And after that they continued to dream:

A few days later the spend also their secret time on that little island.
After Palma painted again Palmina and she played a solo on her instrument for him they took their way back with their Peony Gondola.
Slowly the Peony Gondola moved towards the San Marco Place at this special night.
Left hand there is Giudecca Island and right hand there is Island Giorgio Maggiore.
Palmina hold Palma’s right hand and Palma could feel it. Both smiled and again the golden light was between them.

»What do you think I would write to you if I would now send you a Letter Pigeon with happy new year greetings from my island?«
Palma smiled and took a sheet of paper and started to write and Palmina looked interested holding her lantern to give him light during he was writing.

»Giudecca Island, 31th December 1609, 23 p.m.
I am always thinking on you.
I want to ask you if you can send me a copy of your music score, your new creation…
I love your creations so much…«

Palma smiled as he wrote this.
»…I can’t wait to see you again after thousands of years.
Now I know it, I was your female Master Scholar as Master Lao came to south Italy to visit our family and our famous Philosophical and Music school.
Master Lao and you had a good friendship and you could exchange west wisdom and east wisdom and knowledge about the secrets of music of the west and the east music tradition and also about the therapeutical possibilities about composing music.
And Master Lao said to me, „Myia, you are the best student of your Master beside Teano. You will see him again and he will compose for you…even in thousand years and also much later…“
I never forget Master Lao’s wise words. And I liked his secretary and master student playing the Gu zin music instrument. She taught me to play an Asian Monochord-looking-like-music-instrument (It had a lot of strings).
And she learned from me the European music instruments.
Palma, I can’t wait to get a new music score from you.
I love to play it and I know that you can feel if I am playing on my instrument, even I play it alone in my little room and no one, except your heart, is listening to me.
I wish you a happy new year!
I hope to see and to hear you again after such a so long time.
your yellow canary bird,
your Palmina Albina
PS: This year Student Heinrich Schütz is coming to Venice to study at Master Gabrieli. At the Epiphany feast he will come to listen at the San Marco Cathedral and I am looking forward to hear there your Aria „Benedictus“, which you composed for your Cousine Mihaela«
