That same river Kelvin a bit further on, in Dawsholm Park.
One of the nice things about
is that it has many large parks, some of them, like this one, more forest than parkland.

On my way home I crossed this rather cute bridge.

The theme for the day was definitely lovely stonework. Give me stonework rather than concrete, every time.

A short distance from the fank was this slightly larger enclosure (might hold 100+ sheep). This enclosure was constructed as per a dry stane dyke (i.e. no cement). Leading from this enclosure is the remains of passageways that would've led up to the fank.

Just visible on the left is part of a much larger enclosure. This one encloses an area of several acres. Several thousand sheep could be held in this enclosure.

I was curious about why the anime "Princess Mononoke" (もののけ姫) got that title. It turns out Miyazaki had wanted to call it アシタカ聶記 (Ashitaka sekki, which means "The Legend of Ashitaka") because Ashitaka, not San, is the protagonist. Also, "San" is in full "san no hime" (三の姫) meaning "The third princess".

Mononoke means "ghost", it is usually written 物の怪 . I found a nice explanation of the thinking behind the title (in Japanese)

That article was just the starting point. Then I tried to account for this strange behaviour by deconstructing and then reconstructing theses junctions in sound statically typed terms. That is the (much longer) second article:

"Reconstructing Raku's Junctions"

I wrote two new articles, both dealing with junctions in raku.
Junctions are these cool quantum superposition data types that result in auto-threaded computations.

But there is something odd about them, and that is the topic of my first article:

"The strange case of the greedy junction"

About a year ago, @Eidon
released "九月の情嘉" (Impressions of September), a Japanese cover for the song "Impressioni di Settembre" by Italian progressive rock band "Premiata Forneria Marconi".

Lyrics from the Japanese edition of 'Storia Di Un Minuto'; MuseScore score by M. Carlo Guerra; Voices by Eidon
I helped out a bit with the lyrics.

Now we are a year later, the higanbana are in bloom again.

..𝑳𝒚𝒔𝒂𝒓𝒅𝒈𝒊𝒈 is a 𝑙𝑦𝑠𝑒𝑟𝑔𝑖𝑐, obsessive, psychedelic, minimalist 𝘖𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘯𝘢𝘵𝘰. It is based on only two voices, one of which, the bass, is stubbornly repeated. A slow trend, like abandoning oneself, canceling oneself. Written in one go, last night. Yes, a nocturnal piece – a dark blue piece. 𝑳𝒚𝒔𝒂𝒓𝒅𝒈𝒊𝒈 𝒀𝒈𝒈𝒅𝒓𝒂𝒔𝒊𝒍

On you may find the song in lossless format and the whole album that I'm writing, eidon.bandcamp.com/album/eidon
