“Ion, any atom or group of atoms that bears one or more positive or negative electrical charges. Positively charged ions are called cations; negatively charged ions, anions. … Many crystalline substances are composed of ions held in regular geometric patterns by the attraction of the oppositely charged particles for each other. Ions migrate under the influence of an electrical field and are the conductors of electric current in electrolytic cells.”—Encyclopaedia Britannica, https://www.britannica.com/science/ion-physics
It was a file-naming typo: mothion instead of motion. But I love the idea of a moth ion or of something being mothian (like a moth, in my definition; it’s also a surname, the name of a gaming character, and a musical scale). And I do love moths. Even the little freaky kinds, but truly the rarely seen beauties. Could anything be more enchanting than a Luna moth? Peace, Cat
Found poetry and outstanding images!
Thank you, Josie! And, yes, there’s a nascent poem in the image names: Passage, swish, gentle slope. Its own particular kind of light. Deep trace of a mothian splish into sweetly disoriented dreams.
I’ve generally put a lot of thought into naming the images at 4Art and always include them in alternate text you can see if you hover over them on a desktop. But I recently realized that most people likely don’t see these labels, so started adding the names to the main text. Might go back and add them to the older posts, too!
Hello, and thank you, Catherine Arcolio!! BTW, I’m thoroughly enjoying your Winter visions https://leafandtwig.wordpress.com/2020/12/23/blue-velvet/
