These pages highlight our founder Dominic's subjective views on the ever-changing range and scope of subjects that Halcyon focuses on.
This is less a blog than a set of irregularly updated and often fragmentary views - on ideas and values, places and people - evolving over time into mini essais which pay humble homage to the peerless founder of the genre. Our writing is provisional, always open to change as new thoughts and ideas emerge.
The kaleidoscope is Halcyon's prime metaphor, encouraging us to embrace change and to view issues through an ever-moving series of lenses.

- Civic society organisations like Citizens UK are about people taking action to make their communities better, fairer and safer, believing that the best kind of action takes place with other people in the real world.
