Millennium Quest in 2003
Impromptu Millennium Harper for Maryland
| I have declared and completed my own
Millennium Quest in 2003.
For this quest, I declared my intent to become "Impromptu Millennium Harper
for Maryland." I wanted to strive to overcome my shyness to play when I am
not booked or invited to, and instead played impromptu performances
wherever I had a harp and a reasonable location to play. This could have
been at a fast-food place on the way to a gig, or at a cemetery after a
funeral, or at a friend's house. It could have been in my own living room
when I have guests over. It could end up having been anywhere, anytime,
and for any length of time. I attempted to do this during 2003 every time
opportunity arises, with a goal of doing this at least 25 separate times
during the year.
This Quest was completed in November, 2003.
Millennium Quest in 2005
Millennium Harper to the Isle of Lewis for 2005
|I, Jo Morrison, declare my quest
to become "Millennium Harper to the Isle of Lewis for 2005." In this quest I
will attempt to play for a minimum of 25 different people on the island while
here. This could be in any setting, and is likely to mostly be in my or other
people's homes. The quest will be over whether I reach my goal or not when I
leave the island on March 4th.
This Quest was completed in March, 2005.
