today was our first day of travelling to portland. this whole week has been a surreal rush of people, tasks, anxieties, and emotions. we’ve left behind so much, and where we’re going is largely unfamiliar. coming to grips with that will be a long process, i think.

here’s a few shots hastily edited to show you some of our first leg.
