ABOUT AN EAGLE

The who-abouts of Walter Eagle

Walter Eagle
Walter's best side

Walter Eagle is, obviously, an alter ego. Not the type of Jekyll and Hyde troublesome, dissociative sociopath stereotypical of those who lead a double life, but more, as my old mate Cicero described it while coining the phrase back in 1st century Rome, "a second self, a trusted friend".

Walter's view on life actually coincides closely with mine. He has no choice. I dictate what he believes, denies or prefers and I use him as a spokesbird.

Occasionally Walter will introduce something slightly off-centre to my way of thinking. I listen, consider and then decide whether to record his/our view. So long as we talk to ourselves about it, I see no problem in maintaining an amicable agreement with him.
