Annie Shares News Volume 2 Issue 10 October 2023
🎃 🍂 🍃
The most important announcement is we are now living in Pennsylvania. Western PA cozied up beside Pittsburgh. We found a lovely one level house. It came equipped with solar panels, three bedrooms, 1.5 baths, laundry, den, picture windows, garage and a beautiful, fenced yard. Not too much to maintain and plenty of living space.
I can’t wait to celebrate the holidays here and welcome visitors who will be able to stay in the guest room.
In writing news, Hope For the Tarnished is being narrated and it is halfway done. My second novel, Imperfections, is scheduled for a spring 2024 release.
I am looking forward to winter routines like drinking hot tea, slurping soup and cooking stew in our crock pot. And now I am also a Steelers fan. 😉
Here’s to a blessed month. Until next time.
The move has inspired me to write a few poems. Here’s one I wrote the day we moved from the apartment in New York.

An empty room
Where once life’s evidence —
the energy and the sound Saturated
Now Sparseness joins
echoes. Memory echoes
touch echoes visual echoes
Present yet empty.
