Every Sunday I check the secrets at www.postsecret.blogspot.com. It's an amazing collection of postcards, all anonymous, and all revealing a secret. I first learned about the webiste from an NPR story (yeah, I'm a mega-geek). I was immediately struck by the poignancy of the idea. Folks send in an illustrated postcard with a secret written on it.
I often think about a secret I might send. And then I think about who might (or worse, might not) read that secret. But that's as far as I ever get. I envy those who tell their secret and I hope that it gives them freedom and peace. I'd like that for myself.
As for me, maybe my secret isn't that much of a secret. Sometimes I think that it's only a wish that will remain unfulfilled. Maybe it's just a fear? Often I think that putting words to my secret won't make it go away but instead will make it all the more real. And therefore all the more hard to bear.
I don't know the answer to these questions but you should check out the website. It's a powerful place.
