A Message from Heather Henson

Nice to hear from Heather Henson today via Facebook.
Here is what she wrote:

Thank you all for the heartfelt notes of condolence. It will be a process to get to feel comfortable in this new phase of life, without a living mama. My mother was my best friend and by far my number one supporter of my creative development. So with her in the forefront of my mind, we continued our performance commitments to First Works and Rhode Island School of Design and turned this incarnation of our show Celebration of Flight into a Celebration of my Mom.
We perform tomorrow April 7, Sunday at 4:00 at the RISD auditorium. Hope to see you there. We have brought the whole show inside adding lights and a whole new score.
Sunday's show was developed as a prayer for my mom, that's the only way it could be worked on. Thank you universe for allowing me the time & space to do this work, it is my process to understand these life challenges.
