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


Half the cottonwood lies across the schoolhouse yard. It is not just a limb, its stout girth too much for any lightweight chainsaw we might use. The tree’s upright half is leafed out in deep green, the fallen half is trying hard, but only producing small light leaves. The trunk is still attached and arches beautifully, high enough to walk underneath. I want to leave it where it is, allowing the reverberation of the fall to continue.
