There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that receives it.

On this day in music history: August 30, 1986 - “Higher Love” by Steve Winwood hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 1 week. Written by Steve Winwood and Will Jennings, it is the first chart topping single for the British born singer and musician. Following the lukewarm response to his previous album “Talking Back To The Night” in 1982, Winwood will take a lengthy hiatus from the music business to regroup, and begin work on his next album. When Winwood begins working on the “Back In The High Life” album with producer Russ Titelman, he will suggest bringing in Chaka Khan to contribute vocals to the track after hearing Winwood’s demo for “Higher Love”. Chaka’s fellow Rufus bandmate, drummer John Robinson will also play on the song, adding live drums and the electrifying intro percussion and breakdown to the pre-programmed drum machine rhythm. Released as the first single from “Back In The High Life”, it will be an immediate smash. Entering the Hot 100 at #77 on June 14, 1986, it will climb to the top of the chart eleven weeks later. The success of the “Back In The High Life” album and “Higher Love” will earn a total of six Grammy nominations, including Album Of The Year. Winwood will win two Grammy Awards for the single, including Best Pop Vocal Performance, Male and Record Of The Year in 1987.

A view of this beautiful geyser basin at the west end of Yellowstone Lake.

That looks like Maggie & Jiggs (officially known as Twin Geyser)!!Yet another place in Jellystone that I dearly miss.

1979 my family took a road trip from Michigan to California hitting all the hotspots in between. Two weeks out and two weeks back. Yellowstone,  Grand Canyon, Bad Lands, Pike’s Peak, Mt. Rushmore, Great Salt Lake, Sequoia, etc. Was pretty cool.
