Capoeira 20100911 Batizado


Pairs and Triplets:

Disaster. Success.

Stress. Happiness.

Pain. Strength.

The three pairs above make up the bulk of my experience during Capoeira Luanda Baltimore, Maryland's (CLBMD) first batizado.

Success. Disaster. Success.

Happiness. Stress. Happiness.

Pain. Strength. Pain.

The three triplets above elaborate the experience.

Whatever these pairs and triplets represent, that's open to interpretation. If you came to the batizado, feel free to comment with your own set of pair and triplets.
