This week I’m encouraging you to visit PostSecret.
If you haven’t been before – or heard of the concept – please do visit. And find more information here.
Basically it’s an online, community art project where anyone who wants can create a postcard secret and send it to the founder, a guy called Frank Warren, who then picks 20 postcards and publishes them on the blog. It gets updated – with 20 new secrets being published – every Sunday, and there’s usually some sort of theme of the week. (And if that explanation makes no sense to you then I request that you go there and look, at which point all will be made clear.)
I love it. I find it interesting, and sad, and beautiful, and funny, and confusing. All at the same time, and all every week.
It makes me think and ask questions, and it encourages me to be a more creative person, and produce more beautiful things.
So – go visit, and let me know what you think. Were you shocked by anything? Were you moved? Did you believe them all?
In summary: recommending.
