You probably won’t believe me, but I had another dream about someone who recently died. He was my old choreographer/director/ballet teacher from when I was in 2nd grade until long into college. He died of cancer, although he always joked with the classes he taught that he wanted to go out doing a high “12 noon” dance kick.
In my dream, he came to me in our old ballet studio and said that he wanted to die on his terms, and we spent one last class together, dancing in front of the mirrors to classical music. The music stopped and he thanked me, and as he was walking away, I asked him if he had any advice. He said, “Live larger than life,” and he went off to the next room, which was suddenly his bedroom to die.
It was a really touching way for me to come to terms with his death.
