初心 Shoshin in Sousho on Shikishi

This shikishi board was ordered by a customer as a return order. He is having it made for a student that recently passed his shodan (black belt) examination. When I explained that there is a double meaning to the word this was the comment.

What you explained was exactly why I wanted this work for the new shodan.  I wanted something that would mean something now, and after their training progressed meant something new to them later.
