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


Back to the schoolhouse and my work and my reading. Evelyn Cameron’s biographer speculated that the “act of inscribing the concrete details of each day with in the confines of the page” was not only a source of satisfaction and comfort to Cameron, but was a way of giving shape and meaning to her days. Part of that process was recording the weather everyday. Lucey, the biographer, points out that weather was the single most influential factor in historic Montana. I’d say it still is. The beat of thunder and threat of rain is dictating what I am doing at this very moment.
