Secrets…shhhhh…but we all have them…

For those of you who love browsing the bookstores on the weekends (or any old time, for that matter)…this is a great book to pick up and at least look at, if you don’t know about it already…PostSecret. There is a series of them now.  I discovered it doing research for Epiphany and am in love with it…it is a cool coffee table book, a great conversation piece and a fabulous gift for someone who likes quirky, unique things.  Frank Warren, the author, as a community art project handed out postcards to strangers and left them in public places asking people to write down a secret they had never told anyone and mail it in to him, anonymously. The response was overwhelming…and the cards are works of art…truly, it is remarkable.  The thoughts expressed on the cards range from funny to heartbreaking to frightening.  Reading and experiencing these public yet anonymous private thoughts is like touching a raw nerve of humanity, and you can’t help but think about yours and how very different and at the same time similar, all of our various journeys are… (and I bet you at least visit the notion of the card you’d send in!)  Mr. Warren is currently doing book signings for his latest book (that’s what his twitters say at least) and he is still receiving postcards from all over the world.  You can go to his website and see/read more.  Or go pick up one of the books…I have the first one but plan to collect the series…they’re just too cool not to.
