Hi, I’m Anna

I am a writer and journalist. I have always been fascinated by different people’s philosophies, spirituality, beliefs and lack of belief. I love listening to friends’ and strangers’ views of the world and can do so for hours.

One of the greatest compliments anyone has given me is that I listen without judgement, and that will hear out any idea (within reason!)

I am agnostic and I find myself wavering between feeling spiritual and sometimes just not. I do not have faith, however much I have wanted it over the years. I do, however, believe that there might be a God or spiritual life force.

I love this quote from Hamlet and identify with it: ‘There are more things in heaven and earth, Horacio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.’ I don’t think that science holds all the answers and there is certainly more to discover.

As well as being agnostic, I am Jewish which for me means being part of a shared culture and community which has stretched back thousands of years.

I very much want this blog to allow me to explore and share my personal thoughts, as well as what I learn from others. This is also very much a work in progress and I am really looking forward to learning about different belief systems and cultures.

As this blog grows, I hope to interview different people about their outlooks in life, so please do get in touch if you would like to talk to me about your beliefs or philosophy.

Thank you for reading!
