It occurs to me that Alan may be looking for a global way to arbitrary link his 
various files and locations.

I do that here, on macOS by extensively using the OS provided tagging 
facilities. I can "call" all the tagged files in one (or many) category by 
using the system-wide search mechanism "Spotlight" and by specifying "tag: 
whatever" and then I have all the items tagged as such displayed in a 
centralized file manager window where I can work on them and they can be opened 
in their various associated applications, etc.

I guess if there was a similar tagging system in Emacs (or is there?), it would 
be relatively easy to emulate a similar behavior.
