Cicero Gratitude Message

I did this as an illustrated thought of the week as posted to my Tidbits from Tucson blog. I include it there so as to reference the quote. I will use it for a Thanksgiving card design.
This may seem to be an overstatement, but it works for me as my interpretation of Genisis is that God gave us a perfect universe and we said, "No thanks, I can do better." The story is not just about the creation of this planet, but of the cosmic creation as a whole, and ingratitude was the original sin. God is patiently waiting for us to realize that we can't do better, but we steam on with more and more extemes in our attempts to prove we can.
