long cuts:

they’re the opposite of short cuts.

i know that doesn’t make a lot of sense. going the longer way from point A to B isn’t cutting anything, this greatly increases travel expenses and the term doesn’t really exist anyhow but it somehow sounds appropriate.

i’ve always had this fantasy of pushing this long-cutting to the extreme by going all the way around the globe to reach point B.
i guess i’ll have to start saving up to get a decent camper vehicle and a lot of memory cards for the cameras. but then, if i do, i guess i won’t really be aiming to come back to point B…

the more i study science the more i believe in magic

i can imagine three possible explanations to this rare beauty and only one makes sense.

– there was nothing above such as a tree or whatever where water could have fallen and frozen stalagmite-like.
– water could have been pushed up from the ground. that’s indeed plausible but by the inner bubble formations it would seem that they expanded outwards from the ice formation’s core and not from the ground.
– fairies made this just for me to force me to question everything i’ve learned and accepted as fact so far. i’ll take this one.

Loren Eiseley’s fantastic “If there is magic on the planet, it is contained in Water” quote instantly comes to mind and today’s little discovery couldn’t be a finer example of what she meant. i wonder if she too believes in fairies.

Globules ?

globule |ˈgläbyo͞ol|
noun
a small round particle of a substance; a drop: globules of fat: her globulous eyes.
• Astronomy a small dark cloud of gas and dust seen against a brighter background such as a luminous nebula.
DERIVATIVES
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”
