A moving text box

I apologize if this is the wrong place to post this question.

I am trying to illustrate the movement of points in the complex plane that results from exponentiation. I have created a file in which I trace a point moving along a geometric spiral. As this point coincides with an integer power of a fixed number z=a+bi, the point changes color to red and leaves a mark. I'd like to also have a text box appear next to each of these red points that states which power of z the point represents. To get the integer powers, I used the "condition to show" field in a point that is animated over the curve and then turned on trace on this point. But there is no option to "trace" a text box and I am just not clever enough to think of another solution.

Any help is appreciated.

Maybe you are looking for something like this (by using Text() in a list depending t)

This is a huge improvement on my original file. Sincere thank you so much for taking your time to do that for me.
