Meaning
Halcyon Inspired 31 January 2019

 

To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never. In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony - William Henry Channing

On Being Halcyon In Kal… 6 September 2016

For my late Uncle Denis, who passed away 10 years ago, for his loved ones, and for yours. Now, while we still have the time - i.e. now - we just have to "Be, as a page that aches for a word, which speaks on a theme that is timeless".

Halcyon In Kal… 26 April 2016

 "If the past is replayed too fast, life seems futile, and humanity resembles water flowing from a tap, straight down the drain.  A film of history for today needs to be in slow motion, showing every person who ever lived as a star, though dimly visible in a night sky, a history still unexplored" - Theodore Zeldin, An Intimate History of Humanity

A call to action. Time to explore these unexplored histories together. 

Inspired by a dying man's legacy to the young Halcyon Inspired 8 February 2014

In the last months of his life, a physically weakened Christopher Hitchens travelled to the Texas Freethought Convention and while there, an eight-year-old girl asked Hitchens what books she should consider reading. Intrigued, Hitchens spent 15 minutes chatting with the youngster and sketching out a reading list (below). His last words to her? "Lots of love...remember the love bit..."

Quote 2610

We can so easily slip back from what we have struggled to attain, abruptly, into a new life we never wanted- can find that we are trapped, as in a dream, and die there, without ever waking up - Rainer Maria Rilke http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rilke
