Sleepwalking my way through life: Wish you were here



Wish you were here

After almost a week of searching and scrounging - musing through aisles and flipping from one book to another - I finally find myself in possession of the first Postsecret book.

It was just there. Peacefully sitting between two Andy Warhol books, hidden away like all the secrets it contains. I picked it up carefully and felt the solidity of the book and the smoothness of the cover. It opened easily, and I took a deep breath to capture the scent that wafted from the pages. My eyes ran over the opened page in front of me, and I stifled a gasp. There was something more real in these secrets than on the website. They weren't an image on a website, there was weight and texture behind them; they were real.

And for the first time in a while, I find myself speechless.

Ohhhh. I want the Post Secret book too. A more tangible version of the secrets on the internet.

I saw the PostSecret book in town today and contemplated buying it... then I remembered I had a grand total of ?5 in my pocket.

It is a damned good idea though.

I know, ?18.50 is pretty steep - even for amazing secretness. But alas, the crisp ?20 note in my pocket was burning with the need to be used.
