‘This doesn’t seem secluded.” Bridget’s eyes see a lot full of cars.
“Maybe the beach is bigger than we think.” Bill can’t believe the hour drive ends here.”Let’s go look at the ocean and those stars. Brighter than any where on the coast!”
“Yeah, that’s what a website said. Isolated too. Let’s get it over with.” Brigdet uses her total waste of time voice.
The edge of the parking lot leads to a trail that snakes down a sheer cliff. The Sun plunges into red waves below. Soft lights illuminates the way. The surf calls out and draws like a magnet. A soft breeze sings in a low voice.
About halfway down Bill reaches to touch Bridget’s right arm. “Down there. See the candles. There’s got to be fifty people in that circle.”
“Bill, we are out of here! I don’t want to know and don’t want them seeing us either.” Bridget stops in her tracks.

Glistening grass blankets
Bird song choruses fill the air
Breezes gentle and cool dance
Lazy warm Sun rises
Golden rays stretching out
Bunnies dart place to place
A world spilling forth follows
Puffy clouds slowly meander
Noises begin to carry
Peace valiantly holds firm

Jared Kushner is currently taking a victory lap, crowin’ about his “Stealth Data Machine” that put Donald Trump over the top in the 2016 race. Let’s pry off the lid and peer into the inner-workings of this “Data Machine.”
The Signal in the Noise
Building on the data analysis by @Conspirator0 on Twitter, Tea Pain has stumbled onto a possible “signal in the noise” that opens a window into the data-swappin’ shenanigans going on between Trump Tower, Spectrum Health and Russia’s Alfa Bank during the election.
Spectrum Health, owned by Michigan’s powerful Devos family, attempted to explain the IP activity as “Voice over IP traffic”, whereas Alfa Bank offered an even more exotic explanation that “hackers attempted to make it look like we contacted Trump Tower.”
The data traffic, when analyzed, tells a very different story, a story of automated, orchestrated data sharing among multiple sites for a strategic end.

Geoffrey watches the morning light turn to harsh noon. The shadows fade away fron the stately halls. Tapestries with rich colors retreat to washed out halls. Distance voices race down halls. The tours are starting again.
His pale face and hollow eyes dim. The children bring a challenge to his type. The adults look past him and sometimes walk through him. Time changes things for the living. Today will be tomorrow for Geoffrey again.
“Hey, I think I see a ghost!” a high-pitched voice rises above the crowd.
Geoffrey waves and smiles. The adults never understand the kids reaction of wonder and fright.
