Risky Undertaking features stories to inspire, motivate, encourage and entertain.  The website features blogs to empower confidence, reinvent yourself as a lion tamer, encourage faith along life’s bumps and ruts, explore emotions and the mind/body connection, renew the mind with a peace that transcends all understanding. Stop by my house and sit by the fire or jump in my Outback for a road trip to see what lies just around the bend.


My desire is to edify, to benefit in a way which improves the mind or character, to uplift, encourage and enlighten.  This website is a sort of ER for the soul.  Do you need Emotional Rescue. Want to be Electrified and Revitalized. Could you use some Encouragement and Renewal.  How about a little Entertainment and Refreshment.

1123122111crI am G. Polly Jordan. My pen name comes from my great-grandmother Polly, an adventuresome original with a radiant smile and a twinkle in her eye.  You might also know me as Polly Riddell.  My life is full of adventure which Webster defines as “an exciting or unusual experience; it may also be a bold, usually risky undertaking with an uncertain outcome.”      Ahh…a risky undertaking with an uncertain outcome. A true original in a bold funky way, even in my hometown of Indianapolis, people narrow their eyes and say “you’re not from around here are you?”

Lest you think it is all about emotional rescue, I plan to throw in a few mad capers with Daniella Boone to entertain and enliven your day, a little perspective during 60 Seconds at the Microwave  and 7 Minutes at the Toaster Oven.  When you are crossed-eyed from reading, enjoy photos to transport you to a cabin in the woods or to places of allure or quiet reflection.

Now for what you will find in these diverse pages…
