PostSecret

I recently finished “PostSecret: Confessions on Life, Death and God.” If you haven’t read any of Frank Warren’s books you should check one out.  Pretty interesting to see the confessions that people are willing to send to an absolute stranger…

“I think the very act of sharing a secret, whether it’s whispering it into a friend’s ear or letting it go to a stranger on a postcard can be transformative,” Warren said. “I get e-mails quite frequently from people who talk about the changes that have come about by releasing a secret to a stranger. It’s not the act itself, (but) it puts them on a longer journey where they get to where they need to be.”

Frank Warren is founder of PostSecret, a community art project he started five years ago that has since blown up into an online phenomenon in which nearly 500,000 people from around the world have shared their deepest secrets via postcard. The cards are displayed on Warren’s web site, PostSecret.com.
