Taking the World by Storm

“There is peace even in the storm” - Vincent van Gogh Have you ever looked at the sky after a thunderstorm? Did you notice how the light blue sky lightens up the dark grey clouds as they're pushed away by the wind? Did you notice how the air feels lighter and how the smell of rain lingers?
