I think this is a pretty cool concept, I like it a lot! I like the link
to Gaia & nature.... I think nature-themed backgrounds are always nice
since computers tend to trap us indoors for long time periods and
neglect the outdoors.  :) I think it could also make a very nice theme
on its own without the blending into the GNOME theme, which is important
for other desktops/spins. This is great work, thanks!
