    Any account of a natural process must be a simplification. The written word can
    only sketch the variety that is integral to growth and change. This is true whether
    it is a garden that is being described or a human career. But for a career there is a
    further distortion. The sequence of activities that intertwine to make a period in a
    person's life when written as a history has far more shape and direction to it than
    it ever has at the time, when it is being experienced.
