Unscramble the Blue Letters

All this really surprised me, because I started to realize that my unsighted experienced was so far more multi-sensory than my shgietd experience ever was. What srcutk me also was how much the city was changing around me. When you're sighted, everybody kind of sticks to themselves, you mind your own bnuisses. Lose your sight, though, and it's a whole other story. And I don't know who's watching who, but I have a suspicion that a lot of poelpe are watching me. And I'm not paranoid, but everywhere I go, I'm getting all sorts of advice: Go here, move there, wacth out for this. A lot of the information is good. Some of it's hulpefl. A lot of it's kind of reversed. You've got to figure out what they actually meant. Some of it's kind of wrong and not helpful. But it's all good in the grand scheme of things.
