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

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

This site addresses what's changing, in our own lives, in our organisations, and in wider society. You'll learn about key changes across more than 150 areas, ranging from ageing and time, through nature and animals, to kindness and love...and very much else inbetween.

Halcyon's aim is to help you reflect on how you can better deal with related change in your own life.

On Friedrich Nietzsche

Nietzsche

 

You need chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star - Friedrich Nietzsche

 

Ah, Nietzsche. Always so fashionable, always so little understood and even so little read, although the young man I vaguely remember being enjoyed Beyond Good and Evilin which he argues that the good person is not the opposite of the evil person; good and evil, rather, are different expressions of the same nature, which bubble to the surface by complex and nuanced currents of potentiality and choice.

Work in progress (as, indeed, is all Halcyon's work)

Why we need core values

Value pluralism (Isaiah Berlin) is linked to fallibility since there is no way to avoid conflict between different values and aspirations - George Soros, The Crisis of Global Capitalism: Open Society Endangered - p157
