Now Out: Essay 1587 on 駐 (parking) and Several Reissued Essays

The 112th essay has posted! Essay 1587 on 駐 (parking; residing in; stationed) is now available for purchase. The essay is the last of four exploring kanji with the "horse" radical, 馬 in honor of the Year of the Horse. Here's a preview:

This character once involved controlling horses. Now 駐 enables people to control cars and bikes (especially in terms of parking) and even to control each other! Using 駐, you can say that a company has posted you to Japan or that the government has stationed troops in a war-torn country. With 駐, you can also speak of envoys, such as the Japanese ambassador to France.

I have also reissued four essays after making improvements:
