 I love to flip and rotate sketches just to see if I can make them work 'backwards'.  It's like an exercise.  I used to do something similar, I suppose, when I was studying piano at the conservatory.  I'd play my scales backwards, with a different scale for each hand, and at different rhythms.  Why?..............Just.....
