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

7.22.2012... quarter cloud cover, slight wind

Outside alone in the early morning I heard the sandhill cranes calling for the first time since being back. I also noticed two flickers had taken up residence on the west end of the roof and I think I heard owls as they finish their night of hunting… just the first flush of settling in on my own. Yesterday I saw mourning doves in Harlo and instantly knew what they were. Was it because I was there to pay last respects to a local cowboy? The birds traverse my consciousness here in Montana.
