Green is the New Black

The past Friday, March 13th and Saturday, March 14th, Carbondale Community Arts and Humanities (CCAH) produced their 7th Annual Green is the New Black Fashion Show.  Their theme this year was: Underground.

There’s something wonderful about watching a cattle drive.   The steam of each breath the cowboys and their horses take.  The cattle dogs running back and forth to keep the cattle in line, biting at their heels when they delay or wander in the wrong direction, the quick look up to one of the hands for approval  and then off they go again.  …
