Sunshine is based on one of the first melodies I ever wrote. Since then, this melody has subtly worked its way into many of my pieces. It has been a source of continuous comfort throughout the last few years by reminding me of home wherever I am. Therefore, incorporating this melody into Sunshine was not an accident. Rather, this melody was the foundation for Sunshine because I wrote and performed it to propose to my wife.
