MasterClass Memorial Day Monday: Katharine McPhee And Trent Harmon’s 2016 Performance At The National Memorial Day Concert 


Katharine McPhee, Trent Harmon, National Memorial  Day Concert 2016

As I write this article about Katharine McPhee’s and Trent Harmon’s beautiful performances at the National Memorial Day Concert in Washington DC which aired on PBS on May 29th, I am also watching the CNN coverage of President Obama’s visit to Arlington National Cemetery. These tributes deserve your time – today and always. I am appreciative and touched and inspired by those who gave their lives to make America a better place in which to live.

I also thought that both singers were noteworthy -literally and figuratively – reminders of the immense talent produced by American Idol over the past 15 years.

Katharine was Runner-Up on Season 5 and Trent won the crown during Idol’s Season 15’s Finale last month.

Will You Forgive or Flounder

The Reflecting Pool

Are you holding onto something that you need to let go of?


047882355_6_xlargeI think that no matter how far along you have come in life there are always some things that have stuck with you and even though you think that you have let go of it, you really haven’t.

For me to be happy in life and to really enjoy the experiences that I am blessed with every day, there is a constant letting go of perceived slights, whether big or small. Forgive it and release it from your life.

Today I am thinking about the process of how I let things go and what experiences I have to let drift into the ether, and cease to be a problem for me.
