The daily prompt form WordPress for those of us who recklessly signed up to make a blog post every day suggests:

“Write about one thing you’ve never told anyone and explain why”.

I have just read Don Delillo’s novella Point Omega and am preparing to write some impressions of this.

Some lines of his that I underlined give an articulate  summary of why I will be ignoring this WordPress topic:

“If you reveal everything, bare every feeling, ask for understanding, you lose something crucial to your sense of yourself. You need to know things the others don’t know. It’s what no one knows about you that allows you to know yourself”.

Somehow I don’t think DeLillo uses Facebook!

How do you feel about posting secrets in cyberspace?
