This is a writing story about becoming. It is therefore about change and about identifying myself—deconstructing myself—as learner always: “Getting smart” “getting lost” and “getting real” eventually as doing what we consider to be the ideal; moral perfectibility and learning as both function and fiction. It is a Deleuzian stumbling nomadic and rhizomatic inquiry into creating community through not and supplements and the displacement of terms: Subject/subjectivity/reconstruction/deconstruction/intersubjectivity/ co-construction/co-deconstruction…—being under erasure. Sentence (de) construction might therefore be sometimes a bit stumbling too. Thinking Deleuze and Derrida and a little bit of Dewey together: DDD + assemblage. A deconstructive auto ethnography, autobiography, youto(o)biography: Writing community, school and ultimately research together hopefully picking up speed in the middle.
