Daily observations at or near Two Dot Spot, written by hand on the backs of postcards that record with ink and coffee a few minutes of the earth's orbit around the sun. The cards are physically mailed from Two Dot, Montana to those who have requested them...local to local. Ruth Marie Tomlinson


It has been a long time since the community put on a July 2nd dance in Two Dot, and everyone seemed to have been waiting and storing their energy for this one. At least 200 people gathered to eat and talk and dance. The residents and there holiday guests were all there and more poured in from surrounding communities bringing their own visiting relatives. Ordinary couples, who work ordinary jobs put their boots or their sneakers on and pulled out their dance steps. John and I couldn’t stop staring at sets for four feet flying in unison. We were torn between tying to figure it out by watching and letting it go on the dance floor. There was no purpose here but pleasure.
