Welcome to A Remarkable Thought: A short story podcast to engage your mind and lift your spirit—a production of changeyourmindchangeeverything.org. In a world that runs on 5G, caffeine, obligations, shoulds, shouldn’ts, woulds, and wouldn’ts we’ve created a space where you can relax, laugh and think for yourself. Each week we will bring you a refreshing escape where your mind can wander in a thoughtful story as you visit wonders yet to be considered. At the end of every show, we will leave you with a quality question to ponder. This week's story is an original story by Jami Amerine called The Fortune Teller's Aunt. Take a beat, take a breath, and listen in!

It was nearly dark and Aunt Cass would be pacing, not so much from the worry about her 17-year-old niece, but for the crusty bread and fresh butter Cass needed to get super on the table.
Granted super was only for Nelda, who was rarely hungry, and Cass herself. Since Granddaddy had passed, the apartment was much quieter, sadder, but still, home. Nelda turned the keys in the locks and hollered through the hallway, “Aunt Cass, I’m home!”
