Okay this Sober mass mailing worm thing is getting absurd. I'm getting two to four per hour now. NOT HAPPY.

In writing news, first draft of ballet dancer/Coy Children/witches story is done, and put away for a week or two. Trying to figure out what to write next, from my ever-lengthening list of story ideas. Something lighter-toned, please.


meaning: regret

遺憾 == ikan == (noun, adjective that takes な) regrettable, unsatisfactory
憾み == urami == regret

Left radical is one of the radical forms of 'heart/feeling', right radical is 'feeling' (感), and may act phonetically to express 'regret'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Regret is doubly strong feeling.'
