It is no secret I like weird things, aside from the typical cult movie, tarot reading, odd ball historic figure idealization, there is one other thing I am very passionate about: My intuition, the ability to just uh how do I say this without sounding like a fucking freak I just um know things, to put it nicely. I went to a party the other night and I was talking to this girl, I have never met her in my life but I knew for a fact and laughed at everyone trying to guess her birthday month. I took one look at her and I said ” Your birthday is in April, you are a Taurus” I hit it on the nail, and sure you can argue but Ash there is a 1/12 chance of you guessing right, and yes you would be right but I got her day right too. The 22nd. I have never met this person in my life, I just have a weird kinda sense about people, and it is sometimes the most randomized shit comes out of my mouth. I just can't explain it, but damn do sometimes I cling to it.
Intuition is defined as a thing that one knows or considers likely from instinctive feeling rather than conscious reasoning. Again… something you just know. But how does one even begin to pick apart this kinda weird phenomena. I love collecting data, whether it is going out to a trivia night, or doing some in depth research on a new crush, If I am interested enough in something I will find out everything. Call it what you want, obsession, or as I see it sometimes self reservation. I know I am not the only one guilty of this. People hide shit, we are not perfect, everyone is flawed.
Some can even argue that intuition is linked to intelligence. While I feel like there is a partial truth to this, I have had the most random encounters say almost subliminal things to me that correlate with myself and my life. But I also suppose we can create our own reality, and in some red pill way maybe we all really are on the same spiritual journey, and we really all interconnected. OR this program is full of bugs, and viruses.
Using my intuition is fucking taxing, it takes a huge amount of energy, and not only have I felt like weird shifts lately, I just feel like “Something is up”. I take a lot of naps, something I have never had to do before Covid. Even then I sleep 8 hrs no problem, even when drinking coffee at night, I don't have issues sleeping anymore- if anything I feel too awake, take that how you want.
Intuition goes beyond a gut feeling, it is more than a feeling, it is just something you just have the need to do. It is something that just randomly rolls in like a tide. When manifesting, it is best to think something and wait rather than just blurt something out, I have done that a lot recently, and while it comes into full fruition. It is best not to go overboard, although I do enjoy when I think about a person and then they suddenly show up. That has been pretty cool lately.
I am going to expand more on this in another post because if you read enough it is a great little rabbit hole to get into.
Until then express some gratitude and be happy with what you do have. .
Ash Wednesday! Diners
written by Ash Catcher.
When it comes to you, nothing could come second.
When I open you up I think I have died and gone to “Heaven”.
Bottomless mimosas? No, I'll choose black coffee.
It is the only stuff that works these days, everyone now acts like pandemic zombies.
Fluorescent lighting is never flattering- especially after 2 A.M.
But my mug is starting to look effervescent, how many did I just slam?
Caffeine overload in the making, too much hot bean water, makes me shaking.
Never was the best for me, always been shit at decision making.
“No you decide, you pick….” I can barely croak back.
Oh shit what sign? I mean what is your zodiac?
I am not too sure we are compatible, I am sorry I think I need to go.
Not going to set you off, or give you anymore ammo.
Empty those emotionless bullets all in one.
My life feels like a series of universal signs and reruns.
Cause everything that happens to me, happens in diners.
If you want to make up for anything, I could use some new tires.
Over-easy makes me queasy. I just can't eat eggs.
Halloween is coming up soon, and I really don’t want to be Greg.
I could use some carbs, maybe a sandwich or two.
We all lost our minds because of another flu.
Why are condiments ( always left out?)
Why is my phone listening to all these ad bombardments?
How is it that when breakfast comes to mind,
Breakfast meats in PA can't seem to get aligned.
Side dish, side piece, it is all the same.
Fuck off from the city eventually, and live in the woods in an A- Frame.
My time is limited here.
Nothing is forever, some things just disappear.

Hey, it has been a minute! A lot of changes have happened in the past two weeks, I gained a lot of good things, all good things. I also gained an extra year of life so that has been nice as well. So coming off all the birthday hullabaloo I was so thankful I had the opportunity to check a few things off of my bucket list! I went to Cherry Springs for my birthday, it is the darkest spot in all of PA- about a little over 4 hrs outside of Philadelphia where I am currently residing, there is this astronomy field where you can see everything well. I saw stars like real fucking stars for the first time in my life. It was a sobering experience. Sometimes you just need to look up and realize how small you really are. I saw the Milky Way- in its raw entirety despite the clouds which kept rolling in made it all the more spooky. There is so much more out there than you, your drama, and your bullshit.
I stayed at a beautiful AirBnB over a cafe and art gallery, about a 20 minute trip from Cherry Springs National Park, I traveled deep within the Tioga State Forest, I really needed to just get out and stick my feet on something other than concrete. On the way I made it to the Kinzua Sky Bridge- it has been something I wanted to see for years now all of these things that I wanted are finally coming to.
This Sky Bridge was something else; it survived a tornado almost 20 years ago. So if a man made structure can withstand an environmental disaster, any problem I face in my life should be a piece of cake… uh birthday cake. I was happy to get out a bit and take some time off from work. I couldn’t tell you the last time I had 3 days off in a row. I am so thankful for this opportunity and will be consciously traveling more this summer. Slowly getting back to Ash.
I also got to see the “ PA Grand Canyon” I have never seen the real one out West but best be sure I plan to do that too. It looks like a glorified gorge, but it was only 10 minutes out of my way on my way back to Philly. So why not? It was decent, lots of people, and a pretty extensive gift shop. I really want to go back and hike in Tioga and Susquehanna State First Parks more. I just need some trees. I love that feeling of feeling small in nature. It is such a grounding experience.
Anyone who wants to take a hike hit me up! See you next week!
