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


It was getting pretty warm, but the mosquitoes were not out yet so I sat outside a little longer. I had chosen the protected east side of the schoolhouse earlier when it had been cooler, willing to sit amongst the buzz of flies who also favor that still location.  They are constant, rather like the sawing of some avant garde violin piece, but they are also the sound of summer. The meadowlarks and Sandhill cranes add to that bright outdoor composition, as do the complaints of the neighbor’s beagle and the ardent mooing of the cows in the field across the  road.
