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

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.«

* * *

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:

312. Palma’s mission into music history

 

picture - 1615-20 Sacra Famiglia con Santa Caterina da Siena by Palma il Giovane.jpg

picture – 1615-20 Sacra Famiglia con Santa Caterina da Siena by Palma il Giovane

And she continued to write the letter like that:

* * *

»…Music can heal the soul and body,

I think every Artist has the mission to lead man back to his spiritual identity.

I will write a copy of the newest creation and give it to you as soon as it is ready.
I feel like you and I send you also tender kisses and hugs.
Often I feel that you are playing on your music instrument and smiling and thinking on me.

I wish you also a happy new year, My Pigeon, my Santa Cecilia

Your Palma il Giovane,
your composer, your painter, your writer, your astronomer, your old and deep love and Master«

And after they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palma and Palmina looked out of their Gondola and they saw the heaven clouds suddenly in pink white light.

Santa Lucia appeared at the Sky and transformed into princess Miao Shan, holing her hands like praying:
She said:
»Palma, Palmina, Henricus Sagittarius – Signore Heinrich Schütz from Germany will come to Venice.
He will study at Master Gabrieli and he will keep the old Venetian Music tradition.
Although he is from the Protestantic Religion he will learn in the Catholic dominated Venice – A Peace project of Exchange between different traditions and religions.
In the last years catholic and Lutherian fight against each other as enemy, but here in the Venice there is the beginning of peace and friendship.
He has not so long time, Master Gabrieli is slowly feeling weak and he needs a Master Student: Heinrich Schütz could be it.
Palma, help him to get his Master Student.Like the Heaven helped you to help Master Titian in his last 3 years…«

Princess Miao Shan smiled to Palma and Palma smiled also.

Now Lao Tze said with a quiet voice:
»…And think on the possibility that if you will be later an important composer in music history you need his artworks to study them.
He will be the bridge from the Venetian Tradition to your future artwork, Palma.«

Palma looked interested and nodded respectfully and friendly.
His music will sound like that in the future:
And now a lot of angels with music instruments came down from the heaven, sitting on the ping white clouds and started to play a music:

And they suddenly saw this music vision:

 

Heinrich Schütz – Alleluia Lobet den Herren – Capriccio Stravagante – Vox Luminis – Sempé

311. Palma’s Answer to Palmina’s Pigeon Letter

311. Palma’s Answer to Palmina’s Pigeon Letter

picture - Santa Lucia Jacopo Palma il Giovane Chiesa dei SS. Geremia e Lucia Venezia.jpg
picture – Santa Lucia by Palma il Giovane (Palmina was model)

And now the year changed and the fireworks in Venice made colourful figures at midnight, the 1st of January, on the night sky over Venice.

Palmina hugged Palma and kissed him long and tender on the right side of his cheek beside his lips.
And Palma could feel it and smiled, and he smiled for a long time.

»Happy new Year! Palma!«

»Happy new year! Palmina!«
They dreamed a long time side by side in the Peony Gondola, observing the nice and colourful fireworks over Venice.

Palma was lucky and Palmina was also lucky.

»How would I answer if I also write a Pigeon Letter to you as answer, Palmina?«

Palmina took also a piece of paper and wrote also a letter on it.

Now Palma holds the lantern so she gets light from him:

» Venice, 1st January 1610

Dear Palmina!

I also think always of you.
There is no moment without positive thoughts of you.
It may be right if Master Lao told you once that we will meet again several times…
In Asia and India the people say that a soul comes again back to life and it happens that souls are meeting each other, even after hundreds or thousands of years.

I have the same feeling like you.
I also can’t wait to see you again after such a long time.
In my thoughts we are connected and no one can take this.
We know each other from earlier time.
Maybe I was in a later century once Marco Polo and you my Chinese Princess, the beautiful Buddhist nun, which I brought back to Venice and you lived there at the Gardens of Giudecca Island with about 600 people. Now in our century you are living again there – I mean you have an own flat there as music teacher of the Le Zitelle Girls.
And you learned again an Asian Music Instrument – The Chinese Pipa Lute –
But at Master Lao’s century you learned a Gu zheng – am I right, my Pigeon? And yes, you had been my Music Master Student. That’s why you understood my 8 Asian creations – the 8 Lute solo – from the first moment.
No one would understand these 8 Lute soli and it’s meaning – except you – for the future of peace for Europe and Asia – It is a Marco Polo Music Peace Message – because the knowledge about such music projects are inside of you.
And you understood this music from the first moment…«

Palma smiled and Palmina looked into Palma’s smiling eyes.

In her beautiful shining eyes was the reflection of the soft light of the lantern and the colourful firework in Venice.

picture 1 – Venice at evening with Planet Venus and Moon

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«

01 picture – Palma’s painting inspiration – L’Aspettazione del parto di Maria Vergine by Palma il Giovane

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

✮ ✮ ✮

 

Palma and Palmina took today at Christmas a short walk on the Island Isola di Santa Maria¹), which is behind the island Giudecca and not far.

02 picture picture -   island Isola di Santa Maria in Venice.jpg

02 picture – island Isola di Santa Maria in Venice

Often they walked there to speak about art and music. Sometimes she gave concerts there with her lute.²)

Today is the Christmas feast and they wanted to be a little bit alone before the traditional feast will happen at night in the San Marco Cathedral and Palma’s »Sanctus in G, the Peony Gondola Song« will be sung and played there.

03 picture picture - historic view of Isola-della-Madonna-delle-Grazie-1.jpg

03 picture – historic view of Isola-della-Madonna-delle-Grazie-1

They walked at a green way, full of plants and trees, till they were at a silent place where an old, not used rest of a building was build a poetic corner with window in the broken wall.

»Palma?«
»Hm?«

»This is an interesting place. No one is here. It is so silent here…«, Palmina whispered.

 

04 picture - here at this little island Palma had the inspiration for his Painting L'Aspettazione.png
04 picture – here at this little island Palma had the inspiration for his Painting L’Aspettazione

Palma and Palmina sat down on parts of broken walls of the old building ruin to have a little rest.

Palmina took her lute and played beautifully. Behind her he saw the old wall of the old building and this inspires Palma.

Palma smiled and observed her. Now he is holding his lantern to give her also light.

05 picture - L'Aspettazione del parto di Maria Vergine by Palma il Giovane.png

05 picture – L’Aspettazione del parto di Maria Vergine by Palma il Giovane

 

Suddenly he was inspired to draw her.

Palmina understood: Palma has an inspiration moment.

He started to made drawings for a huge painting.

He saw the angels and the golden light from the heaven.
Palmina smiled and played on her lute.

06 picture - L'Aspettazione del parto di Maria Vergine by Palma il Giovane.png

He painted the animals beside the saint virgin.

07 picture - L'Aspettazione del parto di Maria Vergine by Palma il Giovane.png

07 picture – L’Aspettazione del parto di Maria Vergine by Palma il Giovane

Palma was inspired today on Christmas. The evening was coming slowly and the only light was from their lanterns and the shining evening stars over them in the free nature on this little island.
Palma painted and Palmina played.

As he finished the drawings Palmina asked »How is the name of your creation, Palma«

Palma wrote: »L’Aspettazione del parto di Maria Vergine« on his drawings.

»Oh beautiful, Palma. No one will ever paint such special moment of the live of the saint virgin. You are the only one painter who created this moment…this is short before midnight, around 23 p.m.!!!!«, Palmina said proud.

Palma smiled, because he feels that she understands his creativity and she inspired him.
Palmina smiled and Palma smiled also.
The golden light was again between them and they felt lucky to be together here on the silent place.

And after this painting session Palma and Palmina entered at 23 o’clock p.m. their Peony Gondola and took her way back to the San Marco Place, to be together with all the other to celebrated the feast of this day and to listen the »Peony Gondola Song«.

The Gondola moved like usual the small way between the Giudecca island on the left side, and the Giorgio Maggiore Island on the right side.
straight ahead is the San Marco Place visible now.
During they moved with the Peony Gondola they heard the Peony Gondola Song in their hearts and Palmina is holding Palma’s right hand and Palma could feel it and he smiled.

¹) Santa Maria della Grazia – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Maria_della_Grazia

»SANTA MARIA DELLA GRAZIA or La Grazia is an artificial island of the Venetian lagoon, northern Italy, which lies between the Giudecca and San Clemente.
In 2016 the island was sold to a private company from Treviso, Giesse Investimenti s.r.l., to host a new resort.
History
Santa Maria della Grazia rose during the Middle Ages in the place where Venice’s rubble was discarded. The island takes its name from a supposedly miraculous Madonna which was on display in its former church. In 1264 there was a home for pilgrims to the Holy Land; later it was transformed into a convent.²) «

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.

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“«

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:

¹) HEINRICH SCHÜTZ – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heinrich_Sch%C3%BCtz

»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.

»And now we can see the famous paintings by Giacomo Palma il Giovane…«

And the honour guests of the Republic of Venice could now see the huge paintings of Giacomo Palma il Giovane.

»Can I have an autograph, please Maestro Diacomo…«

»Oh, Giacomo with G… my Name starts with a G.«, Palma said and gave some autographs to the interested people.

And they looked now at the paintings of G – iacomo Palma il Giovane:

And after they saw this beautiful Peony Gondola Vision at 23 o clock p.m. Palma said:
»Palmina?«

»Hm?«

»Today, a bird sung so beautiful this morning as I looked out of the window…
The bird sung very soft so that only I could hear his message. He sung although it was very dark in the early morning…Did you…?«

»Yes, I know, this bird sung to bring you my message: I send you today to your name day my best wishes…
Your name starts with G. Your name is G….«

And Palma took Palmina’s hands and kissed them.
»Oh, thank you my Pigeon….
So talented hands…

always doing rehearsing and playing so much for the republic at the Palazzo Ducale…
…baci, baci, qīnqīn…now your hands and fingers are healed by the golden light… «

And Palmina smiled and it felt for her if she is surrounded by hundreds of peony flowers and said sweet:

»Oh, Palma…, my Palma, my painter, my composer, did you wrote a copy of your new »Golden Light« creation?«

And Palma continued to kiss tender and soft her talented hands to heal her and with one hand he took his music score beside the soft Peony Gondola seat and gave her the music score.

And Palmina smiled much stronger and much happier.

»Woooh, so fast…the whole music score !!!
Oh, Thank you Palma!…«

»…I have to thank you that you played so beautiful in the Palazzo Ducale…

Not only this evening! Also all the years as I was painting in the Palazzo Ducale at the huge paintings there.

Your Lute music made me so strong and inspired and you brought me allways fresh bread and food from the kitchen of the Palazzo Ducale.

My paintings would not have this success if there was not your music playing directly to my heart, Palmina«

Palmina smiled and was lucky about this friendly words.

Yes Palmina supported Palma secretly with her talent only a few musicians have developed.

The most only play on their instrument, but Palmina radiates golden light.
Palmina hugged Palma smiling and gave him a tender cheek kiss.

301. Palma’s drawing inspiration during music listening

301. Palma’s drawing inspiration during music listening

»Heaven, yes heaven! I have to paint here over the main painting of this San Saba Chapel a scene from heaven….«

Now Palma felt inspired to draw an inspiration on a paper.
He lit his lantern and some candles he used to paint at evening there in the church.

Palmina could feel that he is inspired and started to support him with playing on her lutes.

picture 1 - Palma's inspiration fast drawing about the HEAVEN for the San Saba Chapel at Chiesa Sant' Antonin Venice.jpg

»Yes, this will be in the middle above in the half circled painting…«, Palma whispering into Palmina’s ear.

They are completely alone in this Church San Antonin in Venice.
And no one could see what they are doing up there on the wide scaffolding under the half-circled window.

Palmina smiled and looked what Palma had created.
She tries to understand how the painting should look like if it is complete.

»This is only a section of the painting…the middle part…here… this should be there«.
Palma stood up and went carefully to the position where the painting should be.

Now Palmina understood also that Palma will paint this year longer in the chapel because he wants to draw the heaven he saw now in the vision.

»Woooh, so great…and,and… here you painted a Saint Spirit Pigeon!!! Isn’t it Palma?«

»Yes, my Pigeon. The Pigeon which brings the saint spirit! And here I will paint the saint Pigeon and the saint Pigeon only we both can see if we are here at the scaffolding and no one who stands down on earth, if the scaffolding is removed will see our saint spirit pigeon. Pssst. (only if a pigeon or angels lands out there at the window she can see the painted saint spirit pigeon) This Is Our secret, Pssst…«, Palma whispered and he looked at his drawing and he was holding the lantern a little bit nearer to see it better.

Palmina lifted also her lantern and looked interested. Both were sitting on their knees and looking at the place in the huge half circle where the painting in orange colours, the colour of enlightenment and heaven will be painted soon by the well known Palma il Giovane.

So this means every evening when Palmina finished her evening concert in the Doge’s Palace where she plays a Lute solo for the international honour guests of the Republic of Venice, she can walk directly her way to the Chiesa Sant‘ Antonin where Palma is the whole day working on the big paintings of the San Saba chapel (on his huge confortable scaffolding).

Yes, this she realized without saying a word and she smiled very strong.
She looked shy on the wooden floor of the scaffolding then she looked up to Palma without moving her head.

picture 3 - Overview - »Campo Bandiera et Moro« (Palmina's Home), Chiesa »San Antonin« (Palma's paintings), The Atelier at the Fondamenta di Furlani and the »Scuola«.png

picture 3 – Overview – »Campo Bandiera e Moro« (Palmina’s Home), Chiesa »San Antonin« (Palma’s paintings), The Atelier at the Fondamenta di Furlani (where Palma also painted Palmina as model) and the »Scuola«

»I will be there every time I have time after the concert Palma…«, she told him with her heart.

And they thanked the heaven for all that art inspirations in music and painting and they thanked the Saint Virgin, they thanked Santa Lucia who send the saint of music into Palma’s difficult live.
And suddenly Palma had a great idea that her father would not be angry because Palma is painting so long in the near area of Palma’s flat at the baker’s shop.

picture 4 - Palma's fast drawing (right side up) on a paper which has still a painting on it. It was the first inspiration for the painting »Miracolo del fornaio«- Palma il Giovane (1593).jpg

picture 4 – Palma’s fast drawing (right side up) on a paper which has still a painting on it. It was the first inspiration for the painting »Miracolo del fornaio«- Palma il Giovane (1593)

»Look, I paint the Saint Saba here. The Miracle which happened at your bakery shop long ago…«

Palma drew fast and he used a drawing on which  he drew the saint virgin with her baby for an other painting.
He painted the scene of the »Miracolo del fornaio«
Palmina started again to play for him and he saw the whole painting like that in a vision.

After the tradition of Master Titian the painting has to be painted only in white colours and later the colours are painted on that white oil painting.

Palma smiled during he was drawing and she could also see in a vision with Palma that Palma will use Palmina’s father as model for the painting (the baker at left)

Palmina understood also that if the Syrian pilgrims will came to Venice very often, the bakery shop will get a big business in the future and Palmina’s father will do nothing against this painting art project.
Also the Republic of Venice wants to have the saint bones of San Saba here in Venice if the miracle is documented and painted by the famous painter Palma il Giovane of Venice.

»Oh, my Pigeon you are inspiring me so much, my Santa Cecilia, my Pigeon, my yellow canary bird…«, Palma whispered into Palmina’s ear

»Oh, Palma I love to play your music creations.
My composer, my writer, my painter…«, Palmina whispered Palma in his ear.

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…«

Palmina smiled and was very lucky and she hugged Palma with her heart and again there was the golden light heart – to heart – connection between them.

Palma smiled also.

281. The Ancient library on Mars

281. The Ancient library on Mars

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

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

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

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

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

And Palma and Palmina entered the ancient Mars library.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Now they looked at each other very familiar.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

☰ ☵ ☴ ☳ ☱ ☲ ☷ ☶
_________________________________

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

»Yes, Palmina this is a vision!«

»Different Cultures united in one planet!!!«

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

»Oh, look there are music scores !!!«

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

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

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

And the music score is like that:

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

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

And the Peony Gondola played for her the Piano and Violin Part like that:
