Happy Birthday to Len Burgess
As Len celebrates his 80th, let’s revisit one of his ice crystal masterpieces. Len is truly a fine artist, craftsman, musician and scholar. Above all, he is a warm and gentle soul and, happily, a good friend.

At dawn we walk through a forest of frozen firs,
their branches dipping to snag our hats and drip
ice down our backs and send chills to our toes,
with snow underfoot and shadowy woods ahead.
But, the young sun’s glow gives a sweet caress
and promises us shelter as we trudge through
this strange, mysterious and glorious world
of shadow and light, of biting cold and loving
