Somewhere in an old notebook of mine is a handwritten recipe describing all the components and rituals —and for all I recall, incantations— required to make some downright magical .

Happy belated National Coming Out Day (hrc.org/resources/national-com )! Thanks to everyone who came out (rucomingout.com/).

T minus one hour before the parade, and I’m holding down my group’s staging area by myself because —through a series of uncontrollable last-minute events— I find myself playing the role of “responsible adult” today.
