P24h
Em menos de uma semana um ciclo importante da minha vida se conclui e a minha rotina vai mudar bastante. Sinceramente esperava que a essa altura eu fosse estar triste e saudosista mas meu corpo e minha mente anseiam por essa mudança. Tamanha a ansiedade que estou com a alergia tomando conta dos meus braços e pescoço…
Ansiedade é algo sempre difícil de se controlar. E no meu caso é genético, porque todos em casa somos extremamente ansiosos. Com o passar dos anos sempre busquei controlar isso porque no meu caso sempre fez mal ao meu organismo.
Sou alérgica desde sempre e normalmente essa minha dermatite é emocional, sempre motivada pelo estresse, nervoso, cansaço e ansiedade.

Acredito que o motivo de hoje seja o cansaço e o querer de resolver e deixar minha equipe com as coisas encaminhadas e uma estrutura de trabalho que funcione.

Depois de 4 anos trabalhando na Eyeworks-Cuatro Cabezas vou deixar a casa e buscar novas experiências e crescimento profissional. Lá fiz amigos eternos, criei parceiros de trabalho, conheci pessoas incríveis,
aprendi muita coisa nova e amadureci. Não foram só maravilhas nesse tempo, na verdade foram muito perrengues, muitas madrugadas e finais de semana, diversos momentos tensos, de muita pressão, de cansaço e de correria.
Ali chorei, briguei, sorri, papeei, festejei, reclamei, resolvi e ri muito. Tantos sentimentos, histórias e momentos que vou levar comigo. Certeza que o que mais vai me faltar serão as companhias diárias regadas a papos e desabafos.
O que me consola da saudade antecipada que me bate destes é a certeza que os trabalhos vão e voltam mas as pessoas podemos carregar conosco.
A equipe que deixo, levo o orgulho de um trabalho suado e de muita dedicação. Levo os sufocos e os perigos que cada um enfrenta. E levo a alegria que sempre me motivou a cada dia. Saio com a certeza de que dei o meu melhor e que tudo só foi possível porque todos de alguma forma contribuirão. Desejo sucesso sempre e que com o novo ano tudo só melhore. Àqueles que ficam meu muito obrigado e estamos aqui pra qualquer desabafo, ajuda, cerveja e risadas!

A partir do dia 15 vou conseguir me dedicar forte aos treinos e ao planejamento para a viagem-treino de janeiro, além de muitas ideias que estão a saltitar na minha cabeça e preciso programar e organizar a vida daqui em diante.
Afinal de contas mais um ano que termina e outro que começa e a minha vida cheia de novidades!

Something slightly different…

An article published in The Guardian a few days ago about my aunt – if she is shown to be right, it would mean that I am Edvard Munch’s great-grandson… now that would be very cool!

Janet Weber, who believes she is the granddaughter of Edvard Munch

Edvard Munch was my grandfather, says Surrey-born nun

Janet Weber believes her grandmother had a fling with The Scream painter and is willing to undergo DNA tests to prove it

A British-born nun has said she is willing to undergo DNA tests to establish whether she is the grandchild of Edvard Munch.

Janet Weber believes her grandmother, Eva Mudocci, had a fling with Munch which resulted in her becoming pregnant with twins in 1908. Mudocci never told Munch and the artist, in official histories, is said to have died childless.

Weber had never publicly spoken about her possible link to the artist until recently, when she was approached more or less at the same time by a Norwegian broadcast journalist and a British PR man researching a show in Milton Keynes by the contemporary Norwegian artist Pushwagner.

A programme about the link was broadcast in Norway two weeks ago, prompting interest including a reaction from Elisabeth Munch-Ellingsen, a great-great-granddaughter of Munch’s uncle Petter Andreas Munch. She told reporters: “This is fun for us, if it’s true.”

Mudocci, born Evangeline Hope Muddock, was a talented violinist who toured Europe with her companion Bella Edwards, a pianist, giving concerts. The two women were together for 50 years but Eva gave birth to twins Isobel (Janet’s mother) and Kai in December 1908.

Mudocci first met Munch in 1903, introduced by the composer Delius when she and Edwards were living in Paris. Munch was clearly taken with her lively personality and dark beauty as he wanted to make “the perfect portrait” of her, which he arguably did in his magnificent lithograph ‘The Brooch.’

They remained friends and corresponded with each other, but the question is whether there was something more which resulted in the birth of twins in a private clinic in the Danish city of Nykøbing Falster in 1908.

The twins came to England in their mid-teens. In later life Kai, an artist who studied under Augustus John, returned to Denmark, where he became mentally unstable and was hospitalised.

Isobel, meanwhile, studied music and went on to work at the BBC. She married a Swiss banker, lived in London and had three children – Bent (now 79), Sven (who died in 2001) and Janet, now 72.

Janet was born in Caterham, Surrey, and went to the Royal Ballet school until she was 15 before studying theatre. To the horror of her parents, she became a nun and has lived for the past 40 years in Connecticut, returning to the UK about twice a year.

The question of who her mother’s real father is has been there most of her life.

“My mother never knew for certain, she never got any information from my grandmother,” said Weber. “It was a bit of an anguish to her.

“My mother would have liked to have known who her father was but at the same time it was just difficult to talk about it, there were very few people she was able to talk about it with. And in the family it was to some extent a non-subject, even though we were intrigued.”

Weber has vague childhood memories of her grandmother and visiting her house in Notting Hill. “The house seemed very dark and there were lots and lots and lots of artefacts. She and Bella were cooking something on the stove and I have memories of acrid smells and artefacts and dramatic people.”

So is it true and can it ever be proved? The question of DNA testing has been raised in the Norwegian media and Weber has said she would be willing. She says she is not seeking money but would just like to lay the story to rest.

“I would be fine to do any test – it would lay to rest whether he is or isn’t, and because I’m the last one who can tell the story, for the sake of my nephews and nieces.”
