321. The secret of Palmina – an evening walk 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.«

* * *

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.

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:

by Palma il Giovane

»Oh, Palma. Thank you for your little concert for me.«, Palmina said and she put her head on Palma’s side, sitting beside him in the Peony Gondola.

»I have to thank you that you decided to play my composition in your concert at the Doge’s Palace in Venice.
Every time you play something from me I can feel it deep in my heart.
It is a warm and golden light. I have to thank you, Palmina, my Pigeon. My inspiration.«

Palmina smiled.

»Did I inspire you to a new artwork, my Palma?«

»Yes, look, Palmina, I have a new music creation…«

Palma created a new creation for Violin and Piano and they listened and it was like that:

VIDEO 1: Violin and Piano (68c) https://youtu.be/WsNVCyjTe3U

»…and this: Look: Planet Saturn and its moons are moving exact behind the sun the astronomers calculated…«

»Oh, really, yes…«

And Palmina put her head to Palma’s side and they saw the vision together and they listened this Saturn-sun-music creation 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:

And they saw suddenly a Vision:

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.«

And after that they continued to dream:

* * *

A few days later the spend also their secret time on that little island.

After Palma painted again Palmina and she played a solo on her instrument for him they took their way back with their Peony Gondola.

Slowly the Peony Gondola moved towards the San Marco Place at this special night.

Left hand there is Giudecca Island and right hand there is Island Giorgio Maggiore.

Palmina hold Palma’s right hand and Palma could feel it. Both smiled and again the golden light was between them.

picture  2 – Fireworks in Venice, San Marco Place

»Palma?«

»Hmm?«

»What do you think I would write to you if I would now send you a Letter Pigeon with happy new year greetings from my island?«

Palma smiled and took a sheet of paper and started to write and Palmina looked interested holding her lantern to give him light during he was writing.

picture 3 - Fireworks in Venice, San Marco Place.jpeg

picture  3 – Fireworks in Venice, San Marco Place

»Giudecca Island, 31th December 1609, 23 p.m.

Dear Palma!

I am always thinking on you.
I want to ask you if you can send me a copy of your music score, your new creation…
I love your creations so much…«

picture 4 - Fireworks in Venice, San Marco Place.jpeg

picture  4 – Fireworks in Venice, San Marco Place

Palma smiled as he wrote this.

»…I can’t wait to see you again after thousands of years.
Now I know it, I was your female Master Scholar as Master Lao came to south Italy to visit our family and our famous Philosophical and Music school.
Master Lao and you had a good friendship and you could exchange west wisdom and east wisdom and knowledge about the secrets of music of the west and the east music tradition and also about the therapeutical possibilities about composing music.
And Master Lao said to me, „Myia, you are the best student of your Master beside Teano. You will see him again and he will compose for you…even in thousand years and also much later…“

I never forget Master Lao’s wise words. And I liked his secretary and master student playing the Gu zin music instrument. She taught me to play an Asian Monochord-looking-like-music-instrument (It had a lot of strings).
And she learned from me the European music instruments.

Palma, I can’t wait to get a new music score from you.
I love to play it and I know that you can feel if I am playing on my instrument, even I play it alone in my little room and no one, except your heart, is listening to me.

Oh, Palma!
I wish you a happy new year!
I hope to see and to hear you again after such a so long time.

Your Pigeon,
your yellow canary bird,
your Palmina Albina

PS: This year Student Heinrich Schütz is coming to Venice to study at Master Gabrieli. At the Epiphany feast he will come to listen at the San Marco Cathedral and I am looking forward to hear there your Aria „Benedictus“, which you composed for your Cousine Mihaela«

306. Again on Planet Mars with the Peony Gondola

306. Again on Planet Mars with the Peony Gondola

And after they saw this Peony Gondola Vision they flew in their hearts together again along the surface of Planet Mars:

* * *

Palmina’s beautiful hairs moved soft in the wind and she smiled.
Palma saw interesting landscapes and a lot of beautiful mountains.

Some mountains and its regions seemed to be blue or green coloured, some orange coloured like in a desert.
They saw also a few clouds on Mars and then they flew again along the huge Schiaparelli Crater with a diameter of nearly 400 kilometres.

Palma made some short and fast drawings of these landscapes.
Palmina understood Palma, he is inspired and is now very creative.

During this they heard this music in their hearts:
VIDEO 1: Violin and Piano (64d) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_lB2Hc3_j8


»We are flying over Planet Mars! So beautiful, Palma…so beautiful…«

And the Peony Gondola landed soft on a huge wall which is along the little crater in the Schiaparelli Crater. (at the South part of this little crater in the north east corner of the huge Schiaparelli Crater)

VIDEO 2: Violin and Piano (64b) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_Lzn7Ems9U

From there they had a wide view along the landscape of Planet Mars looking in the south direction.

As they looked interested along the interesting landscape they heard this music inside their hearts:

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.

03 - Amazing-View-Of-The-Piazza-San-Marco.jpg
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.

06 Square_San_Marko_in_Venice_at_night_light_(8134404651).jpg

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.«

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

11 San-marco-San-marco.jpeg

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:

»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.
²) Giovanni Gabrieli – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giovanni_Gabrieli

»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. «

„Can I have the music score if this Saint of Alexandria Inspiration? Hmm, it is the music to this painting, here in the frari church, isn’t it…“

„Yes,  I will write a copy for you and give it on my working table…“

Palmina smiled very lucky.

And  Palmina gave Palma a tender kiss on the right cheek and over his left eye and, yes, Palma could feel it during his dreams and visions and smiled.
And after they saw this Peony Gondola Music Vision they saw this:

   * * *

Palmina did rehearsal today the whole day and could not bring fresh bread in the morning.

So Palma took his way to the backery shop to buy 8 fresh little fine breads.
He smiled as her colleague in the shop said: „Oh, Meastro Palma il Giovane, Singnorina Palmina prepared this little breakfast basked for you. She is doing her reharsal for the big concert in the Doges’s Palace at San Marco Place.

Palma thanked friendly and went now to his painting working place at the chiesa frari, which is a long walk over the Rialto Bridge.
Sometimes, on other days, he mets Palmina playing at the market there,  in front of the little church, at the Rialto bridge, playing her lute and selling fresh breads.
Today she is not there. Palma looked at the 24 h hour clock of the little church.
Palma was looking forward to see her at the concert.
Palma went to the frari church to continue painting the golden light on the huge painting of the saint of Alexandria.

* * *

Later, at the concert Palmina announced suddenly that she will play the Lute solo Nr. 4 about the Image of THUNDER (zhen 卦震)
„Today I will also play a composition THUNDER from the composer Maestro Palma il Giovane.“
Palma was lucky and Palmina played.
The golden light was now in the hall which is also decorated with huge paintings by Palma il Giovane.

The chinese honour guests, also Master Lao from Giudecca island know the meaning of the 8 Image of the I-Ging very well and smiled also nodding.

And now the birth of the melody wich is a symbol of their music love inspiration Palmina played with her lute along the 11 min performance:

And after this Pipa solo Nr. 5 of the „8 Soli for Pipa“ the special guests of the Republic of Venice applauded happy, especially the Chinese people who are living now in the gardens of Giudecca Island.
They will soon invite also to a chinese concert with asian music instruments  at Giudecca and Princess Lin, which Palma painted with all the other princess in white cloth once very beautifully, will play with her students and colleagues.

And they saw all the Landscapes flying over Planet Mars and Palma was also inspired to write remembering about his Uncle. Some Landscapes look like buildings. This they saw in their music Peony Gondola Dream at 23 p.m.
It felt like flying over Mars with the so called »Dragonfly«¹)

¹) A flying vehicle for 2 persons which was constructed to fly over Planet Mars in a speed of 200 km/h.

»Palma?«

»Hm?«

»Can I have the music score of the 5-beat creation, the golden Proportion music (3:2) …?«
»Oh yes, my Pigeon. Here is the music score…«

Palma smiled also.

269. Fly me to Planet Mars

269. Fly me to Planet Mars

As Palma and Palmina saw this Peony Gondola vision Palmina said to Palma:
»You played this Mandolin solo so beautiful for me…
Palma, thank you so much!«

Palma was lucky that Palmina was lucky about this composition.
»You composed it as if it is also dedicated to the saint Virgin isn’t it? Maybe as if it is also dedicated to the saint Lucy or the Saint Virgin Mary, the Guan Yin of the West. It is like an Ave Maria, so beautiful…«

Palma smiled and was lucky that Palmina liked his dedication.

»You should write a version as Ave Maria, Palma, a lot of women will love it to hear it on their most beautiful day in their live: The day of their marriage…«

Palma observed Palmina’s eyes and said:

»Palmina?«
»Hm?«

»I can feel that you have a special wish…Hm?
..Don’t you want me to fly with you to Planet Mars with our Peony Gondola.«

Palmina smiled shy as if she wants to say »YES!« to Palma.

Palma smiled and the Peony Gondola moved up to the stars and flew directly to Planet Mars.

During the soft movement of the Gondola a little prise of wind moved their hairs and they looked wondering around and saw how little our Planet earth looked behind them.

Palmina smiled and said »Woooh. So fast…We are really moving to Planet Mars?«

»Yes, but we are arriving there in a moment where my Uncle is exploring this Planet…«

»Your Uncle on Planet Mars?«

And they looked at the slowly nearer and nearer coming surface of the red orange Planet Mars. Now they are surrounding the Planet along the Equator and they are entering the Mars shadow. For a while it was dark, only the stars shined and now they saw the first sunrise in Rubin-Red colour as a thin red unfinished circle.

Now they flew along the Equator of Planet Mars down to the Planet. Soon a big crater was visible called »Schiaparelli Crater«. Slowly it came nearer and nearer.

»We are flying exactly along the 0° Line of the Equator which is passing the big Schiaparelli Crater«.

And Palmina looked like an innocent Pigeon and opened and closed her eyes several times and she saw that there was also a little crater in the big Crater along the Equator.
As the Peony Gondola came nearer and nearer to the little crater they could see some mountains who are looking like huge ancient buildings of an old historic period.

»Look…«, Palmina said and pointed to a mountain which looked like a special form of an old pyramid or an old Maya temple with their typical high steps.

Palma smiled and put his finger to her mouth tender and made »Sssshh!«; this to show her not to talk to anybody about these secrets.

Palmina smiled and nodded innocently like saying »Ok.«

After they overflew the little crater they entered the big Schiaparelli Crater and a wide landscape opened in front of their eyes.

The Peony Gondola moved now slowly to the right side and flew slowly down to the surface of the Martian Dessert.

»Oh, Palma, look! What is there…? Look, a big silver vehicle is moving down there?«

»Ehm…yes, well… that’s him…«

»Him, you mean inside this moving silver building this is ‚him‘, you mean your Uncle…«

»Yes, Palmina he is inside this silver big bus.«

»Oh, what is a bus?«

»A Bus is a vehicle that can move without horses, like a ship without water, you know…«

»Oh, this is a bus. Fantastic it is moving…«

During the Gondola is coming nearer and nearer Palmina pointed to the silver bus and asked:
»Is he alone here?«

»No he is together with his scientific colleague, a physician. Together they are exploring the Mars. Uncle is watching the stars from his little observatory at the end of the bus and he is in connection with the earth station, and his colleague is collecting and sorting all Mars Material. They are the first men on Mars together with the team of other 18 man who brought them there on Mars«

»20 Man on Mars, all hero…Palma, they do not have any women?«

Palma smiled and answered:

»I will write down the whole story for children ¹)
..so you can read it later…Look there they are looking through a tiny long small window…«

And Palma and Palmina waved to them smiling.

And Uncle Vily said suddenly to his colleague: »Look a Gondola from Venice here on Mars…That’s not possible. Its a dream!«

»Oh, we are dreaming now the same dream – I see also a Gondola 1 Meter over the surface of Mars. And inside a man from the 16th century and a beautiful girl with a white yellow cloth and a lute in her hands – maybe an angel!

Do you think we got to much medicine and this is not real, Vily?«

»No, this is a high dimension encounter. They are travelling through an other time and space dimension! Isn’t that the famous painter Palma il Giovane from Venice?«

»…Than she is maybe his ‚big inspiration‘ send from the heaven from Saint Lucy – Palmina Albina – She inspires him to big artworks and to big music composing…«

»Yes, it might be…oh fine…«

»Oh Palma, they seems to know us. In which century we are now?«

»Psst, a secret – Yes, we did time travel but we are not allowed to change things going on in the future or in the past…
By the way: My painting student Ludevit from Prague is painting the Mars surface very authentic…« and he will write also about by uncle and his friend and colleges…«

* * *

And during they saw this Peony Gondola Vision they heard this music and Palmina put again her head on Palma’s side and Palma kissed Palmina’s head and smiled.

»My Palmina…«, Palma smiled.

»My Palma…«, Palmina smiled.
And the music was like this:

267. Palmina writes an imaginary love letter to Palma during she is arriving in Venice

267. Palmina writes an imaginary love letter to Palma during she is arriving in Venice

picture – morning view at San Marco Place in Venice

After that exiting Peony Gondola Vision they continued to dream and they saw this:
* * *

Palmina is writing a little letter to Palma il Giovane in her little chamber on the ship:

»[Venice, 1582] (Love letter 267)

Dear Palma!

I am now arriving with my ship to Venice in a few minutes.
I can feel that you are waiting for me at the San Marco Place.
Every Minute is like a day, like a week, like a month, like a year.
So now the last 3 waiting minutes will soon be gone and we will see us now in Venice.

I know that this letter is an imaginary letter.
I have no way to send you this message than to give it to you personally. The church of social media does not support our big love story so I send you my message as heart-to-heart message.
A while ago I was connected with you via the golden light. I could feel and see this golden light.

I thank the heaven for this possibility.
I can’t wait to see you again.
What changed in Venice in these nearly 3 years?

On my way back, after the last big concerts there on the east island, I realized the first time how famous Venice is.
All over the world the people know our city and they say to me: „What? You are a musician from Venice? You played there the first lute solist in the Dogan’s Palace? What are you doing in our unknown city, giving there a concert? This is a big honour for us to hear you , you a musician from Venice!“

How often I heart this sentence on my concert tour.
So my father was wrong to tell me that it is a famous thing to do this concert tour.
I had to rehearsal so much – My fingers are still full of pain – I think it was a big intrigue against my talent – A false priest from the cardinal Hell sponsored it maybe, these concerts, only to push me away from Venice for 3 years, to give no concerts at this famous city Venice, so others can play instead of me.

Now I understand this. Palma, but as musician women in the 16th century I had no choice. I am afraid that the people in Venice not even remember me after 3 years being abroad.

Will I have a chance to be again the first soloist in the Dogan’s Palace?

I had really no choice.
Oh, please Palma be not angry with me.
I missed to play your painting presentation concerts all over Venice.

How is the Venice-Titian-School going on?

Are you now a very, very famous painter in Venice, Palma?

I have to ask you so much questions.

Cardinale Cristiano said once in the year 1579 that we both should marry. But, the big concert invitation…, you know.

How is Adriana Fondra doing? How is your cousin Mihaela? Is she singing your compositions? How are the Le Zitelle Girls? Do they have a secure live – They are all very, very beautiful girls! Did you paint them all? Maybe as saint virgins?

Palma, my painter, my composer, my writer:

I hope that we can continue our music art friendship here in Venice, whatever comes.

Your snow white pigeon,
your yellow canary bird,
your saint spirit inspiration,
your Saint Cecilia sent by Saint Lucy to earth to inspire your life.

Your you deeply loving
Palmina Albina«
And during Palmina wrote this, and the ship came nearer and nearer, Palma felt a golden light and he could feel her good thought and smiled.

»Yes, this is my Palmina. She writes an imaginary letter to me and she will give to me the letter personally in a few minutes…«
