Another PostSecret postcard...


My best friend and I were talking today about the PostSecret project that has been going on for a few years. If you haven't seen one of the books or heard of the project, the blog is here:

For those who don't know, PostSecret is an initiative to get people to anonymously spill their secrets by mailing a postcard to an address with your illustrated/written secret on it. Its a fascinating idea because I wonder how many of these are true, how many are exaggerated truths for the sake of public recognition/publication...and how many are totally fictitious? Perhaps it doesn't matter either way, but the idea of anonyminity (sp?) as something which allows the truth, or facts, to become clear is one we haven't discussed much in this course and I just wanted to point it out ever so briefly.

The options for postcards are endless so I'll stop with these two.
