And Palma could feel deep in his heart that Palmina is thinking on him and, sending him maybe 4 times messages  on facebook messenger.

And now at 23 p.m. they dreamed to be together in their Peony Gondola.
Palmina touched Palma’s right arm and Palma could feel it.
Palma smiled. A warm golden light energy.
Palmina also smiled and they saw now this Peony Gondola Vision:

* * *

21th century in Venice.

Palma and Palmina are goning side by side, hand in handy slowly romantic along the beautiful city of Venice.

„Plama?“
„Hmm?“
„Are we dreaming, no Tourists in Venice…“

„Yes, we both are dreaming. But this is the real Venice during the Corona – Virus epidemic in Europe, Asia, America, Africa…“

„…Oh, I see, we are here in our dreams but in the real Venice. Look there is the Rialto Bridge…

…All shops ar closed, also the market“, Palmina said shy with her soft voice.

„All over the world it is forbidden to leave the own home – Corona Virus Pandemic“, Palma.explained.

„…Oh, like we have it now at home…
But we are allowed to walk together in our Peony Gondola Dream…Oh, Palma..“
And Palmina showed her her handy with all her hearts and smilies she sent him with Facebook messanger.

Palma smiled and said that he could feel her positive energy from heart to heart.

Palma looked ad his Messenger and there was nothing on his display.

„They erased my messanges to you…the administrators from facebook messenger…“, Pamina said with a sigh in her words.

   picture 2 – closed marked beside the Rialto Bridge in Venice (positon of Palmina’s marked stand  in the 16th century)

Now the crossed the big and beautiful Rialto Bridge.
At the other side there is the traditional marked beside the little church with the 24h display – all shops there are closed.

„Here you sold the little fine white breads in the 16th century…I remember…“

„Oh, yes, Pama I also remember !

„…and you played always on your Venetian lute…“

„…often I played a creation of you and the People bought more breads as I played your Melodies…I was so proud to have always new creations from you, my Pama, my painter, my composer, my big old love…“

And Palmina startd to give a soft kiss on his cheek, shy like al little yellow canary bird. Palma took Palmina and hugeed her.

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

  * * *

The next morning Palma opened at the early morning his window to his little garden-view.
It is rainy and cloudy, darker as usually, sometimes a wind touches Palma’s face.

Never a bird would sing at this weather, but: suddenly a little bird sat on a roof and started to make music  very sweet and loud, sweet and innocent.
The bird sung a music message from Palmina directly to Palma’s heart.

Now he heard in his heart that Palmina is playing the „Thinking on each other Melody“ which Palma composed once for her. She should play it if she is thinking on him.

Palma smiled and huged Palmina in his thoughts and send her also some heart-to-heart kisses as answer to her’s in his last dreams.

Now he remembers the talk of Michelangelo and Master Titian in the year 1563 in Venice like that:

* * *

„…and I had a lot of intrigues to face in Rome because I had to paint the huge artwork in the famous Sistine Chapel…“, said Michelangelo.

„Oh, really? I know these problems here also in Venice. What helped you to overcome these problems – Contesina Medici?“

„Yes, yes – Tessina! My deep inspiration, my deep love, my reason why I continued to paint on this Creation paintings in Rome…I still love her…“, Michelangelo said with a deep sigh in his voice,
„…Pope Julius II allways asked me in the Sistine Chapel:’When you will come to an end?‘ And I answered  always: ‚When I am finished!‘
Sometimes it was sad and Tessina helped me with inspiring me and calming down and encouraging me…
Years later her brother became the new Pope Leo and he payed me good to finish the huge tomb of Pope Julius the II in Rome in Saint Peters Dome.But Tessina arranged it for me….“

„…Yes, I understand you Master Michelangelo…My secret love (he looked on the stage), my secret inspiration, she helped me also all the years with her music lute playing concerts. There is a healing energy in her music. I hope that she will have a Master Student and her way of music therapeutic talent will be learned by someone in the future.“

Master Michelangelo and Master Titian looked now silent at Palma’s fast drawing of the scene on the little wodden stage.

Michelangelo nodded agreeing as if he wants to say: „Yes, Palma is a talent…“.

Little Palmina tried her first tones on the lute and the beautiful lady said: „Oh, well done! You should learn this instrument. I feel you are talented and interested to learn music…“
Palmina smiled shy and had light-red cheeks.

Palma il Giovane smiled and started with an applause and Titian and Michelangelo started also to applause.

* * *

After they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina put her head to Palma’s side and Palma huged her.

„Look, I composed a 2 minutes Lute Solo for you, my sweet inspiration“, said Palma.

And Palmina showed him her heart which she send him today from her handy.

And the music score was like that:

„Look Palmina the stars at the evening sky…“

Palmina put her head on Palma’s side and Palma put his arm around her.
Later, at 23 p.m., as their souls met again in their Peony Gondola, Palmina could get the whole music score of Palma’s new music creation.

She looked very impressed at the music score and was lucky; so she hugged Palma with her whole love.

And suddenly they heard the music of this creation again and it was like that:

VIDEO: „Longing – Sehnsucht“ for Violin and Piano by Gerald Spitzner – https://youtu.be/rNNzpGZsz48

 

She gave Palma several tender kisses on his right cheek and a very long kiss on the right side, and: yes, and Palma could feel it and he smiled. It felt as if she did this for an eternal time.

„So beautiful, Palma! You touched deeply my heart. I will never forget this music inspiration, my Palma. my composer, my painter, my astronomer, my writer….“

After Palmina’s sweet compliments Palma il Giovane felt to be like an Indian Peacook.

picture 2 · Indian Peacook.jpeg

picture 2 · Indian Peacook

Palma felt all as if she is direct beside him in the Peony Gondola and again: there was this golden light between their hearts.

„You can play it with your instrument… you see, the instrumental parts have middle, deep and very high passages… What about playing it Violin, Piano and your Instrument for special parts?“

„Oh, I will try several parts of it on my instruments. Oh, Palma I love it so much!“

Amd again: Palma felt like an Indian Peacook and smiled.

And Palmina tried to play it on her instrument several times.

And Palma remembered that , today a bird sung in the morning in the little garden a wonderful melody.
For Palma it was a message from Palmina.
„Yes, Palma I send you a heart-to-heart message via this bird messenger!“

„…and,and, I have composed for you 4 pages of our „Dialogue, look my sweet Pigeon! “

And Palmina looked also at this music score which Palma started to compose at San Marco Place.

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.

VIDEO: https://youtu.be/Dum0FaJUkpw

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:

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

picture 1 – view of the different places where composer Gabrieli and composer Monteverdi placed his several choirs (often 3 or 4) and instrumental groups within the same composition in this San Marco Cathedral in Venice

After Cousine Mihaela sung so beautiful her Sopran Aria, Master Gabrieli stood up from the Organ to conduct several Choirs.

They sung also a composition of Gabrieli composed for several choirs and instrument groups, standing at different positions in the Church Basilica San Marco in Venice.

»It sounds to be like in heaven!«, Giulia, Palma’s younger daughter said.
Palma was lucky that his daughter’s are interested in arts and music. Giulia is also making progress in her study of painting in the Titian academy.
Giulia is finishing Palma’s painting with landscapes, trees, the buildings etc… in the background part of his paintings.
Palma smiled to his Giulia proud.

From all directions, from up left and from up right, there is coming choir- and ensemble music.

»Did Master Gabrieli compose this music piece for 4 choirs, standing on 4 different positions in our golden Basilica?«, Palma thought and looked around the golden Basilica to find the place where the musicians are making wonderful music.

During the music he begun to think about the recent private concert in Palma’s flat with its big private concert hall: »Hm, Heinrich Schütz could play the Harpsichord at this concert… Hm, hm, and Palmina could play the Lute part…
…at the actual performance of Claudio Monteverdi’s¹) L’Orfeo²) in our palace on San Marco Place, in the 2nd floor.
There will be special honour guests of our republic of Venice.
Hm, hm, hm,… and if Claudio Monteverdi says that he is a brilliant musician, then I can tell this positive words about Schütz as musician to Master Gabrieli at our next tea time meeting…«, Palma thought silent and smiled.

Palmina smiled because she also thinks »That is a good idea, Palma…«

»..how can I make Heinrich Schütz to be not only Master Gabrieli’s music student, but to be his Master Student?
Maybe with this idea…!«, Palma il Giovane thought.

There are a lot of music students coming with money to study in Venice, to study music or to study painting; but to be a Master student, this is a big privilege.

You have not only to be a very, very good music student, you have to be also choosen by the Master himself.

* * *

As they saw this Peony Gondola Vision, Palmina and Palma sat beside in the Peony Gondola at 23 p.m.

Palma could feel that Palmina’s left hand ring finger is painful because of doing rehearsal so much.

Palma took her left hand and kissed her tender and soft to heal her hand and her ring finger.

Palmina smiled shy and her pain was gone.

»Palmina?«

»Hm?«

»You are preparing a new concert?«

»Yes, Palma, my Master. I want also to play a composition of you in my next concert and I send you a messenger to inform you.
Hm, but it seems that the Administrators of the church of social media have stolen my letter to you…«

»Palmina…« and he kissed her hand again soft and tender, full of love and light, full of golden light, »…in my heart I felt your positive thoughts towards me. In the nature a little bird sung a melody from you and I listened to the bird lucky. I am very lucky that you want to play a composition of me.«

»…you remembered that Master Lao said to you 1000 years ago that we will met again… I give you from now on your old name Mia. I was your Master once and I was your…«

Palmina smiled and hugged suddenly his old Master and said with her soft voice:
»Oh, Master. We have now the chance to work together in inspirative way as artists and you have given me back my old name: Mia«

»Yes, Mia!
Si certo, mia dolcissima Mia!«

»Oh, my old Master P…«

»Psst, don’t say my name!«, Palma said fast.

»Oh, wo de dà shi G…«

»Psst, don’t say my name!«, Palma said also fast.

»Oh, mio maestro Palma il Giovane!«

And Palma hugged her now stronger and both had tears in their eyes.

Now they saw suddenly Master Lao on heaven and he showed them a interesting Vision about the century of Mia (before Lao tze came to the West); the moment as Xuan Ming was choosen as Master Student of Lao tse and his personal writing-secretary and his personal taking-care-of him-secretary:

¹) Claudio Monteverdi (1567 – 1643) – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Claudio_Monteverdi

»Claudio Giovanni Antonio Monteverdi (15 May 1567 (baptized) – 29 November 1643) was an Italian composer, string player and choirmaster. A composer of both secular and sacred music, and a pioneer in the development of opera, he is considered a crucial transitional figure between the Renaissance and the Baroque periods of music history.«

»[…] Monteverdi’s early musical training, or evidence that (as is sometimes claimed) he was a member of the Cathedral choir […]. Monteverdi’s first published work, a set of motets, Sacrae cantiunculae (Sacred Songs) for three voices, was issued in VENICE in 1582, when he was only fifteen years old.«

²) »L’Orfeo – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%27Orfeo
L’Orfeo, sometimes called La favola d’Orfeo [la ˈfaːvola dorˈfɛːo], is a late Renaissance/early Baroque favola in musica, or opera, by Claudio Monteverdi, with a libretto by Alessandro Striggio. It is based on the Greek legend of Orpheus, and tells the story of his descent to Hades and his fruitless attempt to bring his dead bride Eurydice back to the living world. It was written in 1607 for a court performance during the annual Carnival at Mantua. While Jacopo Peri’s Dafne is generally recognised as the first work in the opera genre, and the earliest surviving opera is Peri’s Euridice, L’Orfeo is the earliest that is still regularly performed.«

305. Concert Announcement

305. Concert Announcement

01 Palazzo Ducale in Venice.jpg

picture 01 – Morning view San Marco Place

And after they flew with their Peony Gondola along the surface of Planet Mars they continued to communicate with each other as they walked the next morning at the San Marco Place:

»Yesterday the concert in our Palazzo Ducale… it was so beautiful, Palmina… because you played there and because you played my composition, the Lute Solo of the Image Thunder. You are the best Lute player of our Republic, Palmina! I am so glad that you are back on your position…«

02.jpg

picture 02

And Palmina walked side by side with Palma in this beautiful early morning.
2 Pigeons came flying over their head and landed on the famous place.
The sun will rise in a few minutes and the eastern heaven is slowly getting brighter and brighter, and more and more yellow gold.

Palmina had fresh warm, white, fine, round little breads in her basked and she looked so nice.

picture 03 – view of San Marco Cathedral on San Marco Place in Venice *)

*) Here in the 16th century there was a little church in front of the San Marco cathedral.
»Oh, thank you Palma, I have to thank you that you helped me to get my position as 1st Lute player back in the Republic of Venice, after I was 3 years abroad on my concert tour…«

* * *

And as they saw this Peony Gondola Vision they suddenly heard a music which Palmina performed very beautifully like that:
VIDEO: (Morning Walk on the San Marco Place before sunrise) https://youtu.be/sAKQbs_3ls0


»You play so beautiful, Palmina…«

Palmina looked into Palma’s eyes to read in his heart.
Never he looked so directly into her eyes.

Palmina touched Palma’s right hand and Palma could feel it and smiled.
Now they continued to see their Peony Gondola Dream and they saw this:

* * *

The went under the arcades and are holding hands and are thinking about earlier days without saying a word.

04 Piazza San Marco.jpg
picture 04

»Oh, you are really the best Lute player! Ok, it was for us not easy that you went so long on your concert tour…
The people here in Venice listened to other artists and Lute solists, which are not so perfect like you, Palmina…«

05 Explore-Italy-Attraction-Basilica-di-San-Marco-in-Venice.jpg

picture 05

Slowly they went along the arcades till they were at this place directly in front of the San Marco Cathedral.In earlier centuries there was a little church*) in which Palma and Palmina went also often in the morning to lit a candle and to see each other or to meet each other. Today this church is not there any more.

picture 06 – San Marco Place Venice in the morning

Palmina smiled and she took Palma’s arm to walk side by side in the morning with him.
Smiling she took a fresh white fine and warm little bread from her basked and gave it to him. He smiled and took slowly her bread and sniffed on it and looked over it with his eyes into Palmina’s eyes and Palmina smiled now also stronger.

07 Piazza.San.Marco.original.18418.jpg

Palmina sniffed now also on the bread and they remembered the early time and their morning secret meetings in the little street »Calle de la Pieta« where their secret deep love started very long time ago.

08 San Marco Cathedral in Venice.jpg
picture 08

Now as they walked into the direction of the San Marco Cathedral, they heard a little choir doing a rehearsal in the Cathedral.

»Who are they?«, Palma asked.

Palma knows all the choirs in Venice. These voices he do not know. – they are brilliant They must come from outside.
Palma il Giovane knows about all music and cultural activities in Venice.

Master Gabrieli wants to send the music student Heinrich Schütz ¹) to Palma to make practical at the Venice Art Gallery and to see how good he is for a professional study of music and composition at Choir Master Gabrieli ²) for the next years in Venice.

»It’s a fine girls choir…«, Palmina said.

And after a while they saw an announcement.

»Oh, Look, Palma..Look, Palma they are send by emperor Rudolf II, who ordered paintings from you for his art collection in Prague! Oh, Look they will perform a few compositions from you here in Venice, here in the most famous church of the city.«

»Oh, really. Maybe they wrote me a letter and the letter was stolen by the administrators of the illegal church of social media and its message thieves…«

»Palma, they are making a concert with your compositions…Wooooh“«

Palmina jumped on the floor like a little girl full of joy.

»Oh, fine, Palmina let us all go to the concert in this famous San Marco Cathedral!«

For a while they listened to the girls choir and it was like that:

And now they went slowly in the direction to the water to see the Gondola and the birds and the rising sun.

»Heinrich Schütz (German: [ʃʏt͡s]; 18 October [O.S. 8 October] 1585 – 6 November 1672) was a German composer and organist, generally regarded as the most important German composer before Johann Sebastian Bach, as well as one of the most important composers of the 17th century. […]

After being a choir-boy he went on to study law at Marburg before going to Venice from 1609–1612 to study music with Giovanni Gabrieli². Gabrieli is the only person Schütz ever referred to as being his teacher. He also inherited a ring from Gabrieli shortly before the latter’s death. He subsequently was organist at Kassel from 1613 to 1615.

»Giovanni Gabrieli (c. 1554/1557 – 12 August 1612) was an Italian composer and organist. He was one of the most influential musicians of his time, and represents the culmination of the style of the Venetian School, at the time of the shift from Renaissance to Baroque idioms. «

And after they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina had red cheeks.

»Eternal Love, Oh, Palma. So beautiful…«

She hugged Palma deep in his heart and Palma could feel it and around Palma’s heart it felt so bright, full of light, warm and love.

Suddenly the Peony Gondola showed them a painting.

»Oh, how beautiful, who is the painter, Palma«,

»Oh this is Master Samuel Morse¹). An art teacher in a later century…«

»Samuel Finley Breese Morse (April 27, 1791 – April 2, 1872) was an American painter and inventor. After having established his reputation as a portrait painter, in his middle age Morse contributed to the invention of a single-wire telegraph system based on European telegraphs. He was a co-developer of Morse code and helped to develop the commercial use of telegraphy.«

Later they saw how Samuel Morse looking up to the evening sky and looked to Planet Mars and he heard beep sounds:  . .. …

Samuel Morse tried to write down these signals and later he developed an alphabet based on three sounds high, deep, middle and high.

On each tone it was possible to make one, two or three beep sounds.

So 3×3 was created. The communication made it possible 9×9 different signs.
But to develop an alphabet on earth it needed only 26 letters…

So later Samuel Morse changed the Trinary sound system to a Binary ».« (short beep) and » – « (long beep).

picture – Morse Alphabet for transmitting letters

They saw how the world had communication with this Morse alphabet about long distance.

Palma and Palmina looked very interested.

Now they saw the people of the 21th century.

Palmina looked and asked surprised: »What are they doing? They are pressing with their fingers on a flat display, holding it sometimes to the ear and speaking with this flat display?«

»Oh, yes, Palmina, the people of the 21st century calling it ‚Handy‘ ‚Tablet‘ or ‚Smartphone‘. They are writing each other messages, letters, sending paintings and sending acoustic messages like music…«

»Wooh…oh, really? Oh Palma. They communicate in the 21st century like this?«

»Hmmm! Not bad, isn’t it, Palmina?«

»Oh yes, Palma. If we had this possibility to communicate to each other in our 16h century, as I had been for over 2 years at that concert tour in China in the Pacific…we could write us every day. And the people of the 21st century are able also to send each other music score?«

»Oh, yes, Palmina. But the Church of Social Media has also it’s influence in this way of communication. So the people use Whatsapp, WeChat instead of Messenger because the administrators of the Church or Social Media take money to erase written messages and exchange the message to an other text – to a ‚fake-message‘. So they are paid to make intrigues…«
»Oh, this is like in our 16th century. They stole the letters of the people of the Republic of Venice and so they could attack 1572 the North of Cyprus Island to expand their political religious system with killing so much people…and the Republic of Venice was lost on that island till today.
And this religious extremists are stealing messages also there in the 21 century?«

»They have everywhere their spies and also sitting in high positions of governments only to stop the communication between people who are not from their religion…They are especially targeting tourists which are not members of their church of Social Media.«

»Hmm. So what should the people of the 21st century do to be independent of their influence?«

»After the painter Samuel Morse invented the ‚ Morse alphabet‘ to make it possible to communicate with written text there was the invention of the ‚Phone‘. It makes it possible to hear the voice in the same moment when two persons are using that phone even if they are thousands of Miles / Kilometers away from each other…«

»Amazing! If we had a phone in our century, Palma….
I would have called you every day to hear your voice and to talk with you. My Palma, my composer, my deep love.«

»And I could hear your music. I could hear you playing my compositions on the Phone…Hach Palmina, what a dream…«

And Palma put his arm around Palmina and Palmina put her head on Palma’s side.

After a while she said:

»The people really wrote messages in the Morse Code Language?«

»Yes, Palmina. My Pigeon. My yellow canary bird. My deep . – . .-. -. .- .-.. / .-.. — …- .«

Palmina smiled because she could feel what Palma’s heart wanted to say to Palmina’s heart.

And again Palmina felt the Golden light heart-to-heart connection and Palma felt it also and smiled.

»Palmina. In the morning a bird tweeted very beautiful and brought to me a message from you which was stolen from the Administrators of the church of Social Media…Thank you Palmina, such a beautiful message…«

Palmina smiled and after a while of thinking she said:

»Do you think we can once communicate like People in the 21st century, Palma?«

»You mean we should have once a phone call?

But to make a phone call you need to know the right phone number…«

»Oh, ok a phone number I needed, yes, yes, Palma…«

And now they thought how would it be to have a phone call in their live and during this they heard a music like this one:

Violin and Piano (58d)
