I know that many will have the immediate impulse to reply, "Yes - are you stupid?", but we do have some concerns I was hoping to get some advice about, especially from people who live there, have lived there, or have spent extended amounts of time there.
Both of us are active in the arts, espcially small-scale, shoestring budget local stuff (I'm a theatrical director, she's a dancer), and we are both wondering what the scene is like there. We've also heard troubling reports of racial tensions from friends who have been there. On the other hand - it's Honolulu! On the other other hand, we really like where we live now (Tucson, Arizona). On the other other other hand, it's a really good job.
As you can see, we've been tying ourselves in knots about it. This would be a big move for both of us, and we only have a few weeks to decide if we're going to do it, so we're feeling rather stressed about it.
