Small towns fight any surrealist tentacle. They are the keepers of the realism's realm. Small town delis. Bulk buying. Sedated. Live a good life and avoid unsafe places. Western stereotypes are the pillars of reality. Clothes made in China, Peru, Macao, Colombia, Thailand, Mauritius. Could they feel free without history's tons on their shoulders? They prepare future. I excuse some of their mistakes. Uncharted, unwritten. They're brave enough to draw a path for the future. Not a stylish one, but it is a path.
