Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_45_6fvyw.jpg

Over the last two years of making Blink of an Eye, Louise has interviewed over 70 people and counting — many of them family members and friends both close and far. In this last bonus episode of our break between seasons, you will hear from a few of Louise’s family members and friends about how Archer’s accident ricocheted out into the family and community, impacting not only the groups but each individual member. In their own voices, they explain how Archer’s incident influenced everything from their career paths to the ways they think about life. Hear about the family ties that were strengthened and challenged in this week’s bonus episode. We hope this episode helps you normalize the impact we all have on the family systems that we are all part of, individually and collectively. We are all so interconnected.

In this episode, you’ll hear the voices of:

Will Phipps

Pete Senft

Paula Senft Easton

Dewey Senft

Bonus Episode: Excerpts from Being Relational

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_42_6k2bv.jpg

At the time of Archer’s injury, Louise and Bill were tying up three years of intense writing, editing and hard work on their book Being Relational: The Seven Ways to Quality Interaction and Lasting Change. But the book’s release was anticlimactic as Louise continued to focus her attention on keeping Archer alive and his eventual transfer to the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, Georgia. In today’s bonus episode, hear exclusive excerpts from the book selected and read by Louise with some personal introductions to each. A virtual book reading with the author and now in the context of crisis, trauma and trauma healing. Take in vital learnings on relational advocacy, generosity and more!—critical skills to navigate the world today with grace and strength.

Bonus Episode: Sea of a Million Lights…Montage

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_38_9z28w.jpg

Angels have their ways of working silently and quietly to make wonderful things happen. As Archer was declining at AtlanticCare, members of the Senft family’s Baltimore community were busy in the background organizing a prayer vigil. There were candles to be gathered and lit, a singer to be found and a venue to be organized and secured. In this episode, we hear from organizers and attendees about the powerful event hosted at Friends School Baltimore in the aftermath of Archer’s injury. Hear about what it took to organize the vigil amidst Louise’s updates, and how healing it was from the inside out, for those involved. 

Voices in this episode include:

Jackson Morrill

Kerry Leikus

Cathy Lobo

Paula Senft Easton

Ned Insley

Season 2: Let‘s Pause for a Moment

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_6_9jba7.jpgSometimes when tragedy strikes someone else and it’s similar to your own trauma, it’s important to allow yourself some space. So, in this episode, Louise dedicates some time to honor a lifeguard who died in a boating accident in Cape May — where Archer was initially injured — on August 19. She takes a pause to do the real time Blink of an Eye trauma healing work with others in a community she loves, Cape May. She shares and reflects on staying aware of the first portal for trauma healing that opens and some trauma healing ways for all of us to respond to others in the first couple weeks post the traumatic event. We’ll pick up with our regular narrative next week with Episode 11.

Victoria Vox created the theme music.
