I went to Tottori from Saturday and returned this afternoon. Dr.Noda had an Open Counseling Seminar and a Lecture on Parenting near Kurayosh this weekend. I attended both and stayed at my daughter's house. My daughter and her husband attended the lecture on Sunday because they are in the midst of child rearing, and it was their debut to the Adlrian society in Tottori.
While they were listening to Dr.Noda's lecture, I played with 1 year old Koosuke, my grandson. He could walk, sometimes crawled, and liked to speak some words such as mamma (food), nya-nya (cat), mo-mo (cow). He spoke more but unfortunately I could not understand his vocabularies. His parents enjoyed Dr.Noda's lecture very much and became interested in Adlerian psychology. I hope they will learn more and build happier communication than before.
They drove home, and I had lunch with the members of Kurayoshi Encourage Group and got on a train from Kurayoshi. It was a local train and I soon fell asleep. When I awoke, the train was already near Tottori City, and there, I saw a huge rainbow in the sky. There were few buildings, so I could see the whole big arch ! It was astonishingly clear and beautiful, moreover, it was a double-rainbow. The east sky clouded over whereas the west sky was shining. The whole heavens were very dramatic ! It is rare to see such a beautiful rainbow. I was so grateful to something which showed me this spectacle.
