More Words

From the same magazine article today ...

Chyron - looks like it should be Greek, mythological, fantastical... something.  In a way, it is.  It's the scrolled information that runs along the bottom of a television screen ad infinitum on any 24/7 cable news channel.  Was used to describe the running commentaries we all carry in our heads, not always to our best interests.

Lambent - softly bright or radiant.  Was used to describe the movements of figure skating, as a metaphor for how we imagine things versus how they actually are.

What can I say?  Words seek me out!
