It's a paint date night.. 😍😜 #pg5travels #artistinus


When it's after midnight and there is a locked gate keeping you from the wall it's time to go to the gas station and buy a screwdriver and take the gate off the hinges so you can hit that wall. Ain't nothing stopping us!#Repost @artist_inus (@get_repost)

Today's Gospel reading happens to talk about TREASURE: "The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field which someone has found; he hides it again, goes off happy, sells everything he owns and buys the field." (Mt 13:44-45)

This reminded me of the above dance I was recently asked to choreograph to the song "Treasure" by Bruno Mars. It was for a performance the youths wanted to put up for a priest's anniversary dinner.

To be honest, it has been a long time since I last choreographed such a dance. And boy was I feeling rusty and almost regretful in agreeing to do it. But after some time, thankfully with some help from dance videos to stir my brain and limbs a bit, I finally started enjoying the creative process of creating movements that were not only easy to follow, but also spoke of the joy and appreciation we have towards the priest we wanted to honour as our "Treasure".

This was when it struck me, how different it was to learn someone else's dance choreography, and actually choreograph a dance myself! In creating a dance piece, there was a certain joy and awe in sharing God's creative spirit within me, as if He were inspiring me and creating with and through me.

This is when I realised that all of us have a hidden treasure within us, the creative spirit within to share in God's creative work to bring love and beauty and joy into the world. Yet it requires us to sell away our fears, doubts, unworthiness, inadequacies, etc, and embrace the artist within us, so that we may together point others to the TREASURE of His love, beauty and goodness! Maybe that will then be something for us to dance about! 🕺🏼💃🏼 #augustforartistschallenge #burningbush #bbcn #popefrancisprayerintentions #prayforartists #artistinus #dance #treasure #creativity #creativespirit
