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

6.30.2013... no clouds, no wind, no rain

Everyone in Two Dot has been preparing for the 4th of July. The out-of-towners have come back to mow. The full-timers mow too, but they’ve been mowing...pristine grass and shortened weeds, all down to a blanket of green. And kept green this year by the generous rains. Everything is looking good. There will be dances and picnics and rodeos and parades and lots of food. Of course, there will be lots of flag flying too. We all know that means something different to everyone, and therein lies the trouble and the triumph of this nation we are celebrating.
