297. Music Inspirations in Venice
And suddenly Palma had a music inspiration.
Palmina listened to the music and put her head on Palma’s right side to be with him in their Peony Gondola.
»Oh, so beautiful, this Inspiration, Palma.
I saw the Gondola slowly moving to the Giudecca island.
And I saw the stars over Venice.
I saw Johann Sebastian Bach with his family, with his daughters.
I saw Vivaldi with the talented Orphan Girls musician, his spiritual daughters, with all their Gondolas also moving to Giudecca Island.
And every Gondola has a lantern to shine in the late evening in Venice.
All were happy to visit the Chinese family with their musicians«, Palmina said like dreaming,
»Exactly I had also this music visions, Palmina! We are dreaming the same dream…«
The music inspiration and the music was like that:

After that the Peony Gondola moved in the 16th century.
Palma was painting this year intensive every day on his new creations about the life of San Saba.
Palmina came in the church where Palma is now painting every day.
She has fresh breads and she has also her music instrument, her lute.
As she saw that he does not make a break to eat she wanted to take her lute to play for him, but…
In this moment she discovered a new music score which was beside Palma’s music instrument Viola da braccio on a little working table.

She took the music score and wanted to play it.
She read: »Ave Verum. Oh, it is for Choir and Organ and Instruments ad libitum.«
Palmina started to play the music score on her music instrument.
Palma stopped painting and smiled in her direction.
He realized that Palmina discovered Palma’s new music score.
Palmina played the four voices on her Lute and made soft ‚arpeggios‘ of the 4 Voices as accords like a harp.
Palma looked intensive to Palmina, he saw her playing like an angel, he saw her innocent smile, so peacefully, like the Saint Cecilia, sent by the Santa Lucia.
He saw her beautiful hairs, her cheeks, her eyes, her talented hands,…
Inside his heart he painted her, her whole body, her talented hands, her eyes, everything,…an eternal moment.
Palma heard all the voices of the angels as Palmina played his »Ave Verum« for him, here in the little Church Chiesa San Antonin, a few steps from her baker’s shop where her family house is and from where the little fine, fresh, breads are made at the ‚Campo Bandiera e Moro‘ in Venice. (A few steps from the Ospedale La Pieta where the famous music school is.)
And now the eternal smell of the fresh backed breads are in the air and Palma completely forgot that he was hungry since two hours.
»Such a beautiful Choir Compositions. It fits to every ‚Missa Presta‘ at the ‚Communio‘, isn’t it, Palma? I will ask the choir Master Claudio Monteverdi if he can perform it every morning in the San Marco Cathedral…«, Palmina said like a little sweet bird who wants to fly direct to the San Marco Cathedral and to bring the new music score to the famous Choir Master Maestro Claudio Monteverdi.Palma smiled. He was lucky that Palmina is his music inspiration, innocent white pigeon, his sweet clever yellow canary bird, his eternal Palmina Albina!«
And Palmina took now her basket with the fresh, little, fine, white breads and she lifted the basket so that Palma could sniff on them.
During this she smiled and made thin Asian- like eyes.
»Wonderful!«, Palma il Giovane said after he sniffed the fresh smell of the fresh backed breads.
She gave him one and moved her head meaning »Eat, Palma, eat it fresh and warm. Today you worked so much and hard. You are hungry,I can feel it«
Palma took it and made two parts of the warm bread and looked into Palmina’s eyes.
He gave her one half and she smiled.
Now both started to eat the bread, smiling and with much respect.
