Postsecret Valentines

Here are my favorite secrets from the valentines themed Sunday Postsecret had.

If I were a writer, as in I actually writing things in my spare time (other than blog posts), this is the kind of thing that I would use as inspiration for stories. Why doesn't he she have a ring anymore? Did she leave him? Did she he die? Did he leave her? What kinds of conclusions can you draw from a picture of a hand with 4 words around it?
This one made me smile. In a "this person is so stupid and I can't believe that they are throwing away so much for what sounds like nothing in return" kind of a way. And it also reminds me of why I want to believe in Love. Sometimes I think it's okay to do something because your heart tells you to.
Again, I think there could be a lot of story behind this one. Maybe this person was born with HIV through their mother, maybe they slept around, maybe they were given tainted blood. Both the postcard before this, and this one include a person doing something difficult for others to understand, all in the name of love. Here I think it's noble, and a little bit beautiful too.

I agree. I love him. Jerry Maguire said it best "You complete me."

Remember that day when you went through your book and put sticky notes on all the naughty ones? That was a great day to remember because you made me giggle... lots!

Ambs-I still have them all there. I just didn't want to deface the book, it's so pretty to have pages writeen out. But I don't need to be looking at those naughty things.

a few comments... the memo one is just sad to me. it is another example of someone living less of a life for the desperation of "love". i wonder how much happier she would be if she followed her heart and in doing so, found someone to love her back. i wonder if she just THINKS this guy is her heart. you never know, it could end up as a beautiful love story, or a wasted life.

haha i hit the comment limit. anyway, the feeling whole thing i get because i think loving awakens something inside of you that you are not whole without. i DID go to the postsecret page and watch the valentine's day video, which was amazing.

I think the hand in the first photo is of a woman.

Ally-Those videos are so good. I like hearing peoples comments about the postcards, because I think you can find such different interpretations. Which is the very reason why art is so amazing!

Shay-Any old woman maybe? The nails do look really manicured. But it's a pretty androgynous shot. Either way, it's just sad.

Shay, I thought it was a lady hand too, but I didn't want to call it out if i was the only one! :)

So apparently everyone else things that is a woman's hand. I should pay closer attention to detail.
