Thanks to anyone who decides to follow this account.
I have a habit of responding to all who do so, but this is a second account, and I may mess up when trying to determine who is a new follower and who is "also" following after connecting by way of my mastodon.cloud account.
It is not my intent to litter myself all over the fediverse. I will see how things go. I've made connections with several others on mastodon.art and think I'll feel at home here while NOT restricting my toots to artistic attempts. It looks like the instance won't generally mind.
Words have art in them, too.
Good luck to all of us.
Strength to the fediverse through the efforts of individuals.

This plant is the sole diet of Monarch butterfiles which lay their eggs on the underside of young leaves. The emergent caterpillars eat some, pupate and then fly off.
Monarch butterflies are now rare in my area. Please give these plants a chance to help these "royal" insects.
Word of the Day
A positively charged ion, i.e. one that would be attracted to the cathode in electrolysis.
Mid 19th cent: from cata- ‘alongside’ or from cathode, + ion.
Ions happen in solutions of many chemicals and a positively charged cation moves toward (and typically combines with) a metal cathode like a copper strip which is attached to a source of DC electricity. Do not expect this illustration to clarify much.
And so #Youtube won't allow the #Blender Foundation to share its creative commons licensed videos on the platform if they don't monetize it? Really? https://www.blendernation.com/2018/06/19/blender-foundation-youtube-update/ #b3d
Word of the Day
A sumo wrestling tournament.
Japanese, from ba ‘place, occasion’ + shō ‘place, locality’.
Marco took a break from the World Cup tournament by visiting a basho on his Asian trip.
He was surprised to find the wrestlers were having their own difficulty concentrating.
