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

6.11.2012... half cloud cover, slight wind

Yesterday the wind ramped up to over 30 miles an hour and stayed there all day. The house rattled and moaned and we turned the heat on. Robins braved the yard facing windward with small feathers ruffling out of place. In the evening the deer collected under the golden willows outside our kitchen window and feasted on fresh leaves from downed branches. They are hunter grazers, knowing how to read the signs of weather and good fortune. Teilhard de Chardin, the French paleontologist, is quoted by Dillard. “If I should loose all faith in God, I think that I should continue to believe invincibly in the world.”
