A Mundane Comedy is Dom Kelleher's new book, which will be published in late 2024. The introduction is available here and further extracts will appear on this site and on social media in the coming months.

The 52:52:52 project, launching on this site and on social media later in 2024, will help you address 52 issues with 52 responses over 52 weeks.

This site addresses what's changing, at the personal, organisational and societal levels. You'll learn about key changes across more than 150 elements of life, from ageing and time, through nature and animals, to kindness and love...and much more besides, which will help you better prepare for related change in your own life.

Halcyon In Kaleidoscope features irregular and fragmentary writings - on ideas and values, places and people - which evolve over time into mini essais, paying humble homage to the peerless founder of the genre. The kaleidoscope is Halcyon's prime metaphor, viewing the world through ever-moving lenses.

Slowness

Quote 2726

Wisely and slow. They stumble that run fast - William Shakespeare

Quote 2725

We must slow down to a human tempo and we'll begin to have time to listen. As soon as we listen to what's going on, things will begin to take shape by themselves. But for this we have to experience time in a new way - Thomas Merton (d.1968) http://www.gratefulness.org/readings/dsr_merton_recol.htm

We have not heard from our ambassador in Spain for two years. If we do not hear from him this year, let us write him a letter - Thomas Jefferson

Quote 2723

There is more to life than simply increasing its speed - Mahatma Gandhi

Quote 2722

The way of progress is neither swift nor easy - Marie Curie

Quote 2721

The trouble with life in the fast lane is that you get to the other end in an awful hurry - John Jensen
