Sabrina was just being cute…but I think that she ended up being kind of profound. Kids are good at that. Grown ups TRY to be profound, and just end up sounding pretentious. But kids manage to be profound in little ways.
The lady bug needs freedom? WE can be her freedom!
Freedom from loneliness. Freedom from having to face the uncertainties of Weather. Freedom from having to choose a mate. Freedom from that tiring search for food. Freedom to live out her tiny little life in the most carefully and lovingly constructed Mason jar habitat ever. Who wouldn’t want that?
Well, she didn’t. At the very mention of “freedom,” she flew away. It’s just as well. freedom didn’t work out so well for our caterpillar friend last year.
