I'm a simple girl with a li'l dream, of seeing her humble works in exquisite print, to share with all who feels for words, written with
an unsupressable urge. So indugle in my fantasies, and plow your way through my memories, greatly appreciated you will be,
if you can leave your comments here for me.

Dark Secrets

Everyone has a secret.

I am sure you do too.

So do I.

But if you think I am gonna reveal my darkest secrets here on my blog, you are very wrong. Haha. :)

I actually want to introduce a very interesting website to you today. Why I love this site is because it is based on an extremely simple yet marvellously creative concept. It is widely successfuly (in my opinion) because it banks on the fact that every one of us has a skeleton (or many skeletons!) in our closet. And that somewhere deep down inside us, we are dying to tell someone!

PostSecret is an ongoing community art project where people mail-in their secrets anonymously on one side of a homemade postcard.

You are invited to anonymously contribute your secrets to PostSecret. Each secret can be a regret, hope, funny experience, unseen kindness, fantasy, belief, fear, betrayal, erotic desire, feeling, confession, or childhood humiliation. Reveal anything - as long as it is true and you have never shared it with anyone before.

I've read some of these secrets that were mailed in, and some are indeed quite mind-blowing! This site has received so many postcard secrets that it has published them into a book. The postcards themselves have become art exhibits and collectors' items!

Here is a sneak preview of some of my "favourite" secrets. Check out the actual site for more archives.

"And now here is my secret, a very simple secret; it is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye."

When I read the last sentence, I almost choke! Thought you were about to reveal your secret! Took me a while to realise that it's a quotation from The Little Prince". I am dissappointed. But nebermind, maybe there are some other ways to get to know your secrets.
