I had lunch with my friends yesterday. They are the newly wed couple who live very near my house. The wife is one of the members of my self-help group of Adlerian Psychology but we did not know where we lived. It is funny we met using subways and trains so far.
She took me to a Chinese restaurant her friend is running. We ate vegetarian lunch and the taro soup was extremely good. The husband was somewhat tensed because we met for the first time. After lunch, she invited me to her house. I hesitated, but after all I went with them. They live on the fifth floor and their place had an attic (which is my dream!). They showed me many pictures they took in Turkey.
In their house, the husband became very relaxed and talked much. He was a professional fortuneteller ! This was the first time I spoke friendly with a person of this occupation. We discussed the difference between the counselor and the fortuneteller. He said a fortuneteller should tell the client an answer and decide. And I said a counselor could only help the client to decide. Counselor should not decide the client's life. You see, talking with a professional fortuneteller was very exciting.
While we were debating, my friend served us Turkish tea. They had the two storied Turkish kettles and beautiful Turkish glasses.
We all enjoyed the tea and the conver-sation very much, but I wondered if they had any schedule this evening. So I bid them good-bye at four o'clock. They were nice people, and I think I will invite them next time.
