possible new header?

What do you think??
I photoshopped it a bit and made the clouds all swirly and whimsical looking. I don't know if I should change the name of my blog to Concerto for Thought or not. I kind of like it, since I play cello and all, but
anyways... tell me what you think!
Should I change my banner, blog name?
