Back In The High Life?

I’ve been getting excited about some new things that have come my way lately and it has gotten me thinking that I may be actually getting back in the photo biz as a career!  That thought has me TOTALLY STOKED!  I won’t get into all the “timeless” details here… yet.  While I was working on a photo project I was listening to Pandora when a cool Steve Winwood song came on, “Back In The High Life”.  I looked up the lyrics and I’ll be if it does not describe where I’m at with my photography to a tee.  Check it out:

It used to seem to me
That my life ran on too fast
And I had to take it slowly
Just to make the good parts last

But when you’re born to run
It’s so hard to just slow down
So don’t be surprised to see me
Back in that bright part of town

I’ll be back in the high life again
All the doors I closed one time
Will open up again
I’ll be back in the high life again
All the eyes that watched me once
Will smile and take me in

And I’ll drink and dance with one hand free
Let the world back into me
And oh I’ll be a sight to see
Back in the high life again

Girl you used to be the best
To make life be life to me
And I hope that you’re still out there
And you’re like you used to be

We’ll have ourselves a time
And we’ll dance till the morning sun
And we’ll let the good times come in
And we won’t stop till we’re done

We’ll be back in the high life again
All the doors I closed one time
Will open up again
We’ll be back in the high life again
All the eyes that watched us once
Will smile and take us in

And we’ll drink and dance with one hand free
And have the world so easily
And oh we’ll be a sight to see
Back in the high life again

High life
High life
In the high life again

We’ll be back in the high life again
All the doors I closed one time
Will open up again
We’ll be back in the high life again
All the eyes that watched us once
Will smile and take us in

And we’ll drink and dance with one hand free
And have the world so easily
And oh we’ll be a sight to see
Back in the high life again

High life
Back in the high life
Oh, we’ll be back

It seems even more fitting that this song came out of the 80s, when I left photojournalism, when I closed the door as a career.  Now…  I’m opening that door again.  I feel like I can see the light behind the door opening up again, back to my first career love, that lovely lady.  Back in the high life.
