They continued their Peony Gondola Dream and it was like that:

The Gondola moved soft in the evening waters of the Canale Grande and Palmina put her head on Palma’s side and felt so secure.
During their common Music Vision she felt surrounded by thousands of roses – All the Roses – All the music light roses she saw and felt in her heart!

Palmina wanted to ask Palma for the music score of this music piece and Palma could feel it.
Palma smiled. During that he remembered that today a bird sung at 4 a.m. in the morning bringing Palma a bird message, Palma stood up and looked out of the morning to listen every tweet of Palmina.
(Palmina tried to send him 3 times Messenger and he could feel and hear it).

„Here I have the music score, my Palmina, mia docissima Mia!“

Palmina feels that this music touched her heart very, very much and Palmina looked into Palma’s eyes and Palma looked also into her shining eyes.

„This evening you played so beautiful on my new lute. How do you like it? Is it a good instrument, Palmina?“

„Oh, yes, I love it. It is so nice to play on it. It is a master work – From the best lute maker from Venice…“

Palma took the instrument in his hands lifted it a little bit and said: „This lute is for you Palmina, ordered by the best lute maker of Venice, the most famous in whole Europe, from the whole World!“

„Woooh“, This is for me?“
Her eyes looked like a little deer.
„Oh, thank you! Really? Oh, Palma!
Such a good instrument! Oh, Palma! This is sure the most expensive lute in the world!?“

Palma smiled shy as if he does not know what she means and looked up to the soft evening sky over Venice.
Palmina hugged Palma like a little girl and kissed him shy and tender on his cheeks several times – and: Palma could feel it and smiled.

* * *

The next day Palma il Giovane was at the La Pieta Music School where the orphan girls waited all together in the music rehearsal and dining room.

Palma made it possible that Palmina can give music lessons for the girls as music teacher there at the music school, which is near to her family house, the bakery shop along the cale de la Peieta.

„Now, my dear angels…“, the nun said to all the orphan girls,
„…Signore Palma il Giovane, who composed for us a lot of artworks in the last years is here and he has announced that every girl who is playing or learning music instrument will get new a high quality music instrument made from the best instrument builder from the Republic of Venice!!!“

The girls looked at each other – after a moment of silence they smiled, jumped and cried of joy and luck and made a long applause for Palma il Giovane.

picture 2 – The La Pieta Girls Orchestra playing on their new music instruments

„Graaaaazie! Mille, mille grazie, Maestro Palma il Giovane!!!“

-„Really…we will get new instruments!!! We will be the best girls orchestra of Europe, of the whole world!“

And Palma gave a sign to Palmina to bring the music instruments builder which waited outside.

„Oh, so much new instruments, all for us…“

„This is for me, I play Cello!“
„This is for me, I play the Violin“
„and I play the Lute!
“ I play the harpsichord – oh a new harpsicord – for me!!!“
„…an Oboe for me and for you a Mandolin, look!“
„and there they bring a Viola, and all Viola da Gamba!!“
„Trumpets, Clarinets, a Mono-chord for theoretic music studies!!
„and, and this is a flute for me!!!“, a younger little girl said!

And all their cheeks get light red and all their eyes shined.

Now this seems Christmas in summer.
Palma observed like a father how the orphan girls where lucky.

The nuns where surprised by so much new music instruments and hold their hands over their open mouth and could not believe that Palma il Giovane is supporting these girls orchestra so much.

The elder superior nun whispered to her colleague:“Once we all thought Palma will adopt or marry one of our girls. Now he supports our orchestra….Last month he sponsored us a golden tablet which has the words on it:

‚THE LA PIETA GIRLS ORCHESTRA OF THE REPUBLIC OF VENICE‘

We are so lucky to have him as sponsor. Soon we will make a concert tour to Vienna, Austria with our choir and Orchestra. At the Renaissance Palais Ferstel in the 1.District“

„..Yes, but our girls are really good musicians, aren’t they?“
„And they like Palma’s compositions, so they will perform his artworks…“.
„Sometimes he is like a father, often he comes and tell to the girls good-night-stories for the girls in our rehearsal hall…
Often legends from the Life of Master Titian and his secret love the lute playing musician… she lived here in Venice…“
The older nun listened and nodded understanding.

* * *

Again at the 23 p.m. in the Gondola under the evening stars of Venice:

Palmina plays on her new lute and Palma listened very interested.

No one bought Palmina in her whole life such a beautiful and high quality music instrument not even her father.
But Palma did it. Palma il Giovane said: „I wanted to give you this Lute in the public. But we decided to make our Gondola tour…

Palmina played and Palma listened and the golden light was again between their hearts.

„…Yes…yes….I need these moments of pure music and art inspiration, Palmina. There are so much honor guests in our Palazzo…
I can not concentrate there….sometimes… because I feel so tired after the painting work…“

„…I know Palma, Often the honor guests are asking to see the famous Palma il Giovane, Mihaela said, wondering where you are…
Mihaela told them that you are working on an art inspiration…“, Palmina said with her soft voice.

„Yes, this is the truth…“

And both looked at Palma’s music score and they heard this Peony Gondola Music Vision like that:

322. Neptune-Venus Inspiration (painting and composing)

322. Neptune-Venus Inspiration (painting and composing)

And after they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina put her head on Palma’s side and Palma put his arm around her.
Palma hoped deep in her heart that Palma will compose again a new creation of creativity in music and painting.
Now they continued to see the Vision like that:

* * *

»Look Palmina, here on the evening sky in Venice there is Planet Venus and over her is Planet Neptune, which was new discovered now by
Galileo Galilee ¹). He is afraid of the Church of Jealousy;  he gets Problems with the catholic church if he makes it public that he discovered a new Planet at the evening Sky.«

______________________________________
¹) G. observed Planet Neptune for a long time and much later in the year 1606 he made an exact record in his papers about the existence of Planet Neptune.
_____________________________________

»Oh, my Palma. You know so much about the Planets at the evening Sky…
I remember as you composed the (Pipa-) Lute solo for me ‚Planets at the evening sky‘ and you played it on your Mandolin for me as I was sleeping after you painted me on that little island at Venice²)«

______________________________________
²) Palma composed this music piece once after he painted her on the little island (see Chapter 5 ) describing the planets on the evening sky.
________________________________________

»…I played it also lonely on my Mandolin, lonely on my Piano, lonely on my Viola at home as I heard nothing from you during your concert tour abroad for several years.
I hoped that you can feel it deep inside your heart…«

»Yes, Palma you played it for me and I could feel it in my heart although the administrator of the Church of Social Media made your post for me invisible to earn money with suppression and isolation.
Thank you, Palma. But I played it also for you on my Lute lonely in my room as I was on that island. My Palma, my friend. You take so much care for me.«

You see today at the evening Planet Venus will pass Planet Neptune at 20:30 p.m.

picture 1 - Planet Venus and Neptune are coming nearer.png
picture 1 – Planet Venus and Neptune are coming nearer

»Woooh. That is great. I love you Palma, whatever comes…«

Palma and Palmina looked again to the stars Venus and Neptune, which are on the west horizon.

Palma took Palmina’s talented hand and kissed her tender and her eyes shined and in her eyes was the reflection of planet Venus and Planet Neptune which are coming slowly closer and closer…

It seems that Palmina is Venus and Palma is Neptune (like ones as he had the painting inspiration of the painting ‚Venus and Mars‘)

Side-by-side hand-in-hand they walked at the big promenade along the Riviera dei Schiavoni.

Palma wanted to go with her to bring her home to her family house at the Campo Bandiera e Moro where the baker’s shop of Palmina is.

This time he brings her up to her little room, to her little room over the little garden where a few cicadas are singing their late-evening song..

* * *

Palmina put her lantern on her table and lit some candles so the room was now full of a golden soft light.

Palmina will now allow to paint her nude.

Palma’s eyes are very open now.
He started to paint her naked nude and it looked very nice.

Palma painted her as beautiful Venus.

A lot of girls and women are dreaming to be painted by the Master Scholar of Master Titan, The director of the Titan School.

Palmina feels it that it is a very big honour to be a painting model for Palma il Giovane; and now he paints her as Venus!

And the Planet Venus on the evening sky came slowly nearer to the giant planet Neptune on the heaven this evening:

As Palma il Giovane made a short break Palmina said:

»Palma?«
»Hmmmm?«
»Here I have all the letters from my music fans…Look, pleaase…«

Palma looked and inspected all the letters from Palmina’s music fans:
Palma compared the letters.

»Hmm..This looks like this one…
And this looks like this one…
Always the same text and the same words…
This man has no fantasy.
These letters has no poetic components…«

Palma continued to read :
»…here this man writes: ‚marry me‘
And this. look Palmina.
also at the end:…you beautiful lady….marry me!«
here also:…you wonderful lady. from Venice…marry me!«
and there:…you famous musician lady…marry me!«
oh no here also:…marry me!«

All the letters have the same writing style, the same words and the same signature style as if the author of this stupid letters are one and the same person.

And Palma continued to read:
»Oh, My beautiful Palmina Albina
When can I paint you nude as Venus – Please marry me, Palmina!

Your Giacomo Negretti Palma Giovane«
Palmina smiled as she heard this letter.

»Palmina, I never wrote this letter…I never wrote ‚Negretti‘ to you in a letter….«

»Ooooh, yes, Palma. You did not write this letter to me?«

»No, I wrote a lot of poetic love letters with a lot of music scores, composed for you…«, Palma said and he looked at her beautiful female nude body, which looked so beautiful in this golden candle light.

This is a trap – a trap of the O.S.!!!

»…Ohh, It was a lady trap of the O.S.???«

»Yes, Palmina, they often make this trick to write fake stalking-letters to a special girl of rich families and then they say that this family need a ‚fake-boy-friend‘ to protect the girl and then they try to marry this girls to get more influence in Venice to expand their Church of O.S.«

»Oh, Palma! You saved my life!!! I love you!!!«

321. The secret of Palmina – an evening walk in Venice

IMG_20200126_111154

picture 1 – View of Isola Giorio Maggiore in Venice

And they continued to dream their Peony Gondola dream like that:

* * *

»Oh, Palma…I remember her. She was my Asian music teacher. As she followed the invitation to our Philosophical School in South Italy to come with her Master, Master Lao, I learned to play this music instrument Gu Zhin and Gu Zheng and, and my fascination for Asian music instrument she revived in that time period…«

»Oh, Palmina…let us continue…what ever comes…we have such a strong connection«

»Yes, Palma, let us continue…«

IMG_20200126_143103

picture 2 – view of a Gondola in Venice

And now they saw, sitting side-by-side, together in their Peony Gondola at 23 p.m. and they saw this vision of their time in the 16th century in the year 1582 as Saint Theresa of Avila died.
In this year in Venice as they were much younger than in the year 1610
they saw that Palmina and Palma tried to write a letter to each other:

* * *

» Venice, 1582

Dear Palma,

Today I decided to write a message to you.
For security I send you this text also as Pigeon-Mail, so you can proof if the normal letter has been stolen from your Mail Box, as usually from the Administrator of the Dark Sugar Earth Social Media Church.

We have to meet us for a long evening walk in Venice.
We have to talk to each other.
I have to tell you about something what happen in my live and it is important that you hear the truth and not what others say about me in the public.

Looking forward to see you.

Your Palmina, your little yellow canary bird.

Palmina Albina«

And Palmina took her Lute and played the »Thinking on each other melody« several times.

* * *

In this moment Palma il Giovane stopped drawing at his artwork as he heard this melody deep in his heart.
His heart feels a warm golden light around his heart and he knows now:
his Pigeon is playing the »Thinking on each other melody« several times.

Palmina smiled as she could feel Palma’s reaction.

Palma smiled and Palmina smiled and both could feel it.

What ever happens in their life they would never stop to think on each other.

He wrote:

»Venice, 1582

Dear Palmina!

I feel it, today you wrote a letter to me and the birds outside in the little garden are singing beautiful melodies as messengers for me.
Oh, my Palmina, they told me you want to see me again for a long walk and talk. You want to tell me an important think which happened in your live…
Did I understood the bird correct?
They say a letter Pigeon will come and bring the written message soon.

I am looking forward to hear from you,

my yellow canary bird,
your Palma il Giovane«

* * *

And now they saw them walking in Venice the whole late afternoon till in the late evening, going together, speaking about a very important think in their live:

Now they walk silent a long time side-by side in Venice without talking.

Palma il Giovane waited like an old Chinese Master what Palmina wanted to say to him.
He could feel that Palmina has to say something important, but she did not want to hurt his feelings.

»Palma…«

»Hmmm…?«

»Do you see this ring?«

»Oh, he is new…Does it disturb you when you are playing on your music instrument?«

Palmina suddenly smiled, because Palma seems to say the right words in the right moment.

»Yes, Palma! It disturbs me much.«

Palmina understood the deeper meaning of his words and smiled stronger.

»Yes, exactly about that fact I wanted to speak with you today…«

»What fact?…«

»The fact that I said YES, a few days ago…«

»Yes – to whom?«, Palma said disappointed.

»Oh, no, Palma. It is not like you think…I thought it was a joke…and so I said yes to his question…«

»..but who is he?«

»You know, I was on the concert tour and on my way back I met him and my father asked him to… I mean he is not really my…
…you have to know: As I made my concert career on that island, we got more and more letters from men who wanted to have contact to me and to marry me….«
»Oh, I see..and you made the choice for only one man..«

»Oh, Palma…I did not made my choice…«

»Your father made the choice for your future men?«

»No, no,no, Palma…He asked him to PLAY the ROLE to be my boyfriend only in the public to avoid that one of the music fans wanted to have too close contact for me…«

»I understand…but, why he is now in Venice?«

»Yes, it was a surprise for me and I thought that I have to continue to play his girl-friend after the orders of my father. I thought my father wants that the people of Venice know that I am engaged.«

»Oh, I see, it was only a joke…«

»No, no Palma, this time he made it serious and I have now a Problem…
His family is expecting to marry me to get the citizenship of the Republic of Venice.«

»Oh,,that’s the problem… He is from that island and since 1572 the Republic of Venice has lost its government on that island. The O.S. attacked the country and took the north part of Cyprus Island.«

»Is he from north Cyprus?«

»Yes, Palma, that’s the Problem he is member of the church of O.S.«

»But, Palmina, what’s the problem? If all this was a joke, why is it a problem?«

»The Problem is: He helped me to protect me from the music fans, he played the role of a boy friend in the public – nothing else. And now he wants that we help him to live in Venice. And therefore he said after I said YES, that he wants to get the citizenship of the Republic of Venice.
And he thought I will marry him…as thank you for his help on Cyprus Island.«

»And what does your father say?«, Palma asked like a good friend.

IMG_20200126_143858
picture 3 – 2 Lanterns in Venice

»My father shouted and said ‚Why you did not say NO to this Moslem. Why did you not take Master Giovanni Palma il Giovane, he is a tolerant and good man, he is a successful painter who paints in whole Venice, who paints at the Palazzo Ducale, where the mightiest persons of the world are going in and out….‘, he said and he punished me with his violence«

»And how did your North-Cyprus-fake-boy-friend react after you said him that it was a misunderstanding…?«

Later on the street he punished me violently also violent like father and said »After our religious tradition the women has to obey the husband even she is a Christian«

»I said to him: I am not your wife. – He said that I said Yes in the public. He said he will destroy my music career on Cyprus Island – and he said also that his rich family will support me with money for the concerts if I decide to be his wife.«

* * *

picture 4 – Evening Sunset in Venice (right San Marco Place, left is Isola Giudecca, where Palmina worked as music teacher at the Le Zitelle

And now both were silent.

Palma was now alone with her.

Palmina made a long sigh – Palma made a long sigh.

He put his strong arm around her.
Palmina could feel his warm energy and she felt Palma takes care for her.

Now they went for a long walk in Venice, the atmosphere of the coming evening made them both very harmonic and full of hope.

IMG_20200126_110512

picture 5 – Harmonic evening View in Venice

They did not say any word, but their hearts communicated with a secret golden light.

* * *

After they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palma took his Viola da braccio and played for Palmina also the »Thinking on each other Melody« and it was like that:

281. The Ancient library on Mars

281. The Ancient library on Mars

»Oh, from here did the music come…«, Palmina said very inspired.

The Peony Gondola followed them in the meanwhile 5 meter behind them, along this ancient street to be nearby if they need the Peony Gondola (Their music instruments are also in this Peony Gondola).

01 picture - a view of a little version of a Venetian Gondola (The Peony Gondola is a little bit bigger than this one).png

picture – a view of a little version of a Venetian Gondola (The Peony Gondola is a little bit bigger than this one)

Palma looked to the Peony Gondola and went to pick up his Viola da braccio and his Mandolin.
Palmina followed him and took also her Lutes and smiled.

»Come, Palma, let’s enter this ancient library!«

And Palma and Palmina entered the ancient Mars library.

As they where inside they realized that it was not dark inside.
A lot of colourful lights were inside. Lights in the different colours: yellow, Pink, green, light-blue, violet, red, green, golden light and colours which are unknown on earth .

»Oh, how interesting these colours are…«, Palma said, »I will later try to paint these colours in my paintings and you will help me to create them on earth, Palmina!«

The room was huge and high. It had exact the dimensions of the church »San Zulian« in Venice nearby Palma’s flat.

The style was also a little bit in Renaissance Style but more in Martian-Style.
There were in the walls a lot of books, scriptures, ancient paper rolls, and visual and acoustic media from metallic and glass or crystal- looking material.

The books are written in different languages of different cultures. But Palma and Palmina could not figure out what it is written about.

Between the book library there were paintings in the same size like in the Church »San Zulian« and the huge painting at the top looked similar to the painting style of Palma il Giovane. Paintings from the Mythological historic period, of the »golden age« from history.

»Who painted these huge paintings on Mars here in that beautiful library?«

Palma and Palmina felt suddenly deep in their heart some remembering.

Now they looked at each other very familiar.

So they remembered also the time as they saw each other after the concert in the San Zulian Church after the presentation of Palma’s painting and Palma went to the left side in the corner to speak with Palmina.

They both remembered the light beam from the window and now as they went also to the right back corner of this library they saw also a light coming and moving towards them.
This lights are a higher technology which adapt their light and position to the moving and to the need of the visitor of that library.

Palmina and Palma looked at each other thinking on their remembering.

In front of them there is a big door with a text they could not read.

Along the frame of the door were the old ancient 8 Trigramms in the order of the Cantico-Order.

»Oh, look isn’t that interesting? The 8 Signs are exact in the Order of the old vase the saint beautiful women gave us once?

Isn’t also Planet Mars associated to the IMAGE of THUNDER and to Sphere of Planet Mars in Dante’s ‚Divina Comaedia‘ in your Pipa Solo Nr.5?«, Palmina asked knowing.

Palmina took her music instrument and played the »Cantico-Hymnus« and it was like that:

_________________________________

And suddenly the ancient door opened slowly and an enormous warm and friendly light came out of the open entrance, inviting them to come in.

»You opened the ancient door of the library with the Melody of the Hymnus of Cultures here on Mars, Palmina!«

»Woooh!« she said and jumped in the air.
On Mars there is not such a strong Gravity like on earth Palmina jumped 3 times higher than on earth.

Palma tried to catch her as she was moving back to the planet and he hold her and she is sitting in his arms like in a chair.

»Oh, my Pigeon, you are so light here on Mars.«

Palmina smiled and put her arms around his neck and gave him a tender short kiss.

She said »Pi-«
He answered »Pa-«
She said »Pi-«
He answered »Pa-«
And both »Li-u-to-kiss!«

And they gave each other a lot of »bacci« (ital. »little kiss«).

Palma hold her on his arms and carried her through the door in the room of light.

As they entered this light-room they saw only white warm light.

They felt covered by pure light and suddenly a voice spoke the text of Dante’s Divine Comaedia in the 3rd part, as Dante and Beatrice arrived at the Paradise at the »Primum Mobile« which is pure light.

»Noi siamo usciti fore del maggior corpo al ciel ch’è pura luce «²
_______________________________
²[Dante, Divina Comaedia III (Paradiso), 30, 40-42]
_________________________________

»Oh, Palmina, this is a text from Dante’s Divine Comaedia and his travel through the heavens.«

»Oh, the deep spiritual love of Dante and Beatrice…«

»Yes, my inspiring pigeon…my uncles father , my grandfather named his daughter, the sister of my uncle with the name ‚Beatrice‘ after Dante’s Divina Comaedia«
»Oh, really? Oh, Palma, we are now in a higher dimension library! Look, they are showing us the history of Planet Mars from the beginning…«

»Yes, Palmina really! This is a mental library with visual books. They send us directly the visions in our heart and we can see the history of Mars. Look, there are ancient buildings. And this buildings exist before they had been destroyed in the war. And a lot of pyramids are also created to produce electric energy on a very high frequency so it is not dangerous for living beings.¹«

_______________
¹ Nicolas Teslar invented the high-frequency electric transmission and realized it in his live time on earth.
_________________

»Amazing!« Palmina said and saw how the nature, the sea, the animals, the living being on Mars lived in harmony like the Hymnus of Cultures – Different but united!«

»Yes, Palmina this is a vision!«

»Different Cultures united in one planet!!!«

The light waited till Palma and Palmina spoke about there feelings and thoughts and then the bright warm light continued to show them their light library.

»Oh, look there are music scores !!!«

»And over there is the score of the music with the mandolin solo which I created for you Palmina…«

»Oh,, yes, your music is a part of this Mars library. There are the music score also of the ‚Hymnus of Cultures‘ and the ‚8 Soli for Pipa and Viola‘ and the ‚Cantico delle Creature‘ and look they made a text on your Instrumental part in a very ancient Language and they associated the 8 Signs to this text, look… Maybe you are allowed to write it down, Palma?«

And the light showed Palma the ancient text and the whole music score and Palma started to write down the music score for Palmina.

And the music score is like that:

3 pictures- first part of the »The Ancient Library on Mars and colourful lights«

And after they saw this beautiful Peony Gondola Vision Palmina smiled and was very lucky and she wanted to try out the instrumental part of the music score.

And the Peony Gondola played for her the Piano and Violin Part 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

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

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

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

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.

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.

  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.

»+++ BREAKING NEWS – BREAKING WORLDPRESS NEWS +++
THE HIGHEST COURT OF THE REPUBLIC OF VENICE DECIDED TO SET FREE CARDINAL BORROMÄUS, KNOWN AS THE PROTECTOR OF CHILDREN AND SACRED MUSIC. +++ BREAKING NEWS – BREAKING WORLDPRESS NEWS +++«

Palmina went this morning along the San Marco Place and bought this fresh printed ‚Worldpress‘ newspaper.

She started reading and said: »Look Palma, they write about you…and,and, the Cardinale will today come to Venice….read, read, looook,look, Palma…“

Palma took the newspaper and read:

»…the highest court announced today that „…it IS NOT A CRIME to help too much poor and ill persons… “ The orders given by Cardinale Hell from the Vatican State to arrest the innocent Cardinal Borromaeus are not accepted by the highest court in order that Cardinale Hell is now declared as officially as criminal.

Cardinale Borromaeus did found a lot of institutions to protect poor children and girls from child prostitution in the tradition to the Saint Nicolaus.

„This feast should now be that big every year“ the representatives of the R.O.V., the Republic of Venice announced now, „…the feast is a traditional feast as ‚Thank you‘ for surviving the Pest“ – but now we decided to make it as one of the biggest feast in the year in Venice“.

A BIG BRIDGE WILL BE BUILD

Along the new feast there will be a new long bridge only for the duration of the days of the „Il Redentore feast“.
The people can go along the big bridge to go over the water to the „Church il Redentore“.

* * *

After they read the newspaper standing on the San Marco Place a lot of pigeon had landed around them and looked up to them as if they did understand the newspaper.
Now the pigeons flew to the Gondola which was waiting for them at the other end of the San Marco Place.

Both went there and Palmina and Palma entered a Gondola .Palma helped her to enter the Gondola and smiled.

Palmina smiled and said: »Palma, I am so proud on you. Cardinale Borromaeus will visit our „Le Zitelle Orchestra“ on Giudecca and the „Cantico delle Creature“ will be performed, and, and your painting will be presented at the Chiesa Il Redentore.
Oh, Palma, oh, Palma, what a big feast today will be. Oh, I love you, my painter, my composer, my love letter writer, my children protector….“

And Palma and Palmina looked sideways to the island Giudecca and smiled.
Soon the big traditional ‚Il Redentore festival‘ will start here in Venice.

Palmina put her hand on Palma’s hand very tender and Palma could feel it.
Now he looked at her beautiful smiling face. He realised how much he loves her and the sun made her hairs beautiful.

Slowly the Gondola moved to the other side in the direction of Giudecca Island.
They will have a few hours of rehearsal for the concert today at evening.
The innocent girls came all with their music instruments and also the girls and children choir was there.
As they saw Palma and Palmina coming to the Le Zitelle they waved all from their windows.

„Look, Palma and Palmina are coming to make a rehearsal with us. Let us take all our music instruments and come at the concert stage in the garden.

And all the girls and children came in the Le Zitelle Garden to sit at their place on the stage to be ready to make a rehearsal of Palma’s Hymnus.

How often Cardinal Hell tried to pay millions to stop this music-social projects for children. How often he gave a lot of money to people to sabotage this social projects. But now Cardinal Borromaeus is their strong hand of the heaven to stopp this intrigues against these poor children.

And now they made the rehearsal like that:

At he evening the saint Cardinale Borromaeus came and the fireworks in Venice begun and it looked fantastic like that, so that also painters made paintings of this historic moment in modern civilization – to protect children, art and culture.

225. Happy Birthday, Palma il Giovane!

225. Happy Birthday, Palma il Giovane!

picture 1 -Orazio_Gentileschi_-_Saint_Cecilia_Playing_the_Spinnet.png
picture 1 -Orazio_Gentileschi_-_Saint_Cecilia_Playing_the_Spinnet

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.

picure 4 - drawing by Palma il Giovane

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“ :

175.The white pigeon of Giorgio Maggiore (3)

picture 1 - Presentation of Jesus in Temple« by Palma il Giovanne (Isola Giorgia Maggiore, Venice )

picture 1 – Presentation of Jesus in Temple« by Palma il Giovane (Isola Giorgia Maggiore, Venice)

The Gondolier was waiting for them with the beautiful shining lanterns in the Gondola. He will bring them later, after the walk on this Isola Giorgio Maggiore, to Giudecca Island at the Le Zitelle where Palmina has her 2nd flat and is protected by the Jesuits from her violent father and violent brother.
Other girls at the Le Zitelle have also problems with their fathers and brothers. They are reading their private messages and letters, erasing them and changing their content to isolate them from others. That’s why the girls are living here on Gudecca Island at the Jesuits.
The local authorities do not allow this and have strict laws against this and that’s why some fathers or brothers had been arrested for doing this to their relatives; arrested by the Republic of Venice – the R.O.V. – the mightiest Republic in the 16th century.

Now, not even the Gondolier could see what Palma and Palmina are doing at the secret gardens of Giorgio Maggiore, here where so much famous painters had deep inspirations (Claude Monet, 200 years later, had also big inspirations here on Giorgio Maggiore and painted a lot of paintings here and he painted also this little island).

After a while of silence Palmina asked whispering:
»Palma?«
»Yes, my Music-Angel?«
»You would really paint a white pure Pigeon in your big painting for this Church when it is ready build in a few years¹, as remembering to our spiritual walks and travels with the Gondola in Venice?«


¹ the church was finished in the year 1610 – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Giorgio_Maggiore_(church),_Venice

»San Giorgio Maggiore is a 16th-century Benedictine church on the island of the same name in Venice, northern Italy, designed by Andrea Palladio, and built between 1566 and 1610. The church is a basilica in the classical renaissance style and its brilliant white marble gleams above the blue water of the lagoon opposite the Piazzetta and forms the focal point of the view from every part of the Riva degli Schiavoni.«


»Yes, Palmina, and if we see us again in 400 years we will stand here in front of this painting and we can say this white pigeon I painted to remember our deep spiritual love.«

And they saw now in this Peony-Vision all the paintings which will be painted for this church San Giorgio Maggiore.*)


*) beside the painting »Circumcision/Presentation of Jesus in Temple« – by Palma il Giovane
There are other paintings in the monastery building:
The Last Supper by Jacopo Tintoretto
The Fall of Manna by Jacopo Tintoretto
Entombment of Christ by Jacopo Tintoretto
Madonna enthroned with Saints by Sebastiano Ricci
Risen Christ & St Andrew with Morosini family by Jacopo & Domenico Tintoretto
Adoration of the Shepherds by Jacopo Bassano


They saw the painting of Sebastiano Ricci and Tintoretto and also about Santa Lucia

picture 3 - painting of »Santa Lucia« by Palma il Giovanne

picture 3 – painting of »Santa Lucia« by Palma il Giovane

And they saw also that Sebastiano Ricci (he was later born then Palma) will dedicate the angel with mandolin to the secret deep love to Palma and Palmina.

picture 5 - detail - Sebastiano Ricci painted a little Mandolin angel as remembering of Palmina

picture 6 – painting «Venus and Cupido« by Sebastiano Ricci inspired by the love of Palma and Palmina, symbolised as 2 white pigeons

The saw in their Peony-Vision that Sebastiano Ricci will also be inspired by this future- painting of Palma il Giovane with the 2 white pigeons on the right side (the 2nd pigeon is in the basked) – he studied it very intensive – and painted also two white Pigons in his famous »Venus and Cupido«


¹ Sebastiano Ricci (1659 – 1734) – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sebastiano_Ricci

»Sebastiano Ricci (1 August 1659 – 15 May 1734) was an Italian painter of the late Baroque school of VENICE. About the same age as Piazzetta, and an elder contemporary of Tiepolo, he represents a late version of the vigorous and luminous Cortonesque style of grand manner fresco painting. «


»But it is not easy for a man to be in love with Saint Cecilia…«, Palmina said innocent but very direct.

»Why, Palmina?«, Palma asked like a wise man.

»Saint Cecilia was a saint and a virgin and she wanted to keep her virginity and she wanted only to have a spiritual love relation so it was difficult for a man to marry Saint Cecillia…«

»…Hmm…, but a spiritual love…. if it is really a high dimension love, then it is like two pigeons are marring from heart to heart. They need only the spiritual arrangement of the heaven, nothing else…and this the two pigeons can feel deep inside their hearts«

»I know, Palma, this I mean with ‚It is difficult for a man to be in love with a saint virgin‘. But you, Palma, you are different. You understand the principles of a deep spiritual love. As artists we can live this spiritual love as real and the results of our deep love are great artworks and great thoughts for the culture and history – We will inspire the next generations of artists. Our children are our artworks.«

Palmina and Palma hugged standing in the secret gardens of »Giorgio Maggiore« where no one is watching then; only the planets and stars, the angels and the saint of the heaven can see them; and they smiled down to them, down to planet earth, down to Venice, down to the little small island Isola San Giorgio Maggiore, called in Venetian language »San Zorzi Mazor«.

»My Pigeon…«
»My Palma…«

»My Inspiration…«
»My composer…«

»My composing lute playing angel«
»My secret writer…«

»My yellow canary bird…- Let us work together in the next centuries – if the heaven is allowing this to us – Let’s make this wish«

»My astronomer – Yes, let us work together – Let us make this wish – Dreams come sometimes through – All we do in our artworks will be connected through our Peony Gondola, Yes, Palma – Yes Palma, – I love you and I feel it: you respect how Saint Cecilia is…«

»Yes, Palmina, I respect you…«

And in a common Vision they saw the big painting Palma il Giovane should paint for this church on that small island.

EPSON DSC picture

picture 7 – »Presentation of Jesus in Temple« by Palma il Giovane (Isola Giorgio Maggiore, Venice )

Palma hold her head with his strong hands, but tender, and kissed her and her beautiful lips, very soft and slow and short.
But in their heart the kiss started also, they could feel it, and this beautiful feeling they kept in their heart, even after the short tender kiss.
And this feeling stayed for day and night.
Both looked at the Vision of the painting and they saw that Palma should paint the Pigeon held by a women and the Pigeon seemed to smile with its eyes. And an other Pigeon in the basked

picture 9 - white Pigeon (detail) by Palma il Giovanne

picture 9 – white Pigeon (detail) by Palma il Giovane

After this beautiful inspiration Palma and Palmina went long along the green gardens and sometimes they heart an bird or a cicada or a tiny little mouse moving.

It was a beautiful »inspiration-walk« here on that island. All the monks are now sleeping in their monastery and there was no light in their windows any more. It was now very late and they went back to the Gondola with the shining lantern where the Gondolier was respectfully waiting.

Now the Gondola moved very slow to the neighbour island Giudecca where after a few meters the »Le Zitelle« Building was. Palma brought Palmina up to her flat in the 3rd floor and she played again on her lute for him and on her harpsichord like the Saint Cecilia. Palma made again some paintings of her and continued to paint on the white pigeon.

Later he asked her:
»Do you like the white Pigeon? Should I paint her like that in the future painting?…I will also paint a second Pigeon in a basked on that painting. The two Pigeons are we…The basked represents the Peony Gondala«

Palmina smiled and was lucky to feel connected with Palma’s heart.

Palmina sat on her little bed looking through her window to the San Marco Place, which is far a way but some lanterns are shining also in the night there.
Palma sat also on her bed. Palmina took Palma’s right hand and both looked long through the window.
Palma remembered her words about the virginity of Saint Cecilia and respected her.
»Do you know the love relation and legend between the unicorn and the virgin, Palma…?«

Palma smiled and looked to her side and he put his arm around Palmina.

Now they are sitting and Palmina’s little small bed, looking in the direction of San Marco Place at the Dogan’s Palace where still hundreds of candles are shining through the windows.
Yes, now they are sitting holding their hands like two little children who became deeply loving friends.

Palmina turned her smiling face to his side and she was lucky to have a loving friend like him – A loving friend that is understanding her deep spiritual secret.

»Look, I will also paint a clerical person looking like a pope with a white Pileolus on his head, looking from behind to the fresh born baby…Hmm, he looks as if this fresh born baby is his…«

»Oh…why that? …this is also a symbol of something real of our century…hmm, isn’t it, Palma? You always painted something from the present in your images…«

(to be continued…)

»Oh wonderful, Palma. A whole cosmic Organ music piece, played only for me. I love you. I am so proud of you.«

»In around 400 years, on the 7th of December of the year 2018 will be a special day: Mars passing the Neptune moon system«

And Palmina hold Palma’s right hand and he could feel it and Palma was lucky.

»2 days ago you played for me on your Pipa. Thank you, Palmina. My heart could feel it. It was a wonderful music. From your heart to my heart. I love you my Inspiration, my Saint Cecilia, my Pipa princess Wang Chao-chun. 王昭君«

»Oh, it is ok. I love you too. Even we can not see us we can think on each other every day, if you also want, Palma… my painter, my composer, my writer, my astronomer. Hm, I think you are a little astronomer….«, Palmina answered smiling.
»Neptune is the planet of music and art…«, Palma kissed Palmina, tender soft and short.

Now the Peony Gondola started to move to a new vision in 400 years:

And they saw at 23 o‘ clock together in their Peony Gondola suddenly the same astronomic event from three cosmic perspectives:

»Look at that three perspectives:…«, Palma il Giovane explained to his beloved Palmina

» 1. View from the moon Phobos¹ of Planet Mars. Phobos is moving within 7,5 hours one time around Planet Mars (3x times a Mars-day or earth day).

2. View from moon Triton of planet Neptune. This moon Triton² has the same size like planet Mars and also a thin atmosphere. (We can say a planet like Mars is moving around Neptune)

3. View from moon Despina of Neptune. Despina is much nearer to Neptune as Triton and is moving around Neptune very fast…«

Palmina put her head and his side and he put his arm around her during this Peony Vision in their Peony Gondola.
And suddenly they heard in their vision a music which was inspired by Palma’s Saint Cecilia and Saint Lucy. Saint Cecilia inspired this composition like a little tweeting yellow canary bird.

Both felt the inspiration:

¹ Phobos – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phobos_(moon)

»Phobos (/ˈfoʊbəs/ FOH-bəs, /-bɒs/ -boss,[4] from Greek Φόβος; systematic designation: Mars I) is the innermost and larger of the two natural satellites of Mars,[5] the other being Deimos. Both moons were discovered in 1877 by American astronomer Asaph Hall.

Phobos is a small, irregularly shaped object with a mean radius of 11 km (7 mi)[1] and is seven times as massive as the outer moon, Deimos. Phobos is named after the Greek god Phobos, a son of Ares (Mars) and Aphrodite (Venus)«

² Triton – Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triton_(moon)

»Triton is the largest natural satellite of the planet Neptune, and the first Neptunian moon to be discovered. The discovery was made on October 10, 1846, by English astronomer William Lassell. It is the only large moon in the Solar System with a retrograde orbit, an orbit in the direction opposite to its planet’s rotation.[2][11] At 2,710 kilometres (1,680 mi)[5] in diameter, it is the seventh-largest moon in the Solar System. Because of its retrograde orbit and composition similar to Pluto’s, Triton is thought to have been a dwarf planet captured from the Kuiper belt.[12] It has a surface of mostly frozen nitrogen, a mostly water-ice crust,[13] an icy mantle and a substantial core of rock and metal. The core makes up two-thirds of its total mass. The mean density is 2.061 g/cm3,[5] reflecting a composition of approximately 15–35% water ice.

Triton is one of the few moons in the Solar System known to be geologically active (the others being Jupiter’s Io and Europa, and Saturn’s Enceladus and Titan). As a consequence, its surface is relatively young, with few obvious impact craters. Intricate cryovolcanic and tectonic terrains suggest a complex geological history. Part of its surface has geysers erupting sublimated nitrogen gas, contributing to a tenuous nitrogen atmosphere less than 1/70,000 the pressure of Earth’s atmosphere at sea level.[6] It is the second-largest planetary moon in relation to its primary, after Earth’s moon.«
