rcg's dallas

last time i was in dallas
i didn't really get to see dallas.


the weather was gray and rainy.
it was cold outside.
and for the most part,
i stayed in grand prairie. 


none of these things is necessarily bad,
but it does mean that i didn't get to see 
all of the places that made rcg who he is today.


i didn't see his elementary school,
or his mother's hair salon, 
or his uncle's restaurant.


i didn't see the famous
and "dangerous"
oak cliff.


 i didn't see the places where he hung out
 or the places where he got into trouble.


but this trip,
i did.





and it was sunny and warm.
hallelujah.





i know we are sometimes
a product of our environment, 
so this is just a sample of rcg. 



the 1980s and 1990s version.
