Flash Fiction: The Voices of Aunt Abby’s Family by Mark Tulin- LetterPile

A sequence of flash fiction opinionating on Aunt Abby’s strong religious beliefs.
— Read on The Voices of Aunt Abby’s Family.

Author, poet, short story writer from Santa Barbara, California. I write about a variety of topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia, to my years as a family therapist, and finally to my soul-searching present in California. These are narratives that may have a humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.

  1. “We follow God’s rules, treat people fairly, and everything’s okay …”
    I know a lot of people who think treating others fairly is the right way to live. None of them are religious.I have yet to meet the religious person who thinks that fairness has anything to do with god’s rules.

    • Good point, Paul. That’s a shame. Maybe they neglect this in the bible: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.”

  2. I love this. What it is to be human and to be a deity!

  3. Gave me a laugh because it reminded me of an Aunt in my family. She’s the same way, but loves us all and wants what she found. At least there’s someone trying to point in the right direction. We all need that more than ever these days. Thank you for sharing this story, Mark.
