232. „5 Finger Tremolo“ Inspiration

232. „5 Finger Tremolo“ Inspiration

And after they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina smiled and remembered this time of heart-to-heart communication.

She made a deep sigh.

On one side it was hard not to get the letter they wrote each other, stolen by criminal organisation administrators, but on the other hand the birds helped them to communicate with their music hearts.
It was also a time of spiritual growing.
A time of living on different two places.
Palmina saw always earlier rising the sun on her island, in the morning,  as Palma in Venice.
But Palmina was connected with Palma with their Peony Gondola.

Now the Peony Gondola showed them this important Vision as warning and they saw this:

  * * *

They saw a conference held in Swizerland.
All business administrators of a medicine producing business concern where there and their founder said:
„…We are making this conference because we will talk about expanding our business all over the world. Paedopharm products will soon be available everywhere…“

„…excuse, director, why we are expanding our business so fast? Is there a religious motivation or why we should…“

„…we have now business partners from the vaticane state, a mighty Cardinale, Cardinal Hell is his name I think… he will finance our business deal….ha, ha, ha…and their friends of the 8 Culture Centers, the muslime there, our good friends, will also buy our products, ha, ha, ha…. They want to buy Paedopharm products for their clients.“

„Clients? The Vatican and the Cultural Centres of the Muslime want to buy our Products, why? Officialy our Products are created for hyperactive children and nothing else.
Why they use our medicine for other clients or do they have hyperactive children…?“

„Where?“

„…I mean at the Vatican and at the 8 Cultural Centers…?“

„Ah, ….this we do not discuss, why they are giving that to children…. If they give it to adults they are loosing their ability to remember…This is not our Problem… For us Paedopharm it is only interesting that we are expanding our business. Do you understand?“

„But, but, there are new therapy methods  as alternative for our medicine? Talking-, Music-Art…“

„Oh, dont tell me this therapy methods…
Who needs a Talking-Therapy, so called Psycho Therapy…?
Who needs a music therapy with playing and listening to music?
Who needs a Art Therapy, with doing painting as therapy?

Hm, who needs creativity…?
Hm, who needs persons who can remember…?

We are the most important persons, We have the solution, We have developed this medicine .. We are selling our Paedopharm products for children…“

„..but, sorry, if the Paedopharm products are replaced to this Therapy methods the people will get addicted to our products and loosing their memory and loosing their free will, isn’t it, director…?“

„This is not your problem… If you want to become rich then you sell our products to the Vatican and to the Moslems, and maybe also to the Dark…“

„..to criminal organisation- like the dark sugar administrators and its false priests, who support structural the expanding of child-prostitution, selling children to those who pay…to tourists on that island?..and they are stealing the private letters from the citizens…“

„..this you said, not I, ha, ha, ha…
Who needs psycho therap, ha, ha, ha…
Who needs music therapy, ha, ha, ha..
Who needs art therapy, ha, ha, ha…“

And the director looked at all his money and gold he has in his big box on his table and played with the gold coins and the other participants of that conference looked with very, very big eyes at the plenty of this money and gold coins in this box.

* * *

And after Palmina and Palma saw this Peony Gondola Vision both have been shocked .

„How can people be like that: Only interested in getting more and more money, destroying the life of so much children…“, Palmina said concerned.

„Yes, they make business with criminal organisations like the…“,

„…don’t say it, Palma, we saw it in our Peony Gondola Vision…we are warned about the persons around Cardinal Hell…“

„..the people said that he will not come out of prison not fast as it was told in the newspapers, there are bigger crimes he made, killing those innocent little…“

„…don’t say it, Palma, we read it in the newspapers…they will judge him…“, Palmina said calming down Palma.

Let us think about this time as we dreamed every day about each other during my concert tour on Cyprus Island.

You send me a bird message and you compsed for me…
And they saw now this Peony Gondola Vision.

* * *

Palma finised his drawing and took a music score to write a new music piece.
He looked out of his window at the San Marco Place and thought on his Pigeon.
He could see her sitting and playing in her room, holding her Pipa Lute.
Soft she repeated on tone with the,“5 finger tremolo“ and it sounds so sweet.
Palma smiled he wanted to kiss her hands but he did not want to distub her playing.
So he wrote down the tremolo notes as inspiration for Violin and Piano.

He composed and composed. Palmina is inspiring him now strongly.

And as he was ready with his new composition he saw her music via their Peony Gondola.

* * *
As Palmina received this music she smiled and understood that the repeating tone in the highest part of the piano parts represent the 5 finger tremolo technique of her Lute.
She understands this secret dedication and was very lucky.

* * *

After they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palma hugged her with his strong arm and Palmina put her head on his side.
Palma could feel it: She want to listened this artwork again.

And she heard the music lying with her head to hear Palma’s music heart and it was like this;

231. Nannerl understands the composition of Mozart

231. Nannerl understands the composition of Mozart

Maria-Anna-Mozart-_3431812k

picture – of Nannerl Mozart with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

„Yes, they are like Palmina Albina and Jacopo Palma il Giovane!“, Nannerl said to Mozart very enthusiastic and full of joy in her beautiful innocent soft voice.
Mozart was lucky that Nannerl understood why the Prince was not able to answer her, he answered her with music little compositions and with his dreams during the time of silence.
They connected with their hearts with making music for each other.
Nannerl is a clever musician, a clever composing female, and very wise. She understands the deeper meaning of art work.
As she visited Venice with Mozart she seemed to understand every painting from Palma il Giovanne and she felt inspired to compose a little composition to a few artworks of this Venetian Master.
Mozart was wondering why Nannerl has such a deep connection to the Legend of Palma and Palmina in Venice in the 16th and 17th century.
Every time as Mozart told legends from Palmina her eyes seemed to shine as if she was in love.
„My sister Nannerl seemes to know this Palma and to like him…she seems to know him in a way which can not be explained with western traditions and way of thinking. There is a mystery connection between them. Ts,ts,ts Nannerl, Nannerl..“, Mozart thought silent.

* * *

After Palma saw this nice Peony Gondola Vision Palmina huged Palma and said „My Palma, my composer-my painter and love letter writer…“

Palma hugged Palmina also and kissed her tender on her cheeks.

Suddenly they saw this Peony Gondola Vision;

* * *

Palma sat back to his table where he worked on his new drawing.
He took an empty page of a letter paper and started inspired to write an answer to Palminas secret bird message.
During this the White Pigeon waited at the window to get an answer from Palma, to bring the answer to the next mail bird which will bring the message to Palmina’s Island.

He wrote:
„Venice, 15..

(Letter 231)

Dear Palmina,
my beloved Pigeon,
My inspiration,
My deep old eternal love
Yesterday I could feel that you are thinking on me and now the Pigeon brought me your music message.
Such a positive inspiration, if your thoughts are moving in my direction.
How wonderful it is to feel your lovely thoughts towards me.
Thank you, Palmina, my angel, my music angel. Now I feel strong to finish my recent artworks… You are so inspiring, my sweet Palmina.
I hug you here in Venice, as if you were here with me. Maybe our unique love will inspire generations…
Let’s keep to go this inspiring way of love.
I hope you are well…
How are your concerts ongoing on your island?
Who sponsored the concerts?
I am so proud on you that you thought yesterday on me and that you send me a message, my heart received your message.

I could feel your positive energy. I know, we will never give up to think on each other.
Your positive energy inspired me to compose a little piece for Violin and Viola.
At the end there is our „Thinking on each other melody“.

Soon I will send you the music in our Peony Gondola.
Your you deeply loving
Jacopo Palma il Giovane“

And Palma took his Viola and played this message as music. The Pigeon listened interested and after Palma finished the melody the Pigeon made „Grooo, Groooooo“ and started to fly to bring the message to the birds which fly to Palmina.

Long Palma looked to the window at the San Marco Place. He saw how the Pigeon flew between the 2 huge colums.
For Palma it looked in this special moment as if these columns were the columns of Herakles and the Pigeon is flying in an other dimension.
Palma smiled.
„Greet Palmina from me…“, Palma thought silent and his eyes followed the way of the Pigeon for a long time.

Then he sat back to the table and continued to draw.
Suddenly he looked up from his artwork and smiled.
Yes, he could feel that Palmina is thinking on him.

He could feel her friendly smile.

230. Tender Messages from the Island of the „Daughter of Saint Mark“

„Love is not a illusion,
Love is not only a feeling,
But Love will remain if all other things are gone.
Gerald Spitzner“

 

Portrait_of_Caterina_Coronaro_1542_uffizi_florence_Titian (1)

picture – Caterina Cornaro, Queen of Cyprus, Queen of Armenia, Byzantium Princess and „Daughter of Saint Mark“ *) painted by Master Titian

At this eternal Peony Gondola Hour at 23 o’clock Palmina was lucky to hear that music from Palma“s heart.

After this music vision Palmina raised her head, smiled and said now with her soft innocent voice:
„Oh, Palma, my composer! You made me so happy with your 4 Strings variation…“
Palma smiled and answered „Oh, my Pigeon my inspiration, even if we would live on two different places, we would be connected with the help of our Peony Gondola.“
„Yes, Palma, we would think on each other every day, every moment.“, Palmina said with a big smile.

„Can you remember the years between 1578 and 1580 or so…you have been several times in Cyprus Island and wanted to write a letter to me?…“

„Yes, Palma, how could I forget this…“

And now they saw this Peony Gondola Vision:

* * *

Palmina sat on her little table on her little window, her music instruments beside her, and looked out of her little window over her little garden.

She saw a bird flying from tree to tree.
„Oh, I want to write a letter or message to my Jacopo Palma il Giovane, I love him so much…“

And she started to write a nice, beautiful letter to Palma. After she did this she moved her head a little bit left and a little bit right to proof if it is written good and nice.

She wrote:“

Cyprus Island, 15..
Dear beloved Palma!

Today I thought all the day how I can send you a message.
There is no secure way to a message from my island since the island was taken 1572, and the Christian Church had been destroyed from the „holy war worrier“.

Today in the north over 300 citizens had been attaked and killed, over 500 citizens are injured at the north part of the island.
I think the island will be divided in a north and a south part in the future.
I am living in the south-west part and there is no war here and no terror but they are stealing our letters.
Palma, during my concert tour here I suddenly found out that my father, who left mother for an other women, started secret business relations with the enemies of our republic of Venice. Isn’t it terrible?
I am not sure, but I feel that the dark sugar earth social network administrators have secret business relation to the Vatican State. The people here say a mighty cardinale will be arrested soon.
But to write a secure letter it is not possible, also here in the south west part of my island.
We all feel isolated here if we get not soon HELP FROM EUROPE.
Palma, I want to communicate with you.
Why we can not get rid of the letter stealing dark sugar earth organisation?
Communication should be a basic right!
I visited the historic place of my ancient relatives from the 14th century. How beautiful Master Titian painted the relative of my mother…
Here is a copy of the painting and it is also very good.
My beloved Palma, I want to tell you that I am planing to play some compositions from you, especially your „Loredan Mass in G-Major“ for Choir and Orchestra.
I found a nice Choir Master and he wants to perform parts of your composition from you, here on my Island here.
I remember as you composed the first movement on your Mandolin solo, standing under my little window in the „Calle de la Pieta“ in Venice to express your inspiration and love to me.
Oh, Palma, I want to come back to Venice. I think the Vatican-business-friends from the north are reading my letter and controlling my private contacts.
We have to see us today again in our secret Peony Gondola to make music over a big distance, to speak with each other over a big distance and to hug over a big distance.

Hope you will get my message.
Il tell this message as music message to my birds in my garden.
Their communication system is more secure and faster than the human mail system.

With much love
Your you deeply loving
Palmina Albina“

And Palmina took her music instrument and started to play wonderfully.

The little colorful bird landed on her window and wanted to listen to her music message. Palmina transformed her music message into a beautiful melody.
The other birds on the trees looked interested and stopped to sing just to hear Palmina.
After Palmina ended the bird flew lucky away, made a little round in the air and flew to another bird far away.
Then the bird sung Palmina’s melody and the other bird listened.
Later this other bird flew lucky away and flew far, far away to another bird over the sea and landed at another bird and sung the Melody.
Yes, and also this bird brought the secret music message for Palma to another bird, and so on…
After a few days a bird landed at Palma’s window in Venice, the city of love and art, and tweeted friendly and lucky.
Palma stood up from his new drawing he was in that moment creating.
He smiled and understood.
Very heartfelt and exactly he is listening to the sweet music love message from his Pigeon Palmina.
Palma understood every word of her letter and thanked to the little Pigeon, who brought the message from Cyprus Island.

* * *

As they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palma said with a sigh in his voice:

„Yes, this was a miracle, I suddenly understood the bird language, Palmina, I love you…“,

„… the message as secret music from the birds: This was a funny idea, Palma.“

And suddenly they saw a new Peony Gondola Vision in another century:

* * *

„You may not speak with Pamina now…“ a priest voice said.

Suddenly they saw the famous composer Mozart sitting beside his sweet sister Nannerl on their family piano.

Mozart took the beautiful talented hands of Nannerl and kissed them tender and said:
„Natschi, Tschini fibi!
… Nannerl, how do you love my creation „The magic flute“, hmmmmmmmm? “

And he kissed her cheeks fast, hoping she likes it.

Nannerl, was shy and smiled:“ Oh, Amadeus. I love it very much…the music but, why the prince can not speak with his deep tender love Pamina at the beginning?“

„Oh, Yes, my inspiration, my sweet yellow canary bird. The Prince and Pamina are not allowed to speak with each other because they should learn to communicate from heart to heart without words.
But, one thing is allowed for them:
To make music during the time of spiritual growing and spiritual development – the time of silence.“

Nannerl said : “ But, Pamina loves him and she wants to talk with him. The prince can not explain her that this time of silence is only a short time…so he composes for her little music pieces on his instrument…“

Mozart said fast:“ …they are going to be a spiritual pair and they are having a spiritual marriage at the end of my opera!“

„A spiritual marriage? Woooo, like Saint Cecilia made it once? Like the saint of music did it…?“, Nannerl said beeing very lucky and inspired,
„But, they made music for each other during the time of silence, to feel each other inside their hearts, to learn to love each other outside the body., inside their hearts and dreams.“

 229. 4 Strings Inspiration

And after they saw this Peony Gondola Vision and listened to this music Palmina plucked on her music instrument:
A – d – e- a

Palma could feel it and he took also his music instrument and plucked

c – g – d‘ – a‘

Palmina smiled and said
„Pi -„

Palma answered:
„- Pa“

…both looked into their eyes and smiled.
Now both said fast
„Liu – to – kiss!“ in the same moment.
And now they kissed short and tender but full of inspiration.

Palma felt again inspired by his Pigeon and composed an Inspiration about the 4 Strings A d e a.
Palmina could  hear this music putting her head again on his side and it was like this:

228. Eternal Inspiration

228. Eternal Inspiration

picture 1 – Long Promenade on Giudecca in Venice

As Palma and Palmina saw this Peony Gondola Vision and listened together to the music, Palmina was lucky and proud that her Palma was creative with composing. She thanked for the music and she smiled to Palma and Palma could feel this.
Now they saw this Peony Gondola Vision:

   * * *

Palmina came now to the nice, fine and long birthday concert in Palma’s representative rooms.
All was prepared and well organized especially by Crezia Giulia and Mihaela.
Palma brought the poor girl from the Le Zitelle to help her and to speak with some important persons from the ‚Le Zitelle Foundation‘.
How lucky this poor girl was, how beautiful she was in Palmina’s fine cloths..

Shy she looked in this big fine rooms, looked nice at the big paintings on the wall.

During this feast Palmina played on her instrument very creative and beautiful. Of course some own creations and some composition from Palma for her.

Palma’s Cousine Michaela sung an Aria and Crezia and Giulia made the little feast well harmonic organized. Fine Important Persons of the Republic of Venice came to Palma’s birthday and the feast went for all very good.

   * * *

After the decent talks between Palmina and the important persons from the ‚Le Zitelle foundation‘ – this to help the poor girl – Palma and Palmina are now together at 23 o“clock in their Peony Gondola.

The Gondola moved around Venice under the beautiful planets on the eventing sky.

After a while their Gondola took her slow way along the Giudecca Island. It was their way along the very long Promenade. They often walked here at the evenings.

Now they are taking this walk with the Gondola and the Gondola stopped at the place they hugged once long and eternal.
Palmina went with her beautiful decent concert cloth out of the Gondola and Palma helped her holding her beautiful and talented hand. He smiled, looked into her shining eyes and kissed soft her hand.

picture 5 - View from the big Promenade to the »Le Zitelle« on Giudecca Island

picture 2 – long Promenade on Giudecca in Venice

Without saying a word both thought on the long, deep and eternal huge here on Giudecca. Both had now the same feeling in their hearts like once.

Again they higged and kissed soft and tender.

So they went holding their hands slowly along this beautiful Promenade till they arrived the Pizzeria to sit there outside under the stars of Venice and to  inspire each other.

* * *
As they saw together this beautiful Peony Gondola Vision, Palma put his arm around Palmina.
He gave her a good hold and he was lucky to sit with her in their Peony Gondola.

He hugged her, kissed her.
Yes, this inspired him. So he felt an ‚Eternal Inspiration‘ and he composed a new music creation in his heart and Palmina could feel this, yes Palmina could hear this music in her heart.

  And this music was like this:

227. Palmina helps as music therapist

227. Palmina helps as music therapist

Now they continued to dream their Peony Gondola Dream like that:

picture 01 - Palma's window's in the 2nd floor beside the building of the astronomical clock.png

picture 01 – Palma’s window’s in the 2nd floor beside the building of the astronomical clock

* * *

Palma stood slowly up and opened the cage of his Letter-mail-Pigeon to give her the Mail for Palmina.
He took the snow-white Pigeon in his hands and kissed her tender and he let her flew over the San Marco Place.

picture 02 - This view is seen a little bit more left than from Palma's windows in the 2nd floor

picture 02 – This view is seen a little bit more left than from Palma’s windows in the 2nd floor

After she made a little round she flew directly over the Lagoon water to Palmina’s official music-teaching flat at the »Le Zitelle«.

picture 03 - View from San Marco Place in Venice to Giorgio Maggiore (ready edification at 1510)

picture 03 – View from San Marco Place in Venice to Giorgio Maggiore (ready edification at 1610)

Palmina is now ready with all her music lessons and the Gondolier will come in a few minutes to pick her up and bring her to Palma’s family flat on San Marco Place.

Suddenly someone knocked on her wooden door of her flat.

picture 04 - View to Palmina's flat at the »Le Zitelle« in the 3rd floor on the left side (in this picture there is light at two windows)
picture 04 – View to Palmina’s flat at the »Le Zitelle« in the 3rd floor on the left side (in this picture there is light at two windows)

Palmina asked and heard the voice of the last music student from today coming back very excited.

Palmina opened the door and let her again in her flat back:

Palmina has lit on the candle light because the day is slowly turning to a nice evening – Palma’s birthday…

But the girl was excited and said:
»Dear Signorina Palmina, my music teacher! I have an urgent question to you.
I come here only for the music lesson and I am not yet living here at the Le Zitelle like the other girls here but, but, but…«, The young beautiful but shy and sad girl asked.

»Oh, normally I have to go after I have finished my music lessons on le Zitelle and I will celebrate the birthday of our Jacopo Palma il Giovane…«, Palmina answered.

»…no,no, only short, I have only a short important question. I do not know what I should do now.«,

»So what is your question to me…«

»..yes, the friend of my (father/brother?) is urging to give me liquid sugar in my drink and always saying this is healthy for me…
But, but…after a few hours I am loosing my remembering. So I do not know what happened with me in the last hours… I feel so strange, by body…what happened with me…«

»..you are not remembering…?«

»Yes, It is always after I drink a glass of water with that sugar…It feels so strange«

»Hmm…?«

»..yes it is strange, isn’t it? I can not remember what happened…and the next day a person wearing false priest cloth like it is usual at the Carnevale in Venice, is getting a lot of money from the (friend/brother) of my father…and this happens very often the last years….Palmina, Palmina, who can help me?….«

And the girl felt on the knees, like being in-front of a Saint.

»Oh, come up..sit down here…I can give you a contact here on the Le Zitelle which can give you professional help. You know this foundation, which was founded at 1500 here in Venice from the Mighty Doges Family Loredan and especially this church building was later also founded from a fine family member of the Loredans. They give you professional help in that case – Here you are secure – We have body guards from the Republic of Venice to protect all girls we are helping, some are living here, you know…«

The girl hugged Palmina as if she is her spiritual mother and Palmina closed her eyes and understood the dangerous situation in which the beautiful girl is now living with his family.

»One question? Is this sugar called „dark sugar earth“…«

»Dark sugar earth? Yes, I could listen the words of the false priest, wearing actor priest cloths, speaking of the World Wide expention of the Church of Dark Sugar Earth…
I read in the newspaper that this illegal church is a dangerous social network, with contacts to dangerous administrators… one was arrested, a cardinal or so and all his criminal helpers earning money from child-prostitution…with that money they are expanding their fake-religion. A Mrs. Cambridge founded it in Spain or so, inspired by non-christian radical religions business group from south Spain or so, I am not sure…«, the girl excited said.

»Oh, I see…I know, I read it in the newspaper, they arrested a ‚big fish‘ of the administrators of this social network… The criminal administrators wanted that the good Cardinal, Cardinale Wang, or is his name Cardinale Carolus Borromäus*) should be arrested because he helped to save all these poor girls, girls like you and our Le Zitelle Girls he at »Santa Maria de la Presentatione«, here on Giudecca Island…Here I give you the name and address…Don’t talk to your brother…or was it your father?..your father’s brother?,…or your fathers friend…Talk to nobody …AND DO NOT DRINK WATER with SUGAR!!!«, Palmina said like a sever teacher but very friendly with her soft and beautiful voice

»…But wait, today at Palma’s birthday the Person will be at the special guests concert in Palmina’s family flat where I am living now…You can come with me to the feast and I will arrange the contact…«

________________

*) Carolus Borromaus, was arrested because of helping children against child-prostitution with founding helping institutions within the catholic church
(Official there was told that he helped ill people too much so they made this as ‚reason‘ to arrest him).
He saved the Sacred Music Tradition of Europe within the ‚Council of Trient‘ while the radical groups wanted to shut down any religions music in all churches worldwide.

________________

»Woow, what, I, I…your little poor music student girl..? I can come to the fine V.I.P. concert on Palma’s birthday on San Marco Place!!!«, the beautiful and poor girl said and jumped in the air several times.

»But, I will give you some cloth from me. Over there, you see these fine cloth?… you should wear it this evening. it is a very fine family, you know…
Jacopo Palma il Giovane is a very fine man and has the biggest heart of Venice, especially for the Le Zitelle girls….
I think he will also give you a job as model in the Titian Painting school and he will paint you beautifully as saint or saint virgin and so…«

And the little girl jumped again several times in the air and hugged Palmina smiling and she was so lucky to have Palmina as her music teacher like a music therapist.

In this moment Palma’s fast Letter Pigeon flew on Palmina’s window in the 3rd floor.

picture 05 - view at Palmina's music teaching flat at the »Le Zitelle« on Giudecca Island (A 'Gondola' is arriving to pick Palmina up)

picture 05 – view at Palmina’s music teaching flat at the »Le Zitelle« on Giudecca Island (A ‚Gondola‘ is arriving to pick Palmina up)

»Come! Palma wrote me a letter…
Go and try this beautiful cloth…
hurry up..we are late..
The ‚Gondolieri‘ is coming, I see him from the window…He is coming to pick us up and he will bring us to San Marco Place in a few minutes…
Hurry up…
Yes, take this cloth and I will read fast the Signore Jacopo Palma’s Letter….«, Palmina fast organized.

Yes, Palmina was clever and fast organizing. She could be decent an carefully with her music students like a music therapist. Always she takes care, also not only of the music pedagogic development; also she takes care of the psychic situation of her girl students.

Palmina read the letter slowly and smiled standing on her window and looking to the direction of the San Marco Place.

* * *

Palma stood also at the window and felt that Palmina is reading his letter and it felt so warm in his heart to be connected with her.

And after they saw this beautiful Peony Gondola Vision, Palmina put her head on Palma’s side and she wanted to hear what Palma’s heart is now composing music for Organ and Violin and they saw a Vision and they saw musicians at an Organ standing in 300 or 400 years in the future.

The music was like this:

They continued to dream their Peony Gondola Vision and they saw this:

* * *

Palma went fast home at his flat on San Marco Place to get the Pigeon-Letter-Mail.

And as he arrived and opened his window in the second floor and the snow-white Letter-Mail-Pigeon waited and made friendly „Groo, Groooooo“. Palma smiled and took her carefully in her hands.
Now he opened her letter and read it.
Palma’s eyes where very lucky and he sat down to his table and continued to read her beautiful Pigeon-Mail.

Then he looked out of his window. From here he can not see the windows of Palmina’s flat in the 3rd floor on Giudecca Island but he feels that she is also standing now at the window and smiling.

Palma looked into the direction of Giorgio Maggiore and said:
»The church of »Isola San Giorgio Maggiore« is complete erected. This is a symbol of our love…I have to answer Palmina on her letter…«

Palma kissed the letter and he started fast to write an answer:

»Venice, 16…

Dear Palmina!

Thank you, I received your Pigeon-Mail,
I also can’t wait to be with you in our Peony Gondola at 23 o’clock.
Today the breakfast you made on my birthday was so nice, especially the music you played for me on my bed with your lutes.
You made a new composition for me and you made a nice variation of my composition for your lutes.
I hear it the whole day during my painting work in my remembering, in my deep heart.
Thank you Palmina.
And today at midday you and Michaela made such a good lunch for me, and you made the first celebration on this birthday for me.
Mihaela made a surprise, you know, she searched the »happy birthday music version in my language – in Veneto!«.
As you saw Crezia and Julia made two paintings for me – So nice – My daughter like you very much, You all women are all my personal angels since my wife died and I am a lonely man.

I am locking forward to celebrate my birthday with you – You are now a part of my family.
I love you my sweet pigeon,
my inspiration, my Santa Cecilia

Your you deeply loving

Jacopo Palma il Giovane

PS: Do you think that Natalie from Russia, you know the talented Organ Playing musician, will come to our nice birthday feast in our big flat on San Marco Place and play with us some music with our family? Mihaela said her mother was at the ospedaletto and is not well, let’s pray for her mother. Mihaela is praying for her…«

And as they saw this Peony Vision Palma and Palmina hugged and kissed soft and they remembered the beautiful house concert for Palma’s birthday at his home:

And Palma and Palmina looked this concert together in this Peony Vision:

This concert was beautiful and it was like that:

They continued to dream their Peony Gondola Vision and they saw this:

* * *

The next day Palmina had always to think about Palma’s Piano solo he composed for his beloved Palmina, his inspiration, his Saint Cecilia.

Today she had two talented music students at the Gardens of Giudecca.
The mother of the talented girls is also playing a music instrument and it is very creative to teach them music lessons.

As Palmina went back along the Giudecca island to the »Le Zitelle« she teaches also the girls there in music.

Now she has a little break between her music lessons.
Sitting in her official flat in the 3rd floor of the »Le Zitelle« building she is thinking on her Palma, which has today birthday and she sat down on her little table at the window and started to write a Pigeon-letter mail to her Palma il Giovane who lives on the other side of the Lagoon water on the San Marco Place.
From her window she can see directly to the San Marco Place and she smiled.

She looked to the cage of the Letter-Pigeon and smiled to her.

»After my music lessons here, I will go to Palma and celebrate with him his birthday in our Peony Gondola. But first I will send him a Pigeon-letter mail to wish him happy birthday…«, Palmina thought lucky and smiling.

* * *

Palma felt in this moment that she is writing a letter to her and he stopped for a while his painting work at the famous palazzo in Venice.
In his thoughts he could feel, no he could see her sitting beautifully on her table writing a Pigeon-Letter Mail for him.

In his imagination it looks so beautiful and poetic how his sweet Palmina is thinking and writing for him.
Palma cleaned fast his fingers, full of wet colours and took a sheet of paper and a pencil to draw how he feels and sees Palmina in his deep heart Vision.

Palma made a very fast drawing.

picture – drawing by Palma il Giovane

Yes, Palma is the INVENTOR OF THE DRAWING AS INDEPENDENT ART DISCIPLINE.
Before Palma there was only the tradition that a pencil drawing is only the draft of an oil painting and the drawing has no meaning for art.
Palma was famous for doing fast and very often own drawings and these drawings had been the first time in the history of art defined as a complete independent art discipline.

Palma send her an imaginary cheek kiss and Palmina smiled in this moment and kissed the letter she wrote:

„Venice, Giudecca-Island 16….

My beloved Palma!

Today on your BIRTHDAY, I write you a little Pigeon-Letter-Mail.
I am so lucky that we can see us now every day and I am now a part of your life.
The Pigeon will fly from here at the »Le Zitelle« over the Lagoon water directly to your window at the 2nd floor at the San Marco Place. And no one will destroy the letter. No one will steal the letter. No one will destroy our deep love and our deep music art friendship.
I know that I am inspiring you and that you are always lucky to be creative in painting, composing and writing in order to these inspirations.
Last time we met in our Peony Gondola at 23 o’clock you composed from your heart a music piece I loved so much – The Piano solo –

Palma, thank you!
My composer, my painter and writer…

I would like to tell you that I am planing to play several compositions from you in my little fine concerts.
Today we can speak about this in our Peony Gondola at 23 o’clock celebrating your birthday.

Dear Palma, I am so looking forward to see you!

Happy birthday, dear Palma!

Your you deeply loving

Palmina, your Pigeon, your Saint Cecilia“

And as they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina took her Lute and played for him being with him in this beautiful Peony Gondola.

And suddenly a text appeared written in an old Chinese language like this on the evening sky.

說萬物者莫說乎澤,*)

„Of all that forces that GIVE JOY things, there is no more gladdening than the LAKE ☱.“

And then Palma took his Viola music instrument and Palmina took her Pipa Lute and they made together music at their Peony Gondola hour at 23 o’clock like this about the image of „LAKE, the joyous“ :

224. Palma tunes his harpsichord after Palmina’s lute

224. Palma tunes his harpsichord after Palmina’s lute

1

And as Palmina heard so directly music from Palma’s heart she realized that she started to dream and Palma put his arm around her during that and she smiled.
Also Palma did. And he could feel her smile at the beginning of this Peony Gondola hour at 23 o’clock. Palmina smiled very strong, Palma could feel it and smiled also, it was not possible not to smile.
Palma dreamed also, the same dream in this moment, in this Peony Gondola hour at 23′ o clock.
And they continued to dream and they saw this:

* * *

Palma was sitting on his harpsichord and realized, as he finished tuning it, that if he tunes his harpsichord after the Lute of Palmina, in well tempered half tones, it was possible to modulate a music through all half-tones in Magior and Minor.
But Palma tried out to play now and it was possible!
Normally here in Venice, in this 16th century, it was not possible to do so on a harpsichord or an organ – the instruments are tuned to play only in a few scale but not in all 12 semitone scale.
Palma will next week ask an organ-tuner to tune a little organ after Palmina’s semitones.
»Do you think, Palmina, he will tune the Organ like my harpsichord in equal like Well-tempered *) 12 semi-tones like your lute and my mandolin are already tuned?«, Palma asked loud, hoping that she is in the room nearby, listening him and that she will come to him in the big representative room of his flat on the San Marco Place in Venice, in the 2nd floor.

picture - Circle of fifths

picture – circle of fiths needs the „well tempered tunning“ –  the „Well temperament“ *)

»Yes, Palma, Yes…I think he will try it after you have shown him how your harpsichord is tuned…wait, I come…«, Palmina answered from the other room.
And now Palmina came with her lute to make music with Palma.
This moments are the most beautiful moments in Palma’s painting and artis’s live.
Palmina is with him and they are now alone, and they only want to do one thing: To make music, to feel the music-harmonic-connection between their hearts.
Palma played a few notes to test his new „lute-tuning“ of this instrument.
And suddenly he felt inspired with thinking on his pure pigeon, his snow-white saint spirit pigeon, bringing him always to new inspiration for his painting music creativity.
And Palma played and played and he tried out this new „Well tempered -12 semi-tons equal-tuning.“

* * *

As they saw this Peony-Gondola vision Palmina was very proud on her Jacopo Palma il Giovane, her painter, her composer, her love-story writer, her deep and only love.

Again she put her head on his side and continued to hear music and it was like that:

*) Well temperament – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Well_temperament

WELL TEMPERAMENT (also good temperament, circular or circulating temperament) is a type of tempered tuning described in 20th-century music theory. The term is modeled on the German word wohltemperiert. This word also appears in the title of

J.S. Bach’s famous composition „Das wohltemperierte Klavier„, The Well-Tempered Clavier.“

„The first circular temperament was described by the organist ARNOLT SCHLICK**) in the early 16th century[citation needed], but „well temperaments“ did not become widely used until the baroque period. They persisted through the classical period, and even survived into the late 19th century in some areas, for example in Italy. [citation needed]
There are many well temperament schemes, some nearer meantone temperament, others nearer equal temperament. Although such tunings have no wolf fifth, keys with many sharps or flats still do not sound very well in tune (due to their thirds). This can contrast chords in which vibrations are concordant with others where the vibrations are not harmonically related. Some theorists [weasel words] have sought to define „well temperament“ more narrowly to exclude fifths wider than pure, which rules out many such schemes.“

**) Arnolt Schlick – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arnolt_Schlick
Arnolt Schlick (July 18?  c. 1455–1460 – after 1521) was a German organist, lutenist and composer of the Renaissance. He is grouped among the composers known as the Colorists. He was most probably born in Heidelberg and by 1482 established himself as court organist for the Electorate of the Palatinate. Highly regarded by his superiors and colleagues alike, Schlick played at important historical events, such as the election of Maximilian I as King of the Romans, and was widely sought after as organ consultant throughout his career. The last known references to him are from 1521

The first circular temperament was described by the organist Arnolt Schlick in the early 16th century, but „well temperaments“ did not become widely used until the baroque period. They persisted through the classical period, and even survived into the late 19th century in some areas, for example in Italy.

This can contrast chords in which vibrations are concordant with others where the vibrations are not harmonically related. Some theorists[weasel words] have sought to define „well temperament“ more narrowly to exclude fifths wider than pure, which rules out many such schemes.
Some well-known well temperaments go by the following names:
Werckmeister temperament (invented by Andreas Werckmeister)
French Temperament Ordinaire
Neidhardt
Kirnberger
Kellner
Vallotti (invented by Francesco Antonio Vallotti)
Young
Some temperament schemes feature numbers of perfect, pure fifths and these give enhanced harmonic resonance to instruments and music on which they are played so that music moves into and out of focus between keys as vibrations lock together or not. Werckmeister features 8 perfect fifths, Kellner 7 and Vallotti 6.
The contemporary composer Douglas Leedy has written several works for harpsichord or organ in which the use of a well temperament is required.[citation needed]

223. Traditional Dialogue of Cultures in Venice

223. Traditional Dialogue of Cultures in Venice

 

picture 01 - Palma_il_Giovane_-_Doge_Pietro_Loredan_Beseeching_the_Virgin_-_WGA16909
picture – Palma il Giovane -Doge Pietro Loredan*) Beseeching the Virgin (Wikipedia)

This Painting by Palma il Giovane is on the big famous Dogan“s Palace (Palazzo Ducale) where always delegations of different cultures officially had a intercultural friendship event as peace DIALOGUE between the mighty Republic of Venice and the business partners from all over the world like Europe, Asia and Africa.

* * *

They continued to dream their Peony Gondola Vision like that:

* * *

„Oh, so much Cultures we have on this world. Fantastic!!!!l „, Palmina said like a young girl with her soft fine voice and continued smiling with this asian-like beautiful eyes:

„…this beautiful different cultures with their different music and art traditions,… fantastic…
our world is so big, I would like to huge it ..“, Palmina said and hugged Palma.

„..this beautiful cultures are often visiting Venice, our mighty Republic of Venice the – R.O.V. and I often play at the welcome concert in the Dogan’s Palace on our San Marco Place…often an artwork from you or from me…“, Palmina said euphoric.

„…From all over the world the representative of their culture are coming and greeting our Republic from Europe Asia, Africa. From Thailand, Vietnam, Bangladesh, China, Cipan (Japan), Korea, Philippines, Russia…Armenia, Cyprus- Byzantium…bringing a message to us of peace and friendship…They want all a peacefull relation, a cultural dialogue to our mighty Republic of Venice and of course good economic relations with us Europeans…“, Palma said very wise.

picture 2-3 – detail of Palmas painting in the Palazzo Ducale (Dogan’s Palace) in Venice

„So it is important that all cultures are in a harmonic peaceful relation…in a good DIALOGUE!
…Palma, didn’t you compose a music dialogue for Chinese lute Pipa (or other Chinese or other Asian Instruments) and Viola da braccio as the Chinese delegation did visit our Republic with their huge Chinese ships, waiting outside the „Lido“, coming with hundreds of guests to bring a peaceful culture program, a cultural exchange dialogue concert? Didn’t you?“

„Oh yes, I will never forget this. It was years ago…Oh, Palmina, my Dialogue for Pipa琵琶 and Viola. Do you remember the begining melody?“, Palma asked.

Palmina took her Lute and plugged slowly and smiling with shining eyes, only a girl or a women has, if she is loving…

G-d-e-a

Palmina smiled to Palma and send to his heart a warm and golden, tender light energy playing her lute.

Palma could feel this also in his deep heart.

After that,now Palma took his Viola and plugged:

c-g-d‘-a‘

„Do you remember, Palmina?“

„Yes, your composition you wrote as Dialogue for my instrument and your instrument…It was dedicated as dialogue between the East Cultures and the West Cultures between the Ming Dynasty representatives and Venice.
Yes, Palma, I remember very good and I love this creation from you very much!“

Palmina gave Palma a tender kiss on his cheek and Palma could feel this.

Now Palma composed deep in his heart a music reflection and variation to the main „Dialogue Music Theme“, the main melody of this dialogue composition like that and Palmina put her head and Palma’s side to hear this music coming directly from Palma’s heart and what she listened was this:
