How often does one have the opportunity to be in Paris in the springtime? Or to fulfill a lifelong dream?
In 1996, S. Kay Burnett got the opportunity to work and live in Paris for six months. Email was a fairly new means for communicating and she used it to send a series of newsletters she entitled “Emails From Paris.”
She intertwines excerpts from her emails and journals with encaustic paintings to convey the emotions and magic of living in Paris. A story about being open to new experiences, coping with expatriate angst, surviving a long distance relationship, falling in love, and embracing the joy of living (joie de vivre).
