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

8.9.2012… half clouds, no wind

The sun just rose over a ring of haze that circles the horizon. Fires certainly, even though I don’t smell smoke. Last night we drove home from Great Falls without seeing a single star; the familiar rendered unfamiliar without illumination. We’d eaten dinner with our Great Falls family out in Vaughn on the farm. They lost all their barns and out buildings to fire this year; every bit of machinery and family heirlooms gone. Fire is a true western outlaw.
