Hi. Chances are good that if you live in North America, you are covered in snow right now. Well, to make you feel less bad about it, whatever snow there is where you are is nothing compared to what slammed into Newfoundland yesterday. Some 75 cm of the white stuff fell, burying cars and blocking...

14:46 A Celebration of Catherine's Life »ruk.ca from peter rukavina

We are holding a celebration of Catherine’s life on Monday, January 20, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. in St. Paul’s Anglican Church in downtown Charlottetown, with time for a cup of tea, a bite to eat, a chat, and perhaps some tunes, afterwards in the Parish Hall next door.

All are welcome to attend; St. Paul’s is a progressive, welcoming parish, and although the celebration, flowing from Catherine’s wishes, will be a secular event inside a sacred space, pastoral support will be available to those who seek it.

The entrance to St. Paul’s is on Church Street, next to the Coles Building; there is step-free access through the main entrance.

If you are capable of getting yourself to the celebration by foot, bicycle, wheelchair, or public transit (all Charlottetown bus routes stop at Confederation Centre of the Arts, one block away), we would appreciate it; parking for those who need it is available on Church Street, on Grafton Street and on Prince Street.

If we can make it work, we’ll also livestream the celebration, for those from away, here on my website (this is subject to the ability of the tenuous wifi in the church being up to the task!).

Catherine died tonight at 9:20 p.m.

I was at her side, joined, a few minutes later, by Oliver, my brother Mike and my mother.

As she lived.

19:39 Gluten-free Blueberry Zucchini Muffins »My Island Bistro Kitchen

I am not a fan of muffins that have a cake-type texture.  I like the muffins, whether wheat-based or gluten-free, to be deli-or café-style, hearty, and generously sized.  That’s exactly how I have created these tasty Gluten-free Blueberry Zucchini Muffins to be! Gluten-free baked goods can be a challenge to have them turn out replicating, … Continue reading Gluten-free Blueberry Zucchini Muffins

19:05 I'm an Expert on Your Breath »ruk.ca from peter rukavina

I was chatting with Catherine’s doctor about changes in her breathing—it seemed like it was slowing, and changing cadence and, to be honest, I was panicking 5 or 6 times a minute when it seemed like the next breath wasn’t going to come.

I’m kind of an expert on Catherine’s breath,” I joked.

It’s okay,” the doctor told me.

These breathes may be different but, it seems, they are not typical of final breathes. So I relaxed. A little.

Later on I did the calculation: 15 breathes a minute over 28 years is about 13 billion breathes since we met.

So I am an expert.

I’ve missed a lot of them—work, travel, grocery shopping, watching The Office.

But I’ve never had a more intimate relationship with someone’s breath. I know its sound and its shape and its feel. I’ve been inside her breath and outside her breath and joined with her breath. Annoyed by her snoring, delighted by her singing.

As I write I am listening to her breathing beside me. If I knew drum notation I could write it down: it’s new music; she is not struggling, but the breath also doesn’t come easily.

This time after treatment ends remained a mystery that nobody would talk about over these five years that Catherine’s been living with cancer

We’ll cross that bridge…”

It’s different for every person…”

How many times have I googled “how do you die from breast cancer,” with hopes that some kind soul had written a helpful play by play. I found lots of Mayo Clinic bulleted lists about dry lips, but not very much written by humans, for humans.

Which is no surprise: who wants to dwell here. There are precious few epic poems written about the Frankfurt Airport transfer lounge. For much the same reason.

Conservation of dignity gets in the way, too. I spoon-fed Catherine fish chowder for supper tonight; even telling you that seems like revealing a confidence. After all, this is, not really, my sorry to tell.

But there is a reason that cancer memoirs end prematurely. Or with a “before she could finish this manuscript….” epilogue written by the partner.

And so the story of this time seldom gets told.

And perhaps we don’t have the language to do it justice: the time for battle-words is done (if it ever had a place at all). There are no villans or heroes. Everyone knows the ending.

It is a slow and unusual story that we’re uniquely untrained to hear: familiar breath becomes unfamiliar breath becomes familiar breath again, for a moment, and then.
