From Gecko: a journal of deconstruction and narrative ideas in practice. [2000: Issue 2]
This introductory article offers a primer of sorts into the world of re-membering. The family in this story shows the reader a wonderful example of how stories that might appear tragic and limited with bleakness are only one story that can be told. The hope and resilience that opened in just a few short hours in the face of impending death speaks to the stories of life that can be present when death is near. This article acknowledges that people’s lives can be positively impacted even when we only have brief therapeutic conversations.
Dancing with Death is also available in Spanish and German.
