331. The secret of unknown tiredness

331. The secret of unknown tiredness

Early in the morning Palma listened a bird singing very interesting sounds in his little garden.

„Oh, it is from Palmina Albina…“, Palma listened very interested,
„Oh, Palmina is doing rehearsal my compositions…“

Palma smiled and observed the funny singing bird from his window.
Two loving Pigeons he also observed.
HE made „Groo, Grooooo“ for her and moved his head up and down to show his respect to her and comes step by step nearer to his beloved Pigeon.
„Yes, He loves his Pigeon…“, Palma thought.
More and more birds came and made an unique short concert.

„This are the good thoughts from Palmina“, Palma was sure.

„…sure she has got the music score of the Viola-part of the ‚Peony Gondola Song‘. I wrote it in the Violin Key so that she can play it on her Instrument, also the deep tones like the e° and #f°.“

 

* * *

In the moment Palmina could feel: Palma is thinking on her. In this moment she was doing rehearsal of the last 2 bars of the music score [1] of the „Dialogue for Pipa and Viola“.

She had also a little look on the music score of the „Peony Gondola Song“ and moved the paper also to her cheek and smiled.
Soft she kissed the notes.

„I hope Palma will also send me soon part [2] of the „Dialogue“ music score….“, she thought.

 

* * *

 

Later at 23 p.m. o’lock Palma will meet Palmina in their Peony Gondola and Palma will send her the music score.

* * *

But after Palmina made her rehearsal and did her teaching lessons for the talented Orphan girls at the „Ospedale de la Pieta“ music school in Venice (near the bakery shop of her parents) Palmina went to a new restaurant.

As she entered the restaurant she saw no one. No one recognized that she was entering the new restaurant.
„Buon giorno!“, Palmina said but there was no response.
She searched a lonely place to have a drink or a little meal, to read the fine restaurant chard to order something.

„Very expensive prices…“, Palmina thought.

Palmina went to the toilette and came soon back.
As she entered the restaurant hall she observed two men speaking with each other.
One seems to be the owner and the other one was the strange man who tried to force her to marry him only for the citizenship of the Republic of Venice, not for love.

She feel not good to see him here again. She felt the last time she saw him here so tired after the official Engagement.
So she wanted to leave this restaurant unseen and very fast.

Suddenly, as she was behind the corner to go to the exit she heart them speaking strange things:

„…and this Palmina Albina, what is with her?“, the Restaurant owner asked unfriendly.

Palmina stopped and listened what they are talking about her.

„…Oh, there was a problem. I gave her Liquid Sugar Earth in her drink, you know on that day…, but she did not drink too much and we have to give her more liquid Sugar Earth in her drinks. She does not like to marry me….“
„…What, she does not want to marry you? She will not take a drink with you in the future. She is carefully now.
But we have a trick: This restaurant is new and expensive. If all people of Venice come to us and Palmina’s family comes also….“

„…But they are bakers…we are an expensive restaurant…“

„…now they are rich!!! This famous Palma il Giovane helped them to sell their bakery breads to the Doges Palace and to the rich families and important restaurants of Venice. They will sure come to your restaurant… I will give you 3 millions if you give them Liquid Sugar Earth into their drinks and food within a time of 3 years…so they have the liquid in their blood“

„…3 Millions? Giving them slowly Liquid Sugar Earth in their drinks for a time of 3 years?“

„..Yes, after this time they are willingness. And we can plunder them!
Look here in my box: All is full of family Jade. All plundered from rich families in Famagusta on Cyprus island in the years around 1572. We plundered all rich families there with the Liquid Sugar Earth trick…!“

„Oh, that’s a fine Plan. And then if they are willingness we can find a way to invite that Palma il Giovane and his family and also this Andriana to come daily to our restaurant and to plunder them also…“

„You can also work in the bakery shop and put this medicine in the breads, hmm?…he breads for the doges palace, hmm…? to have influence at the government of the Republic, Hmmm?….
But do not give too much of this Liquid Sugar Earth at once… It could cause a stroke and they will come to the hospital and we can close our O.S. sponsored restaurant…
…the victim is disabled for the rest of her live…so not to much at once…“

„..Ok, only a little bit every day….really, 3 Millions for me?“

„Yes, really 3 millions for you. You know our criminal organisation, the church of O.S. will help to expand our religion in the world with that poison till the saint „Day of Bagdad“ will come. You understand?“

„Yes, I will get 3 Million from our religious leaders and eat expensive meet: Salami, Salami…Ah, yes the Day of Bagdad!“

„Ah, Bagdad!“
„Ah, Bagdad!“

„Ha,ha,ha the Europeans are so foolish! Ha,ha,ha they sponsored our restaurant….“

„Yes a colleague of Mr. Hell from the ‚Kreuzherrngasse‘. They thought we are poor refugees, had to leave 1572 Cyprus Island without knowing that OUR O.S. Organisation plundered the whole city with our restaurant-trick, with our liquid-sugar-earth-trick. An old traditional trick… “

„Aaah, Bagdad!“
„Aaaah, Bagdad!“

„But why no one is coming to our restaurant any more?
Do you think the Republic of Venice has found out the money transfer from „Kreuzherrngasse“ to this new Restaurant?
Do you think they used secret service to stop the O.S. Internationally?
Maybe we are observed…“

„Ah, the Europeans are all fools… They would also bring us their children to sell them or to cook them for meat. The most are under our influence.
You know, as the Pest-Virus was in Venice a few years ago, we could influence the news-papers in Europe to write: „…The Virus is not more dangerous like a simple influenza and is not a dangerous Pest-Virus.“ So the people of the Republic Venice did not take care enough and 30% of the citizen died. Our O.S. Organisation had the medicine they get not ill from the Virus. Ha,ha,ha… All other died and we are alive!
Aaah, Bagdad!!“

„Ha,ha,ha, Ok, you will get the money if you give Palmina this Liquid Sugar Earth in her drink….“

„Ok, sure she will come today to test this fine expensive restaurant….
Fine are only our prices. Ha,ha,ha we have the same worse food like other cheap restaurants!
But we put Liquid Sugar Earth in the food and the people will pay higher price – willingness.
Sometimes they bring their family Jade as present – willingness.
Ha,ha,ha! Aaaah! Baaaagdad – The Day of Bagdad – he will come and our religion will kill all others.“

* * *

And as Palmina heart and saw how respect-less these two men were speaking about her and her family, about Palma il Giovane and Andriana, Palmina understood now why she was so tired in the last days.

Now she understood, that on her concert tour her false body guard gave her something in her drink. Because of feeling so tired after a drink or a restaurant visit, she forget the address of Palma il Giovane and could not write him during this last 3 years.

Palmina could fast go home to her little room over her little garden in the „Calle de la Pieta“ and took her Pipa.

Playing on her lute helps her to get back her free will and to have a clear head.
She repeats a part of a music score, especially of Palma’s creations to get rid of her tiredness.

„I never will got again always in the same restaurants!
It is danger for me!
They want to plunder my family, all my relatives.
They want to plunder Palma’s family and Andriana’s family.
Palmina drinks now only self cooked water and self made Salvia Tea to get out all the Liqud Sugar Earth out of her body. (But it will take a while)

Yes, Palmina has often to go to the toilette. But this is the only way to get this influence out of her body.

“ I will never go to the same restaurants any more.
I will never go to the same restaurants any more.
I will never go to the same restaurants any more!“, Palmina tired to fight against her tiredness. – The Liquid Sugar Earth which she got in the last years, in very little drinks or food, has still influence on her.

* * *

Later at 23 p.m. Palmina came in the Peony Gondola and put her head on Palma’s side.

„Palma?“

„Hm?“

„I feel today so tired. I have to tell you something about the new restaurant which was sponsored by Mr. Hell from the ‚Kreuzherrngasse’…
And now I know why I could not have any contact to you – the reason is: tiredness. I felt trapped like a bird in a cage. “

Palma put his arm around her and made a along understanding sigh.

„O mia Mia! Hm, again a »Milon-of-Croton-Problem«, Hmmm?“

„I know all about this restaurant. The secret service of our Republic warned all people on Venice today. It is a try by the O.S. like they did it at Famagusta 1572.
I am so glad that today, 1582, we learned from history. This should never happen again. Never again…“

„Oh, Palma…“

„Oh, Palmina, my innocent Pigeon, be careful. The O.S. are eating and cooking children. This Restaurant owner has cooked little children – really Palmina – he cooked them as meat and the people ate the children here in Venice without knowing that this is human meet.
Our mighty Dogan has given order to arrest him today and he will be executed in the public on San Marco Place.“

„Oh, no he is a child murder. The O.S. belongs to this doing child-prostitution in connection to this Mr. Hell – But Mr. Hell is also now at prison!“

We have to concentrate now on our real Mission, Palmina: Art for the future. Europe needs our creativity, the whole world needs music and creativity so the O.S. can not expand their influence in Europe and Asia, etc… with their Liquid Sugar Earth – Poison.

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.

VIDEO: https://youtu.be/Dum0FaJUkpw

alternative link:  https://www.facebook.com/venitemusizieren/videos/1774983302552667/

 

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:

✮ 315. Palma as supporter of artist in the 16th century ✮

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.jpg

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:

»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.«

278. An additional Mandolin Part

278. An additional Mandolin Part

And after they heard this Peony Gondola Music Palmina said:

„Oh, fine! From where does the music come? Is it from the little Schiaparelli City? There was an ancient street I remember…Can I hear the music again?“

And they dreamed that the Peony Gondola played again for them this music piece and Palma took his Mandolin and played a new additional Music part during the music.

Palmina smiled and thought silent „Hm, I can try this on my music instrument, hmm, hmm…“

Palma could feel that Palmina wants to play this Mandolin part on her music instrument and smiled more during he was playing and it sounds like this:

258 Le Zitelle Choir is singing Palma’s Hymnus on Cyprus Island

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

„Palma?“
„Hmm?“
„I do rehearsal so much so my fingers have pain…“

Palma smiled, looked into her beautiful eyes and after a while he took her talented hands and kissed them soft and tender.

After that vision they saw this Peony Gondola Vision:

* * *

Today Palma always looked at the sky and he saw a beautiful cloud heart like that:

  picture 1 – cloud heart at the skydav

„This is a heart from my Pigeon…She thinks on me…“, Palma thought and he looked to the sky.

* * *

Two weeks later.

„Our ship is going the right course. In a few days we are there…“, the Capitain of the Sailing ship said to Palma il Giovane.
A soft wind was now in their face and hairs.
Palma smiled.
Palmina smiled as he saw again a heart on the sky like that:

* * *

During Palmina made again rehearsal in her room over the big Place, in Pafos on Cyrus Island she heard suddenly music down at the ancient place.
As Palmina heard the music she felt no paint on her finger.
This time Palmina is doing rehearsal very much on her Lute and  this makes her finger pain a little bit.
But after Palma’s music inspiration for Pianosolo she felt healthy. (Palmina likes to hear this music via the Peony Gondola)

* * *

Today it was again a sunny day, Palmina heard a music outside.
A good girls choir is doing rehearsal down at the big ancient place.

And now they started to make music with all their instruments.

„Oh…this is…“, Palmina said surprised.

She looked out of her window to see the musicians.
She smiled and saw: This is Palma!
My Palma il Giovane is playing the Mandolin! Oh, he playes our secret deep love melody…‘, Palmina said and listened also to the music a while.
„…oh he brought the most famous Singer of Armenia….
What a honour for our small island!
Yes, here on Cyprus Island my mother-side-relative Catharina Cornaio was the last Queen of Zyprus Island in the 15th century and she was also the Queen of Armenia…and  a Byzantine Princess. She was also a honour citizen of the Republic of Venice….“
Palmina smiled and had tears in her eyes.
„Yes, this is my Palma. He comes with the famous Venetian Eurasian Ensemble from Venice  to make a performance for me on that beautiful place here in our city Pafos.
Oh, Signora Ming from the Ming dynasty, living now also at Giudecca Island with her family,  playes the Pipa part…“
This chinese family came once officially protected by the Republic of Venice, from that Pacific Island to move to Venice.
Now Palmina took her own Pipa Lute and started to play the secret love melody together with the performance down at the big place where hundreds of people and children were standing to listen this little open air concert.

All the members of this Venice Titian Art Gallery music ensemble played with all their heart and the people could feel it.
Maybe also because Palmina played in this  moment from her window with her lute happy smiling with them. Palmina’s innocent cheeks turned colourful light-red.
„Oh, my Palma, my composer, my painter, my writer…he took all this long way from Venice with a ship to make a concert for me, to express his sympathy and love to me…Oh, Palma… Oh, my Palma!“, Palmina thought during she played and she made a deep sigh.

And the music she heard was like that:

After they saw the Peony Gondola Vision they looked out of their Peony Gondola over the colorful  horizon with a beautiful evening sunset at the longest day in the year.

Palmina smiled and she put her head on Palmas side. Palma put his arm around her and kissd her on her head tender

230. Tender Messages from the Island of the „Daughter of Saint Mark“

230. Tender Messages from the Island of the „Daughter of Saint Mark“

„Love is not a illusion,
Love is not only a feeling,
But Love will remain if all other things are gone.
Gerald Spitzner“

At this eternal Peony Gondola Hour at 23 o’clock Palmina was lucky to hear that music from Palma“s heart.

After this music vision Palmina raised her head, smiled and said now with her soft innocent voice:
„Oh, Palma, my composer! You made me so happy with your 4 Strings variation…“
Palma smiled and answered „Oh, my Pigeon my inspiration, even if we would live on two different places, we would be connected with the help of our Peony Gondola.“
„Yes, Palma, we would think on each other every day, every moment.“, Palmina said with a big smile.

„Can you remember the years between 1578 and 1580 or so…you have been several times in Cyprus Island and wanted to write a letter to me?…“

„Yes, Palma, how could I forget this…“

And now they saw this Peony Gondola Vision:

* * *

Palmina sat on her little table on her little window, her music instruments beside her, and looked out of her little window over her little garden.

She saw a bird flying from tree to tree.
„Oh, I want to write a letter or message to my Jacopo Palma il Giovane, I love him so much…“

And she started to write a nice, beautiful letter to Palma. After she did this she moved her head a little bit left and a little bit right to proof if it is written good and nice.

She wrote:“

Cyprus Island, 15..
Dear beloved Palma!

Today I thought all the day how I can send you a message.
There is no secure way to a message from my island since the island was taken 1572, and the Christian Church had been destroyed from the „holy war worrier“.

Today in the north over 300 citizens had been attaked and killed, over 500 citizens are injured at the north part of the island.
I think the island will be divided in a north and a south part in the future.
I am living in the south-west part and there is no war here and no terror but they are stealing our letters.
Palma, during my concert tour here I suddenly found out that my father, who left mother for an other women, started secret business relations with the enemies of our republic of Venice. Isn’t it terrible?
I am not sure, but I feel that the dark sugar earth social network administrators have secret business relation to the Vatican State. The people here say a mighty cardinale will be arrested soon.
But to write a secure letter it is not possible, also here in the south west part of my island.
We all feel isolated here if we get not soon HELP FROM EUROPE.
Palma, I want to communicate with you.
Why we can not get rid of the letter stealing dark sugar earth organisation?
Communication should be a basic right!
I visited the historic place of my ancient relatives from the 14th century. How beautiful Master Titian painted the relative of my mother…
Here is a copy of the painting and it is also very good.
My beloved Palma, I want to tell you that I am planing to play some compositions from you, especially your „Loredan Mass in G-Major“ for Choir and Orchestra.
I found a nice Choir Master and he wants to perform parts of your composition from you, here on my Island here.
I remember as you composed the first movement on your Mandolin solo, standing under my little window in the „Calle de la Pieta“ in Venice to express your inspiration and love to me.
Oh, Palma, I want to come back to Venice. I think the Vatican-business-friends from the north are reading my letter and controlling my private contacts.
We have to see us today again in our secret Peony Gondola to make music over a big distance, to speak with each other over a big distance and to hug over a big distance.

Hope you will get my message.
Il tell this message as music message to my birds in my garden.
Their communication system is more secure and faster than the human mail system.

With much love
Your you deeply loving
Palmina Albina“

And Palmina took her music instrument and started to play wonderfully.

The little colorful bird landed on her window and wanted to listen to her music message. Palmina transformed her music message into a beautiful melody.
The other birds on the trees looked interested and stopped to sing just to hear Palmina.
After Palmina ended the bird flew lucky away, made a little round in the air and flew to another bird far away.
Then the bird sung Palmina’s melody and the other bird listened.
Later this other bird flew lucky away and flew far, far away to another bird over the sea and landed at another bird and sung the Melody.
Yes, and also this bird brought the secret music message for Palma to another bird, and so on…
After a few days a bird landed at Palma’s window in Venice, the city of love and art, and tweeted friendly and lucky.
Palma stood up from his new drawing he was in that moment creating.
He smiled and understood.
Very heartfelt and exactly he is listening to the sweet music love message from his Pigeon Palmina.
Palma understood every word of her letter and thanked to the little Pigeon, who brought the message from Cyprus Island.

* * *

As they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palma said with a sigh in his voice:

„Yes, this was a miracle, I suddenly understood the bird language, Palmina, I love you…“,

„… the message as secret music from the birds: This was a funny idea, Palma.“

And suddenly they saw a new Peony Gondola Vision in another century:

* * *

„You may not speak with Pamina now…“ a priest voice said.

Suddenly they saw the famous composer Mozart sitting beside his sweet sister Nannerl on their family piano.

Mozart took the beautiful talented hands of Nannerl and kissed them tender and said:
„Natschi, Tschini fibi!
… Nannerl, how do you love my creation „The magic flute“, hmmmmmmmm? “

And he kissed her cheeks fast, hoping she likes it.

Nannerl, was shy and smiled:“ Oh, Amadeus. I love it very much…the music but, why the prince can not speak with his deep tender love Pamina at the beginning?“

„Oh, Yes, my inspiration, my sweet yellow canary bird. The Prince and Pamina are not allowed to speak with each other because they should learn to communicate from heart to heart without words.
But, one thing is allowed for them:
To make music during the time of spiritual growing and spiritual development – the time of silence.“

Nannerl said : “ But, Pamina loves him and she wants to talk with him. The prince can not explain her that this time of silence is only a short time…so he composes for her little music pieces on his instrument…“

Mozart said fast:“ …they are going to be a spiritual pair and they are having a spiritual marriage at the end of my opera!“

„A spiritual marriage? Woooo, like Saint Cecilia made it once? Like the saint of music did it…?“, Nannerl said beeing very lucky and inspired,
„But, they made music for each other during the time of silence, to feel each other inside their hearts, to learn to love each other outside the body., inside their hearts and dreams.“
