In the preamble of the Constitution, we are told that we are constantly moving toward a more perfect union. And while people in every age think they're living in a time of transition, ours truly is an age of transition when it comes to the rights of gay Americans.

Greetings from Germany! I'm in Munich for the launch of The Huffington Post Deutschland. We are delighted to be partnering with Hubert Burda Media's Tomorrow Focus, one of Germany's fastest-growing digital media companies.

We will be relentlessly covering politics and news at a very fascinating moment in German history, as well as putting a spotlight on how Germans of all generations are dealing with the Third Metric, which is what we call redefining success beyond the first two metrics of money and power to include well-being, wisdom, wonder, compassion and giving. After all, Germans came up with the fabulous concept of Gemütlichkeit, which captures a state of coziness, intimacy and an unhurried tempo that we so desperately need in modern life.
