And your body too! Merrily… ?
Literally: mind – artisan – harsh – calm
Alternately: Doing one’s utmost in an act of creation (especially artistic creation) or design; painstaking attention to detail and agonizing effort for the purpose of devising something good, or to come up with a good way to get something done.
Notes: This is a compound of compounds; 意匠 refers to “design,” while 惨憺, despite the base meaning of its second character, refers to a truly awful situation – or to “taking pains” in a course of action.
憺 may be replaced by related character 澹 without any change in pronunciation or meaning.
