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.

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

the 1980s and 1990s version.
