Halcyon days are a message of optimism which remind us that the world is a combination of little things which come and go. It’s a message of positive thinking to the world. Clouds and rain may stay away from you even during wintertime. There is nothing permanent and nothing manifest in this life. Nature shows us that there are alternating conditions; bad and good things, sunny and rainy days, they all come & go and reveal a world full of wonders; the greatest of all wanders is “life”.
“According to the Greek Mythology, Alcyone was the daughter of Aeolus -god of Wind- and used to live with her husband Ceyx at the seaside. Alcyone and Ceyx were so in love and happy with each other that they drew a parallel between them and the couple of Zeus & Hera. This comparison proved to be an imprudent idea and it was perceived as an act of disrespect towards the godlike couple. Hence, the father of Gods –Zeus- got furious with them and transformed Ceyx into a vulture.”
