about

My baby blanket my mother made for me sewn into my favorite sweater as a lining. The yellow script says "On a summer day..." which was a line she would use to start stories. To this day her love literally and figuratively keeps me warm. I love you mom.

lyrics

"Over in the meadow in the sand in the sun
lived an old mother turtle and her little turtle one
Wink said the mother
I'll blink said the son
So they winked and they blinked
in the sand and the sun

I thought for so long
that that melody belonged
to the great unknown catalogue
of American folk songs

But no, my mother wrote
it for me when just a child
and so she calls me
her little turtle sometimes"
