My Bio
Recently 'aegian of the FT', who is Mrs a*, was honoured by 'hard copy' publication of several comments originally published online under articles in the FT.

These appear in Before The Collapse by Cathal Haughian. www.beforethecollapse.com .

This book gathers together the informally expressed thoughts of those who can clearly see the need for change in the corporate driven, agnostic, capitalist, supposedly democratic societies of this world. This need is set to become increasingly urgent in the coming three decades; which is not all that long.

We are passionate artists and art lovers with wide ranging tastes and interests. Our long range project is the creation of 'aegian' as an aesthetic hermaphrodite, trying to express the many facets of their being. It has since emerged that we are a couple with four grown up children each of whom has contributed to this joint enterprise

While his better half prefers to remain mysterious and spends most of her time writing our journal entries, Mr A admits to having a London degree in Botany & Zoology and owning a succession of film and digital cameras. I am the man behind the lens, so there may not be many images of me submitted. We love beauty and I search for it amongst the mundane backgrounds of everyday reality as well as at fabulous gardens like the ones seen in some gallery pictures. We correspond with the Guardian as well as the Financial Times.

There will be no puckish, looped video 'web cam'; no 'fake' ID. If you want to see picture's, then this
Livuetta Zakalwe Remembers Darckense by aegiandyad is Mrs a*. This is a portrait after the manner of the old masters Sexton Blake Old Master Portrait, A Lady In Black by aegiandyad and this End Of Autumn Melancholy by aegiandyad was recently taken, straight from the camera.

Mr a*s portraits are vanishingly rare. Here is one mocked up from an old frame of 'film' Yesteryear's Spy Under The Magnolia, Watercolour by aegiandyad, and a much more recently taken but wildly over processed one Yesterday's Spy, A Rare Portrait Of Mr A* by aegiandyad "Now, my name isn't Harry, but names change so often in this business that I couldn't be sure there hadn't been a time when it might have been." [the REAL 'Harry Palmer'; anonymous, insolent, insubordunate spy from Burnley, as found in The IPCRESS File by Len Deighton; Penguin Books 1962]

A few weeks ago I lost my beloved spouse, whom I adored. We were extremely close. He was a brilliant scientist and faithist who was always surprising in his responses to questions about everything under the sun. No chatbot could possibly respond the way he did. He was never banal or predictable and always made me laugh. Spontaneous comedy is the hardest act to replicate. When previous beloved relatives died I always saw visions or dreams reassuring me that they were well and happy. Memorably, my uncle appeared in a dream walking through parallel realms of fields filled with flowers. Some were familiar. Most were not. Perhaps he was reassuring me that life after death is wonderful in ways we cannot predict. After my mother's death I saw her flying between stars, all of which were strange yet intriguing. As my husband was dying in hospital I dreamt that his soul was rising upwards in a spiralling movement of pixelation, similarly to the illustration above. I am

I was looking through the baby photos of our children and it struck me forcibly that every child looked exactly as they turned out grown up. By that I mean their characters were written on their faces early on. Our oldest child loved playing with numbers and rearranging plant pots in ever increasing circles using a range of small and bigger plant pots which he would re-arrange over several happy hours on the front room floor. Our first daughter was a climber. She started by climbing up the ironing board and sitting on it while waving her little legs joyfully beneath her. We were having house renovations and up she'd go on the highest ladders. We frequently panicked but learnt to trust her as she eventually came down herself unharmed. As she grew older she hazarded risky sports, single handedly sailing boats and often winning races. Other people used to marvel at how much this slight teenage girl would risk. The third child, a boy, was always very caring and loving. He would ask us
