Paul Rardin: Bio and other works | Gary Packwood Choral Series
voicing: SATB | catalog number: SBMP 1516 | price: $2.25

The highly imaginative text defines our identities as many things, some quite whimsical. It concludes with the idea that ďwe are anything that is possible.Ē This is guaranteed to both add interest to a program, and to give the performers something to think about.

I am,
I am a blank page,
I am a scribble,
I am hope, the size of a thimble, that by little
I am the clenched fist raised high in the air,
I am the arms that open,
I am the work of art that canít be kept in a case,
I am the idealist,
I am art, I am scribble, I am fist, I am arms,
I am anything thatís possible.

I am the echo of wonder,
I am the echo of pain,
I am a story that flows between the lines,
I am the sun, I light my own sky,
I am the brush that paints my reality,
I am wonder, I am pain, I am sun, I am sky,
I am evíry opportunity
And we are all the Iís and all our eyes are open,
So itís likely whatís lighting the room in our eyes
I am the overused speakers,
I am slamming of dominoes,
I am the broken guitar strings, Still making rich sounds,
I am a sister of culture,
I am a series of truths,
I am the daughter of an upbringing,
I am something that no one else can claim,
And we are all the Iís , and all our eyes are open
so itís likely whatís lighting the room is our eyes,
And we are all the Iís
I am art, I am scribble, I am fist, I am arms,
I am hope, I am truth, I am sun, I am sky.

I am anything that is possible.
