Fortune Telling Tales

August 31, 2012

      Her name is Connie Janey and she lives in an clapboard farmhouse about fifteen miles out of town on a gentle swell of fields she calls “Tarot Rise.”  Jeans and a sweatshirt, no makeup except a welcoming smile, Connie tells fortunes by reading tarot cards at her kitchen table which makes her a bit of a life coach with props. I schedule a reading every five years or so for entertainment and possible insights.  Connie chain smokes throughout the reading which clearly means she can see the future and hers isn’t death from lung cancer. 

     Write about someone who has his fortune told. Why does he go? What does he hope to hear? What happened that makes this person need someone to predict his future? Contact or communicate with someone lost? And does he? Describe just one tarot card. Write a scene from that card.
