I had a really great dream about Dan last night. I was conscious enough during the dream to realize I was dreaming, and to know that he is dead, but also quickly reminded myself that it was still real as well as that this was a true communion with Dan’s consciousness, as far as I’m concerned.
I was surprised at myself that the image of him was of a younger Dan from a photo I’ve seen a lot recently, but it didn’t bother me any. We didn’t speak to each other, I just had an exciting feeling to be with him and an exchange of positive emotions and love for life. It was really beautiful. To me this is what it means when we say that a part of someone lives on with you afterwards. Almost literally, their consciousness joins yours.
I still literally think of him every day, and in an exclusively positive way each time. Love you Dan.
