What's Happening? - Purpose Halcyon Impacts 16 January 2018

Alain de Botton wondered out loud what many must feel inwardly, i.e. why, if many or in some cases most of our waking hours are spent at work, do we rarely challenge the basic assumptions that lie behind this time-consuming, life-altering activity?

Halcyon In Kal… 25 December 2017

"Wings are for flying, not frying" ...nice quote, nice sentiment.  Animal-friendly consumerism could be a major future trend.  Until 12 years ago I too gorged myself on turkey every Christmas Day, Boxing Day, 27th...and my mouth watered long after at the remembered taste of turkey soup on the 28th or 29th, a meal which constituted one of the culinary highlights of my year.

Now, though the smell of meat still does not repulse me, some thoughtless things just can't stand up to an onslaught of values, so, all the trimmings, certainly...but no turkey (nor ham, despite the photo) for me once again this year.
