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

7.20.2012… nearly total cloud cover, no wind

I was awake briefly before sunrise, the horizon brilliant red. I sat up to see it and smiled at its proud party hue, but it was easy to lie back down and close my eyes. Yesterday was hot; with sweat running down my arms I sought the path of cooling fans and fought the urge to sleep. Even now under this high dome of clouds I could lay down in the grass and close my eyes. Sleep is often the first response to being in Two Dot, the seduction of high elevation, warm days, and an open sky.
