Postcard Confessional

I just want to share this site: Post Secret with the hopes that many of you will experiment with doing cards yourself. If it would help you to send the cards to someone, you can send them to the address on the site or to me via my university address: Dept. of English, Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, OH 43403.

The cards change each week on the site, so it's worth going back from time to time. I heard about this Postcard Confessional on TV. Vicky says she heard about it on NPR. The cards are artistically engaging as well as thought provoking. Please stop by there and take a look. I am very inspired by them. I was so tempted to copy and paste one of the cards into this entry, but that wouldn't be right. They aren't my cards to share.

This is one of the sites I check every Sunday...

I especially like the Vegas one this week...

I have had it on my side bar for a while but haven't ever sent one in, although I have a couple. It would unerve me to see them there.

I found them on pimped on a web site a long long time ago. I go there every once in awhile. Some of them are so painful and raw. After months of following them, it became too sad. Our first Guest Editor highlighted them also. Poor Dan got slammed for going outside AOL for journals to recommend!!!!

I'd never seen this before--how interesting! Thank you for sharing.

The womanchild got me hooked on Post Secrets. She's sent one in, and I've been doodling on one.

I received my back issue of The Sun today.

Blue Velvis is breathtaking and having had my hysterectomy the story touched me deeply.

What a great site. I've bookmarked it, and I think I'll look for the book. Thanks, Theresa.

About Me

Northwest Ohio, United States
"I was no better than dust, yet you cannot replace me. . . Take the soft dust in your hand--does it stir: does it sing? Has it lips and a heart? Does it open its eyes to the sun? Does it run, does it dream, does it burn with a secret, or tremble In terror of death? Or ache with tremendous decisions?. . ." --Conrad Aiken

Fave Painting:  The Three Ages of Man and Death
by Albrecht Dürer

From the First Chapter

The Secret of Hurricanes : That article in the Waterville Scout said it was Shake- spearean, all that fatalism that guides the Kennedys' lives. The likelihood of untimely death. Recently, another one died in his prime, John-John in an airplane. Not long before that, Bobby's boy. While playing football at high speeds on snow skis. Those Kennedys take some crazy chances. I prefer my own easy ways. Which isn't to say my life hasn't been Shake-spearean. By the time I was sixteen, my life was like the darkened stage at the end of Hamlet or Macbeth. All littered with corpses and treachery.
