Erin Cantelo  Director. Writer. Everything is an adventure. Living as fully as I can with a whole lot of love to give.

New practice! This thought randomly occurred to me tonight after my run and I thought why not try it on? Who’s in? 7 days isn’t a terribly long commitment. 😉 #mindfulness #practice

5 years ago today, I ventured out on what would become the most meaningful and life changing trip of my life thus far. This day holds a lot of meaning for me because it was the start of an entirely new chapter in my life in the wake of a rough year. There is a quote that I found pinned to my dad’s wall when I was going through his things earlier that year that seems apt for today and for that fateful journey that would turn into a 4 month adventure and something that has helped define who I am today. I am so grateful. For the whole spectrum. For everything I experienced, felt, saw, and for every single person that even for a brief spell, became a friend. Thinking about November 5th, 2013 today and all that has happened since and all the glorious things that are yet to come... “Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: That we are here for the sake of other people —above all for those upon whose smile and well-being our own happiness depends, for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day, I realize how much my outer and inner life is built upon the labors of people, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received and am still receiving.” -Albert Einstein #helloworld

My Halloween costume this year was for my mom @tayloratsb, who was the original mastermind of this costume when I was 4. I carried a laminated photo of the original around all night and would hand it to anyone that asked what I was. I somehow managed to make one girl cry but in that wonderful nostalgic kind of way. I’m also wearing the original wings from my costume. 😳 Might have to bring this one back next year. 🎃👻🔮✨ #halloweencostume #halloween #latergram

Thank you for capturing this moment with Doug @steven_r_morales. ❤️ #setlife #setlife🎥

The Motorcycle Diaries. If the essence of my spirit could be a film, it would probably be this one. Thank you, #waltersalles and #joserivera for this masterpiece. And with this, I conclude Day 10 of 10. ✨❤️✨ #themotorcyclediaries #10dayfilmchallenge #10daymoviechallenge

The Dark Crystal. Day 9 of 10 Although not a box office success, truly one of the most incredible kids movies ever made and once again perhaps one of the most powerful messages you can pack into a film geared towards children: that we need both the darkness and the light of our humanity in order to transcend. I’m gonna nominate @bengreene6 to participate in the fun. #thedarkcrystal #10dayfilmchallenge #10daymoviechallenge

George Washington. This film was somehow and almost inexplicably pivotal to my turn from studying art in school to switching gears to film a few years later. There was something about the storytelling and the feelings it left me with that made me understand and experience film in a way I hadn’t before. Thank you, @yourfriendtk for introducing me to this film many moons ago. 💙💚 Day 8 of 10 #10dayfilmchallenge #10daymoviechallenge #davidgordongreen

Being There. Day 7 of 10. There is a moment in this film that moved me so unexpectedly that I burst into tears and cried for longer than I’d like to admit. Another one from the great Hal Ashby. (PS I think the no explanation aspect of this challenge is silly and does not suit me and I have been ignoring it accordingly.) 😜 #10dayfilmchallenge #10daymoviechallenge

Lawn Dogs, although I was equally struck by #boxofmoonlight. #samrockwell was one of the first people I looked up on IMDB in the late 90’s, along with @adriangrenier and @hitrecordjoe because I had crushes on all of them. Late 90’s indie cinema really had some true gems. Day 6 of 10 #10dayfilmchallenge #10daymoviechallenge

The Thin Red Line. Always (but maybe minus Jon Travolta) I’m nominating @meagangillett to get on this bandwagon of listing 10 films that have inspired and impacted you. #10dayfilmchallenge #10daymoviechallenge #terrencemalick

Harold and Maude. One of my absolute all time favorites. Day 4 of 10 I’m gonna nominate the dear @adrianpengcorreia for the challenge. #10dayfilmchallenge #10daymoviechallenge

Amelie. Day 3 of 10. ❤️💚💙 Hey @katie_blake your turn!#10dayfilmchallenge #10daymoviechallenge
