We've been fans of PostSecret for awhile.  Frank Warren started this community art project in 2004 by distributing post cards and instructing people to share their most intimate secrets in a safe space, completely anonymous, free of judgement or retribution.  The response he has gotten over the past decade has far exceeded anything that any of us would ever believe.  Some of the secrets are mundane by every day standards, but others are beautiful, inspiring, painful, heart-wrenching, and scary.  Some people don't like PostSecret for that latter reasons, but what the play that is now showing in Charlotte (and I had the pleasure of seeing on Sunday) does is reinforce our belief in the greater good.  How these secrets resonate with all of us, even if they have nothing to do with our lives, in small and big ways.  They are beautiful reminders of a common link that all of us have.  And the stories of hope that are a result of these secrets being shared (communities formed as support of those who have lost hope, funds raised for suicide awareness, holidays provided to families going through hard times) are so tremendously uplifting, it's hard to dislike a movement that has brought so much good to those in need.

So what's my secret?



In big (and little ways as seen below by the matchy matchy leopard print my mother and I wore to PostSecret) I have realized that I am becoming my mother.  And though that is something in my teenage years I swore that I would rather die than do, I could not be more proud to emulate her as a mother because she rocks.


PostSecret will be playing at the Booth Playhouse through 04 May.

So what's your secret?
