Discovered today

I came across an interesting blog today.

Image hosted by Photobucket.comThe topic is secrets -- how they can eat away at us, if we let them. This blog is a way of purging secrets, well, secretly.

People send in postcards with their secrets on them and "Frank" posts several of them each week on PostSecret.

It is fascinating, sad and sometimes funny. Most of all, we'll recognize a shared, common human misery.

The artwork is original to those who send in their postcards. And if you have a secret you have to get rid of, there's a mailing address for you to send a secret postcard to.

Every human emotion is ... um ... emoted on those cards. Lots are way sad and disturbing.

When I first started reading the cards I thought, "Well a little of this will go a long way." yet I found that I kept on reading - and then found myself thinking about writing. But what if someone recognized me? What then??
