This word keeps popping for me. And I’m wondering why. One thing I’m thinking about is that when you are looking for something, looking for the right thing, it appears. I’ve been writing about truth, seeking trueness. And I’ve been turning that gaze to my self. How true am I? What I say, how true, shown freely, is the offering?

echt (ekht) adjective

Authentic; typical.

[From German echt (genuine, typical).]

Visual Thesaurus:

“I’m trying to find the character that is about the real heart of things, it’s one of those living elements — something that has the right echt quality — of what’s being in the true soul of that search.”
