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

6.8.2013… half cloud cover, moderate wind, slight rain

At 6 exactly my room lit up with the brilliant sideways light that only comes from under a hood of dark clouds. The sun slipped through an open sliver at the horizon, everything above polished purple blue. The light is clear, like water and diamonds, like crackling cellophane wadded and shimmering. I compulsively grabbed my camera and clicked photos all the way around the schoolhouse. Thankfully no one was out to see me in my pajamas and wild hair.
