About the Time magazine cover story

A much-ballyhoo’ed issue of Time magazine hit the newsstands today.  By “much-ballyhoo’ed,” I mean they did a lot of advance PR for it among LGBT folks online (sample size of one: this reporter received an email).  By “hit the newsstands,” I mean, some folks are getting it in print today, others will see it in a crinkly, tattered version in their doctor’s office next week or the week after.  The rest of us will be not only reading the cover story online but absorbing the meta-story around it.

My niece turned 11 the other day. We had a “village” dinner tonight, village meaning all three households in our little cohousing community (four kids and five adults among us, ranging from six to 50). The feast, which the culinarily precocious birthday girl had largely conceived of and executed (with loving sous-cheffery from her dad and mom) concluded with a sparkler-fest in the back yard.

The littlest kid, my son, decided he really didn’t want to hold a quasi-exploding chopstick-sized wand, but everyone else had a blast with them, each very much in their own, unique way.
