The 434th essay has posted! Essay 1199 on 渓 (ravine) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

While learning terms for types of valleys and mountain streams, enjoy spectacular pictures of Japanese gorges. Learn which valley features snow year-round and which ravine is filled with apricot trees. Discover a gorge named for a lion’s nose, a “white horse” mountain, and a valley abounding with monkeys. And see how “ravenous” relates to “ravine” in both languages.

I've also posted two Radical Notes:

Find out how 小 (36: small) relates to 少 (143: small quantity), and see how 小 can be the radical in 当 (183: to hit the mark).

The Japanese perceive 尢 and 冘 as significantly different. Do you?! Find out more about the thinking and the kanji in which each shape appears. 

These resources are free!

Finally, Ulrike created the following new-monics:

憩 (1205: to rest and relax)
堅 (1217: firm)
賢 (1221: intelligent)
顧 (1235: to look back)
碁 (1240: Go)
