RJ Dupre Column: A few words to you, my son
Remember, my son, when you were a little boy how you used to like to play with your Star Wars toys, and created great battles in imaginary galaxies? Then came the period of GI Joe. You felt invincible and became a "tactical genius." Then came the video games and virtual reality of...

RJ Dupre Column: Dealing with the French
I come from a culture and country where patience is an unknown quality. The French temperament is very arrogant at times, and we are a pretty feisty bunch. I remember as a child when my Mom and I used to go to the open market everyday to purchase our food. We had to wait in line to...

RJ Dupre Column: You don't know what you've got until it's gone
Very often, we do not realize how we miss things until they are taken away from us and we can't have them. This concept came to my attention last week. I went to the hospital to have a colonoscopy done. It's a procedure necessary when you reach a certain age, which is part of preventive...

RJ Dupre column: Don't think I can? Watch me
It is sunny, the wind is blowing, and it is chilly. I am sitting by the window at a friend's house, looking at her garden. There are beautiful gazing balls, chimes, and on top of an iron stand a bird feeder full of seeds swings gently in the breeze. A group of birds are flying about...

R.J. Dupre Column: Perseverance will get you further
From time to time, I get the need to prove to myself that I can fix things. Hey, I am entitled to delusional thinking once in a while! So on a fine day I decided to fix a broken wooden picture frame and a mirror. I bought a very strong glue to make the repair work. After all, sticking...

Quirky and Quotable: Older than average students
Recently, a friend shed some light on going back to college at 30. I support her and am quite proud of her, and I feel that some of her feelings about her decision warrants being written about. Her immediate emotions were common -- anxiety, excitement, fear of the unknown. Usually...

A divine experience at Wounded Knee
Every summer, I go to a few powwows. It is a way to get spiritually re-centered, and to watch the dancers of all ages offer their talents to their Creator. Three years ago, I went to Wounded Knee, where a huge celebration had been listed on the Internet. It was the first annual...

Quirky and qutoable
It's two o'clock in the morning and I am eating at a truck stop. This time of night is the twilight zone where some people are not quite ready to go home yet. Truckers eat and relax before rushing to their final destination. They criss-cross the country, always pushing...

RJ Dupre column: Coming to terms with being a grandma
Several years ago, I told my children that when they grew up, they could not make me a grandmother until I was ready. Well, two years ago the time came, and it did not happen on my terms. My request was not granted. When my daughter called to tell me she was expecting a baby, I...

On this special day, many will celebrate and honor the woman who gave them birth and raised them, but for many of my "sisters," this day will be painful, lonely and unbearable. They will remember the fear of going to the mall and seeing children playing and how they ran to their...

RJ Dupre column: Can we ever go home again?
What is a home for most of us? It is a dwelling where we gather our belongings to protect them and display them. It is where we eat, sleep, relax and often work at its maintenance. It is also a refuge, (at least in most cases), a haven where we can escape from the hustle and bustle...

RJ Dupre column: Disconnecting the panic button
For many years I was not known to be a patient person. I gave into panic, frustration and anger when faced with a crisis or the execution of a project. I wanted it to be done or resolved, before it ever got started. I would kick and scream, plunge into it without looking and would...

RJ Dupre column: When work is a partnership
In each profession there are different levels of relationships between employers and employees. However the mantra in which "One should die for the Glory of the Empire," is outdated and oppressive. The foundation of a healthy work atmosphere is based on loyalty, honesty, ethics...
