Me as a College Harp Nerd

I was kinda cute, though, doncha think? (That would have been around 1983 or so, when I was a student at Taylor University in Indiana.)

That is awesome!!! Thanks for sharing! Do you still play?

LOL! Glad you liked it Anne! We haven't found a way to keep a harp safe in Honduras, so haven't brought my huge (expensive) concert grand down here. I've looked into purchasing a small floor harp to bring down, but even that purchase would be several thousand dollars, and then the gradual damage to the harp from having it in our home here.

I have occasional pangs of harplessness, especially now as my kids are older and I have a bit of time to think about doing things just for my own enjoyment. For now, though, this is an "oh well."

So, in answer to your question, I don't still play, because I don't have access to an instrument . . . but I would if I could.

It's the sassy ringlet in front of your ear that completes the entire look, don't you think? :)

Thanks Trish. What a nice memory!
Is there another instrument that would fill your "harp-gap?" In the mountains of North Carolina they make a beautiful instrument that I've heard called a lap harp. It might be a dulcimer? Would you like one of those?
