In July you told me that you were ill. We never directly touched upon it again (apart from when you made morbid jokes). It, obviously, coloured our talks on work like a nebulous and devious undercurrent but I wasn't capable of taking it in, so I embraced it all as a note on mortality, a nod on aftermaths, a comment on the concept of legacy. What else could one do?

Last night I dreamt that I bumped into you outside some dank building in deep Brooklyn. "I thought you were dead!?" I blurted out. "Who told you so?" you said with your infectious smile. "The world". The world told me so!" You smiled even wider. "Screw you world!" I bellowed, and we laughed; you bigger than me.

Well, screw you world.

  • ianawithank you for sharing. i had a disturbing dream a few days before that my friend had died, i tried to shake it off that her accident during christmas was what was on my subconscious mind... but now i think it was a warped combo of that and premonition, a ripple of what the world would feel before a week had passed.

  • davidbowiesmokingOh how I wish your dream were real. I like to think that was him assuring you his enormity in our lives will never die.
  • christianbeijerTack Johan för det fina avslut du gav mannen jag haft som hjälte sedan barnsben. Värdigt, gastkramande, spektakulärt, artistiskt och så fruktansvärt bra bara. Tack! Länge sen. Kul att allt går så fantastiskt bra i övrigt.
