After five years and 500,000 postcards our PostSecret mail-carrier has retired to England. You'll be missed Kathy.

Sonia Warren now delivers our secrets. Welcome Sonia!

The following message arrived from a New Zealand postal worker and was originally published in the second PostSecret book.

I just finished up seven years working at a mail center; and over that time I would come across PostSecret postcards, and take the time to read them. Some were funny, some touching, some heartbreaking. But every time I read them I knew I was in a privileged position-- not only because I was perhaps one of the first people to read these beautifully crafted cards, but also because I was being let into somebody's soul and sharing with them whatever emotion they invested into creating the card.

I just want to let people out there know that even if your postcard doesn't show up on the website, there's a hardworking postal worker who is taking the time to read your secret, and who identifies with this brave, faceless, nameless sender.
