Abstract

Pursuing the notion of verbal rumination as a theoretical method, this autoethnography plays in the space between fact and fiction, past and possibility. A disorganized narrative, by any definition of the term, this repetitive, ruminative, and relational storying plays in the shadows of subjectivities, in fragments of memory and possibility, storying a life lived, half-lived, unlived. Restorying a life that might be, could be, would be.
