    take to the breeze

    In the movie (Chalrotte's Web), the liitle spiders were flying adn when the pig asks them where are they going, they said:

    "We are setting forth. We take to the breeze, we go as we please"

    what is the meaning of "take to the breeze"?

    Thanks a lot.

    Re: take to the breeze

    It means that you are carefree, you have no set plan, you'll just wander aimlessly, going wherever the mood strikes.

    Picture a feather in the palm of your hand. Then picture blowing the feather off of your hand and letting the breeze carry it in some random direction.
