Djúpilækur á Langanesströnd. Píla Pína er að hugsa í þessum orðum; "Hvar er allt fólkið sem var hér forðum?"

Hagamúsin Píla Pína situr á bæjarhólnum þar sem gamli torfbærinn stóð. (this abandoned place belongs to my mother and her family, siblings etc.)

 

My Uncle wrote a children's book and called it Píla Pína. The main caracter in the book was the little woodmouse - Píla Pína. She left home to seek adventure and meet her

cousins ​​the house mice and also to see the how the people looked like.

 

Later the songs from the book were published on a LP and CD.

 

On the song below her mother, Gína, sings about how much she misses her.
