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.

  • In Citizens, Jon Alexander argued that the "Consumer Story" has been in place for less than a century. Before this, we lived inside the "Subject Story" - as in “subjects of the king” - which lasted centuries, casting the majority of us as infant-like and dependent, with just a superior few capable of deciding and leading. And now? Now the Consumer Story is failing. The Subject Story is resurgent. But at the same time, a new story - the "Citizen Story" - is taking shape across the world, and in every aspect of society. In the Citizen Story, we see ourselves as the creative, capable, caring creatures we are.
