I'm going to tell the next person "no", as doing these for free opens the floodgates, and before you know it, you're spending 4 hours per day answering these. That actually used to happen to me a lot, so now we usually send folks to this link: http://www.orientaloutpost.com/proddeta ... rod=x-eval to pay a $10 fee. It's not about the fee, it's just charging a fee reduces the workload of answering these. I guess I'm in a good mood, so here goes...

Clear, fine (weather)
Cloud
Autumn / Fall
Moon

The individual character meanings can be confusing. Basically, this is about a clear calm good feeling.

FYI: This was 20 minutes of work including consultation with a professional translator (I had to talk to her, as these stylized characters were harder to read).

No worries. I had a free moment then. I just put the extra info about the level of effort so that it would be appreciated.

As soon as I figure out how to clone myself, I'll have my clone answer these full-time. I actually like this act of providing education and information. Unfortunately, there's no way to make a living doing it.

Cheers,
-Gary.
