Unpredictability - Good for your health

Our modern life is based on organising an environment free from the unexpected. The house needs to be as stable and reliable as possible. The job as safe as possible. Nothing should break down. Nothing but what we predict, should occur.
This is the life of the zoo animal. Let's explore the life of the Nomad. Let's live the life of the Nomad.

The Stuntman

There are men of such human superiority, that just being in their presence will make the 
hair on the back of your neck stand to attention.  One such man I had the honour of 
meeting a couple of months ago on a campsite.  It was a stunt team - men that live a nomadic life at the edge.  Entertaining people in the most dangerous way.
The teams vans had their website address advertised and so I visited their site at the 

I went up and spoke to the stuntman and he told me about the tricks he performed.  He 
offered to leave free tickets for me and the kids under the windscreen blade of my van 
before he left.  He never left the tickets.  Maybe he knew he wouldn't be around at the 
time I could take my kids to see his daredevil show.  Blasted from the canon,  the net did not raise, and the body bounced and the man was dead

This post is in honour of a very brave nomad.



  1. We saw the news item on the death of the stuntman on our TV down here in New Zealand. It must have sent a shiver down your spine when you heard of his death, after talking to him so recently.
