Boomerang (Mason's Theme)

I think a good word to describe Mason is "tenacious." When she gets focused on something, such as a school project, planning the details of a birthday party, or finding a lost book, she sticks to it with intensity until the project is completed or the problem is solved. Like a boomerang, she will keep coming back to the issue at hand. The repetitive phrases in the first section of this piece remind me of Mason persistently coming to me with a request, not willing to give up until every possibility has been exhausted. Mason is also the one most likely to physically and verbally express affection – when she comes home after having been away for a while, she usually greets me with a hug and tells me how much she missed me. I hope she'll continue to look forward to coming home as she grows up and spreads her wings.
