Welcome from Eclectra


Glad that you stopped by. Welcome! My author/blog name is Eclectra. My style of writing, living, and thinking is eclectic or a combination of various ideas. I enjoy sharing articles and stories highlighting the learning I have embraced over the last half-century. My writing contributes ideas for self-healing and nurtures feelings of self-worth, love, peace, community, and self-reliance.

Don’t be shy to leave comments on my posts. I enjoy critical thinkers, and I like to hear from readers. Click any menu item above to explore my publications, or scroll down below the picture and click on Eclectra Blog.

I am a retired Texas teacher of 30+ years. I view the journey of life as a challenge, and I am eager to win. I hope you enjoy reading my blog because I love sharing the story.

If you want to receive email notifications of new posts, scroll down to the green subscribe button on the Eclectra Blog page to follow me. My intention for future publications is twice a week on Sunday and Thursday. Thank you for your time.
