Really. Really? Really!?!

Really.  Really?   Really!?!

Have you noticed that we use the word "really" a lot -  really a lot?  In my conversations with those at critical live junctures, I find myself asking questions like "what do you really want to do?" or "do you really believe that?" or sometimes just an incredulous  "really?!?".   In the quiet early morning hours, I ask myself the "really" questions of want, desire, truth.   It strikes me that "really" has become a code word for the call for serious conversation and deeper, more honest thinking.
