So Easy to Get Lost

It is so easy to get lost in the tumble of days produced when a Pandemic seizes the world. Saturday? Thursday? The usual timetable gets thrown aside and the rhythms of your life are upended. The day ends, you watch the glow of sun recede and you’re embarrassed that you have little to show in terms of productivity.

But then #something very ordinary happens, and you remember what it is like to have a method and a madness to your day. Our garage door broke, irretrievably broken, the steel facing of the door ripped away as the bolts no longer held…what a mess.

So now, you are pressed into action. make the calls, get the estimates, examine the options!

Pick a window, any window

Taking breaks from the garden play and chores, we hopped aboard the golf cart to see what our neighbors had chosen for garage doors.

Carriage door design
Carriage door with windows
Not a carriage door and different windows
Similar and stately
What about a black garage door?
Or three black garage doors?
Dark doors with cascading vines?
Carriage door again, but with extreme hardware
Carriage door with a happy moustache feel
Speaking of happy!
Carriage garage door, plain and simple
Love the doors, but not suitable for our house

Apparently a broken garage door requires an essential service, so we now have been stirred from our stupor of days. Try not to lose your way forward. We will don our masks, and stand at a distance, and try to get this done. Slowly, ever so slowly, the world will try to defeat this virus and get back to some sense of normalcy. We can hope we have all learned something…how to be quiet, how to be still, and yet we will continue to have to deal with broken doors….

  1. Your neighbors have very good taste with lots of options in garage doors. We had our electric gate break and a sprinkler leak, but were able to get them fixed during this time.
