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

6.30.2012... cloudless, windless

I was awake in the night and lay still looking out my window. Its rectangle perfectly frames a black pool of stars. At night they seem so close, so available; nothing between the heavens and me. Such is the pity of sleeping too soundly, of sleeping in a darkened room, of pervasive light pollution; all of it interfering with bare faced exposure to star light.
