But in spite of the brilliant sunlight and the green fans of the trees waving in the soothing sea-breeze, the world was a confusion, blurred with drifting black and red phantasms, until I was out of earshot of the house in the stone wall."
Author: H.G. Wells

Lightning ripped through the air as rain came down in sheets. The scoreboard said the horses were beating the rocks by two points, but there were two men on base. If Casey hit a homerun, the rocks would beat the horses. If not, too bad for the rocks. This man, Ben, and the two people with him looked horrified as this Casey came to bat. They had red shirts with horses painted on them. They jumped up and down for joy when they saw the final pitch, and Casey sulking back to the dugout. He had struck out. After the game, the four hiked back to a very small car."
Author: Molly Maguire McGill

She watched him through her lashes while her breath came quickly.Slowly he shifted his head to nibble along her jawline."

Author: Peter S. Beagle

I suddenly became strangely inebriated. The external worldbecame changed as in a dream. Objects appeared to gain inrelief;they assumed unusual dimensions; and colors became more glowing.Even self-perception and the sense of time were changed. When theeyes were closed, colored pictures flashed past in a quickly changingkaleidoscope. After a few hours, the not unpleasant inebriation,which had been experienced whilst I was fully conscious, disappeared.what had caused this condition?"
