The Beauty of a Secret
I have been hooked for several months by a certain blog. The stories: always riveting; the authors: never the same; the wheels in my mind: always turning. PostSecret is a weekly collection of postcards which are sent to an address in Germantown, MD from all over the world. How would you describe your deepest, darkest secret if you just had one side of a post card? I suppose it has the appeal of Twitter which requires brevity with the safety of anonymity. Its a fascinating collection of thoughts, emotions and feelings. The founder of PostSecret, Frank Warren, has a schedule of speaking engagements this fall at various colleges throughout the US. Additionally, four books filled with anonymous postcards have been published as an outlet for that voyeuristic tendency in us all.
