Lynn in Texas. :( >tears <

The Dog Murder (Short Story) - 11/1/2006 7:49:57 AM
Was it really a crime to kill a dog in public, whilst other intelligent animals – horses, pigs, and even sheep – are systematically killed in slaughterhouses, with plain public approval and a legal license to kill? Man's inhumanity to our earthly nonhuman neighbors knows no bounds, and we are allegedly the caretakers of this planet. Is it a crime to beat another creature to death? I believe it is; a callous human crime. Even animals that are bred to be slaughtered should be killed as humanely as possible, but either because it takes too much money, or it's just too much trouble for us, we usually don't bother.

The Dog Murder (Short Story) - 11/1/2006 4:17:51 AM
A good question, Franz. Man's brutality does not only extend to other men, but to all living creatures, and I say Man as a whole, not as individuals. I have not eaten red meat for years, and seldom eat fowl anymore; but look how many years it has taken me to come to this! Would I feel differently if our meat meals were at least treated kindly during their short lives? Possibly, but I am more and more content to be mostly a dairy-vegetarian. An excellent write, a thought-provoker. Well done. Peace. Joyce

Polar Twilight (Short Story) - 6/27/2006 10:31:15 AM
Hi Franz, very good and well written futuristic story, a different and more common now a days side of science fiction. I loved the scenery you so eloquently brought to life, it drove me into the story. The ending was a bit depressing but in some sick way, fit the mold. Take care, p.s. check out my new short story entitled "The Horror Beyond Gable Way" thanks/ Charles D. O'Connor III

Hi it's me, the grouchy ladybug (Article) - 3/13/2014 10:47:14 AM
I would think after 23 countries that you would have an excellent perspective on life and would know where you belong. Bavaria sounds like a very nice place to return to if you can stand the winters. In my family, some have returned "home" and some have made a new home, elsewhere. I cannot return to my home in north-central Wisconsin because of the harsh winters that would leave me trapped indoors. When I returned to teaching from industry, I was a bit "hard" in the beginning, and noticed that those I invited as guest lecturers from industry seemed to think that they could infuse their whole profession on to young college minds in a single session, leaving some of my students bewildered about working in the companies where the speakers worked. May you find happiness wherever you land in the end. Ron

Mildly Salted Olive Oil Popcorn (Article) - 5/10/2013 10:37:23 AM
I am living testimony that your formula works. I developed a taste for butterless popcorn as a youth. While my mother put butter on everything else, she didn't on our popcorn. For thirty years, from 20 to 50, I made myself a popper full of popcorn and ate it every evening––three or four bowls full. I used the small rice popcorn, and only put salt on it. I didn't drink beer, so never developed a beer belly like my brothers, and ate everything I wanted except no dairy products because I had become lactose intolerant. I still ate cheese, lots of it. I maintained a 30.5 inch waist through all those years. My primary care physician one time asked me if I ate enough. I usually ate about a pound of meat every evening with vegetables and potatoes and/or rice. I ate three big meals a day and only ate out during lunch because I had to at work––later I took my lunch. After I heard about cholesterol when I was in my twenties, I started using cottonseed oil for my popcorn. My cholesterol levels never exceeded normal. From 50 to 60, my helper made my popcorn because I could no longer make it myself. I cut back on all my food intake and gradually reduced the amount of popcorn I ate. My helper is such a good cook she kept creeping up my portions until I would have to tell her to stop, and then she would come up with a new food I had to try. My weight gradually crept up, but not seriously. For the last ten years I've had to cut back on eating anything in the evening and popcorn was one of them because I started to experience reflux. I am still lower than normal weight for my height and all my health stats are normal even though I've been paralyzed for 50 years and unable to exercise in an electric wheelchair for the last 20. I would advise everyone to eat popcorn that is made with a cholesterol fighting oil and only salt or butter flavored salt for seasoning. To your good health! Ron

Mildly Salted Olive Oil Popcorn (Article) - 5/10/2013 2:43:05 AM
Clever. Popcorn lovers are plagued by GMO corn, microwave tinfoil and fake oils. Your process sounds great, but as for cheap, virgin olive oil can be expensive (but worth the price) ... thanks.

How Ancient Egypt Influenced The Modern World (Article) - 12/21/2012 1:02:47 PM
Nicely done, crisp, short, informative. Have you given any credence to David M. Rohl's remarkable chronology? It truncates 300 or so years, the 12th thru 17th dynasties, showing that several ran simultaneously rather than consecutively - his book, Pharaohs and Kings (1995), discusses his research. Also, I am struck by the similarity between Aten and Shiva's wheel as pictured whenever the monotheistic thesis is put forth. Yours is a very useful encapsulation, especially for the casual student. Thanks you.

How Ancient Egypt Influenced The Modern World (Article) - 12/13/2012 2:53:42 AM
Well Done Franz. Leave us not forget their great contribution to music..."Walk Like An Egyptian" (I really love that song) Alas, Walk Like a Macedonian? Walk Like a Roman? Walk Like a Hebrew?...I think not... In all seriousness Franz, a very well written informative article and credit where credit is due.

Why so much hatred against Israel? (Article) - 12/30/2008 4:35:40 AM
Well Written. I can never figure out why when Isael is attacked and defends itself, the world suddenly becomes enraged that someone would defend themselves.

Why so much hatred against Israel? (Article) - 12/26/2008 11:42:34 AM
"But even in Asia, countries with a Muslim majority (Indonesia, Philippines) are trailing the pack." Franz, The Philippines has a Christian majority. But you're right, we're trailing the pack and struggling to catch up. BTW, I'm a Filipino. Sincerely, Regino

More on our potential future (Article) - 10/15/2008 7:23:54 AM
Hello Franz! The problem is that most people living in western nations haven't a clue as to what is happening in the over-populated regions that feel like they've already depleted all their natural resources, like arable land and fresh water. But I am not willing to succumb to pessimism. I have faith in human ingenuity. I believe birth rates will start to decline in the next 50 years. I believe this because as national wealth rises, so does education. As education rises, birth rates decline due to one's awareness of the evils of consumption, superstition and ignorance. People are thinking creatures. And we are cooperative. If we weren't we would never have been able to build civilizations. I think those two very human conditions will help us overcome any obstacles to the bright future. Take care and be well, Franz. ~ Sara

When A Fault Zone Re-Awakens (Article) - 7/21/2008 12:23:26 PM
Earthquakes seem to be the manifestation of connected slippages. We have scant knowledge of how secure any given resting place is after a slip, however we can be sure that the geologic dynamics have changed from before so another potential slip has been set up and will occur when a triggering amount of pressure builds up from the tektonic movement. Earthquakes are a chain of events the links of which are of uneven length and strength. If I understand your piece, I agree with your analysis. Leland

Some Essential Points Regarding Climate, and Climate Change (Article) - 12/22/2007 12:31:54 AM
Well written and thought out. For those who believe man is responsible for climate change… how about this… Let’s start by banning all carbonated drinks, starting with champagne. How’s that sound to you Coke and Pepsi shareholders? Then the government and Hollywood can join in by banning limos and all other hydrocarbon driven vehicles for use by politicians and movie stars. Hence forth, from now, and forever, all politicians, celebrities and their families must walk, use mass transit, or ride bicycles. I bet that would cool things down a bit.

Electronic Dating: Find Your Perfect Frankenstein Monster Partner (Article) - 12/21/2007 5:16:25 PM
I wonder what prompted this article, Franz. It's certainly entertaining, funny, but also saddening if one takes a closer look. Perhaps one comes to the conclusion that the subject is too complex...that looking for that special someone is too damn tough if one analyzes...and that -- in this case -- a fool may be luckier than a thinking man. Now, I don't refer to you with that last's a general conclusion...see? you make me think when I'd rather not. :)) love, gina

Intellectual - espresso maker--I found this ironic and humoruous but so true since so many intellectual conversations (many of them meaningless and going nowhere) tend to happen at a place like Starbucks over a paper or plastic cup of brew. How many of the problems on this earth are solved in such a situation?

Humanity Means Waiting (Poetry) - 11/9/2007 2:38:33 AM
I have rarely read acrostic poetry that was original. Most poems are full of clichés and/or are boring. Yours is really interesting. Meaning comes from different types of association. Greetings, Axilea

The way you phrase your questions makes a great statement, Franz. One can't miss the concerns you illustrate so precisely here. And, of course, every point you make is horribly valid. Life is absurd and we make it so. Love, Gina

Seven Questions (Poetry) - 9/27/2007 7:09:42 AM
Excellent points, Franz. My recent postings on the delayed horrors of nuclear waste echo the sentiments you express. Best regards, Leland

Food for thought, perhaps? In any event, a good thought provoker you have penned; well done, Franz! (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in America, Karen Lynn in Texas. :D

Bro. Franz, the mastery of your gift of photography once again shows itself thru your poetry. I think "how cool...Rainbow Steel" A prime example of how those things created by God (the rainbow and humanity) can co-exist together if only we allow to do so. That's what your graphic AND your text say to me, and hopefully others can see this supreme simplicity. blessin's cynth'ya lewis reed

How nice to catch your name in the list again, Franz! And what a skillfully written piece of logic. It shows that you stop to 'think' in this racetrack of modern-day existence.

Hmmmm. . . old brown soda pop bottle sitting in a watery mess of a pool. . . sort of like looking a last year's use-to-be's and wish-we-coulda's. .. but you know. . . we can recycle the old bent up plastic and shape it into a brand new vessel, fill it with the oil of good works, and share it like a message in a bottle around the world. That vessel is you my friend, and the Franz L Kessler portion of Author's Den provides the message. And for that, I say. . . "Thank you." blessin's cynth'ya

Hi Franz, This is like my life, always reaching out in the wrong direction, getting sand kicked in my face, being tumbled on the shore, and left for dead. LOL...well, maybe not that bad, but that was the mood your wonderful poem put my mind into. And I love the photo accompanying this piece. Love, Sara

Forbidden fragrance (Poetry) - 4/9/2006 9:22:23 AM
Maybe the same mind-craft which builds conceptual barbed-wire fences also fashions those intricate bottles whithin which fragrances are held. And maybe one same heart-craft makes both disappear, letting the fragrance free. What a marvelous poem this is, dear Frank! Alexandra*

Forbidden fragrance (Poetry) - 4/8/2006 4:46:02 PM
Memories bring forth bitter-sweet the exquisite the poem because it touches on something deep within each of us - of most of us, anyway. oh those barbed wire fences! Gina

Dictatorship (Poetry) - 2/25/2006 3:51:50 PM
Ach, Franz! And thus rebels are born and revolutions spring up and if all else fails, we count on the next ice age...sigh Your eloquent poem brought out the philosopher (or maybe the fatalist) in me, but it looks bleak just now all around, doesn't it. May your wish come true! Gina

Dictatorship (Poetry) - 2/2/2006 11:40:23 AM
And it will!!!!!!! I do hope you'll get to read a poems I'm posting this evening titled "prodigal child" and "gates of heaven"

Dictatorship (Poetry) - 1/14/2006 6:58:49 PM
It is a good wish that would perhaps help to heal the world, Franz. Thank you. Love and peace to you, Regis

Dictatorship (Poetry) - 1/5/2006 3:48:44 AM

ultimately, there are no real leaders who can substantiate perfect liberty (at least, those in power) ... solid poetry ...

Dictatorship (Poetry) - 12/18/2005 12:26:50 AM
Well, this is one of those poems that, to me, is both philosophical and political. Unfortunately, seems politicians have no souls when it comes to the needs of famine, disease and other blights affecting the poorest among us. The Earth is so rich in things that can't be price-tagged, but golly gee whiz if those law makers who "see no evil" just don't understand one simple fact: Human existence cannot be controlled by some legalistic vote. It's hand to hand and heart to heart. So much for our good ol' boys in Washington DC! blessin's, and I love the photography on your link site. [(Seven carpets an a pregnant goat? Hmmmmm. . . . your other visitors have to go there to find out why I commented on this. Worth is always in the eye of the beholder, but I'd rather take cash (lol). And if that gorgeous smiling woman in the photos is your wife, you done real good in the Congo.] blessin's, and happy holidays to you, cynth'ya lewis reed

Reality is a constant, happiness is fleeting...succinct writing, Franz! True, alas Gina

Reality (Poetry) - 12/8/2005 4:30:39 PM
simplistic, clear path to the vision of reality...

Reality (Poetry) - 12/5/2005 12:23:59 PM
Reading this shows the pure simple nature of sensitivity that is part of your persona Bro. Franz. blessin's--consider writing another about "joy", which carries over when circumstances for happiness expire. cynth'ya lewis reed

Reality (Poetry) - 12/2/2005 11:19:22 PM
Enjoyed your work. I recently reviewed your review of "The Lost Book Of The Pharaoh Mar-Kont-His" When you wrote, "knowing a lot about everything, but missing the point" I really couldn't agree more. Respectfully.

Reality (Poetry) - 11/29/2005 7:07:15 PM
I really like your duo haiku's. You are very good at them. I have come to the conclusion that happiness resides in one's dreams and has absolutely nothing to do with reality. Or rather, is spoiled by reality. Hope you are well Franz. And I love your new bio pic. Love, Sara

Touching, and very graphic. Bravo !

Middle Earth (Poetry) - 10/31/2005 7:40:37 PM
I'm going to be the first to say that I don't like this poem very much. I'm quite shocked to be the only one. Is it the case that everyone here only posts when they like something? It seems out of place that everyone would be on one side of the fence. It was moderately amusing at first, but I feel it degenerates quickly, seeking to be very politically forecful in a rude manner and decreasingly poetic at the same time.

This can be interpreted on a deeper level. It is very symbolic of existence in this dimension. Thank you, Franz. Love and peace to you. Regis

Grief (Poetry) - 6/22/2005 7:37:19 AM
That was so well-written and coming from someone who lost her father, I feel you have captured that pain so clearly and eloquently. And that picture is amazing. I did talk to my father before his death so I can't relate to not being able to say goodbye, but even though I DID get that chance, I feel there was so much still left unsaid. But just like everyone else has stated, that broken heart in your coffee mug is a sure sign, in my opinion, that your father knew you came and he thanked you for it. Take care of yourself and thank you for sharing, April

Cute picture here...too bad for the rooster. Come to think of it: I wonder if we ever ate any roosters. Seems to me the ones that seels in the store are all chicken. I have not seen one that is labeled as rooster; but then again I could be wrong. Sandie Angel a.k.a. Sandie May Angel :o)

Is this the way it is? Are we lonely drifting in the sunset breeze? Like shiny color-coated spheres? Your imagery in adjectives used for this piece is why I love to read the work of others. No way this could come from a "poetry class." I came from your own perceptions of what is, what was, and what can-be. Thank you Bro Franz, cynth'ya lewis reed

Beautiful, Franz. Glad you experienced the power a tree exudes...I fully relate to this one. To be one with nature if only for a moment always has an impact. Gina

Right with you on this also Franz. Your poem mirrors my feelings at times when the burden gets heavy. My neighbors are a pain at times. Got to do a lot of kissing up or else. I go the more understanding caring route. It hurts but not as bad as being mean and stupid like some of the fools. Anyway from me being this way my neighbors started acting better. Life is a little better in the neighborhood now. Of course I get out every chance I get, especially on the weekend. Mother nature soothes my soul. G

Hello Franz, cool piece, right with you on this. I love getting up early and visiting the forest, watching the animals, enjoyoing the natural beauty that God gave us. I'm no asphalt jungle person at all. G
