Nature by Zach Dischner

On the Proximity of Nature

I can say, quite certainly, that I love nature, but I don’t particularly love being out in it.  I love trees and sunsets and mountain ranges; verdant fields of green and banks of wildflowers; bees, birds, rabbits, and foxes; waterfalls, thunderstorms, and caves full of dark mysteries and ancient rock formations.  Nature is tremendously inspiring, […]

A Clarification (to my previous post)

I want to clear things up just a bit, though I don’t know if my efforts will do much good. Nevertheless, it is being said of me that in a recent blog post of mine I am “bashing working moms. ” However, I want to make it known that it certainly wasn’t my intent to […]

My Toothbrush

A Celebration of the Cells

Today as I was brushing my teeth, my gums felt as if they were throwing a party in my mouth.  I don’t know why today, on just a regular Thursday, my gums would feel so happy to be brushed, but they did. And upon this happy sensation I realized that every cell in my body […]

Naughty UnNapping Horse

Last week, on my way home from Montana, I drove past an expansive area of pasture land which was home to hundreds of horses, truly.  And being that the road was absolutely straight, I was afforded the privilege of watching these beautiful four-legged creatures while I tooled along. Being a rather warm, calm day, many […]

A New Year, A New Calendar

Near the end of every year I join the hunt for my new year-ahead calendar, looking for the right one that strikes a chord in my heart.  Last year was vintage Burpee designs.  The year before that gave me beautiful, decadent flower arrangements.  This year, 2012, is all about song birds. One of my year-end […]

Stamp Happy

> Recently my current issue of USA PHILATELIC arrived in the mail and I literally spent about 45 minutes looking through it. USA PHILATELIC considers itself to be “The Official Source for Stamp Enthusiasts” and I guess they’re probably right; after all, it is sponsored by the USPS (the US Postal Service). And where do […]

One Degree Above Absolute Zero

>Today it is so cold that boiling water freezes in mid-air. I don’t know if that’s absolutely true, it’s too cold to go outside and test this little statement, but it seems true nonetheless. The sun is deceiving though. To look out the window, you’d think it’s a lovely, warm-ish day, but no. Not a […]

Blog Envy? Nah . . .

>Sometimes I peruse other blog sites and think how cool the authors and creators must be. Their blogs are awesome, have really great design, interesting photos, and the writing is outstanding. Their blogs make me want to invite them over and be friends. Then I come back to mine and try to compete. But that’s […]

A Weaker Human Race?

>Have you ever thought that for all our advances in medicine, we may actually be “advancing” our way to a weaker humanity? Think about it, if the survival of the fittest theory is actually true–and I happen to believe it to be quite valid–then by saving the diseased and premature and handicapped that would otherwise […]

Jan. 12, 2011

>I can’t believe this is my first post of the year for a couple of reasons: 1. It’s already a week and a half into the year and I’ve failed to post anything until now. 2. This is only because I feel I need to get something out there. 3. I’m still feeling quite uninspired. […]
