In this article, the author performs a re-membering practice that incorporates a relational materialist theory. It traces the disturbances that follow in the wake of three deaths in her family. Written in an autoethnographic voice, the article is a polyphonic composition of the narrative therapy approach of re-membering entangled with the spacetimematter of silence, speaking, sitting, staying, presence, absence, loss of momentum, dreams, trees, books, cardiac pace-makers, writing, breath, ashes, murmuring, suffering. Thus, the dispersed agencies of bodies, human and non-human, reinvigorate a linguistic practice and the author's personal and professional life.
