26 bolts of lighting and still no flame: An alphabet of the bands of my youth
by Lareese Hall
There are at least 13 ways of looking at a blackbird, and 26 letters in the alphabet. Thirteen times two. 26 Bolts of Lightning is about fantasizing, remembering, and forgetting. It is an exercise in telling a story with words standing in for images - and vice versa. It is a marker of time through both a lived and imagined life. It is about the journey, always the journey, not the destination.
