I'm on a highway to...

Great run guys! Though as always, time is always fleeting and we could only savor 50% of the planned Capoeira Orientation run :(

Remember that staircase we passed by that looked like it led to somewhere unknown? I think i recalled someone (Jesmond?) suggesting it was a "Stairway to heaven"...haha

...well now allow me to refer to an idiom i've just learnt:
"L'enfer est plein de bonnes volontés et désirs"
(The road to hell is paved with good intentions)
~St Bernard

which can be interpretated in 2 ways:
a) A sincere action may lead to undesired results, leading one into the crap-hole
b) Intentions are non-actions, which will never happen, and thus wind you up in the hole.

Ok ok guys, you're prob wondering at this point "What's the link? Wassup with the literature and philosophy, dude? Where's the capoeira updates and videos?"

Guilty! :p

You're not gonna find much Capoeira in this post of mine. However, those are a few words of wisdom to apply in our daily lives, no?

ps: the origins to this post came from a rather humorous "good intention" i was suggesting to your club's president - A charity roda for an old folk's home :) What do u think? Falling onto St Bernard's wisdom and even using the quote's double meanings of (a) & (b), either way it looks like its

"I'm on a highway to hell!"

kk Capoeira vid of the day... watch out for the white-cord which is our very own Mestre Luizinho at last year's batizado in Gold Coast Australia :) ..... Benguela is liquid.
