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


Ten days, one after the other, with morning wakings and observations assessing what might shape the day. The luxury of stillness is a retreat from over stimulation. This quietness serves such a different purpose for me in this 21st century than I suspect it did for previous inhabitants. People came to Montana looking or something they didn't have: food, land, opportunity, a way to survive, and/or freedom from something. And, as with most searching, the unexpected was often found. Was quietness and solitude part of the bargain?
