Expressing secrets

How much do we long for a way to release a hidden secret? For someone to listen...?

There is a blog called PostSecret that continues to amaze me. Some of the confessions are funny, some sad, others very painful.

Its set-up is simple yet powerful. What happens is this:

'You are invited to anonymously contribute your secrets to PostSecret. Each secret can be a regret, hope, funny experience, unseen kindness, fantasy, belief, fear, betrayal, erotic desire, feeling, confession, or childhood humiliation. Reveal anything - as long as it is true and you have never shared it with anyone before.

Create your 4-by-6-inch postcards out of any mailable material. If you want to share two or more secrets, use multiple postcards. Put your complete secret and image on one side of the postcard.'

The rest is unspoken. Visit PostSecret and see for yourself.
