POST SECRET


You know about this - but like me you forgot

There's a project. You make a homemade postcard and send it (anonymously of course) and it gets put on a web page and now in a book. Well actually this is the fourth book. I didn't know that.

Just read the screts and suddenly one will seem to be aimed at you - or could have been written by you

We crave privacy so we can do things that we do not want other people to know about. Which is why the internet became so popular and why so much of it is about sex. Considering what the word "intercourse" can mean, that in itself is sad.

So many people, so much shame and guilt and longing

So much desire for revenge - I just picked up Carl Hiaasen's "Nature Girl" and like so many of his other books the main characters are driven by the need to dole out their idea of justice.

Life isn't fair.

Life is not fair.

At worst is vindictive.

At its best, impartial.

Life cannot be vindictive - but actions do have consequnces, sometimes unconsidered ones. People can be vindictive - but I am not sure that it does them much good either. I would like to think that there is such a thing as karma - but it seems highly improbable
