Posted Secrets

Anonymous notes sent by snail mail, are posted on the postsecretblog.
The equivalent of mail art. A place to go back to, over and over again.

Where do you write your secret, where do you cut, glue and paste?
So much creativity has got lost thanks to email.
Boxes filled with letters and post cards, stamped envelopes.
Handwriting, slanted to the right, straight up, falling backward.
Ball point pens, fountain pens, pencils, cut out letters.
Stickers and drawings, love letters on bank notes.
Songlines on cardboard coasters, haikus on napkins.
Business cards with private phone numbers.
Folded notes between credit cards in a wallet.
Snapshots with DNA, wet ones stuck forever.
