Secret Secret. Shh.

PostSecret is a project designed to get people to open up anonymously. Visitors are asked to create a postcard, write a secret on it and mail it into the project team. From the website:

You are invited to anonymously contribute your secrets to the PostSecret project. Each secret can be a regret, belief, experience, fear, betrayal, desire, feeling, confession, or childhood humiliation. Reveal anything - as long as it is true and you have never shared it with anyone before.
Steps:
Create your own 4-inch by 6-inch postcard.
Tell your secret anonymously.
Stamp and mail the postcard.
Tips:
Be brief – the fewer words used the better.
Be legible – use big, clear and bold lettering.
Be creative – let the postcard be your canvas.
Advice:
Please only put one secret on each postcard. PostSecrets are more likely to be displayed if they are easy to read, short, and artistic. (Can't draw? Try including an old picture, memento, or collage).
Mail your secret to:
PostSecret
13345 Copper Ridge Rd
Germantown MD 20874


There are several examples of submissions on display at the website. Many are funny, some are touching, some sad. All are fascinating.
