Last night I drove through the sports district, with its wide streets and parking lots all vacant and dark. While immersed in my own thoughts, I was surprised to see the sunset flash through the new Dallas Cowboys stadium in brilliant colors instead of just orange. The stadium was fully lit inside, huge TV screens and scoreboards glittering, seating decks ablaze with neon as hundreds of workers prepared it for tomorrow's Thanksgiving ritual. Tomorrow tens of thousands of humans will bustle over these lots and fill the seats while a far greater number watch on distant screens, all focused on a little patch of grass in the heart of this huge concrete setting. Then the workers will clean and close and shut down, leaving the gray walls silent and the streets once again empty.
Taken in haste out the car window; by the time I'd turned around for a better shot, the sun had set.
