Today you can write about anything, in whatever genre or form, but your post must mention a dark night, your fridge, and tears (of joy or sadness; your call).
The evening is quickly turning into a dark night
watching game seven of the World Series
It is down to the last out for the Royals with a runner on third
Salvador Perez pops out to third baseman Pablo Sandoval in foul territory
And just like that The Giants are World Champions
I think back to the Dodgers season and what could have been….
I cannot watch the celebration so I turn the TV off and head to the fridge
Would a bowl of ice cream make me feel any better?
It does while I am eating it but then the sadness takes over.
The baseball season is really over
A knot builds on my throat and I cannot hold back the tears.
I feel like this tree I pass by in the fall missing its leaves
The WordPress photo Challenge for this week that ends today is Escape. For more information on this week’s photo challenge go here http://dailypost.wordpress.com/category/photo-challenges/
If you know me, you know that my home away from home is Dodger Stadium so for me the word Escape brings to mind being at Dodger Stadium. Nothing makes me happier than to head to my Blue Heaven on Earth, Dodger Stadium or as I like to call it OLOCR, Our Lady of Chavez Ravine so here are some pictures that means my Escape to a happy place
From Opening Day
I like sitting in my seats, watch game, listen with my headphones and keep score.
My view as I exit the stadium
The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge for this week is “From Above” http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/05/03/weekly-photo-challenge-from-above/#comments A picture taken from above.
With the theme in mind I reviewed some of my pictures. I found this one that I took from above, the last row of the Top Deck (the last level) of Dodger Stadium.
From above to below the field, Matt Kemp at the plate on a Sunday afternoon at Dodger Stadium. Note the shadows, the location of the ball as it makes a hole on his shadow, the umpire in position and the catcher ready to catch the ball.
That game was Sunday, September 9, 2012. Dodgers lost the game against the Cardinals in 12 inning with the score of 5-2. Kemp went 1 for 5 with a groundball in the first inning, a strikeout in the 3rd, a double in the 6th, a strikeout in the 8th and in the 10th inning with the bases full and two outs, Kemp flied out out to center field.
Here is a recent panoramic picture I took from my seats in the Top Deck
It is a long way down but I like the view from above. I see the game, I see the mountains, I get a panoramic view of the game.
Today Tuesday, May 7, 2013, the Dodgers find themselves way below in last place in their division. They need to crawl out and rise above.
me: “Quick! Do the Weekly Photo Challenge from WordPress before Friday!”

I took this picture last Friday before I devoured the fish tacos.
Fish tacos with orange and jicama slaw. One co-worker came back complaining that they had run out of the fish tacos. I will definitely make the orange jicama slaw.
Today I had a spinach salad with quinoa, carrots, cranberries, chick peas, edamame, pumpkin seeds and carrot ginger miso dressing. It was yummy! I bought it from Trader Joe’s. I love that place.
Enjoying my spinach salad while I check some facts in the 2012 Dodgers guide.
First picture I had it on Instagram and I was having dificulty copying it. The second picture I had uploaded it to Twitter.
