Heap: A pile, but not a house. A harbour, but only what is stacked on the shore. A leader (head), but only what he has gathered. The heap of soil or sod that is cut by a shovel (to build) or a hoe (to farm). A hand that has taken on the power of a head. In all, a surfeit, plenty, gathered up from far and concentrated, a hand inviting other hands to pick it up and carry it away. A gathering that invites distribution, and which lives in its potential to be distributed. That is its wealth. A heap is also the wealth demon that lives on top of a roman heap of wealth. In other words, a dragon. This is a power that can go both ways for you. Approach with humility and respect for your tiny size, as you would any mighty lord.
