really liked it
Read in January, 2007

Around three years ago, Frank Warren started a community art project called PostSecrets. In this project, people from across the country and all over the world mail in their secret anonymously on one side of a homemade postcards. Since then, thousands of people have shared their secrets and thoughts and decorated them on a visually engaging piece of art, and Frank posted 10 to 20 chosen ones on his blog. There’s no identity on the postcards at all, except the arts that you put on them.

And the secrets they share are sometimes so dark and unspeakable, literally something that you could never share with your loved ones. On one postcard with a sketch of the New York Twin Towers, somebody wrote: “Everyone who knew me before 9/11 believes I’m dead.” On another postcard, also with a picture of a burning WTC, somebody else wrote: “He should have been at work that day. I wish he had.”

Overall, I think this book is a monumental documentation of life as we know (and don't know) it.
