Leap of Faith


I saw a guy on the news tonight named Steve Carse. Steve used to work for the now infamous AIG. He was a product analyst and said that he spent his days looking at spreadsheets. In the AIG bloodbath Steve lost his job. He said that he thought about it and decided that he did not want to look for another job in the corporate sector. Instead he decided to start his own business selling gourmet popsicles.

He sells his popsicles out of a cart on a street corner in Atlanta. He sells such flavors as pineapple-blood orange, mango-habenero, tangerine-rosemary, chocolate-sea salt and mango-chili. The pops are such a big hit that a store is soon to follow. One man interviewed at the cart said that he liked Steve’s story and always tries to support start-up businesses. Steve says that he is truly happy creating new flavors and making the pops from scratch.

Food for thought! (ok I couldn’t resist)

    No One

    by Aly and AJ [come to mind]

    I am moving through the crowd
    Trying to find myself
    Feel like a guitar thats never played
    Will someone strum away

    [chorus]
    And I ask myself
    Who do I wanna be
    Do I wanna throw away the key
    And invent a whole new me
    And I tell myself
    No one,no one
    Don’t wanna be
    No one,but me

    You are moving though the crowd
    Trying to find yourself
    Feeling like a doll left on the shelf
    Will someone take you down

    [chorus]
    And you ask yourself
    Who do I wanna be
    Do I wanna throw away the key
    And invent a whole new me
    Gotta tell yourself
    No one,no one
    Don’t wanna be
    No one,but me

    Your life plays out on the shadows of the wall
    You turn the light on to erase it all
    You wonder what its like to not feel worthless
    So open all the blinds and all the curtains

    No one,no one
    Don’t wanna be
    No one,but me

    We are moving through the crowd

    “Unwritten”

    I am unwritten, can’t read my mind, I’m undefined
    I’m just beginning, the pen’s in my hand, ending unplanned

    Staring at the blank page before you
    Open up the dirty window
    Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

    Reaching for something in the distance
    So close you can almost taste it
    Release your inhibitions
    Feel the rain on your skin
    No one else can feel it for you
    Only you can let it in
    No one else, no one else
    Can speak the words on your lips
    Drench yourself in words unspoken
    Live your life with arms wide open
    Today is where your book begins
    The rest is still unwritten

    Oh, oh, oh

    I break tradition, sometimes my tries, are outside the lines
    We’ve been conditioned to not make mistakes, but I can’t live that way

    Staring at the blank page before you
    Open up the dirty window
    Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

    Reaching for something in the distance
    So close you can almost taste it
    Release your inhibitions
    Feel the rain on your skin
    No one else can feel it for you
    Only you can let it in
    No one else, no one else
    Can speak the words on your lips
    Drench yourself in words unspoken
    Live your life with arms wide open
    Today is where your book begins

    Feel the rain on your skin
    No one else can feel it for you
    Only you can let it in
    No one else, no one else
    Can speak the words on your lips
    Drench yourself in words unspoken
    Live your life with arms wide open
    Today is where your book begins
    The rest is still unwritten

    Staring at the blank page before you
    Open up the dirty window
    Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

    Reaching for something in the distance
    So close you can almost taste it
    Release your inhibitions
    Feel the rain on your skin
    No one else can feel it for you
    Only you can let it in
    No one else, no one else
    Can speak the words on your lips
    Drench yourself in words unspoken
    Live your life with arms wide open
    Today is where your book begins

    Feel the rain on your skin
    No one else can feel it for you
    Only you can let it in
    No one else, no one else
    Can speak the words on your lips
    Drench yourself in words unspoken
    Live your life with arms wide open
    Today is where your book begins
    The rest is still unwritten
    The rest is still unwritten
    The rest is still unwritten

    Oh, yeah, yeah
