266. Lao tze saves innocent musicians at HAN-GU-Pass(函谷關 / 函谷关)

After they saw this Peony Gondola Vision they heard suddenly a soft beautiful female voice crying:

* * *

The female voice cried:

»Father, father! Do not make violence against me!!!!

…No…
Please, do not stroke my body…
…Noooo…
Please do not again such violence.
I am a musician…
Don’t hurt me so much, father, father…
What did I do wrong…?«

But they did not see what happened.

* * *

After that they saw this Vision suddenly they saw this:

* * *

On the sky, at the clouds in white colours Master Lao appeared shining.
Master Lao smiled and beside him was a beautiful intelligent female musician with an Asian music instrument.

A voice said: „I saved her life and she plays the Gin music instrument.
She became my music master student. She will follow my spiritual way in the west with a lot of others to meet the West-Music-Master. So I will send a messenger who will learn his language being able to translate my letter for him, asking him if he can send an official invitation to me and my students and musicians to enter his country and to visit his famous well known philosophical school.“

* * *

Then the Peony Gondola moved to the time of Lao tse and
landed at HAN-GU-Pass (函谷關 / 函谷关).
Now they saw this:

A group of female musicians and female singers gave in the last days beautiful concerts in the kingdom and had a lot of success.
They travelled from town to town after they get an official invitation to play as very famous and fine concert event of the town.

Now the Master of the HAN-GU-Pass (函谷關 / 函谷关) send an official invitation for the artists to play in their famous representative palais of the town.

Master Lao was also on his way and was also invited to this concert.

Full of expectation he comes there and wanted to send his new letter from there to the famous founder of his philosophical music school in far, far WEST.
Here he can stay a while till the answer from his old, old friend will come back to this west-china border station of the HAN-GU-Pass.

But a religious extremist group, spying all over the country found out that Master Lao will attend the concert at the famous palais at HAN-GU-Pass and they tried to plan an evil strategy against the meeting of the famous musicians and Master Lao.

* * *

In a secret meeting those members of an illegal religious extremist group meet and talked like that:

»…we can make intrigues against this concert. We have only to give orders to arrest them as criminals even they are innocent. We can use the laws for this…«

»Ai ya, good idea, I am working at the government as high office person and can use my mighty position to cancel the musicians from the program…Is the program printed yet?…«

»Oh, yes the concert invitation was sent all over the region in all parts along the kingdom. All will expect that Xie Ming will play the solo part in the concert.
We have to arrest them all and give orders to…
…and our religion will be expanded also in this culture here…60% of our religious members have high positions in the government. So we will soon influence all others – Ha,ha,ha.
Oh, our religious founder is great…«

»..Yes, our religious founder, he is great….«

»…great…«, all members said.

Lao tze was on his way to the Palais and made small eyes to see the group of musicians which seems to come in colourful beautiful traditional Asian cloth.

But what is happening to the musicians?
He saw that they are arrested by the police. But why?

265. Back to Venice after a long time

265. Back to Venice after a long time

And after they played together 40 minutes of this composition in their Peony Gondola hour at 23 o’clock, Palma and Palmina continued to dream their Peony Gondola Dream and now they saw this:

* * *

Palma looked at the horizon expecting not only the new day.

„I am so looking forward to see her again“, he said holding his Mandolin.

The time seemed to be now running after an other dimension.

„Maybe she is in 8 minutes here where I am standing. But every minute is like a whole day for me – Oh, Palmina, my Pigeon…“

And Palma composed in his heart a music inspiration for two instruments being inspired from that feeling of expectation during he made fast a drawing of the skyline of Venice in the slowly rising morning.

As they saw this Peony Gondola vision Palmina put her head to Palma’s side.
And Palma put his arm around her.

„My Palmina…“

„My Palma…“

Palmina hold Palma’s left hand and he could feel it. Palma smiled.

„Look in my music score: The second bar after [Nr.6] there is a Pipa-Chord (A-D-E-a) in the Piano Part, look here, Palmina.“

Palmina looked, understood and smiled.

Now both heard they new music inspiration sitting together in their Peony Gondola side-by-side and it was like that:

Palma could feel the music Palmina played on her Lute for him.

Palma smiled. He heard her playing in his inner heart.

* * *

As they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina asked: „What did you do after I played this Melody? Hmm Palma?“

Palma looked shy and answered: “ I…I…I heard that you played an other Melody after you Played our ‚I miss you melody…and then…“

Palma was shy.
Palmina smiled and asked:“ Hmmm? What did you do in our Peony Gondola hour after I played the melody….Hmmmm?“

„Later, I went to the San Marco Place…“, Palma said and they continued to see their Peony Gondola dream and they saw this:

* * *

02 Gondola along the Big Promenade

02 Gondola along the Big Promenade

Palma went in the direction of the San Marco Place, but he has to turn left and go then a while a short way along the big Promenade ‚Riva di Siavoni‘ till he arrived on San Marco Place.

03 San Marco Cathedral

03 San Marco Cathedral

He went a few time along the San Marco Place to see the two Pigeons.

04 Dogans Palace on San Marco Place

04 Dogans Palace on San Marco Place

But now he felt that Palmina’s ship is coming.

05 view to the water side on San Marco Place

He went back to the water side of the San Marco Place to look if Palmina’s Ship is visible.

The moon made a bright light over Venice and the stars shined friendly.
The lagoon water was calm and the reflection of the moon and the stars looked peacefully.

07 view over the Lagoon in the east direction
07 view over the Lagoon in the east direction

* * *

Palmina went up to see the calm sea on her ship, to fell the soft wind in her beautiful hairs, to see Venice slowly coming.
She played very beautiful on her lute and smiled.

08 first colours bevor the sun rise
08 first colors on the south east horizon before the sun rise

Slowly the horizon turned brighter and in a while the sun will rise over the sea.

Normally the ships coming from outside had to wait up to 40 days in the 16th century till they where allowed to enter the lagoon water of Venice.

But Palma il Giovane could arrange it that the ship which was on his way to Venice could pass without any waiting.
Maybe the Republic of Venice knows also who Palmina’s relatives were and the ship and its passengers were threat as V.I.P.s.

The officers looked surprised as the ship passed the control-harbour near todays „Lido“

„Oh, Look a princess is lute playing… This is the V.I.P. ship we should allow passing and entering the waters of Venice“ –

„How beautiful she plays…“

The Officers looked wondering and looked behind the slowly moving ship.

* * *

Palma standing on the San Marco Place looked expecting in the East direction and played on his Mandolin.

Palmina played coming with her ship – Palma played waiting with his Mandolin – and the are now coming closer and closer – in their hearts there is no physical distance

Slowly, far on the east-south horizon the sun raised bright and the ship of Palmina was visible.

A few birds flew at the morning sky.

In a few minutes the ship will stand directly on the left side of the left column at the San Marco Place.
Palma smiled and played his Mandolin.

* * *

As they saw this beautiful Peony Gondola Vision Palmina took her Pipa Lute and Palma took his Viola da braccio.

„Let us play our ‚8 Soli for Pipa and Viola'“, Palmina said innocently.

263. Remembering the »I miss you melody«

263. Remembering the »I miss you melody«

And as they moved under the stars of Venice with their Peony Gondola Palma said to Palmina: »Palmina?«

»Hm?«

»Did you remember the time I missed you so much as you lived on that far east island and made your concert tours?«

»Yes, Palma, yes. I could feel that you stood under my little window in the „Calle de la pieta“ and played the „I miss you melody“ as Mandolin solo…«

Now they saw this remembering Peony Gondola Vision:

* * *

Palma finished today at the early evening his painting work at the Palazzo Vendramin. Palma painted Palmina secretly in a painting and he wanted to look if there are any new news by her Pigeon from that east island concert tour.

Palmina send today a new letter to Palma but the administrators of the Church of Social Media and its „privacy criminals“ read the letter and erased it.

Palma felt this but he transformed his feelings into creative music.
As he arrived in the little street – the „Calle de la pieta“ where Palmina’s little room was in the house of her family, the baker’s shop on the „Campo Bandiera e Moro“ – he put his painting utensils on the floor and took his little Mandolin, looked up to her open window and played for her, although he knows that at this moment she was not back from her concert tour, but maybe the ship arrived earlier, in this case she would hear his music.

And Palma played like that:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeM3qMrz0nT2h8FYPG5zEMQ

* * *

In this moment Palmina felt his music and smiled and she could hear the sound of this music in her inner heart.

She opened her eyes and looked through her little window on the ship which will arrive in a few hours at Venice.

She looked at the bright shining stars and the reflection of the friendly looking moon on the water of the silent sea around Venice and it seemed to shine brighter.

»Yes, now Palma thinks about me and he plays our „I miss you melody“«, Palmina smiled thinking on her Palma il Giovane.

Palmina took her little but heavy Pipa-lute and plugged very, very soft also this melody at this 23 o’clock-hour.

Now the stars seemed to shine more brighter and there was visible a shooting star.

Palmina smiled and did a secret wish closing her eyes.

* * *

In this moment Palma could feel this secret music moment and looked also up to the stars over Venice.

He saw two white Pigeons flying in the direction to the San Marco Cathedral.

They flew exactly along the line which the „Calle de la Pieta“ is pointing: In the direction to the San Marco Place, where the San Marco Cathedral is.

262. Palma’s Gondolieri musicians

262. Palma’s Gondolieri musicians

picture 2 - View from the big Promenade to the »Le Zitelle« on Giudecca Island.jpg

  picture – Giudecca at evening in Venice

»You are right, Palma«, Palmina said proud, »no one can take this Venice in our hearts away from us…«

They hold their hands and went slowly in the soft evening which was slowly coming and the light of the sky turned colourful inspiring.

Colours which can be important for a painter…

* * *

Palma had an idea and took some music score he composed and without any explanation the Peony Gondola moved for a short while 300 or 400 years in the future.
Palma saw a few musicians playing something and wrote down the music making a copy.

After that the Peony Gondola moved back to the 16th century at this romantic special evening walk at Giudecca.

And they continued to dream and they saw this:

* * *
During Palma and Palmina walked in the south direction they saw a few Gondolieri sitting on the street with their music instruments.

Palma said to Palmina:»Wait here, Palmina. I have a surprise for you…«

Palmina looked shy and waited.

Palma went to the 5 musicians and asked them something whispering.

„Can you play this music?“

„Fa bene Signore, as you will, we can play your composition.
For your bella Signorina, hmmm?“, said one of the Gondoliers.

Palma smiled and the musicians took the music sheets and they started to play Palma’s composition which he played for Palmina once as Mandolin solo being with her alone in the Peony Gondola.

Palmina looked smiling surprised and listened.

»Oh, Palma. My Palma, my composer and painter. Such a nice surprise.«, Palmina said with her fine soft voice.

And now Palma gave the musicians the music score from music which is from the time 300 or 400 years later.

»Oh, what’s that…«
The musicians looked surprised a little bit desperate but finally they found orientation in the music score.

»Hm, never played such music…Ok, let’s try this…
From where did you get this music score…?
…fa bene (ok), lets try it“

And the 5 Gondolieri started to play this with their music instruments (Mandolin, Violin, Viola da braccio, Mandola, Lute)
And is was like that:

VIDEO: (5 Gondolieri version of a music from 300 or 400 years later) https://youtu.be/kPnbI7swkNk


* * *

During they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina said:»Oh, Palma what a music surprise. This is the music we will hear in 300 or 400 years if we meet us again…
Thank you for this beautiful music surprise to me….«

»Yes, a little thank you that you played my compositions for me. You remember the 8 Soli for your instrument, 40 minutes of music….«

»Oh, yes I remember, a few years ago, the Spring Melody in the solo Nr. 4…«

As they listened this music Palmina put her head on Palma’s side and the Peony Gondola started to move along the side of Giudecca island where they made their evening walks and then the Peony Gondola took off to flew soft and slow under the evening sky of Venice.

They saw all the beauty of Venice in these moments.

Palma smiled and Palmina smiled.

Since Palmina read Palma’s love letter Nr. 261 short before 11 p.m. yesterday, both are feeling a warm light in their hearts.

Yes, the Peony Gondola connects them beyond time and space.

„I have to paint this beautiful orange colour in my painting about saint lucy“, Palma said inspired.

Palma pointed from their Gondola to the heaven and to the tower on San Marco Place.
Palmina smiled because she inspired him to be creative.

After they saw this Peony Gondola Vision they saw this;

* * *

At the next evening they walked along the Giudecca Island to speak about their future in Venice and they hugged during they walked.

„Yes, let us stay in Venice in our hearts…“, Palma said.

„Yes, Palma. In my heart I am allways with you in Venice. This nobody can take us away, not even the administrators of the church of social media.“

And they walk along Giudecca and went together.

261. Palmina’s and Palma’s change beyond time and space

 

IMG_20190522_101351

  picture 1 – Tower at San Marco Place in Venice

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

Palma smiled because he could feel her sympatic energy and good thoughts.

Plamina said to Palma il Giovane smiling with her fine soft voice:“Oh, Palma, today I wrote also a message to you…“

„Yes a message bird sung today beautifully your message at my window in Venice.“, Palma answered.

„…I pray that we can come together, if not possible in this century, that the heaven will allow us to be together for a time maybe in the 18th century.

And suddenly they saw a saint virgin looking like Saint Princess Miao Shan from the 7th century.
She hold her hands praying and it seems that she showed them a Peony Gondola Vision in Arnstadt. They saw the first 2 months of music friendship and going together in the higher forests along the „Jungfernsprung“ to look at the landscape from the top of the hill.
They saw in the Peony Gondola Vision how they coming nearer and nearer speaking about art and music.
Palmina learned his composition and he composed pieces for lute and also for Sopran.
They saw that she sung in the Church of the city Arnstadt and all where surprised by the singing women and called her „frembte Jungfer“.
And Bach made it official and he wanted to marry this talented inspiring musician.

They saw that Bach married his first love finally  Maria Barbara in the little Church of Dornheim.

They saw that they will have maybe 8 children, a few would die, but they saw also that the time is maybe only a certain number of years possible.

„Palmina, would you accept this possible change to see Palma again?

Otherwise you could only see him in 300 or 400 years only for 8 minutes and you will have letter contact for 2 years, but it is not certain which possible way in the future will be.“ a mystic female voice spoke to them.

Palmina hugged Palma and said: „Oh, look Palma we can see us in the future. We will get our change if we wait….“

Palma was again surprised and looked wondering and smiled about Palmina’s words.

Now the Peony Gondola moved slowly through Venice.

IMG_20190529_124716

  Picture 2 – Venice at night, seen from the Peony Gondola

Palmina touched Palma carfully and tender on his feeds and Palma could feel it and he smiled.
Palmina kissed him on his right cheek  and touched carefully his right arm.
Also this could Palma feel in this moment.
The Peony Gondola connects them, so even they would live on different places in the world they would every day think on each other.

And after they saw this beautiful Peony Gondola Vision Palma and Palmina smiled and sat side by side in their Peony Gondola.
„Palma?“
„Today I send you again a Messenger? Did you receive my Message?“, Palmina asked full of love in her voice.

„Yes today I could feel your heartfelt positive thoughts and I felt that you wrote a letter to me. It inspires me.
But I did not receive any written message.
This means that the administrators of the church of social media and its criminals did erase it after they read it…
But your love I could feel in my heart and your positive energy and a bird in the Gardino of Venice, where a I was, sung your bird message for me and I could understand it.

Yesterday, I could feel your hand holding my hand, but it was earlier than 23 p.m.. Sometimes you are earlier then our Peony Gondola time.“
„Yes, Palma sometimes I am tired because of doing rehearsaling on my lute and I go to bed sleep earlier…But I never forget to think on you….“, Palmina whispered in his ear.
