Two moons in her eyes
Past returns to haunt Present
Too high is her moon

I once watched a Japanese movie that moved me very much

幸福の黄色いハンカチ

Apart from being a wonderful romantic movie, somehow it also reminded me of On The Road, in a Japanese way

Highly recommended

Also, a must for Steins;Gate aficionados

I got no means to show identification

I got no papers show you what I am

You'll have to take me just the way that you find me

What's gone is gone and I do not give a damn

Empty stomach, empty head
I got empty heart and empty bed

I don't remember

I don't remember

I don't remember, I don't recall

I got no memory of anything at all

I don't remember, I don't recall

I got no memory of anything

Anything at all

@phildobangnz Soshite yosi yosi. Anton Chekhov had a short story on the human need to tell their mind to someone. https://genius.com/Anton-chekhov-misery-full-text-annotated

I generate the Abstract Syntax Tree in Perl and transform it in Haskell, because Haskell is great for this purpose.
If you're interested in either language I'll happily explain more, AMA.
The current status is that I can generate Fortran for the transformed program. To generate OpenCL I need to add some features to my Fortran-to-OpenCL compiler. As I am now back to normal work regime, it might take quite a while before I can actually evaluate the performance.

You've probably all seen pictures of this theatre, but let me add a few of my own. The theatre is really quite large, it can seat more than 12,000 people. This picture gives an idea of its setting.

The stairs separating the seating sections. There are 11 stairs that lead all the way up. The upper tier (21 rows of seats) has 23 stairs, the lower (34 rows of seats) has 13. They are quite steep (26 degrees), the distance is about 60 m.

Now on to more important matters: what makes this theatre so awesome is that it has a resident cat! Of course I couldn't resist it. Here it is, entirely dominating the scenery.

The theatre is situated on a hillside in a pine wood, it's entirely surrounded by trees.

This is my final picture of the theatre, but not yet of the asclepeion of Epidaurus. A modern audience.

Besides the theatre there are a lot of ruins and with a little imagination you can picture the place as it must have been at its zenith, full of impressive buildings, with paved roads and fountains, and full of people, coming from all over Greece and even further away to find healing.

Me being me, what I was reminded of when walking through those ruins, was the opening passage of the Prologue of Iain M. Banks's "The Algebraist", a long sequence where the narrator explains how the fallen columns of an ancient temple are buried in the landscape and how the grooves in one of them channels the water of a small stream. The whole explanation might seem quite pointless in the book, except that this kind of passages is exactly what makes it a great novel.

I do wonder how many people visit ancient Greek ruins and are reminded of a science fiction novel. And with these pictures and thoughts, I finish my tour of the asclepeion of Epidaurus. Hope you liked it.
