  • brookebasspdxOn this Thursday morning, we say our official farewell (for now) to Portland after a long couple of weeks of loss and sadness and general chaos. It's days like today -- when we wake each other up at 4am with a buzzy kind of feeling that pricks at our skin cells and heats the breath in our bellies -- that we're reminded of how much goodness there is in this choice to leave behind the comforts of home to embark on new adventures. Over the next several weeks, we'll be RV-ing across the country to our sailboat in Louisiana. We'll be outfitting the boat and working on our sail skills. We'll be learning, for what feels like the millionth time, to live with the duality of life and death and maybe even to find a little peace in it all. Because if all we have is this one life, hot damn, I'm going to take it for all it's got.
