Josh Hanagarne is glad that some things don’t have to be a secret anymore.
For all for of your Tourettics out there who despair of finding love, look no further than the above entry from Postsecret.
I imagine there are those who will disagree. There may be some who suggest that Tourette’s does not turn one into a sexual Tyrannosaur. They may say it’s obnoxious, irritating, and tiresome.
Ignore them. There’s at least one person out there who disagrees, and isn’t it always easier to believe the person who tells you you’re great?
And if you haven’t heard of Postsecret, a review I wrote a while back is below.
PS: thanks for sending me this photo, Michael Golrick.
Having a secret can often make a person feel very alone. When reading PostSecret: Extraordinary Confessions From Ordinary Lives, it quickly becomes apparent that secrets are one of the things that unite us–we all have them.
Here’s how the book–which has been compiled from the PostSecret website –– works. Anonymous people mail in postcards that share a secret. Some of the secrets are hilarious. Some are sad. Some are heartbreaking, and some are devastating.
Each postcard is a work of art.
This may be the most addictive book I’ve ever picked up. The website, which this postcard above is from, is no easier to tear myself away from.
I have secrets. You probably do too. Rather than feeling isolated by the untold, perhaps it is one more thing to unite us, though we may never speak the words.
PostSecret is gorgeous, hideous, funny, and undeniable. Sometimes all on the same page.
