Wealth Bondage is building the world's tallest edifice in New York City. Far higher than the Empire State Building, taller than the spire of any church, it will dominate the horizon. It is called The Wisdom Building and will house... Continue reading

Audrey is flipping to D in the index of her Family History, provided, with gilt pages, by Master Jack, as a Value Add from the Private Bank of Wealth Bondage. “Where is Dad?” Awkward silences. She throws the book at... Continue reading

I am not as active in Wealth Bondage as I used to be. My jokes are not as funny, my "high touch personal services" less in demand as I have aged out of the demographic. The women's' names change, at... Continue reading

Philosophy is.... love of Sophy, Wisdom, ancient but forever young. To master any liberal art is to master and be mastered by (enraptured, inspired) an immortal woman, one of Mnemosyne’s daughters, a muse, or by one of the graces. How... Continue reading

Tutor read it to Audrey. For fun he had hidden a pea under her mattress. The next morning he asked her at breakfast how she had slept. She smirked her royal smirk, and handed him his pea. “I slept perfect,”... Continue reading

Audrey, the pint-sized tennis demon, just half-again as tall her racket, has bested her Tutor in straight sets. She walks off court with majestic serenity. He is bouncing his racket on the clay, and cursing. He did win one solitary... Continue reading

Dame Wisdom and Master Folly are collaborating on a book for very rich people, “Managing Your Money Wisely to Preseve Your Dynasty Forever.” Folly does the work; Wisdom takes the credit. In fact, in the new edition his name has... Continue reading

Hurricanes. Dogs floating through the streets in crates. Nuclear missiles. Cannibal Islands. A Castle called home with armed guards with automatic rifles. It is a world much in need of saving, but at 9.5 years of age, what is Audrey... Continue reading

Tutor, as Mentor to Audrey, our once and future queen, was hired by her mother, Tess, who owns a controlling interest in the world, as a last resort, when all the other options in Wealth Bondage had been exhausted, including... Continue reading

Momma for her birthday got a sachet of bubble bath beads as a joke gift from a friend. She gave them to Audrey, saying, “Maybe this will make you a little less hyper.” Didn’t work out that way. An hour... Continue reading

A bit low rent for the WB Clientele. But in a recent upscale retreat, I was pleased to see a former priest turned wealth consultant to very rich families, use a Buddhist temple bell to bring us to our authentic self. All it was missing was the donkey's whinny, and kick, to express my true self. Dryden, too, though, had much to reproach himself for, as Poet Laureate. And maybe even Virgil, who I have heard cited at these conferences. (Mentors come from Athena, so too we as godlike advisors enter the precincts of power to preserve Dynasties from their own vice and folly, for 100 years or more. If only DJT, Jr had been properly mentored he might have been more discrete in meeting with the Russian emissaries. Those oligarchs, too, have some rough edges that one trained in Virgil might smooth away, for the right fee.

Tutor is a bit of an outlier among Wise and Virtuous Mentors to Dynastic Wealth. For one thing he is ordained, and few of the others are, though many have Divinity Degrees, and one or two have been defrocked. He... Continue reading

Injustice? Is it unjust that five men own half the world's wealth? No, says Audrey since Momma owns the other half, and the five men will be broken trade by trade, until Audrey inherits all. "That is Justice!," shouts Audrey,... Continue reading
