114. The original letter of Palmina (was stolen and manipulated by the administrators and members of the dark-sugar-earth social-network)
Under the stars over Venice reflecting their bright light in the waters of the lagoon, Palma stood with his Mandolin looking from the promenade at this evening.
As he played his composition for his Palmina Palma felt that he was not alone.
He could feel that Palmina played music »together with him« his composition. He saw her smile shining into his lonely heart. There, deep in his heart, he felt a warm light.
»The light of Palmina« – Yes she is with him in this Peony hour, she send him a tender kiss on his cheeks and he could feel her.
Palmina looked again along the horizon of the sea and the air has now a completely other smell. She smiled looking to the stars, thinking on her Giacomo Palma il Giovane. Still she is holding her Pipa-Lute sitting on the big Royal Chinese Ship. The ships from China are very big because the sea is much dangerous then the Adriatic Sea here in Europe.
Palmina felt very secure on that big Chinese Chip.
But she smiled seeing Palma with her heart. And Palma smiled seeing Palmina with his heart now at 11 p.m. (23 h).
Venice was quite, and the people and musicians on the ship from Venice are now sleeping.
Only a Pigeon sat on the wood of the ship -a Byzantine Pigeon made soft with a high voice: „Groo, Grooooo, Grooooooo“
Palmina looked at her and smiled.
* * *
As Palma and Palmina saw this tender dreaming-Vision in their Peony Gondola Palma kissed Palmina softly.
»What a remembering…«
»What a unique China-Concert-Tour…«
»YES, my Master…«
»Palmina, did I tell you what happened in Venice as you were on concert Tour…?«
Palmina looked surprised: »No, tell me…«
And they saw this in their Peony Vision:

On one of these lonely evenings, Palma went along the promenade after he ate an Italian Pizza at the »Campo Bandiera e Moro«, and went directly to the Dogans’s Palace.
Palma was invited to listen an official concert.
Palma was not sure what today will be played without Palmina.
As the concert started there came a lady with a Lute in a golden metallic cloth.
All the people of Venice were wondering.
»Palmina is not playing this concert?….«, some people ask.
There was a while of whispering in the hall.
The conductor had problems to start the concert, because of the noise of the whispering and wondering and asking audience.
»Palmina is the best Lute player and she is now not here. Why is an other Lute player playing instead of her…?«, a fine lady was asking.
Mihaela asked: »What happened? The first soloist position belongs to Palmina! Palma?..Did they expect that Palmina comes not back from China?«
Palma was shocked.
Beside him a pair whispered »Look,!… The lady with the golden cloth has a father which is member of the Church of Security. All in Venice are saying he pays the high costs of the membership and then the church does not steal their letters…«
»Really? They are members of the forbidden criminal network of Mr.Cambridge??…«
»She plays instead of Palmina here. Her 1st lute position is only for the best lute player of the Republic of Venice – the mighty R.O.V.«
Palma was sad to see an other first lute soloist.
»Her father is very rich and the Church of Security takes a lot of money to organize intrigues…«
»Palmina is our best lute player!!! We want to hear Palmina!!!….«
»She is the best lute soloist…«
»What is here going on…???«
Palma and Michaela were so sad that Palmina is not here.
At the little break of the concert Palma and Mihaela and a lot of Venetian »Palmina-fans« leaved decently the concert and were disappointed that a member of the Church of Security did pay for that expensive concert.
Palma and Mihaela went slowly the same streets Palma often went with Palmina to the »Campo San Provolo« where Palma is living and Mihaela is living in the little house straight ahead.
»Don’t be sad, Palma. Palmina will be soon back to Venice, it is such a deep love which connects you both, don’t forget that.«, Mihaela said to his Cousin.
* * *
This night Palma dreamed from a letter which Palmina wrote as she arrived the far-east island.
Yes, this letter Palmina wrote really, but the Church of Security stole it from Palma’s letter box. It was the brother of the lute player with the golden cloth.
And the text of the stolen letter was like this:
»China, Kingdom of Tungning, 1581 –
I write you from my Concert-Tour here in China from the Kingdom of Tungning.
It is a beautiful island here. Much sun, and the temperature is quite warmer as in Venice.
It happens all like you dreamed once in the night.
Daily I see 6000 pigeons flying near to me, it looks so beautiful.
The Chinese ship brought us to this Chinese Kingdom south-west-part of the little island.
The European gave that island the name ‚beautiful‘ and the Chinese gave them the name ‚East Peace‘ 東寧 and the indigenous have their own name of it.
They all liked your composition very much and are very thankful for you paintings.
Especially Princess Lin liked the copy of your painting »Virgin with child and Saints« *)
It looks so European-Asian…
*) picture of »Virgin with Child and Saints« by Palma il Giovane
Every day I have a performance with your compositions here on that island.
We travelled several times around the island.
Tomorrow I will have the possibility to warn the last members of the Ming Dynasty that 1683 will be a dangerous year and they should now come back in a few months with us to Venice to save their live.
I hope I am diplomatic enough and find the right words – I have to be careful…
I will ask princess Lin to translate into Chinese Language and into the 26 languages of the indigenous people here on the island. They should also be warned about the year 1683 to save their culture.
I have now a little bit time to play all your compositions you sent me via our Peony-Gondola. And you will hear them as music transmitted in Venice.
I don’t know how this music transmission will work, but if it works I will play for the poor women of the »Ospedale« at the Jesuits in Venice now every day at the time of the daily concert in Venice in your local time-zone time.
I am with my thoughts and music playing with you, my Palma and with the poor women of the »Ospedale«.
I am not forgetting you, my Palma. I have much career success here on that island.
But I miss you and I always think on you, and your artworks and your compositions.
I love you so much.
The ship came so early, as we wanted to marry, you and me.
We are connected with our hearts every day.
As we met and spoke in Venice for 8 minutes, my heart did find your heart – It was as if we are already married with our hearts.
So please wait for me. The two recent concerts are taking my time a little bit longer as expected on that island.
I hope my letter comes secure to Venice.
The contact between this Kingdom and Venice is very good. So they bring personally the letter with a ship to Venice, they guaranteed me (Royal Postal Ship).
Oh, I should not forget you to write about the encounter with the »Cantico delle Creature« with the indigenous cultures and the Ming Dynasty.
I explained to the 26 representative of their 26 indigenous cultures about the »Cantico delle Creature«.
They wondered that this text was written by an European.
They say that this words of the »Cantico delle Creature« with its ANCIENT NATURE-IMAGES, like –
BROTHER WIND ,
SISTER MOTHER EARTH,
SISTER CORPORAL DEATH
– are the same principles the most indigenous traditions are believing in.
Princess Lin translate the old Italian text into the 26 languages *) and they were thankful to get this peace message of the »Canticle of Brother Sun«.
With this text, they hope, they can keep their traditions, the »Cantico delle Creature« in old-italian original text, as bridge between the two traditions, and they are protected by massive colonisation by the European and Chinese Cultures.
They say if this text was given also to the indigenous people of America the catholic church would never try to destroy indigenous traditions so brutally, because »SISTER MOTHER EARTH« and so forth are the same principles all indigenous people in the world are believing and respecting.
It was interesting that our translation, you and Princess Lin made in Venice into Chinese Language is also accepted in the Kingdom of Tungning.
The Chinese People from the Kingdom wondered that this text has so much similarities to their old 8 IMAGES of the I-GING *) Text in Asian traditions –
– which is known as living tradition in Daoism, Confucianist and Buddhist tradition at old Ming dynasty and in India.
They wondered also that this text is coming from an European writer, inspired by the Psalm 104, the »Creation Psalm«.
Maybe this text has rood of an old tradition which was told into all cultures of the world, Indigenous, European, Asian, Egyptian and so on.*)
The Indigenous people hope that this text of the »Cantico delle Creature« will help that not the same thinks happen in the future to them like in America to the indigenous people.
It is also a much smaller island and the problems could really be managed in a creative peaceful and respectful way to keep all traditions – to keep in Dialogue.
So I wrote you so long now, my Palma, my painter, my composer and deep and old love.
I hope to be soon with you again together in Venice.
Your you deeply loving Palmina Albina, soon your Palmina Negretti-Albina or Palmina Albina-Negretti.
