Maui Musings

I miss Maui.  Like, really miss it.  It’s weird that I would miss a place so much that I only visited for a week, but today I was looking at an Avon catalog (a lady I work with has just become a rep) and there was a flower on the front that just brought back Maui forcibly to my mind.  It is the same flower that made up our leis at the Feast at Lele in Maui.  As if this weren’t bad enough, my husband was flipping through channels this evening and up popped Lahaina, the little town in Maui that butted up against Ka’anapali, where we stayed.  We were sitting there glued to the screen, exclaiming in turns variations of “Remember that?!  We walked right through there!”

I can’t even blog about Maui.  I just want to go back.  TBear was looking at university jobs in Maui a couple of months ago and found one at the community college that had a starting salary upwards of $40,000.  He then found a site that calculated how that would compare to salaries here (given higher cost of living in Maui, hard as it is to imagine given the ridiculous COL here…), and figured out that $40k in Maui equates to about $19k here.  Yeah.  So that’s pretty much out.  Visiting is doubtless better than living there, anyway, but oh!  I want to go back!  For longer this time!

There are so many places I want to see and things I want to do, and I am still at the point in my life where they seem possible, but I dread the day that I feel that they aren’t…

Sorry my blogging is choppy and fragmented at the mo.  It’s been an incredibly hectic two weeks and my brain can’t even find the words I want – sometimes I feel them slide by, but my mental reflexes are overtaxed and sluggish and I just can’t seem to catch them (although I often get frustratingly close, only to feel them slip through my awareness like little silver minnows).  Hooray for three-day weekends!
