Bonus: A Conversation with James, Danny, and Parker


In this bonus episode, you’ll hear the story of Archer’s accident from the perspective of three of his friends who were right there with him in Cape May: James Schmucker, Danny Giannascoli, and Parker Mitchell. James was the one to pull Archer out of the water, Danny was on the beach, and Parker was visiting from Baltimore that week. They reflect on the moments when they first realized something was wrong, the call to beach patrol, and the rescue efforts and aftermath on the beach and in Cape May.

James, Danny, and Parker share their memories of that day, including the moments when they first realized something was wrong and the rescue that followed, as well as their memories with Archer throughout high school, and their reflections on how Archer’s accident has impacted their lives.

Episode 8: Archer’s Tree Weeps Too: She Knows

Blink of an Eye Episode 8: Archer's Tree Weeps, She Knows

Sweet but painful visuals as Louise looked around the house where a lacrosse stick, a razor, even a tree reminded her of the past, how it was, and the now. This tree that Archer grew up with “Archer’s tree” as they called her was the only tree in the area with leaves falling. It was as if she knew what had happened to Archer. As Louise surveyed the house, and the yard, she was bombarded by not only those details, but of everyday skills and tasks that we take for granted. Do you believe your emotions are the pathway healing? Louise does and invites us to love deeply. She also makes promises to God, the Divine, that she, Louise, will experience daily life as precious.
