(Just a chat with a friend. I can’t remember why secrecy was on the agenda.)
“People can have happy secrets. Secrets have all this, I don’t know, this baggage – and it’s assumed secrets are always bad. They don’t have to be.
“We shouldn’t be so suspicious, so mistrustful.
“I think there’s a basic respect for privacy. I respect that. And secrecy can be part of someone’s privacy. That’s fine.”
“I think if we were all honest, we’d all admit that we all have secrets that are good secrets. Sensible secrets.
“Yeah – happy secrets.”
