Unscramble the Blue Letters

So siitopa, for me, is really a way of seeing. It's blaascily recognizing that Sitopia already exists in little pkteocs everywhere. The tcrik is to join them up, to use food as a way of seeing. And if we do that, we're going to stop seeing cities as big, metropolitan, unproductive blobs, like this. We're going to see them more like this, as part of the productive, organic framework of which they are inevitably a part, symbiotically connected. But of course, that's not a graet image either, because we need not to be producing food like this anymore. We need to be thinking more about permaculture, which is why I think this igame just sums up for me the kind of thinking we need to be doing. It's a re-conceptualization of the way food shapes our lives.

Original Text

So Sitopia, for me, is really a way of seeing. It's basically recognizing that Sitopia already exists in little pockets everywhere. The trick is to join them up, to use food as a way of seeing. And if we do that, we're going to stop seeing cities as big, metropolitan, unproductive blobs, like this. We're going to see them more like this, as part of the productive, organic framework of which they are inevitably a part, symbiotically connected. But of course, that's not a great image either, because we need not to be producing food like this anymore. We need to be thinking more about permaculture, which is why I think this image just sums up for me the kind of thinking we need to be doing. It's a re-conceptualization of the way food shapes our lives.
