Interview with Doreen Orion

I just wrapped up my interview with Doreen Orion, author of Queen of the Road.  What a phenomenal gal.  She really drove home a lot of wonderful points… many of which I often try to convey, although perhaps without the pointed wit so evident in her story. 

We discussed the idea of spending 365 days in 340 square feet… with one’s husband…. EEEEEEEEEK!  Essentially, it could be the best or worst idea you’ve ever had.  (I believe I got her to reveal that the secret ingredient is…shhhh… laughter!)  We talked a great deal about the value of relationships in general, the role they play in a balanced and contented life, the importance of taking the time to maintain them, the richness they add to life’s experiences, and how they helped her to establish her priorities. 

Another of Doreen’s transformations in the course of her story is that of being a material girl (well she IS a princess, after all!), to a girl with… rather different priorities.  She explained how this came about for her, and gave some suggestions on how others might change their view for a much more relaxed, uncluttered life.

Finally, we explored the idea of taking risks… getting out of your comfort zone.  (I love this girl – we may have been sisters in another life!)  Do you suppose it’s more likely that you will learn your most valuable lessons doing the same things you’ve always done, or by embarking on a new adventure – perhaps driving your own “inner bus?”

Most importantly, we talked about pajamas, martinis, and shoes.  (I DID say she established her priorities, right?)
