One day before the season begins, I found myself heading up Elysian into the Dodger Stadium parking lot. The gate attendant draws my attention to follow a blue line that will take me to the Stadium Club. I am no stranger to the Stadium Club, but I never had noticed the super-convenient blue line that takes you on a beeline directly to Lot M. It kind of made me think about all the things I don’t notice in life. Like the birthdays of people I care about.

The parking lot has that “morning of a wedding” day feel. There are all kinds of people coming in and out of the stadium with purpose. Crews are landscaping and painting. Chavez Ravine is being primped and primed. I feel like I should have worn an Easter dress. It’s that big of a day.
