Keepsake #1.

My mother was given this book on her eighth birthday. She had the measles and wasn't allowed to read it. She lay in a darkened room for a week. All she had to amuse herself with was a contraband piece of sheet music and an orange wax crayon. She lay on the bed in the dark and scribbled over the notes on the paper.
