cloud-crowd

0.02
The crowd, suddenly there where there was nothing before, is a mysterious and universal phenomenon. A few people may have been standing together -- five, ten or twelve, nor more; nothing has been announced, nothing is expected. Suddenly everywhere is black with people and more come streaming from all sides as though streets had only one direction.
