We all have secrets. Small ones woven into the fabric of our lives like gum wrappers glinting in a bird’s nest. Or gigantic ones that bore holes into our psyches. Or buried deep, so deep we may scarcely be aware of their existence, dark secrets that whisper in the night.
The amazing website Post Secret, described as an ongoing community art project, provides a forum where all those secrets can finally be told — anonymously — by mailing a postcard to a Germantown, Maryland address.
Over the past decade, the outpouring of confidences large and small has spawned an album, books and public events. Post Secret has logged over 700 million visits and its creator, Frank Warren, has received more than a million postcards.
Do you have a secret to tell?
