±Ñ¸ì¤Ç ³èLooks like a hockey Goalie with a stick and two hockey pucks. This works well in helping to remember the meaning of ³è, which is lively or active, because hockey is a very active sport in which the players move quickly around the ice.

The left side means water, and the right side looks like the the right side of ÏÃ, a story. Life originally comes from water, so water is the story of life. ³è¡¡means life or activity.
