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: 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: Ain't no biking mama!
'Tis the season of feeling alive and rejuvenated once again. We emerge from the heavy cocoon of winter and are ready to live every moment of summer. After sprucing up our homes and gardens, it is time for play. We throw ourselves into our favorite pastime, whether it is fishing, hiking,...

RJ Dupre column: Cyber cheating isn't the way out
Nowadays, the Internet has become absolutely indispensable for most people. It is used on a daily basis, for hours at a time in business, the academic arena, research etc... It is the door to the world. Personal ads replace old-fashioned dating by creating a profile accompanied by...

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...

RJ Dupre column: A mother's requiem
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: Memories of a hunting trip
One afternoon, as I was driving back from a client's house in the country, I "ran" into a hunting party. One of the hunters was in his pickup right smack in the middle of the dirt road. Another signaled the sight of a deer, took two shots and the animal died. As I was witnessing this...

Quirky &Quotable column: Peace of a liquid world
It was a sunny day. The sky was a perfect blue. I was walking on the shores of a lake. Calm and beauty were replacing the hustle and bustle of the distant city. Here time was slower and my connection with nature was deeper. I was watching the waves coming back and forth over rocks...

RK Dupre column: Accepting our imperfections
In this world, everything has to be perfect. The body, the mind, the houses we live in, the cars we drive, the children we make, the foods and drinks we consume and so many other things. We end up not accepting what is, aware that we will never have perfection. I like imperfections....

RJ Dupre column: Putting up with hospital protocol
Two years ago, I was admitted into a hospital, in another state, because of chest pains. I arrived there with my friends and was directed to my room. I had brought my pajamas. There was no way I was going to wear their funny gowns. Wearing those garments does not convey to our human...

Quirky & Quotable column: How do you wake up?
One morning I was sitting in bed looking through the window. Squirrels were running on my neighbor's roof rushing about, welcoming a brand new day. As I was observing them, I started thinking about the different ways people start out the next 24 hours. We have several categories....
