The significant and sometimes contradictory moments

of Darlene Witherspoon


Darlene Witherspoon is a living contradiction. Some say that it is only to be expected living in a chaotic world with deep issues to solve. But Darlene wants to make sense of her world; to find patterns and meaning, to navigate it with grace and perhaps help us all into a better future.

 So out of the complexity she begins to unravel some of the hidden contradictions. She lays them bare, sometimes glimpsing beyond the ordinary, finding new ways to see and new ways to interpret. She begins to realise that her contradictions are not just hers, but part of a larger cultural pattern.

Does this insight liberate her? She is able to choose how she lives these contradictions and how she weaves them into her life. And after a while of dancing the tensions she finds she has transcended them, to become a new person, with new contradictions.

Darlene can now glimpse the mystery and the majesty of being. She is a woman in growth; in transformation and evolution. She embraces her contradictions.  It is the only way she knows of living the significant moments and creating a new future.
