Pure joy

I’ve been working on a math / programming problem the last few days. It has required me to work out lots of different problems, and implement various image-analysis algorithms.

I’ve needed to figure out how to compute curves from discrete points, do sub-pixel sampling, adapt a marching-squares algorithm, construct optimal histograms and then analyze them, create graphical visualizations of potential sources of deviation from the mean, and employ various other complementary techniques. Since errors are cumulative, every step has needed to be very precise, with very little wiggle room.

You can sometimes learn a lot about yourself, just by how you respond emotionally to such challenges. What I’ve learned is that I am having the time of my life. In fact, it has all been pure joy.

Which is a good thing to know.
