When creating this blog, I knew its title would have to be not only indicative of what I write about, but of who I am as a person.
So what does etched in tin mean?
In The Wizard of Oz, the Tin Man was, well, made of tin. He went on an adventure with Dorothy and her friends as moral support as well as to find a heart of his very own. And as we found out, he was full of love-- he had had a heart all along.
He wore his heart on his (shining, sheet metal) sleeve. And so do I. My passions and affections are on proud display. My words are poetry etched in tin.
