Quantum physics tells us time and space are illusions, that our minds are constructing this world. Still we keep to our stories of the past, and here is mine in a nutshell: Grew up in Switzerland, married and moved to the US where I raised 4 kids, "unschooling" them preschool through highschool, "unschooling" myself to become antiquarian bookseller and farmer. Always loved self-sufficiency, to grow our own food, to bake our own bread, etc. Moved back to Switzerland 3 years ago. Got into gingerbread houses last X-mas, looked for new decorating techniques, found Julia Usher's videos, and the rest is not so much history. Cookie decoration for me is a wonderful way to meditate. Just love to be here where everybody is brimming with creativity .
