Episode 4: Back to NYC, Visiting Seth Godin and The Domino Crew

Where are we headed? Where are we going? And what does it mean "to go back"?

These are the questions I was contemplating as I sat in Yonkers, only days after leaving Panama, on my way to Hastings-on-Hudson to visit friend, mentor and past boss, Seth Godin.

At the time, I had just gotten back from Panama and was contemplating living outside of NYC. Thus, I rented an Airbnb in Yonkers for a few days to see what the outskirts of the Big Apple felt like and hence, the concept of "returning" and what that truly means in the context of being present.

Episode #3: Panama City to NYC (Part 1)

Panama City, 2015

I don't know that I fully could appreciate, previous to this 30 days of #dailyreflections vlogging adventure, the amount of love and labor that it takes to pull this all together.

I am already in love with the output.

I love that I'm able to reflect, document and share these amazing experiences with people from all over the world in such an open, transparent and ideally entertaining way.

As of right now, I'm living the dream. I'm in Montreal, Canada with gorgeous weather and the relaxation and joy that comes from creating these mini stories. This video in particular is part one of my adventure leaving Panama City and heading to New York. Tomorrow you'll get to see the 2nd half.
