Da-vi-na-tion | ,daevi’naeSHun | Noun

The practice of ruminating at length on various whimsical, neglected or curious aspects of life. Often tedious and unnecessary, davination nevertheless aims to see things afresh, to find new perspectives and find interest and meaning in the minutia of contemporary life.

ORIGIN late modern : From a variant of the verbal phrase  to davinate originally conceived on a road trip to Wales with Shannon Marquadson, Monica Hubrich and Morgan Habedank. It is the nominalization of speaking like me. It was originally accompanied with hands waving above the head in a vague and indeterminate manner.
