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


Tania came to Two Dot with a tiny empty locket and the hope of finding something to fit inside it. I suggested a bone as they abound in our rural world. We went to find owl pellets in an old shed where I know a great horned owl lives. We didn’t see the owl, but the pellets were all over the hood of an old Desoto that’s been parked there for decades. Later we picked apart the pellets at the school house, analyzing owl diet like two elementary students. Tania found her bones…little femurs less than a quarter of an inch long. They rest in her locket, a tiny reminder of Two Dot.
