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.

The 52:52:52 project, launching on this site and on social media in mid 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 Lenses


The task of the right eye is to peer into the telescope, while the left eye peers into the microscope - Leonora Carrington


We offer you a wide variety of lenses through which to view and interact with our content:

  •  by Element we actively monitor, analyse, and report on over 100 issues, values and ideas.
  • by I-Site: we identify responses to the world's most pressing issues, imagine new responses, are inspired by how others are responding, examine the impact of our choices, find innovative ways to improve how we react and spot trends that might change our responses in the future.
  • by Level: you can choose the most appropriate level of response, be it at the personal, the organisational or wider societal level.
  • by Timeline: we also examine how emerging trends might affect your responses in the future, from the distant past, through till now (2020), and right on through to 2100 and beyond.
  • by Space: most responses to most issues are applicable globally, but we also make it clear when a given response is more appropriate within a particular country or region.
  • by Signifier: an index of further key words (e.g. concepts, individuals) which occur regularly across Halcyon sites. 

Please therefore feel free to select the lenses that best meet your own needs from the drop-down Trend, I-Site, Level, Timeline and Space menus in the right-hand column of every Halcyon page

We also see lenses as being useful in the following cycle:

  • Microscope (start> search, examine, diagnose)
  • Telescope (stars, choices, range, open-mindedness 7.68bn people)
  • Kaleidoscope (turn, test, hypothesise, wonder, filter)
  • Duoscope (Janus, right/left binary, yes/no, stop/go, alive/dead)
  • Omniscope (review everything)
  • Microscope again (decide, choose, monitor, review, change).
