American Idol: Still voting for Lauren.
Glee: They had to lose to return next season. They all look too old to be going into Senior year - even for college - yet great entertainment.
This is the day history repeats itself ... no not a time loop or blip in the grid ... but the annual procession of ships that sail under the Verrazano Bridge each year on their way to NY harbor, ushering in another Fleet Week. Sometime in the late morning one ship always stops just outside and fires on Brooklyn, the booming sound signaling a connection to the fight for freedom ... the ships continue on past the State of Liberty. It's all symbolic for some, of not interest to others. One thing we all embrace - it creates the energies for the start of the Memorial Day weekend. This morning military helicopters fly overhead surveying the waterways below. All is sunny and calm in Brooklyn as summer is about to begin.

Since 1984, New York City has held Fleet Week to honor the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. The week features extensive military demonstrations, as well as the opportunity for the public to tour some of the visiting ships. The Memorial Day commemoration is a highlight of the week's festivities, featuring the singing of Taps and a military aircraft fly over in honor of those who lost their lives in service to the United States.
Oprah's Farewell Shows
As you know, after 25 years Oprah is saying good-bye to The Oprah Show. I've watched the show off and on for years, perhaps more so in 2011. For many, 2011 was a sentimental journey in rapidly changing times.
Where were you 25 years ago? How have you grown? I was divorced, living in Manhattan Beach Brooklyn, my daughters were almost grown, and had begun the part of my journey shown to me in 1954 that would bring me to where I am today.
Clients always ask me what they can do to make a difference in the world. - not on a small scale, as time is moving too fast now - but on a grand scale - something linked to the shift of human consciousness as the program closes. Are you one of those people? It seems to be all that matters to everyone - as if they are programmed to do something at the end. I tell those clients that the key players on the world stage, who are here to make a universal difference, have all been in place for years, as if that was their destinies, and they have lived them. They are the Real People - not those ego driven - who have worked tirelessly to enlightened the world for decades. When mentioning who they are, I always start with Oprah.
You must see Tuesday's farewell show if not to say good-bye, but for the entertainment. Aretha Franklin was amazing. Do you want to see Maria Shriver looking like herself - well there she was with Oprah, Gayle, and Steadman and more celebrities than I can mention.
In 1986, the doors to new worlds were about to open throughout the program, attracting people based on grid alignment for experience ...... accelerating till the end of time. We would all grow and become very different people because of Oprah and through our own tireless efforts to help ourselves and others.
During Tuesday's show, a sweeping feeling of nostalgia came over me ... closure is here ... not only for Oprah, but with the end of time spent in this program, learning, growing and now returning to who we are. For some the journey started decades ago, for others, more recently, with a need to hurry as something internal is saying, "Time is short." Each day we read about the madness in the world mixed with lots of love and light and a feeling of all things being connected and going somewhere ... home.
If you watched the season finale of The Event Monday night - it was about rebirth. In the final moments, Leila, who is half human, half alien, announces her pregnancy (shades of Taken). As the alien planet comes through the portal, Christina Martinez, the First Lady, stands with her young son who asks, "What it is?" She answers, "Home." This is all that remains. We are all going home, not another Earth, back to light and consciousness.
