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.

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