Ostrich hens do not bury their heads in the sand to avoid conflict.
Far from it. They dig nests in the ground to provide a safe place for their eggs.
When they are seen with their heads in the sand they are in fact turning the eggs to create equal and safe incubation for each one.
My head is in the sand (a place of equality and safety) as I ponder the ghastly and horrid U.S.Senate vote today to confirm Brett Kavanaugh as a Justice on the Supreme Court.
What did I find in that sand? I found a place to centre my heart and soul.
It's from a bit of Christian scripture from Paul's letter to the small church in Phillippi.
As a would be Christian I try to find the centre of of my heart and soul in these words which have been with me all day), (from the King James/Authorised version as I learned it all those many years ago in Sunday School).
