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 combined from many ideas. The Marvel Comics character, Elektra, created by Frank Miller, fascinates me. Her childhood did major damage psychologically, but she is capable of much love and goodness. We have that in common.

I am a retired Texas teacher of 30+ years. I enjoy writing, and I hope you enjoy reading my blog. I like winning the fight, and sharing the the story.

The purpose of my blog is to share and teach how to grow and nurture feelings of self-worth, love, peace, community, and self-reliance. Please leave comments on my posts. I love critical thinkers, and I like to hear from you. Also, you can subscribe below .
