Secrets

We went to A Midnight Visit and in one room, there was a web with papers attached and a writing desk. The papers asked 'what is your secret?' and they asked you to lighten your load by unburdening yourself and letting go of your secret.
The first I read made me chuckle "My girlfriend is the fun police". I'm presuming the girlfriend was there, not into the show and wanting to leave.
There was also "I'm good at keeping secrets".
Then as I got more intrigued by the secrets, they became sadder.
The devastating lonely cry "I wish I could feel normal"
and the heartbreaking "I've never been in love".

It's a funny feeling reading other people's personal thoughts, and it was for me the most fascinating part of the show - my reluctance to leave that room and stop reading them was strong. I'm not sure what I was wanting to discover, or make of the information I read there.

We were not allowed to take photos but I loved the visual of this room, and I see my thoughts in a web around a writing desk, where I'm punching them all out then casting them aside, but they're stuck in the web around me....(The only Insta photo I could find...)

I guess the lesson is that there is someone out there thinking just like us (probably billions of people) and even if they aren't, there are probably crowds of people happy to listen and comfort you, if only you're willing to share...so maybe it's time to unburden yourself of secrets and discover the lightness once free.

Forgive the rambling, I'm still trying to process why I liked this room so much (the emotive reaction, obviously). Note also there's discount tix for this week (incl Halloween) on SmartTix

  5. wow, this is truly fascinating, I wouldn't be able to stop reading them either. It is true that we often keep almost identical secrets and when we feel we can open up we find out we are not as alone as we though! #GlobalBlogging @HeatherKeet and @MusingsTiredMum
