globulous |-yələs| adjective
ORIGIN mid 17th cent.: from French, or from Latin globulus, diminutive of globus ‘spherical object, globe.’
whether pronounced in french or english, i’ve always liked how that word just slides off the tongue. how it fits in with todays water gif is anyone’s guess but that’s the magic of being able to make stuff up for the sake of making stuff up. what’s not made up however is the two distinct wave forms coming from opposite directions crossing the main wind-created ‘current’ diagonally.
as it says on TLC’s About page, “If there is magic on the planet, it is contained in water”
