Valerie Klemetti Blessley: Millennium Harper of Pacific Northwest Waters, 2002


I, Valerie Klemetti Blessley, hereby claim the title of Millennium Harper of Pacific Northwest Waters

Here is my declaration as posted in early 2002:

To complete the quest, I will play my harp on or beside various bodies of water in Washington and Oregon on at least 25 occasions and/or in at least 25 locations. These locations will include: The Columbia River, The Willamette River, The Multnomah Channel, Vancouver Lake, Lacamas Lake, and various other bays, coves, tributaries, marinas, banks and beaches on or near them. I will bless these bodies of water with music from my harp or kantele (Finnish harp) on land, on docks and in a boat, especially on our own "Andante." Since these mighty rivers flow to the Pacific Ocean, may those blessings flow to those who travel the waterways, and across the ocean to other parts of the world.

I will provide the necessary documentation in the form of witness signatures and/or photographs as evidence of my completion of the quest. This quest will be completed within one year -- before March 17, 2003, St. Patrick's Day.
