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

7.16.2013… few clouds, moderate wind, no rain

I haven’t watched the ball of sun break the horizon in a while. It is always shocking how quickly the sun appears to climb at the horizon’s edge; and how powerful and blinding the light is coming through the earth’s atmosphere. I chose to remain horizontal a bit longer letting the light soak into my skin and penetrate my eyelids. Later the sun was veiled and shadows soft, so I was grateful for having witnessed its rising.
