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


Camped in a dry field on Jackson’s ranch with hundreds, if not thousands, of others for the Red Ants Music Festival. There has been wind, and sun, and heat, and dust, but most of all music. The Wailin’ Jennys kept their harmonies tight. Corb Lund sang ranching, drinking, and Canadian good will. Amy Helm did her father proud. And Robert Earl Keen brought Texas to Montana tying the knot. With legs aching, I’ve pounded out time in the dirt and sung along on songs I know and others I don’t. Today's clouded up a bit. It doesn’t look threatening and may keep the heat down, but won't dampen spirits.
