Hearing of Dan's death has put me in a state of tremendous sadness and confusion. Dan's view of life and his philosophies on reality provoked many in-depth conversations that inspired much contemplation and reflection. I was very fortunate to live with Dan for a whole summer and part of a winter as he took care of a friends apartment below mine. At first, I didn't know what to make of the crazy creature that would take naps in the middle of the driveway and brew very strong batches of ginger beer (a recipe found on a BBCs rasta mouse episode). As Dan and I became better and better friends I found another truth seeker whose eccentricity was equal if not above mine. I cannot express the grief I feel over him dropping his body at such an early age. My heart goes out to his family. I can only hope that dan continues to help each of us to ask and discover the meaning of life and what it means to be human. I love you Dan. See you on the flip side.
