And fill it with devils and dust

Hey, we need a logo, to be used for both the website and for the podcast. It might want to evoke, but not copy the Al-Anon logo. Or it could be something evoking serenity, like a butterfly? (Too trite? Probably!)
A background image might be nice.
What color palette do we like?
