“One of the most joyous things we can do is to find our place, the land where we belong. Having found our place, we snuggle into it, learn about it, adapt to it, and accept it fully. We love and honor it. We rejoice in it. We cherish it. We become native to the land of our living.”

Soul & Soil

n

Just noticed how close the words “soul” and “soil” seem to be.

In Hebrew the root word for man is אדמ “adam”.

The feminine version of that word is אדמה “adama” which means earth.

Unlike english the word for soul נפש “newfesh” does not seem to be directly related.
