A Post Secret Project

Happy weekend my pretty people!

I hope all is well in your land, and either way, know that I am sending you some love.

This weekend, Linnie gets Laced has a lovely little experiment to announce, and no, we won't be growing any mould today.

You may or may not recall that my parents are crazy people (hey, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree). Instead of working to buy the big things they retired early and bought a boat. Then, they moved onto that boat.

They haven't lived a normal life since. Their life is spent sailing south of the 30th parallel (north). As we speak they are crossing the Gulf Stream, on their way to the Bahamas.

This lifestyle has some ups and some downs, but it suits their adventure seeking hearts.

For Christmas, I presented my parents with three of the Post Secret books. If you haven't checked out the Post Secret project, I highly suggest you do. It is one of my most highly anticipated blog feeds.

In a nutshell, Post Secret is a personal art project fuelled by the population at hand. Anyone can take part. Simply put your burning secret on one side of a post card and mail the card to Frank. The anonymous secrets are posted on the Internet for everyone to see. You can read the whole story here.

Well, my mother has taken it on herself to drop each one of the books in a different country. She has posted a note into each cover, asking the receiver of the book to read, enjoy and leave it for another to find. She, very thoughtfully, left my blog address with her note.

It will be interesting to see if we hear from anyone along the way.

Mom has just dropped the first book in Vero Beach, Florida.

If you have received a book, drop me a line, let me know whatever you want to. And please, pass the book along.

Compassionately cheeky,



  1. I love Post Secret, and I think your Mom's project sounds like a fantastic idea!
    I got together with some girl friends one night, and we made some post secrets of our own. We each slipped one underneath a random door in my apartment building, and then we went to a book store and stuck the rest in some Post Secret books. It was a lot of fun! Keep us updated if you hear from anyone.

  2. your parents sound like super fun people! & I am looking forward to see what comes out of this book distribution project!!

  3. What a wonderful idea! Your parent's life sounds like my dream, except I want a van to drive around Australia!

  4. I'm so obsessed with this idea. Like, soooo obsessed.
