Ghirde n.

Just finished setting up my blog site and this is the first post.  I’ve selected my blog header image – a cropped corner of a shot of Titan from Cassini (added it in below in full).

This picture gives me ghirde. It was the picture that first made me think up the word. I knew that I needed to invent a word for that feeling. So many of the moons on the solar system are finely detailed, pitted, scored and … well, a little dead really. Titan, with its complete cloud-cover, seems to be hiding something. It makes me want to peek below that cloud layer and see the methane lakes …

Cool Titan
