Catching Up With Your Soul By Kurt OlsonMy wife and I were on vacation in Italy with our German friends. On Sunday it was Katja's birthday and after three days of being on the go, she chose to celebrate her day by staying at the villa and just resting. She made an interesting statement; she said, “I need a day so my soul can catch up with me”.
She then told an interesting story that was set in the early history of America. (Yes, there is a little irony in a German telling an American, an American folklore tale.) It was about a Native American Indian man who was on one of the first train rides. When he got off the train, he laid down on the ground. Some people were curious about why he did that, and asked him what he was doing. The man told them he was waiting for his soul to catch up.
