And they continued to see their Peony Gondola Visions:

»Vienna, 15…

Dear Palma!
We arrived now Vienna, the world city of music and culture!
How beautiful it is there!
It is a complete other world than on my island.
On Giudecca-Island in Venice there I love to live there and in Venice, but Vienna is also beautiful!
The travel from Venice to Vienna was hard.
I am not used to travel with a coach, I prefer to move with Gondolas.
(It is more soft and harmonic to move with a Gondola)

And I miss you sitting together with you in our Gondola.
But today at 23 o’clock we will meet each other and I give you this letter because it is faster to send a letter via the Peony Gondola.

And something special happened today, listen Palma:

There was a false Body-guard ho tried to pay 2000 Swiss Franken to the president of the society which is organising our concert in Vienna against international-child-prostitution.
But the President, he is not from Austria, is strong and made a criminal report to the local authorities.
The secret service of our Republic of Venice found out that this false body guard tried to steal the identity of a real body guard and he wanted to sell dark sugar to the girls of our little fine Le Zitelle Chamber Orchestra.
The police came an arrested him and all girls were happy because this body guard started to touch the girl in an un-fine and respect-less way and the girls were afraid from him because his father is a rich man, a big member of the dark sugar network administrators who steals the letters of girls and also from us.

As protest against the sabotage of our little concert in Vienna the president announced to organize a BIG CONCERT with philharmonic musicians with your »Cantico delle Creature« in a Franciscan church in Venice. It could happen that in Venice in the church chiesa dei »Frari« where the big painting of Master Titian »Assunta Maria« is and where your famous and large painting of the Saint Catarina is.
Wooo, I am so looking forward to this concert in Venice, I hope I can play your 8 Lute Soli which you dedicated to me in your »Cantico delle Creature«.

It will be a big manifest against international child prostitution! The European and Asian musicians of our Island are standing behind you, Palma!

Today we will have our first concert here in Vienna,

Looking forward to see you again on our Peony-Gondola at 23 o’clock…

with much love

your Pigeon, your inspiration,
your little canary bird,
your angel
your Saint Cecilia,
your little Pipa Princess Wang Chun Chao
your Y…ou loving Palmina«

                    * * *

Palma smiled as Palmina finished reading her short letter to Palma from Vienna.

He put his strong arm around Palmina and she gave her head on his side.

»Thank you, Palmina. Such a nice letter.
And such nice news. The false body guard is arrested…«

»…How was my day today:
Here is my letter to you, today I wrote for you:
Venice, 15…

Dear Palmina!

Today I had my teaching lessons in the gardens of the Chinese Ming-Dinasty family on Giudecca-Island.
They learn to draw and paint in European tradition. Also they are learning European music instruments, and they are very talented. Two Asian women I started to paint as Saint Women. Later I will show you the paintings. They explain me the Asian music instruments and I like the Asian music also. My painting students came also to the lesson there in the gardens.
The Asian musicians want to found a Dao-Ying-Yang-Chinese-Garden-Orchestra combined with European musicians and they are asking me to compose an Eurasian-Artwork in music like I painted the Asian women a little bit Eurasian in my paintings. You remember my painting of princess Lin…?

Today we see us in the Peony Gondola at 23 o’clock.

Your, You deeply loving
Jacopo Palma il Giovane«

»Oh, great Palma!
I have so much remembering on the »Creative Music Afternoons« at Giudecca-Island with you and your mother teaching the poor little children without parents music and the »Cantico delle Creature«.
I am so proud of you, Palma!«, Palmina said and gave Palma a tender cheek kiss on his right cheek and smiled very friendly.

»Yes, I remember the concert in late spring of the year 1594 at the Le Zitelle.
The Le Zitelle Institution at the Jesuits on Guidecca was sponsored by the famous family Loredan ¹«

»Chiesa collegata al pio luogo delle Zitelle, fondato a metà del 1500, destinato all’educazione di giovani donne povere ma molto belle per le quali la propria avvenenza poteva essere motivo di perdizione e di avvio prostituzione.«

»Le Zitelle (officially Santa Maria della Presentazione) is a church in Venice, Italy. It is part of a former complex which gave shelter to young maidens („zitelle“ in Italian) who had no dowry, and is located in the easternmost part of the Giudecca island. « – wilipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Le_Zitelle


»I remember all the girls and musicians….

There was little Irena – she learned to play the Viola by me like little Petra – and it was Irena’s inspiration to play the A-Sting and the D-String on the Viola during the »sora aqua« part of my Cantico delle Creature.
We had then the idea to let all little children play on their children-Violins (my mother organized the little-children violins for the children) only on the A-String and the D-String.

»Yes, it was a very creative afternoon at this year. We played also the beginning of the Cantico with the »ad te solo-Melody«. Yes and the very little children clapped with their hands around going in the circle and Mrs. Petja from Bulgaria helped them. She was a painting student of mine in the Titian-Art-School and painted Jesus very well. I asked her to support the La-Zitelle music-social projects because the children are poor and needy.

»Yes, she did her job very well.«, Palmina said

»And I remember Mrs. Elisabetha, also a Le Zitelle Girl….«, Palmina exited said.

Yes, she was forced by her sever father to sing in restaurants and to stay with old man in a room alone. The man wear false priest cloths to hide his identity. As Elizabetha run away, and as she escaped from her sever father, who always beat her with violence and tried to give her dark sugar, she took a Gondola to Giudecca Island at the Jesuits and asked if she can stay at the Le Zitelle for the next years not to be a child-prostitute.
Therefore she got a singer and music education and was soon a member of the Venice-Titian-Art-Gallery and could also support music-projects with her voice.

»Yes, she sung with the little girls at this Creative Music afternoon your Cantico and the »Kyrie« of your »Prager Messe«. Cardinale Carolus Boromaeo liked this music so much as he visited Venice once and held his sever speech against international child-prostitution.«

»…and I remember the girls, Manuela, who learn so good to play the Lute – my best lute – student!«, Palmina said proud.

»…Yes she is a good musician, but she also learned very good to play the Violin, and the harpsichord. I think she liked you Palma. Women can feel this…«, Palma added

»…also little Sonja, she sung very good in our children-choir and little Petra, but she was tall grown…She learned Viola da braccio from me…and little Nino – he learned Violin…So much children grew up there and also the children without parents – the Le Zitelle institution sponsored also creative music-social projects for children without parents²…«


² an institution like a modern children-village


And the Peony Gondola showed them the remembering-visions of the year 1594 at Venice.

»The children look all so happy to do this CREATIVE MUSIC AFTERNOON…«, Palmina said and hugged Palma with her left hand and Palma could feel her and was happy.

»…no wonder that the criminal organisation of the »Church of Secure Crime – CSC« or and its children-prostitution networks form the dark sugar network administrators wanted to pay over 25.000 International Dollars to destroy this Institutions with lies and intrigues and tried to sabotage of their concerts in Vienna. «, Palma said.

»I am so proud of you Palma for composing this Cantico delle Creature for children.«

And Palmina put her soft hand tender on Palma’s left hand, smiled and looked Palma into his eyes.
Palmina said »Pi-«
Palma answered »-Pa«
Now both said »Liu – to – kiss!« and kissed soft and tender on their lips and closed their eyes.
And as they did so they saw a Peony-Vision of a CREATIVE-MUSIC-AFTERNOON with children at the children Village at Vienna in exactly 400 years in the future and they say this little Peony-Vision of the »Cantico delle Creature« for Children and they saw this:

The Creative-Music-Afternoons had been organized since the 12.April of 1980 by Prof. Renate and Gerald Spitzner


Fondamenta Zitelle, Giudecca

Chiesa di Santa Maria della Presentazione “Le Zitelle”

 

»Realizzata su progetto di Andrea Palladio, gode di una delle più belle e privilegiate viste su Piazza San Marco.

Chiesa collegata al pio luogo delle Zitelle, fondato a metà del 1500, destinato all’educazione di giovani donne povere ma molto belle per le quali la propria avvenenza poteva essere motivo di perdizione e di avvio prostituzione.

Le prime quaranta “zitelle” si stabilirono nell’isola della Giudecca (nel palazzo appartenuto alla famiglia Loredan) nel 1561, riunite in comunità da alcune nobildonne veneziane su ispirazione dei padri Gesuiti. Nel 1574 fu presentato un primo progetto di costruzione del nuovo ‘collegio laico’ dove le giovani avrebbero trovato vitto, alloggio e istruzione fino al raggiungimento della maggiore età.
Il progetto palladiano

La chiesa venne edificata dopo gli anni della peste, dal 1581 al 1585, con l’assistenza dei proti Bartolomeo Manopola e Simon Sorella, per poi essere consacrata nel 1588. Nonostante la mancanza di documenti si può attribuite il progetto ad Andrea Palladio, anche se la prima pietra fu collocata in loco un anno dopo la morte del noto architetto.«

»L’interno, a pianta poligonale, è arricchito da dipinti di Jacopo Palma il Giovane (Orazione nell’orto con, ai piedi, i committenti Pasquale ed Elisabetta Foppa), di Antonio Vassillachi (San Francesco inginocchiato al cospetto della Vergine con il Bambino e il procuratore Federico Contarini) e di Francesco Bassano (Presentazione della Vergine al tempio).«

L’architettura

L’architettura si rifà alla forma del tempio votivo a pianta centrale, trasformato in fase di costruzione per rispondere all’esigenza di inglobare la chiesa entro le ali dell’ospizio. Ciò che possiamo vedere oggi è una facciata a tempio sormontata da una grande cupola affiancata da due campaniletti: la parte inferiore della facciata si apre su due piccole, mentre in quello superiore è movimentata dall’apertura dell’ampia finestra termale a semicerchio.

Uncle Villy – Back to Earth  Blog (chapter 3)

 

Posted on December 4, 2018 

[3.] Orange Light, blue flames and Organ Music

I remember at one evening as we came back from our little walk at the near wood.
We had to cross the high-way bridge to come back to the streets where all the villas are, the diplomatic district of the city.
After a while, it was going to be evening, uncle Villy, uncle Pepi, Aunt Bea, Aunt Zdenka, uncle Pavel (her husband), mum suddenly stopped, Our little dog Mischa looked up to the sky.
We all looked now up to the sky. There was a little red point.

We all knew it, this is Planet Mars.

Uncle Villy made a big and long sigh. All knew it, but nobody wanted to talk about in the public, on the streets.
Although nearly nobody was on the street…but the Mars-Story of our family is not for all to know…

Only special readers are allowed in a few decades to listen to my little remembering.

Uncle Pepi took his hand and laid his hand on his shoulder and smiled to him.

His eyes said to him wordless: »You did your best…Now they are all heroes…It is a miracle that you are today with us…we are all very thankful for that…«

Uncle Villy looked back up to Mars and made again a long sigh.

As I saw them standing there I asked suddenly in this silence:
»Ludevit will come today and show us his new paintings from Planet Mars…«

And I jumped in the air very happy trying to reach Planet Mars with my little hands as little children sometimes do.

* * *

As we came back on that evening, going down the silent, peacefull diplomat-district to our family villa, I went a little round in our garden and played cosmonaut with my children toys.

I sniffed again on our garden roses from aunt Fanny and aunt Sophie – they were botanic specialists – then I went into our house to be with our family at the dining salon.

They spoke about literature and music till Ludevit came.

* * *

Later as Ludevit was also ready with evening dinner he went up with Uncle Villy to show him his new paintings from planet Mars.

»This I like very much…«, Uncle Villy said.

picture - painting of planet Mars landscape

picture – Planet Mars painting

And they talked and talked about their new book about the Mars Mission.

I did not understand them, it was to complicate for me as a little child.
But as they spoke about three orange suns and blue flames and Organ Music on Mars I was very interested.

»And there are really 3 Orange Suns and blue flames on Mars, and, and organ music…?«

»Oh, Gerald, we are now discussing if we should write it in the book or not because some could say this is not scientific enough…«, Uncle Villy said.

»But Villy, you wrote, that as you saw the 3 suns on Mars it was like a WELCOME on MARS…«, Ludevit said as positive argument.

»Yes, we write it because we think that the reader can interprete the feelings of the astronauts by themself…It reflects also the feeling they had as they saw this miracle…«, Ludevit answered.

Villy said: »To say that the astronauts saw these 3 orange suns is for them like to be welcome on Planet Mars…«

»Ludevit, you are a space-artist and I am a space-astronomer, a scientist. We are working together to write down this story of the first men on Mars in modern history. I understand that we can not write only the scientific facts that I wrote down in these hundreds of papers I had to write down and to calculate.
There must be something which is MORE then only a daily logbook of a space astronomer, (in our story a log book of a space-doctor). Only an artist can describe how astronauts had seen the surface of our brother planet Mars…Your painting is great…
Gerald…, Ludevit paintings are amazing, Isn’t it Gerald?«

»Yes, they are looking like real photos…«

And Palmina was happy that see could see the music score from Palma il Giovane as music answer to her little composition for him.

Yes, they started a Music-Dialogue between two composers.

But Palmina also often cried because she was sad that her letters to Palma had been erased so often by unknown persons.

Will the future centuries bring better and secure ways of communications?¹

                    (to be transferred... continued)

¹ A lot of users of »Messenger« on facebook reported that there is an illegal message- and content- manipulation of private messages, especially to EU-users. (European Union) See also the »Brexit«-facebook-manipulation-scandal in these days. (To other countries the manipulation will be much easier because there are no strict laws forbidding message-manipulation till today.)

Messages do not arrive or are invisible or suddenly erased by an unknown person.

Even if you set a new password on facebook, not to allow erasing your messages to others (unknown) who have your password, the problem is not solved than you should use an other way of transmitting your messages and music-files.

Send your self recorded music not via facebook messenger, but at an other way¹ .


² Today in the 21st century there are several ways to transmit music.

In the 16th Century Palma and Palmina had the first time the Peony Gondola…

 ·168. Variation of the ‚Thinking on each other Melody‘
 

And after they heart Palma’s music answer Palmina smiled.
And how is the music score?
Can I see it?
Yes, Palmina, here it is.
And the Peony Gondola transmitted the music score and it looked like that:

picture - music score of »Variation of the 'Thinking on each other Melody'«

Palmina smiled and looked at the music score.
Then she looked into Palma’s eyes and gave the music sheet a little kiss.

»Thank you my Palma…«

                  (to be composed.....continued....)

167. Palmina’s secret composition for Palma

_ »Venice, 15..
(Love-Letter 167)

   Dear Palmina!

My heart feels lucky to think on you.
Especially now, my heart could feel and hear a little melody you composed for me.
I could feel that you send a beautiful music-message to my heart.
You are so touching deeply my heart if you play something for me. Especially your fine compositions.
I love you. I feel it, you are coming from a higher dimension to take care for my music development in my heart.
I thank you so much, my dear Pigeon,
my Saint Cecilia, my little inspiring yellow canary bird.

This inspires me to compose as little music answer to your composition –
a little variation of our »Thinking on each other – Melody«.

Our love is strong and it goes beyond all borders and problems! 🙂
There are enemies against our relation and love but love is always stronger.
Yes, we can exchange our love and music ideas here in our Peony Gondola at 11 p.m.

I am so looking forward to see you there.

I send you from my heart this music-Variation directly to your heart.
But listen good and find the melody. It is a little bit hidden. Tell me if you could find the hidden melody.

With much love

Your you loving
your deep love, your painter,
your composer

      Your Palma il Giovane,«

             * * * 

And Palmina and Palma continued to see this Peony-vision and both smiled.

Palmina hold his right hand. Yes, this could Palma feel and he smiled and was very thankful about her heartfelt thoughts.

»Palma?«

»Hm?«

»Yes, today I played an own composition for you from heart-to-heart.
Later I send you also a short message but I saw that the brother of a music colleague of our little orchestra, which father is member of the dark sugar network, did steal her letter and showed it to her father. Her father observed this poor innocent daughter through his false brother since about two years. And…he also opened YOUR LETTER box and he steal also MY letter to you, I mean your letter…he did steal YOUR letter, because you are the normal owner of my letter if it is in YOUR letter box…so this guy has stolen our letter from YOU AND ME.«

Palmina kissed Palma on his right cheek soft and tender, Palma smiled.

»Yes, Palmina! Today I could feel your positive thoughts in my heart and suddenly I composed a variation about the »Thinking on each other melody«, Palma whispered to her in her ear.

»Oh fine! Can I listen to it?…But first I play my composition for you!!!

picture – manuscript

And Palmina started to play her beautiful composition.
Palma looked at her face and he felt all her love energy.
She played although her right middle finger painted a little bit.
But her love for Palma was stronger than her pain, she really cares for him, she really loves him.

Again she looked so beautiful playing her composition for him.

Palma smiled and such moments were Palma’s most beautifull moments in his live:
That Saint Cecilia is playing for him and to hear her playing only for him.

»Thank you my angel,
thank you my pigeon,
my little yellow canary bird,
Thank you my Pipa-Princess Wang Chun Chao
Thank you my Saint Cecilia.«,
Palma said and hugged her with his heart long and deeply.

Now I show you the copy of my letter which had been stolen and erased by the brother of my music colleague from my little orchestra«.

Palma hugged her and gave her a tender cheek kiss – a tender kiss to his white Pigeon.

And Palmina read her love letter to Palma:

»Venice, 15..

Dear Palma!

My deep and only love. Today I write you a short message. I hope that this letter will not be again stolen by the members of the dark sugar earth social network.
I decided to protect your creativity with my loving heart.

Today I played my composition as music answer for you.

I am so proud that you are composing the Cantico delle Creature.
It will be a big manifest for the divine light and against the darkness of the evil child-prostitution-networks worldwide.
Everywhere were evil people try to pay a lot of money to avoid a music performance of your Cantico delle Creature there are maybe criminal persons who are in connection with the children-sellers network like the Church of Security and its dark sugar earth connections.

I love your Cantico delle Creature and thank you that you dedicated so much Lute soli for my instrument to play in this artwork and I am really proud of you.
I came into your life as I was send to help you in your difficult life – in good times and in evil times.
Day by day I feel the music-mission together with you.
Even we can not often see us, speak us, write us and be together in the Gondola in Venice we have our Peony Gondola at 23 o’clock, a present of the heaven, to stay in deep contact over big physical distances and big cultural distances – But are they big?
Yesterday I thought on you at 11 p.m. Did you feel it also?
Let’s talk about our music-ideas in the next meeting in our Peony-Gondola.

With much love

your Pigeon,
your yellow canary bird,
your Inspiration,
your personal Saint Cecilia,
Your Y…
       …ou loving Palmina«

            * * *

And Palma’s heart was so warm surrounded by her tender words.
Palma could not say any word but Palmina felt how he reacted in his heart.

And the Peony Gondola transmitted the music Palma composed about the »Thinking on each other Melody« and it was like that:

166. The Vision of the 8 mystic Saint Virgins

 166.The Vision of the 8 mystic Saint Virgins¹

And they continued to dream after their spiritual marriage and they saw 8 Saint Virgins standing along the clouds of the heaven.

The Saint Virgins looked down to the earth and observed something:

The Saint Virgin said to the other seven mystic Saint Virgins:

»Here we see there is a composer in the future in 300 or 400 years. He is composing music therapeutic and music pedagogic pieces for little children who lost their parents.
He made a big composition for these children: the »Cantico delle Creature«.
He dedicated little melodies to these poor children, which learned to play them, and he made a lot of little concerts with these children to empower them.

But the dark sugar earth network administrators don’t like these cultural activities.
They want to destroy these children projects and giving a lot of money to false priests (wearing priest cloths only without being a priest) to give this money to private persons to influence them. They want not to stop selling children for child-prostitution. They said children should not have a music therapy, a music pedagogic help and no music education. They should only be like the dark sugar network administrators wants them to have children as slaves.«

Saint Cecilia looked down to the earth and recognized that it is her deep love who is struggling and she send her music prayers for him and wanted to go down to earth to help her deep love, to help her composer.

»We have to help him that his „Cantico Delle Creature“ is not suppressed by the child-hating persons.«, St. Cecilia said.

»I send you my Saint Virgin Cecilia, the protector of musicians, of saint music and hymns, protecting the Hymn of the »Cantico delle Creature« for all time, …I send her to save the mission of your deep love and friend…«, the Saint Virgin said with her beautiful soft voice, »And Saint Lucy, you will lead him that he will find once St.Cecilia in this life…It will be difficult, but we help with all our prayers and love.«

»Look, here at the clouds of the heaven. This is you… «, Palma said and was full of luckiness.

Saint Cecilia took her Lutes and music scores and flew like an angel searching the best place to find him; to find her composer of the Sun-Hymnus CANTICO DELLE CREATURE with the 8 Images of the world’s traditions.

                 (to be continued..)

¹) 8 Saint Virgins:

1 St. Mary
2 Felicitas and 3 Perpetua
4 St. Agatha
5 St. Lucy
6 St. Agnes
7 St. Cecilia
8 St. Anastasia

(2-3)
»The two youthful heroines, (2) Felicitas and (3) Perpetua, suffered at Carthage in North Africa. They were of noble birth and well-educated. They were confined in a prison filled with darkness, heat, smoke and filth. “The day of their victory dawned,” say their Acts, “and from the prison they went forth to the amphitheatre as to Heaven, cheerful, with radiant countenances, trembling, but with joy, not with fear.” The confessors who accompanied them stepped before the judgment-seat and cried to the one seated thereon: “Now thou judgest, but soon thou wilt be judged by God.” The young women were cruelly scourged, and then cast before a wild cow; finally they were beheaded. This was in the year 202, in the persecution of the Christians under the Emperor Severus. Their feast occurs on March 7th.

(4) St. Agatha. Two cities of Sicily – Palermo and Catana -contest the honour of her
birthplace. It is certain that under the Emperor Decius, in the year 251, she bore off the crown of martyrdom at Catana. This holy virgin was renowned far and wide for her nobility and wealth, as well as for her beauty and virtue. Already in her childhood she had chosen Jesus for her spouse, and clung to Him with undivided love. Accused of being a Christian, she was dragged before the heathen judge, Quintianus. This villain endeavoured, by all manner of mean artifices, to overcome her chaste mind and her courage. But, like unto a lock in the ocean, the virgin remained unmoved and unshaken; as the dust beneath her feet, she accounted all that the world could offer.
In prison she was miraculously healed of her burning wounds by St. Peter. Afterwards the wretched tyrant gave orders that the saint, miraculously healed, be rolled on sharp potsherds and glowing coals. Again brought back to prison, the saint prayed: “Lord, Thou who hast created me and preserved me since my childhood, who hast delivered my heart from the love of the world and protected my body from perdition, who hast made me triumph over tortures and bonds, over iron and fire, I pray Thee, receive my spirit from this earth into the bosom of Thy mercy!” Thereupon she slept in the peace of the Lord, and her pure soul flew heavenward. The tomb of St. Agatha, made glorious by God with many miracles, became the refuge of the Christians, and even of the heathens. There also was kept the wonderful veil that was not burned, but only somewhat crimsoned, when the saint was thrown into the blazing fire. One year after her death, the neighboring volcano of Etna burst forth in torrents of fire, which moved toward the city of Catana, and threatened its destruction. Then the inhabitants
ran in terror to her tomb, took the veil, and held it in the direction of the stream of lava. At that very instant, it took another course toward the ocean and the city was saved. This event took place on the anniversary of the holy death of the virgin martyr, February 5, which is still observed as her feastday in the Church of God.
Consequently, St. Agatha is the much implored patroness against dangers of fire: as such she is particularly honored in the Black Forest of Germany. There her feast is made resplendent with the brightness of innumerable lights.

(5) St. Lucy suffered martyrdom about 304, in the great persecution of Diocletian
against the Christians. She came from Syracuse, was of noble lineage, and at an early age vowed perpetual chastity to the Lord. Her mother was taken ill with dysentery, and in this emergency she made a pilgrimage to the tomb of St. Agatha to implore her restoration to health. Here St. Lucy was thrown into an ecstasy, and St. Agatha appeared to her in great glory, surrounded by angels, speaking thus to her: “My sister Lucy, virgin consecrated to God, why dost thou request of me what thou thyself canst do for thy mother? Behold, thy faith hath given efficacy to the words of thy mouth, and she is now cured.” From that time Lucy sold her ornaments and her goods in order to give the proceeds to the poor and the sick. Accused of being a Christian, she appeared before the tribunal of the heathen judge, Paschasius, whereupon being commanded to offer sacrifice to the idols, she answered: “It is a pure and undefiled worship of God to console and support widows and orphans in their tribulation. This have I now done for three years, and, after offering my possessions, I shall gladly offer also myself in sacrifice.” Because she had said: “They that live chastely and devoutly are a temple of God, and the Holy Ghost dwells in them,” they wished to drag her to a brothel, but the Lord rendered her as immovable as a pillar, so that no power could thence move her. Then a funeral pyre, filled with pitch, rosin, and oil
was built around her and ignited: but the flames also left her untouched. Finally, a sword was thrust through her neck; but she continued to live until she had received the Holy Viaticum from a priest, and had consoled the Christians who were standing around, by the announcement that peace was near at hand. On the spot in which she suffered, a church was erected. Her feast is kept on December 13. “In thy patience thou didst possess thy soul, O Lucy, spouse of Christ! Thou didst despise what is of the world, and now thou art resplendent among the choirs of angels; with thy own-blood thou didst conquer the enemy!” (Antiphon of the Divine Office)

(6) St. Agnes. What is most to be admired in her: the charm of childhood, or virginal
innocence, or manly heroism? Agnes, the child of wealthy and distinguished parents, was an elect child of grace; truly responding to her name (as St. Jerome writes), her childhood passed in spotless purity and lamblike innocence (agnus = lamb). A hundred years after her death, St. Ambrose said: “Even at the present day, many Roman maidens cherish the example of St. Agnes, as though she were still dwelling and living among us, animating themselves thereby to a perpetual preservation of purity.” She gained the double crown of virginity and martyrdom at the tender age of thirteen. Asis related in the history of her life, she was, “though a child in years, yet mature in mind; a girl in stature, but a matron in spirit; beautiful in appearance and figure, but still more charming in soul by piety and modesty.” When asked in marriage, she described in animated, glorious words her espousals with the heavenly Bridegroom:
“Depart from me, thou inciter to sin, thou food of death: depart from me; for already hath another Lover possession of my heart, who far surpasseth thee in nobility, and who hath given me incomparably more beautiful presents than those which thou hast offered me. With unrivalled treasures He hath enriched me; His nobility is the highest, His power the greatest, His appearance the most beautiful, His love the sweetest. The angels serve Him; sun and moon admire His beauty; by the perfume of virtue that exhales from His person the dead are awakened; by His touch the sick are cured. He hath prepared for me His bridal-chamber, where music and song resound; for Him I preserve fidelity, to Him I give myself entirely and without reserve!” She was taken to an abode of vice, but was protected by her guardian angel, who covered and shielded her with a garment of dazzling light. She was then thrown into a burning pile; but she made the Sign of the Cross over the flames and remained unharmed. Finally, she fell under the sword of the executioner (304), and thus the tender victim hastened to the nuptials of the Divine Lamb. She was buried a short distance from the city on the Nomentan Road in the villa of her parents. Her tomb became glorious, for on the spot arises one of the loveliest and most renowned churches of Rome (S. Agnese fuori
le mura). “There annually the feast of the holy Virgin-Martyr is commemorated on the anniversary of her death (January 21).

(7) St. Cecilia. She was a maiden of noble origin. From her earliest childhood she had wholly dedicated herself to the service of God by the vow of chastity. “She carried the Gospel always in her heart and never ceased by day or by night, praying and conversing on holy subjects.” By the command of her parents, she was urged to marry a wealthy and distinguished young man named Valerian, but he was a heathen.
She consented only after receiving the assurance, through her guardian angel, that God would preserve her virginity, even after her marriage. By prayer and penance Cecilia prepared for this worldly nuptial day, and when at the banquet-feast the nuptial hymn was sung amidst the sound of musical instruments, Cecilia secretly sang in her heart to the Lord alone the hymn: “Keep Thou my heart and my body immaculate, that I may not be confounded!” And her heavenly Bridegroom sent an angel to her, who watched over the purity of her heart and body. “Like unto the wise and busy bee, Cecilia served the Lord,” and gained many souls to Him. The first among them were her husband, Valerian, and his brother, Tiburtius, who soon after obtained the crown of martyrdom. On this account, the pagan. prefect of the city, Almachius, delivered her up to be suffocated in the bathroom of her own palace. She was confined in the chamber and “the oven was heated seven times more than usual, ”but, like the youths of Babylon, she praised the Lord in the midst of the flames. The angel converted the scorching steam into a refreshing dew for her; “the fire had no power over her body, and not a hair of her head was singed, nor were her garments injured, nor had the smell of the fire reached her.” Upon this the tyrant sent the executioner to her, who struck her thrice without severing her head. For three days she continued to live. The faithful hastened to the palace. She gave to all consolation and counsel. She ordered that her house should perpetually serve as a church, and then breathed forth her angelic soul. She was laid in a coffin of cypress wood, in the same posture in which she died, and was interred in the Catacombs of St. Callistus. In the year 821, her holy body was, in a celestial vision, discovered by Paschal I, who placed it under the high altar in the Cecihian Church in Trastevere. Almost eight hundred years later (namely in 1599), Cardinal Sfondrati found the holy martyr still in precisely the same posture in which she lay there on the floor of her house. Thus she still reposes, sweet and modest, enveloped in her rich attire, and in a penitential garment, on which the glorious traces of her blood are visible. She probably died in the year 177; her feast is celebrated on November 22. St. Cecilia is honored as the patroness of Church music, as she herself was versed in music, and is said frequently to have heard celestial melodies.

(8) St. Anastasia. This holy widow and martyr is also of Roman origin. She had much to suffer from the cruelty of her pagan husband Publius. After his death, she gave herself over to practices of charity and mercy. In the persecution of Diocletian she obtained, on the day of our Lord’s Nativity, 304, the palm of martyrdom by fire. On the spot where her house stood, a church (S. Anastasia) was erected in her honor; there under the high altar rests her body. Her feast is kept on December 25. St. John, the Seer of the New Law, “saw a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations and tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and in the sight of the Lamb, clothed with white robes and palms in their bands,” and heard that “these are they who are come out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and have made them white in the blood of the Lamb” (Apoc. 7:9, 14). Of this countless multitude of bright martyrs, only a few are here mentioned in the Mass by name. They are merely those who in the principal city of Christendom were at all times held in great veneration. Here, after the male martyrs, the female martyrs also are mentioned, which is not the case in the list of the saints mentioned before the Consecration. The Church extols it as a miracle of divine power, that the Lord “should also have granted to the weaker sex the victory of martyrdom.” How perfected does not Christ’s power appear here in the most tender virgins! Their heavenly robes of glory not only shine with the splendor of an eternal brilliancy, but they are also crimsoned in their glory with the blood of a glorious sacrificial death.With the saints named and with “all the rest of the saints,” whose number and names the all-seeing God alone knows, we, poor sinners, desire to be eternally united in heaven. This petition is expressed at the beginning of the prayer, and is now at the conclusion repeated again in other words, inasmuch as we implore admittance to the community of the heavenly citizens, and for such a fellowship with them we do not rely upon our own merit to obtain, but support our request for it on the merciful indulgence of God. We do not ask for the glory of the saints by reason of our own merits, but we confide in the merciful and gracious bounty of the Lord. If we wish for the glory of the saints, we must share their labors, sufferings and combats. Through many tribulations only can we enter with all the saints into the joy of the Lord. We should, moreover, remember this when we beg for “some part and fellowship” with the Apostles and Martyrs; for if with them we suffer and die for Christ, with them also shall we be glorified.«¹

165. Palmina as Saint Cecilia

___ 165. Palmina as Saint Cecilia ___

picture 1a – Saint Cecilia with Angel

And this eternal tender soft kiss made Palma very lucky.

Suddenly the weak lantern light radiated more light then in the last hours and was very strong and shined on Palmina’s beautiful face.

Palma saw now how beautiful Palmina looked and was deeply touched and inspired.

»Palmina?…« he whispered fast.

 »Hm?«

»Can you sit down at your music table where the little table organ is?«

Palmina smiled and could feel how inspired Palma was in these minutes and sat down at her music table.

Palma put the strong shining lantern on the window to shine on the place at the music table. He could see that Palmina looked so good sitting at her little table organ and smiled looking into Palmina’s innocent eyes.

Palmina understood: Palma wants to paint her as »Saint Cecilia«.

For a moment he felt on his knees and looked up to her. He folded his hands and said silent a short prayer.
Then he kissed her talented hands.
Palmina understood wordless and smiled and she put her beautiful and talented hands carefully on the little organ and started to play a Saint Hymn of the Saint Cecilia.

Palma smiled and in his heart the sun was rising like in the morning.
He took his painting easel and painting brush, mixed fast a few colours – Palma has always some paintings utensils with him, because it could happen, suddenly, that Palmina inspires him only with her smile.
So he started to paint a new painting.

        picture 1b - detail Saint Cecilia

He painted her golden hairs.
He painted her beautiful Eurasian eyes looking as if she has it opened a little bit and closed a little bit.

    picture 2 - detail of Palmina

(This Palma knows from some Buddhist paintings of the female Guan Yin – This he learned at the Buddhist nun on Giudecca Island)
He painted her with white-orange cloth.

        picture 3 - detail organ

Palmina played wonderfully on her little organ which she normally used only for her music-lessons for the talented la Zitelle girls, here at the Jesuits.

And suddenly, as his love to Palmina was pure and innocent he was allowed to see the Angel from St. Cecilia¹ which is protecting her virginity.

picture 4 - detail Palmina and the Angel 
holding a music score of Palma il Giovane 

Beside her, right, he painted a little beautiful angel.
The angel is holding a little music score, a little Melody by Palma il Giovane. (Angels can transport music messages and are Messengers of the highest)

Palmina has now the composition by Palma learned in her heart and she could play the inspiration directly from her heart, completely by-heart.
And she played an own variation and a music ANSWER as notes for her Palma.
During Palma painted he listened to her music very interested. And he felt lucky that she is composing a beautiful music answer only for him. A secret music answer from St. Cecilia to Jacopo Palma il Giovane.

»Palmina, I did not know that you are composing also for Organ…«

And as he said that he realized that a golden light was shining around her head – The Symbol of saints – he realized that the Saint Spirit of the Saint Cecilia was moving her fingers and she seemed to play with closed eyes.
Palma felt again on his knees and prayed with tears of joy. He the famous painter and unknown composer in Venice of the 16th century, he, he has the big honour to hear the miracle music of this Western Guan Yin, the borderless compassion, the Saint Virgin, one of the mystic 8 Saint Virgins together with the Saint Virgin.
He felt blessed, if his live was only for this night with her, if his live was only to paint only this miracle painting of his Saint Cecilia, he knows now why he was born.

Dear Palmina, dear Saint Pigeon Inspiration, Dear Saint Cecilia!

I am so Thankful to know you.
I am so Thankful to have you in my heart.
I am so Thankful for the inspiring encounters with you in the present,
It opens a whole life in our hearts:

The life in the past and future.

In the Past – 400 years ago and century ago –
In the future – in 300 or 400 years and in centuries«

Palmina played like in trance.

»The Saint Spirit is leading her…the Saint Light is around her head and the angel is protecting her virginity«, Palma il Giovane thought.

Over her head he painted very secretly a golden light.

Palma also painted the Organ Pipes and the wings of the little angel.

The first time Palma painted so fast; normally this is impossible to paint such a painting in one night.

The colours are drying normally within days or weeks and you cannot paint in one night. But this night there happened a miracle and Palma felt this and Palmina felt this.«

Outside an old monk, who often has visions, heart the little organ music from Palmina’s flat and wanted to look after Palmina.
But as he stood at Palmina’s closed door he felt the warm golden light energy radiation from Palmina’s room and music. He folded his hands and made some silent prayers. Now he felt on his knees and understood that there is inside a miracle happening and the monk is not allowed to disturb the miracle.
»This is the Spirit of Saint Cecilia. I have to pray that this miracle is protected by the angels«, he whispered.

And the monk prayed on his knees the whole night without being weak or tired for a moment.

During this night Palma painted and painted and Palmina played and played. They felt that their hearts united stronger than ever, It was like a spiritual marriage, blessed by the heaven and all Saints.
Inside his heart Palmina hugged Palma with her music and Palma hugged her with his painting creativity.

Palma and Palmina had such a warm light around and in the hearts that even the night air would be cold from outside they would only feel warm radiation from their hearts.

        picture 5a - Saint Cecilia with Angel

This painting is a miracle and an image of their spiritual love.

Never Palma painted Palmina so directly and realistic – normally he always painted her in several variations as a fantasy creation – but this time it was a real image of Palmina Albina.

If you look longer at it Palmina seemed to move her thin eyes: a little bit closed – a little bit opened looking down to the keys of the little organ.

They both breathed like one soul and they loved each other spiritually leaving their bodies and uniting in an eternal dimension.

As Palma finished his painting – and outside at the window on the right side there was the heaven a little bit brighter, because in the east the sun will soon rise – Palma felt again on his knees in front of Palmina Albina.

Now the monk outside felt soft sideways on the floor and slept in peace.

Palma said: »You are my Saint Spirit Inspiration – You are the Inspiration of music, the inspiration of St. Cecilia. You ARE…«

»Pssst… Don’t say it so loud…. We both know now the secret. Master Lao and his monks and also a Jesuit Monk, which has Visions, said the same to me a few days ago…It is our deep love secret… Palma we have to be silent about this secret…«

Palma kissed again her talented hands and stood slowly up.

Then he sat on her bed, very, very tired.

Suddenly Palma felt tired sideways and soft on her bed and felt asleep in peace like the monk outside.

»Poor Palma…«, Palmina said, »He painted yesterday from the early morning till the evening in the Chiesa San Antonin and then this painting miracle during the whole night…He needs a rest.«

Palmina smiled and came and caressed his head.

Two Byzantine Pigeons came at the window and made their soft pigeon music sounds and loved each other spiritually from heart-to-heart.

Palmina looked to the two loving Pigeons at the morning window and smiled. Then she looked back to her Palma and smiled also.

Yes, Palma has fallen in love to Saint Cecilia¹, who was sent by the Saint Lucy² (they are 2 of the 8 mystic Saint Virgins) and who really loves Palma il Giovane. She cares for Palma’s spiritual development as painter and composer.
Her smile leads him step by step into the dimension of the heaven of light and love.

But both tried to keep their common secret as long as possible.

Palmina let Palma sleep in her fine little bed, the bed of a Saint. Palma smiled like being in the highest heaven.

At this slowly coming early morning Palmina started to play on her Pipa-Lute very soft and Palma could hear in his dreams all music ANSWERS Palmina was sending from her saint pure female heart to his pure male heart.

Palmina looked long at this mew fresh painted artwork.

»Hm…This is really me… The first time he painted me exactly like I am looking. It was necessary to have one or two pictures so that the world in 300 or 400 years can figure out that I really exist in Venice and how I was looking like….«, Palmina thought and played on her Lute.

»…but we have to be careful. My father has now a lot of money since the fake-priest gave him so much money to destroy the relation between me and Palma sending me always on concert tours outside of Venice…He will maybe again buy all paintings, as he did in the past, where I am painted on… He gives so much money and then he owns Palma’s painting so that no one can see the painting³…who knows? This should not happen to this miracle painting…Hm?…«


³ there is a historic report that a big beautiful painting where Palma painted Palmina was found hidden in a dark room at the backers shop.


Palmina played and thought long about their secret future in Venice.

picture 5b - complete painting of Palmina

»…Palma should ask his friend Orazio¹ to make a copy of this painting…I think he is also his scholar and student… He makes excellence copies, which looks like a real duplicate.

        picture 6 - detail original and copy 

Sure Orazio will make this copy…It is our only one chance to keep an authentic painting of me in the memory of the music history…my father tries to destroy all about me…He wants to erase me in the memory of music history… I don’t know why… But he is hardly influenced by the church of …. I mean the members of the international dark sugar earth network…
So there is hope we can keep this image for the world…«, Palmina silently thought and smiled about this solution.

She looked to Palma who seemed slowly to wake up, now the 2nd time, not in his Atelier, but in her clean and pure and fine little bed.

»My Palma….«, her heart softly said.

»…My Palmina….«, Palma’s heart answered her and she could hear it.

»…This is a very good Idea to ask Signore Orazio to paint a copy of this. He is a good friend and scholar of mine. He will take care of this painting-copy if it is necessary. Tomorrow I will ask him…

picture 7 - detail original and copy  - The Lute Player Women (Palmina)

picture 8 - detail original and copy -  The Lute Player Women (Palmina)

and I will ask him also a copy the other image with you…
A real painting of the real Saint Cecilia…«, Palma said to Palmina communicating with her heart.

Today at night as Palma painted Saint Cecilia both felt that their hearts united eternal.

    * * *

And as they saw this Peony Vision at 23 o’clock, 11 p.m. Palma’s and Palmina’s hearts where so strong connected that they felt also the same warm feelings like once at Giudecca-Island in Venice at this special evening and during this special creative and inspiring night.

     (to be connected...continued...)

During the wedding, Cecilia sat apart singing to God in her heart, and for that she was later declared the saint of musicians. When the time came for her marriage to be consummated, Cecilia told Valerian that watching over her was an angel of the Lord, who would punish him if he sexually violated her but would love him if he respected her virginity. When Valerian asked to see the angel, Cecilia replied that he could if he would go to the third milestone on the Via Appia and be baptized by Pope Urban I. After following Cecilia’s advice, he saw the angel standing beside her, crowning her with a chaplet of roses and lilies.«

164. Beautiful remembering in the Gondola in Venice

164. Beautiful remembering in the Gondola in Venice

23 o’clock, 11 p.m., Palma and Palmina are again together in their Peony Gondola hour.»Such a good Idea to make a music Dialogue!“, Palma said and smiled.

»Do you remember, Palmina!…This we did all the years as we were daily in Venice in a Gondola.
I composed a short Melody and you composed a reflection, a variation, an ANSWER to my melody!«

»Yes, Palma, my deep love. The most beautiful moments in our difficult live… Every day we met at the Gondola in Venice…«

Palma hugged her with his right arm and Palmina wanted to be at his near and they saw this Peony Vision:

                        * * *

Palma painted long today in the Chiesa »San Antonin« on his paintings till the early evening was coming and Palma felt again asleep in the church.

Palmina could feel the exact moment as Palma felt asleep during she was sitting in her little room at the »Calle de la Pieta« where she made lute-music rehearsal the whole afternoon.

She stopped playing her lute and stood up and said: »It is time to pick up my Palma from his work at the Chiesa San Antonin, it is late and it is going to be fast dark…«

Palmina smiled and took her lutes and her music scores and run down to the place »Campo Bandiera e Moro« and took her direct way to the Church where Palma is painting this year.

ohe Church is directly at the »Fondamente dei Furlani« and Palmina saw that Palma was sleeping in the church very peaceful. She brought also her lantern to bring him light.
Soft she played some bars of her Answering Composition for Palma and Palma could hear her answer during he was sleeping.
»Palmina composed a music ANSWER to my little composition«, he thought and wake slowly up.

In the church was only the light of Palmina and her Lute playing. The dark blue evening light came through the church windows but not strong enough to give some light in the church, only Palmina’s lantern shined.

Palmina brought Palma into his Atelier House Nr. 3291 a few steps near to this the church at the »Fondamente dei Furlani«.

He was so tired that he laid down directly at the floor where the little place to sleep was.
Palmina sat beside him and played her new composition for him.
The lantern light made Palmina so beautiful that he loved her.

As Palmina finished her evening concert for Palma, Palma said:
»You played so wonderfully. It gives me inspiration and power.
But it is now very late and you will sleep today at your 2nd flat at the »La Zitelle«.

»Oh, never mind. I will find my way today evening to get there…«

»Palmina, you are a beautiful young women and very clever. But it is not good to take a Gondola alone from my Atelier to the La Zitelle….«

Palmina listened to Palma and looked into his eyes and Palma suddenly stopped to speak and now only their hearts communicated.

Long both looked into their eyes and smiled.

Yes, this was the secret moments of Palma and Palmina they could tell each other something only from heart-to-heart.

Palma wanted to be with Palmina and to protect her during her Gondola-way to Giudecca-Island.

»You order a Gondola at the »Rio de la Pieta« and I will later come in the Gondola waiting at the »Calle Terrazzera« which is beside the »Calle de la Pieta« (see picture)

picture – Rio de la Pieta and »Calle Terrazzera« where Palma often secretly entered the Gondola while Palmina was waiting with her Lute.

As Palma entered secretly the Gondola he made a fine respectful gesture of the 16th century and Palmina smiled like a little princess and could not wait to play for him on her Lute during her way to the »La Zitelle« on Giudecca island.

Palma gave orders that the Gondolier should only move the Gondola as slow as possible so they have their longest time to be today together.

Palmina had also her lantern light and the Gondola was fulfilled with golden soft harmonic light.

Palma closed sidewise the curtains a little bit, but not complete.
The atmosphere of Venice at night was amazing, also now in the 16th century, and they wanted to see through their curtains a little bit the little lights and the candle lights of Venice.

After the Gondola took her harmonic and slow way along the »Rio de la Pieta« the Gondola turned slowly right to move along the big Promenade.
Palmina smiled to Palma and Palma heart her Lute playing and was lucky.
Palmina played with so much love and luckiness that her music came soft and tender into Palma’s heart. His soul and metaphysic body was touched more than ever.
It seemed that this Gondola is flying over the Lagoon waters of Venice. It felt all like a wonderful dream: To be waked be Palmina’s lute playing in the Church to hear her personal concert in the little Atelier and now to be with her for quite over an hour together in this Gondola.

»Oh, if this Gondola would never stop and we are driving to eternity…«, Palma thought by himself and Palmina could hear his words readings his thoughts and smiled.

Palma listened very exactly to Palmina’s music; the next time he will compose a MUSIC ANSWER to her composition and write it down.

Slowly the Gondola came to the »San Marco Palace« and the San Marco Cathedral.

Every time the Gondola came on this position.

Palma and Palmina thought how wonderful it would be to say the sentence »Yes I Will« and »Yes I Will also«. Palma and Palmina had to smile strong and shy as they both could feel that they had always the same thoughts in this Moment.

It felt as if both marry inside deeply in their hearts every time as the Gondola crosses the two gigantic columns at the San Marco Place.

And Palmina started to play Palma’s »Peony Gondola Song« and Palma took his Mandolin and played with her the whole music piece.

The Gondoliers remembered the birthday of Palmina and as he played with his Mandolin together with 29 other Mandolin playing Gondolier.

Yes it was a big birthday surprise by Palma il Giovane: 30 Gondoliers playing the »Peony Gondola Song«.

And now the Gondola turned slowly left to move directly to the Giudecca Island at the »LA Zitelle«

It was always a romantic experience to be with Palmina together in the Gondola on their way to the little fine island where also the Chinese Family is living in peace.

Palmina smiled to Palma and Palma smiled to Palmina. Their heart united in a music way and this holds the whole night, later as Palma brought secure her to the La Zitelle at the Jesuits where the La Zitelle Girls are sleeping and living and learning music.

As they had been a while together in Palmina’s flat at the 3rd floor they looked long into the direction of the San Marco Place.

»The Cathedral is so near and so far….« Palmina said as Palma put his strong arm around Palmina.

Palma understood the deeper meanings of her words.

»…but we can see us every day and every evening in the Gondola…«, Palma said soft.

The Light of the Lantern was a little bit weak and so they could see the beautiful stars at the evening sky over Venice, over the San Marco Place and over the San Marco Cathedral.

They could see two Pigeons flying in the direction of the cathedral and both smiled as they saw these two loving free flying birds.

»They also marry inside their hearts. From that moment they say YES they are the whole live flying together and thinking on each other… «, Palma said.

Palmina looked into Palma’s face and she gave him a tender cheek kiss. Palma gave her also an ANSWER as cheek kiss and then one kiss slowly on her lips, very tender and soft.

This moment seemed to be eternal and they heard a mystic music like that:

VIDEO: [Violin + Piano 2017-11-16] – https://youtu.be/5eYXlcLBuPc

                        (to be continued...) 

163. »I compose during you are sleeping«

163. »I compose during you are sleeping«
    

And they flew with their Peony-Gondola along the stars at the evening sky.

Palmina laid her head on Palma’s side and said:
»I go now sleeping. Good night.«
»Oh, Good night. I will compose during you are sleeping.«, Palma answered.
»Wow, great, my Palma, my composer and writer…«
And she send him a tender kiss and Palma could receive it and she hold his right hand and Palma could feel it and he was lucky to feel her.

Palma wrote some notes on his music score and Palmina could feel and see him in her heart writing for her a composition.
Palmina smiled. Yes, she is really looking forward to get a new composition by her Jacopo Palma il Giovane.
It was their common secret and no one has the right to destroy such a beautiful heart-to-heart music-painting friendship, isn’t it ?; and why should this make any sense and for whom?

And they continued to dream at this 23 o’clock ( 11 p.m.) and they saw this:

                             * * * 

Palmina wrote and smiled with shining eyes:

»Dear Palma!

I am now writing during my concert-tour travelling to Vienna.
I hope I can see you soon!
In 15 hours we will arrive Vienna, the world city of culture and music!
How fine that our »La Zitelle Chamber Orchestra« can play a charity concert there against international child-prostitution.

How wise is Master Lao! He could warn us: There are criminal enemy’s who wants to destroy our communication and our La Zitelle Chamber Orchestra. Therefore we have so much soldiers and bodyguards. I am carefully not to be influenced by a fake-bodyguard. I order always two body guards, so in the worse case only one is a fake-bodyguard and the other is a areal one…
I think I could figure out who is the fake-bodyguard, who is paid by the dark sugar earth network administrators and who wants to isolate me from contacts to other artists in Vienna.

I hope the criminals are not stealing my letters which I wrote to you.
I always write a copy so that I can give you my copy today in our Peony-Gondola hour today at 23 o’clock (11 p.m.).

How thankful I am that I can see you daily in our Peony-Gondola, the timeless, spaceless dimension. YES, no criminal evil soul is allowed to enter.

I am always thinking on you, my dear music-painting friend, since we spoke the first time in this live.
Our friendship is something that goes beyond primitive rules or traditions.The results of our friendship will have a positive influence of the world’s history, I believe…
We both like traditions and we both love them, because we are artists and to be an artist it means to know them, but I know: Art means not only tradition, but also tradition.
So this is your mission in Venice as artist as Master Scholar of Master Titian and I will always be with you to help you like a flying pigeon or a little bird in a cage beside your composing harpsichord.
More important it is that we THINK ON EACH OTHER and that we like us and that we love us.

How was your first painting lessons at the gardens of the Ming dynasty family?
Are they listening to you, are they talented?
Did you learn a little bit about Asian Art and music, especially the music instruments?

I can’t wait to see and to feel and to hear your heart beating at 11 p.m.

With much love and tenderness,

Your white Pigeon, your little yellow canary bird,

   Your you loving Palmina«


        * * *

And after they saw this Vision Palmina tried to touch Palma’s right hand and he could feel it and she kissed soft on his right cheek and he could feel it.

Every time she made this Palma smiled and he tried also to hold her hand and to kiss her soft.

The Peony-Gondola helped to unite them; to exchange ideas and feelings; to exchange love and light. In this Gondola there is no distance between two loving souls.
It is the best basic for a common cultural exchange.

»Palma?«
»Hm?«
»Why we don’t make a common composition?«
»A common composition?«
»Yes. Listen, Palma:
I mean YOU start to compose a few notes and then I compose a few notes as ANSWER…«
»Ah, good!… and then I compose again a few notes!
THAT’S A GOOD IDEA! Let’s do this in our Peony Gondola.«
»Yes. Palma, let us make a music dialogue of our hearts and write this down.
We are the first in music history doing this!«
»Yes, we are also the first in music history who loves deeply from our hearts without any support by…«
»…psst, don’t say it. My mum likes you and your mum likes me…«
Palma smiled and hold his strong arm around her and she laid her head on Palma’s right side to listen his heart and to be near to him. She gives him warm feeling and he gives her warm feelings even it is outside in the world sometimes cold and hard.

And they dreamed both now in music tones as an inner-heart dialogue and the Peony Gondola flew along the stars at the evening sky.

And as they flew along the stars at the evening sky they heard a music piece like that:

And they continued to dream their Peony-Gondola Dream and they saw this:

* * *

Palmina took her Pipa Lute and played the »Thinking on each other Melody« which Palma composed for her. Always if Palmina thought intensive on her Palma il Giovane she played this melody on her Pipa Lute or Venetian Lute.
Suddenly Palma felt a warm tender feeling in and around his heart. It felt like a Peony-Pink-Cyan White light.
Palm felt that Palmina is able to huge Palma only with her love and light fully thoughts.

Palma started suddenly to smile as he realized that and he started to think on her and he played the same Melody on his Viola to express his love for her.
After that he wrote:

»Venice, 15 – –

Dear Palmina!

Today I could feel deeply in my heart that you wrote me a message.
Sure the criminal administrators of the dark sugar earth social network erased it so I will not get any message. Maybe European laws will soon control them and judge them as we all expect it.
How good that we meet today in our Peony Gondola.

I miss you so much. I can’t wait to meet you again in the Peony Gondola.
Today I will hold my painting lesson at the gardens on Giudecca Island. I hope my students can follow my teaching.
I will also learn about Asian painting traditions, especially about traditional Chinese Wood-engraving Artwork. And sure Master Lao will tell us more about cultural traditions…
There are also a lot of Buddhist nuns, some are very,very young and they will held a prayer ceremony in the rooms of the Gardens of the Ming Dynasty Family on Giudecca Island in Venice.
That remembers me on Marco Polo.
Marco Polo was long time in China and was also a high grade politician and governor, personally selected by the Chinese Emperor.
On his way to the Emperor Marco Polo felt in love in a little young buddhist nun, the Chinese Princess. Later he married her and brought her to Venice and lived secretly there in the Gardens of Giudecca Island behind the well protected Walls.

Yes, Palmina, Marco Polo loves her, I mean he loves you, I mean he is still loving you, my inspiring Pigeon and secret princess.

Today a Pigeon was flying and looking like the saint spirit pigeon. She flew directly over me. Maybe a sign or an inspiring moment…

I am writing down the music we heard as we hugged so long in our Gondola.

I love you, my Pigeon, my Inspiration.

Your Jacopo Palma il Giovane.«

61. Palmina is inspiring like a saint spirit pigeon

And during Palmina is travelling to Vienna she thought deeply secretly in her heart on her Palma il Giovane at 23 o clock, 11 p.m.

Palma did the same in this moment.

They feel so connected with their »Peony Gondola«.
Palmina smiled to Palma and Palma smiled to Palmina.
Palmina hold Palma’s right hand and he could feel it.

Palma thought on the blessings by Saint Carolus Borromeo and his saint words:

»May always be a saint spirit pigeon with you…«

And he remembers that he saw Palmina smiling during he had a vision of a Saint spirit Pigeon. And it was exactly this smile now in this moment by Palmina.

As he kissed Palmina tender in their Peony Gondola Palma and Palmina had the same amazing innerheart-Peony-Vision of the saint spirit pigeon.
They heard the composition »qui ex patre« and »qui cum patre« which describes the golden orange light, the energy, the metaphysic meaning of the saint spirit pigeon in music.
Palma should write this music down during Palmina is in Vienna. He should write it down for the future.

And they hugged during this whole music very long. They did not stop to love deeply from »heart to heart« as spiritual love.

* * *

And they saw in a Vision Saint Carolus Borromeo who helped that this music will once be played in the famous St. Carlschurch¹ in Vienna in the future of music history.

And they heard the musicians playing like that:
