What is a simple-minded suburbanite?

I live in the suburbs.  There, I said it.  Never thought I would.  Glad I do, most of the time.  It’s hard, though, to keep my head about myself, stay authentic and true, and keep focused on what is important.  Not money, not my home, not the brand of shoes on my feet.  But, the simple things.  Family, home, environment, humanity, creativity, authenticity.  I’m amazed, every day of how many people here struggle with these things or simply, don’t really care about these things, or even fight against these ideas.  This is my quest to stay on track.  This is me reminding myself to avoid simple-mindedness as in “not so smart” or “part of the heard”, but stay on the path of simple minded as in valuing simplicity.
