Marque Mathias Jensen.
I would have to say the last 25 years have transformed my life in a way that most folks my age don’t have the chance of knowing.
Growing up on the prairie of north east Iowa was a great foundation – open space – hard work – family – respect – prepared me in a strange way to be an urban boy.
You know the saying – “you can take the boy out of the farm – but you can never take the farm out of the boy…” People sometime think I proved the exception to that rule. Maybe so, but in another way it still is true, I just find and resonate with the rural essence that is part of the urban landscape.
Urban and rural folks always seem to me to be way more similar than the strange breed of “sub-urban” There are rules of engagement and respect that are true in the ‘hood and on the farm, this was my starting point when I first came to North Minneapolis over 25 years ago.
With this perspective, instilled in me by hundreds of relationships, I write, teach, and live. I would love to share with you these experiences, the insight others have allowed me to see, as I believe they hold the keys to BECOMING BELOVED COMMUNITY.
