Eclectica is out, and I am in it! In fact the spotlight is on me, as I am the "Spotlight Author," so this is a triple treat! To have poems in a magazine, to be featured, and to have this theatrical theme (because I used to work as an actor) as coincidental icing on the eclectic cake!

index page, and its layout, even if I do get lost in its navigation sometimes, because of my own technological challenge and because I forget to refresh a page I have visited before, etc. And that's why I had not submitted earlier--fear of technology!--but more and more I have been getting over my fears and challenges and submitting to fine and fun online magazines!
