Message from Mark Safford

The Art Sled Rally continues to feed a place inside me that longs for transcendent visual spectacle and collective human experience of joy. I am fortunate to be in this city and at this time with these people.

It also gives me great hope that such events are happening all over the world, as it is this medicine that celebrates our deeply personal capacity for actualization of dream, courage in the decent, and being, regardless of success or failure.

I am appreciative of all the energies, commitment and care that go into making such an event. I hope that all who enjoyed themselves at the event will help to support it in some way. I found that a hot egg sandwich before, enhanced the event.

Thank you Nick, thank you Shelley, thank you Julian, thank you Brent, thank you Leigh, thank you Xena, and Ethan, thank you Chris, thank you Peter, thank you John, and Micheal, and Sue, and Dave, and Krista, and Ryan, and Loren and Lisa, all the sponsors large and small you have brought good medicine to this winter.
