Sad day reflecting on the life of Jane Henson
It is indeed a sad day when a beloved figure of World Puppetry leaves us. Jane Henson was adored by puppeteers worldwide as a generous propagator of our esteemed art. Jane, wife of the late muppet-master, Jim Henson, passed away yesterday of cancer at their family home in Greenwich, Connecticut, USA.
As I head off today to begin a six-week European workshop tour, I fell sad but grateful to have been part of an all embracing community that reached out and touch the hearts and minds of our small puppetry community in every corner of this tiny planet. Fare thee well Jane Henson.
