    Quintessential Listening: Poetry Online Radio Presents Teal Jandrain

    in Poetry

    Teal Jandrain is a prismatic emanation of rainbows in human form. She's been acting most of her life, appearing in over fifty theatrical productions in her home town of Fort Collins Colorado. She attended acting school at The American Musical and Dramatic Academy in Hollywood. Some of her favorite roles include Abigail Williams in The Crucible, Jill in Equus, The Moon in Lorca's Blood Wedding, Susie in Wait a Until Dark, and as the titular character in a trio of music videos for the band White Water Ramble called, A Band Widow's Lament. Teal's love of acting, screenwriting, and the study of human behavior helped fuel her passion for poetry. She loves the freedom of being a poet because she's always proudly scribbled outside the lines. Her ultimate dream is to make films that stir souls. Teal often wears costumes whilst galavanting in what's commonly known as "the real world," and fearlessly defends the dwindling magic remaining in the universe. Her mother Kate also appeared on QLPOR, and read poetry. Looking at bios from previous episodes has given Teal tremendous new goals. She intends to never grow up, dress more eccentrically the older she gets, always collect unicorns, obsessively write, nurture the growth of empathy among fellow dreamers, and inspire those who have forgotten how to dream to do so again. After walking away from 15 tough years in the restaurant industry, Teal started a YouTube channel called, TealztheRealDeal on January 1st, 2021, and completed her goal of releasing original poetry every day for 365 days. As an old soul, Teal frequents antique stores where she enjoys smelling old books and perusing treasures of days gone by. She still calls people on the phone, handwrites letters, and cherishes her VHS and cassette tape collection. During the pandemic,she became a collage artist which she sees as poetry through imagery. Teal is often described as "weird," she sees it as a huge compliment.

Late Night... Another late night and my thoughts wander... drawing from my memories, strong emotions, needing to be expressed. My pen almost burning in my hand as I hold it firmly, trying to begin. My thoughts jumbled together, the only common thread is the emotion. Suddenly, my pen glides on paper, sentences appear, first one then another. Verse after verse, each yearning to be heard and understood. Seeking refuge in the quiet of the late night. These confessions calm my soul.                         Jean The Curtain Opens ... The Stage is lit...C'mon ... Step Up... Grab Up The Mic and Say Something!!

    Close Up Radio Spotlights Author and Retired Police Lieutenant Patricia L. Blake

    in Books

    Yerington, NV – Patricia L. Blake is a retired police lieutenant and the author of Touched by the Hand of God: In the City of Angels – Send Me!
    Touched by the Hand of God: In the City of Angels – Send Me! is a personal account of the powerful emotional side of police work and its impact on officers and families.
    “I realized my story could make a difference with people who find themselves in times of terror, stress or desperation. It’s important for them to know that there is a higher power that care and is there for you. I hope that it makes a difference in people's lives,” says Patty. “And I hope that they gain new insight and perspective on police officers. I believe most of us are there for the right reason.”
    Patty says Touched by the Hand of God: In the City of Angels – Send Me! required three years of intense work.
    Patty was inspired to become a police officer following a traumatic near-death experience with her first husband as a 19-year-old.
    Since that fateful day, Patty says God has guided her throughout her life to protect the innocent and the vulnerable, and she would go on to serve a police officer for 33 years.
    “It was a calling. I wanted to make a difference to help the children,” says Patty. “I loved working in the streets and in the field, because it's so fluid, and you make such a difference. I was incredibly blessed to work different assignments and I always saw them as a chance to learn how to be a better leader and make a difference not only in the community but with the officers themselves.”
    Touched by the Hand of God: In the City of Angels – Send Me! is dedicated to the incredible heroes, our first responders and our military warriors.
