Unscramble the Blue Letters

From that came a lot of insights, or ohugstits, as I called them, things that I learned since lnsiog my sgiht. These outsights ranged from the trival to the puofnrod, from the mundane to the huourmos. As an architect, that stark juxtaposition of my sighted and unsighted experience of the same places and the same cities within such a short peoird of time has given me all sorts of wonderful outsights of the city itself. Paramount amongst those was the realization that, actually, cities are fantastic places for the blind. And then I was also surprised by the city's propensity for kindness and care as opposed to indifference or worse. And then I started to rleizae that it seemed like the blind seemed to have a positive influence on the city itself. That was a little curious to me.

Original Text

From that came a lot of insights, or outsights, as I called them, things that I learned since losing my sight. These outsights ranged from the trival to the profound, from the mundane to the humorous. As an architect, that stark juxtaposition of my sighted and unsighted experience of the same places and the same cities within such a short period of time has given me all sorts of wonderful outsights of the city itself. Paramount amongst those was the realization that, actually, cities are fantastic places for the blind. And then I was also surprised by the city's propensity for kindness and care as opposed to indifference or worse. And then I started to realize that it seemed like the blind seemed to have a positive influence on the city itself. That was a little curious to me.
