Now Out: Essay 1580 on 秩 (to be in order) and 5 New-Monics

The 342nd essay has posted! Essay 1580 on 秩 (to be in order) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

The 秩 kanji represents a type of orderliness way beyond the Marie Kondo kind. A life can be in order, though a sentence in the essay demonstrates what can happen: "His well-ordered life collapsed when his alcoholic brother showed up." Societies can be orderly, thanks to internalized social mores, the police, or martial law. Even the whole world has an order. Find out about all of this via 秩.

Using the accompanying game on the Character Home Page, you can practice the vocabulary in the essay after reading it. 

Also, Ulrike created the following new-monics (which are free!):

傍 (1815: beside)
朴 (1819: simple)
盆 (1828: tray)
摩 (1830: to rub)
盲 (1852: blind)
