flowers to calm the nerves

I took a walk yesterday in the early evening. I had just heard of the Santa Barbara shooting and followed some of the early discussions about it online, and just when I thought my head and my heart might just explode I grabbed my camera and walked out the door. I've continued following the story since then, along with the #YesAllWomen hashtag, and I'm still furious and so sad about what happened, and the larger pattern of violence against women that this act is just one part of, but the walk did help calm my nerves somewhat. And, I got some pretty pictures of spring flowers and dandelions. So there's that.
