From Australian country towns, to schools in Ireland and cities across the US, the Catholic Church has faced an avalanche of child sexual abuse accusations in the last few decades. Recent high-profile cases and harrowing testimony given to public inquiries have kept the issue in the headlines. Meanwhile alleged cover-ups continue to dog the Church, and victims groups say the Vatican has not done nearly enough to right its wrongs.

Thank you very much, Aimee. Just trying to express something I'm concerned about in a simplified way. Life is much more than just pictures of pretty flowers and cute little puppies. But apparently I'm losing a few Watchers each time I post something controversial like this, but that only tells me that I'm doing something meaningful. Food for thoughts, if you will ;)

Hope life has become a little calmer at your place now that the holidays are over :)

Yeah, I totally agree with you. I love being in nature and witnessing beautiful things, but they're not the images I feel most compelled to make. Cute and pretty things bore me.  I can't really say family life is calmer, but i]life has been quite interesting this past week. My in laws flew the whole family to Florida and got us a place to stay for 9 days. Florida is a strange place indeed. There's something about travelling that makes you notice odd things everywhere. Happy New Year!
