Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_9_8l87q.jpgWhere were you the moment you realized life just changed in the blink of an eye?

In this BONUS episode of Blink of an Eye, we hear from Louise’s community members in their own words about the moment they heard the news about Archer’s catastrophic injury. You’ll listen to interview excerpts from family members like Paula Senft Easton, Louise’s daughter, Will Phipps, Louise’s brother, about the moment they received the stark news. And you’ll hear from Archer’s high school friends and other members of the extended Baltimore community who share over five years later eerie memories of where they were, whom they were with, and what they did when they heard the news they will never forget that changed not just the Senft’s lives but their lives too. These voices might resonate for you too about a day you’ll never forget when your life changed in the blink of an eye. We are all so interconnected.

Season 2: Episode 21: Radical Inclusion

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_29_8ch1x.jpg

Back to Baltimore. Back to school. Back to life outside of the ICU  — if only for a minute. While Billy stayed with Archer back at AtlantiCare for a few days, Louise turned her attention towards her other kids: two starting new semesters at college, one starting seventh grade. How do families and children transition through trauma and loss?  Join Louise as she opines about the internal struggles and the internal and external supports, plus a visit by angels.  We all develop patterns we learned in childhood to survive and thrive, and they surface again and again in crisis.   

In this episode, you will hear excerpts from interviews with:

Paula Senft Easton, Louise’s eldest child, was present for the Family Meeting in Baltimore before the other kids started their school years. She and Louise speak about how the family meeting went and the balance family members had to strike with their attention as the school year began. 

Elizabeth and Ken Rice, longtime neighbors of the Senft family in Baltimore, who helped tend to the home as the family was away in Atlantic City and Cape May while Archer was in the ICU. Louise spoke with the couple about the transition from summer to fall routines amidst all the chaos and how important it is to ask for help and help others.
