Le Bon Journal questions for July issue

Second passions and personal philosophies

Dear Readers,

I would like to hear from you about your second passions and personal philosophies for the next Le Bon Journal (LBJ) electronic magazine. LBJ is a multi-contributory publication for self-expression. In time, it will be a vehicle for the sponsorship of the arts and other forms of self-expression.

What are second passions? You would think that it's what people do for a living. That is not necessarily so. I, for instance, longed to do what I love but not have to love what I do.

Everybody has his or her own view of life and ways to cope with situations. You develop your personal philosophy which is unique to you.

Some people align their personal philosophies to their passions. Others can't seem to juggle the two.

If you wish to remain anonymous for the publication, let me know. But do leave me your e-mail address so that I can check back with you on corrections.

I am accepting input from now until middle of June, to give time for corrections. You will get an acknowledgement of receipt. Tell your friends, colleagues, and family.

Yours sincerely,

Anne Ku

editor, Le Bon Journal e-zine
