local to local

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

8.5.2012... few clouds, no wind

We were at the Bonanza Creek Ranch last night having dinner with a book group. They'd invited the author of a murder mystery titled Ride the Jawbone. It was a privilege to be included as we are not part of the book club and these are people who easily call themselves local. Jim Moore, who wrote the book, is from the oldest family of settlers in the area. The Voldseths, who were our hosts, are also one of the oldest families. Regardless, we were made more than welcome. We may never be truly local, but I've come to understand that does not mean we will be excluded.
