Giving away Secrets

October 9, 2007

I take my son to the library almost every week.  I look for interesting books while he’s looking for the latest Dora the Explorer story.  I found the most interesting book you should check out.  It’s called The Secret Lives of Men and Women and is a fascinating look into the fact that everyone has a secret that they will carry to their grave.  The author began by passing out several thousand self addressed stamped postcards to strangers with the instruction to anonymously write down a personal secret and mail the card.

Years later he is still getting cards and some of the content is silly, shocking, hopeful and sad so many people, so many secrets.  This is a very creative look into stranger’s lives.
