Dear fellow writers and/or potential readers of my blog,

Here’s what I want for you as a result of following my blog: To be amused. To learn something from me. To be encouraged to be your own unique self. To experience something new, which could be a musical artist or new genre, a recipe, a great place to travel, a movie, or a way of looking at something.

I am beyond enthusiastic about creative writing. Always have been. I’ve been writing since I was a kid growing up in the 70’s and 80’s in northern Minnesota. I’ve been blogging for almost three years now. Getting comments really trips my trigger. I love interacting with my readers and the opportunities I’ve had with this blog to encourage other bloggers and be encouraged by them. I hope to make real and positive connections with you.

I am optimistic (at least 88% of the time anyway) and I’m on a path. That’s why this blog is not called “Rhonda’s Path” but “Pollyanna’s Path”. Where I land as a writer is unknown, but that’s the fun part. I am a person who loves surprises. I love learning and trying new things to challenge myself to be a better version of me than I was yesterday.

What informs my writing is largely my lifestyle. I moved to Colorado from Wisconsin with my Hubs 3 years ago. We have two adult spawn that sadly live in other states. We are Gen X grandparents approximately 12 years from retiring. I work part time at a non-profit where I run a food bank. It is the best job I have ever had. We adopted a rescue dog this summer which has brought us, thankfully, more joy than challenges.

I hope you all stick around to enjoy my stories and feel inspired to share yours with me and the world.


Tales from an optimist transplanted from Wisconsin to Colorado. Finding silver linings, lifting others up, sharing positively good stuff
