Artful dispatches from the places where we find ourselves
Ben Brazil lives in Richmond, Indiana, at the margin between Indiana's central plains and southern hills. A lifelong Southerner, he moved to Richmond in 2013 to become director of the Ministry of Writing Program at the Earlham School of Religion (a little Quaker seminary at the edge of Earlham college). A former travel writer, Ben's work took him to the places he had dreamed of as a child--especially the Andes mountains, which he has explored from Colombia to Tierra del Fuego. He continues to marvel that he likes--actually, really likes--the little Midwestern town where he lives now. If you're thinking of moving here, he recommends exploring it by bike.
