 Painting of Journey into the mind of a Warrior by Michael Chapman 



Journey into the mind of a warrior

When I dream, the greatest thing in life is seeing my elders dancing, singing, walking and talking because they are my guidance, showing and telling me about places where to walk and not to walk.  I listen to them because they are guiding me through life.  This is the brain of a spiritual man dreaming it just like a vision they are always on my mind.

Artwork and story:  Michael Chapman, Cherbourg, 2011
