“But you can fly…” – a small fable

A butterfly flew nearby. She saw the orchids and said to them, “You are like a magic floating carpet, so beautiful with the most enchanting colours! I envy you! Every day you can enjoy each others company, bask in the light, and be safe and happy. But I must work hard to find food and be afraid of predators.”

At this, the flowers whispered amongst themselves and answered her, “But you can fly…”

    1. Such is the price of freedom…
      Still, some would rather stay on the ground. 😉

    1. Дорогая Нинес, 🌹
      мир всегда наполнен чудесами
      с такими вдохновляющими
      прекрасными друзьями! 🦋

      Огромное спасибо, мой дорогой друг! 🥰

      У нас все в порядке, только я очень скучаю и переживаю за маму… Она вышла на пенсию (по моему настоянию), пыталась приехать к нам в гости, но ее не выпустили из страны (как будто бы из-за эпидемии)… На улицу стало выходить не безопасно, особенно по вечерам, в ранее очень мирной стране продолжаются беспорядки… Но мы запаслись терпением, настраиваемся положительно и верим в то, что скоро все наладится! 🍀

      От всей души и сердца я желаю Вам и Вашим близким здоровья, мира и радости! Всего Вам самого чистого и светлого, дорогая Нинес! 🌈☀️

      С теплыми приветствиями от меня и Рубена 💖🤗
