One of the interesting outcomes of my recent portfolio organization that I have undertaken recently is that it has given me a perspective on my work that I don't think that I have had before.  Looking back over ten plus years of work, I am able to see common threads and themes throughout my work that I didn't or couldn't see at the time.  I am really discovering the old maxim of "You don't know where you are going unless you know where you have been" to be very true these days, because the individual points in your life only begin to make sense and take shape given time, when the connection between them is made and a trajectory becomes apparent.
