This is the perfect day, just the right temperature, not to hot and not to cold. You then notice a slight chill in the air, something's wrong. Unnoticed the clouds had been gathering together to become one writhing mass to launch an attack and begin racing towards the sun. All sond seems to drain away at that moment, the world seems to be holding its breath. yet even as the battles ferociously against the invaders it was slowly but surely being engulfed by the blackness. As the last tendrils of light slowly fade the world explodes in anger. The wind howls in frustration as the sea smashes down on the beach in fury sending spray in all directions. The world looks bleak and dreary as  a feeling of despair settles in your stomach.Suddenly, a sliver of light escapes its murky prison and continues to spread. For a moment it looks as if the sun is playing hide and seek with the clouds but the sun eventually wins and as soon as it started it was over. The clouds flee in fear as the seagulls scream defiantly, gloating of their victory as the magnificent sun sits proudly in the sky basking the world below in its glorious light.. You slowly feel yourself start to relax. All is well again, peace has been restored.
