Had a dream about lots of dead sheep on a mound as I was flying past I had a
closer look to see what was wrong and some were still alive but eating bits of flesh
from the others, I started to lead one away and he came with me then ran off which
was good because he was not eating with the others. All before this I was being
chased by the police and got away with someone flying on a giant paper plate. Any
interpretation much apresheated.

I walk the Red Road, but as a former follower of Jesus, I find his comparison of
humans as sheep profound. Childlike conforming to lessons from the shepard. So
much is woven together, aho Metakeuye oyasin
