Dream job in tropical paradise

My ex-colleagues shared a WANTED: EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR job posting on Facebook today. Who wouldn’t want to work with the poet laureate of Maui and help make his dreams come true? Reading the job description nearly made me jump on the airplane and fly back to Maui to apply for this job. My hand is on the CLICK SEND button, with my CV and cover letter ready to go. I have the qualifications and experience. The location is the tropical rain forest of Maui, an enchanting place called Haiku, pronounced “ha-i-ku” where you can’t wait to greet the sun at daybreak and marvel at the full moon. It also has my namesake.

Before I left Maui in June 2016, I had posted WANTED ADS — Hawaii was looking for teachers. I was leaving my position, because try as I might, I couldn’t teach online or keep my job while I was away. My musician friends on Facebook enquired about the huge shortage of teachers on the islands. Sadly, there was a reason for these vacancies. The cost of living was too high for teachers.
