You live alone, paintings are your thing, your happy, content and carefree. One sunny afternoon you pass a shop and see a very old chest for sale, carved and in oak, it dates back to the1700's, a quick haggle and it's yours. The guy delivers it to you that evening and put in your bedroom at the foot of your bed. That night your reading, an auction of fine paintings that you can not afford but there's no harm in dreaming you think. Getting tired you lay the book face down on the chest, easy for you to pick up where you left off and into bed you go. That night you have a very vivid dream, in a field over looking a windmill, beautiful flowers all around, an artist painting it, you stop and talk to him for a while, he tells you all about himself, your in ore. In the morning after breakfast you pick up your book, oh my god, the page you left is a painting of a wind mill, the same as your dream, how can that be?. All day it's in your mind so when you go to bed that night you open the book and lay it down on the chest not looking at the paintings on the pages and go to bed. Again you dream of another place far away, a desert, camels and tents, talk to the painter and in the morning wake and look at the book. It's true!, the chest must be giving you the dreams and what ever picture you lay on it, it sends you that dream. You are so happy and buy all the books you can to lay on your chest and be sent that dream, to talk to the painters, learn their secrets and you do. Paintings that now come alive, you don't have to buy any as there now your dreams.x i wrote this in 20 mins after it came to me in a few seconds so not good but thats how they all come to me. Thanks JX
