How to prepare the turkey: - Approach the turkey calmly and STEADILY. Speak gently and frankly about your intentions. - Sit quietly and listen to the turkey. You might hear something you hadn’t considered yet. Be prepared to alter your plans. - Don’t push the discussion to hard. Take a break and arrange a further meeting - perhaps in a small café; somewhere cheery and relaxed. - Stroll together: along a beach, through a park, down a cobbled lane. Continue to talk and listen - a strolling conversation is more real; it has a special dignity; it has a poetic outcome. - Sit side by side and watch the sun set. Watch the stars come out. Travel together and tell each other of your dreams. Open up your hearts and take comfort in being together. - You will not have Christmas dinner but so what, - you will have peace, divine fellowship and most importantly, a feathered friend. Michael Leunig is an Australian cartoonist, writer, painter, philosopher and poet. His commentary on political, cultural and emotional life spans more than fifty years and has often explored the idea of an innocent and sacred personal world. The fragile ecosystem of human nature and its relationship to the wider natural world is a related and recurrent theme. His newspaper work appears regularly in the Melbourne Age and the Sydney Morning Herald. He describes his approach as regressive, humorous, messy, mystical, primal and vaudevillian - producing work which is open to many interpretations and has been widely adapted in education, music, theatre, psychotherapy and spiritual life. Card measures 12.5 x 17.5 cm & is blank inside. Envelope included.
