329. Romantic Walk to the church Maria de la Salute in Venice

329. Romantic Walk to the church Maria de la Salute in Venice

After Palmina looked happy at the music score and tried to play the piano part on her Pipa and on her Lute, Palmina tried to play the Violin part on her instrument.

„You can play this alongside my music-score-video I posted at chapter 328…“, Palma whispered to Palmina.

And Palmina did this a few times and felt lucky in her heart.
Now she looked at the music score.
Then she put the music score soft and tender on her cheek and smiled, finally she kissed the music score.

Later she was lying beside Palma in the Peony Gondola, gave him a tender good night kiss and Palma could feel it and he smiled as if he could feel her being beside him.

Yes, this Peony Gondola is a Miracle. A Miracle that is connecting two hearts, even they are separated by a big distance.
Palmina dreamed also that she is together with Palma il Giovane again in the 21st century.

And now both are dreaming the same dream and together they dreamed this:

* * *

After a few days – the Saint Valentines’s Day in the 21st century –
Palmina tried TODAY to send a Message via facebook Messenger to Palma.

But the criminal adnimistrators of facebook Messenger erased her Message and Palma only could feel this in his heart but they are now in Venice are sitting together again at the bakery shop in at the ‚Calle de la Pieta‘ at the place ‚Campo Bandiera e Moro‘.

„I wrote you today on St.Valentin’s Day, Palma. Look on my handy…“
„Oh, on my handy there is no message Palmina… They are blocking our communication.
How good that we are here in Venice.

So I will compose something for you…“

They ordered again the so called ‚Palmina-breads‘.
The sun was shining friendly. Some Pigeons came to get something from the ‚Palmina breads‘.

Palma is still writing on his new composition „Dialogue for Pipa and Viola“ (Palma composed this also 400 years ago for her).

picture 1 -  "Dialogue for Pipa and Viola" [1] by Gerald Spitzner.jpg

picture 1 – „Dialogue for Pipa and Viola“ [1] by Gerald Spitzner

„Dialogue for Pipa and Viola… dedicated to …“ he writes over this music score.
Palmina smiled and observed what he is writing on the music score on the table.
She was silent waiting till he wrote his first inspiration down to the music score paper.
Palmina smiled and was lucky. She could not wait to play the first 4 bars of it:
He wrote Pipa music question: A – D – E – a

and

Viola music answer: c – g – d -e
Often he looked in her eyes as if he paints her as painted melodies.
He painted her soul and her friendly character as music in this composition.
Palmina could feel this and was lucky. It remembers the time he was a painter and painted her, here in the house of the baker’s shop, in the little room over the little Garden, where the little birds are singing, singing for her.

Today at the 14th of February Palma makes this music dedication for his Pigeon as St.Valentin’s dedication.
After a long time, as Palma needed a break from writing, they decided to have a short look in the little street ‚Calle de la Pieta‘, where on the left side a little garden still is.
The little short street is starting here at the corner of the bakery shop.

„Oh, there is the little garden… but there is a little wall…;
but in the 16th century there was no wall, Palma,… and there is a little house in the other part of the garden, a traditional Coffee Roasting, look Palma….“

picture 2 - Here at this window in the Calle de la Pieta Palmina played on her Lute in her little room in the 16th century.jpeg

picture 2 – Here at this window in the Calle de la Pieta Palmina played on her Lute in her little room in the 16th century

They stopped and turned left and looked up to see the window, where Plamina once lived.
Palma and Palmina smiled. How often Palma stood there down in the street at the garden, looking up, playing his Mandolin for her (see several Mandolin solo compositions posted earlier), for his Pigeon and Palmina gave always a music answer.

Sometimes Palmina played on her Instrument „A D E a“
and Palma gave the answer with his Instrument „c g d a“

Both remembered it in this moment.

Palma il Giovane puts his arm around her, she puts her head on Palma’s side and now they feel united after centuries.

Palmina took one fresh bread from her bag and gave it Palma to sniff.
Now Palmina sniffed also on the little fine white bread.

Both had now to laughter loud, because they remembered this secret scene which happened here in this little street ‚Calle de la Pieta‘ a long long time ago in the 16h century.

Now they looked at the coffee roasting in this street and they saw that they have a little shop, here, left beside the bakery shop at the place ‚Campo Bandiera e Moro.‘

They went back to this place to visit the coffee shop at the place.
There was a friendly lady who explained about the old tradition of their coffee roasting in Venice.

And it was like that:

VIDEO: Coffee roasting (the video is in the middle of the website, please click on that video to see it ) – https://www.e-venise.com/ph13/0609-les-cafes-girani-venise.html

Now, after that, they went back to the bridge at the Calle de la Pieta which was over the water canal ‚Rio de la Pieta‘. There was a free Gondola and they took it to see Venice from the view of this moving Gondola. A very romantic point of view.
This Gondola is covered (see picture) and not open. (Like the most Gondolas where in the 16th century).

picture 3  - A covered Gondola in Venice (this and similar types of Gondolas had been used very often in the 16th century).png

picture 3 – A covered Gondola in Venice (this and similar types of Gondolas had been used very often in the 16th century)

The Gondola moved slowly to the famous ‚Ponte di Rialto‘ which was in her middle, upper part inspired and designed after the painting ‚La Pieta‘ (1573-1576) by Master Titian and Master Palma il Giovane. During this painting Palmina played during 3 years to assist music-therapeutically the painting process with inspiring lute playing during the years 1573-1576.

They visited the Chiesa Dei Frari to see Master Titian’s famous L’Assunta Maria and Palma’s painting of the Saint Hypatia of Alexandria (known as painting ‚Saint Katharina of Alexandria‘ ).

picture 4 - painting  "Martirio Santa Caterina" by Palma il Giovane at Frari in Venice.jpg

Later they continued to move with the Gondola along the Canale Grande, back into the south direction to go along the Giardino Garden in the south.

picture 5 - Canale Grande with Santa Maria de la Salute.png

picture 5 – Canale Grande with Santa Maria de la Salute

A lot of remembering they had and later they walked again back in the north along the big promenade in the direction of the San Marco Place and Chiesa San Maria de la Salute.

„Today we have to visit this Church – It was not build in our century, for us this is completely a new building“, Palmina said full of joy in her voice.

picture 6 - Chiesa Maria de la Salute at evening (West horizon).png

picture 6 – Chiesa Maria de la Salute at evening (West horizon)

As they walked slowly in the direction of Chiesa Maria de la Salute Palmina asked Palma:

„Palma?“
„Yes, Mia Pigeon.“

„What is the intention of the Adagio-Venus-Neptune Inspiration?“ (Adagio Venus-Neptune-Inspiration for Violin and Piano by Gerald Spitzner)

„Yes, a few days Planet Venus moved alongside Planet Neptune (seen from earth). And this Moment is composed as music inspiration, Venus-Neptune-Inspiration.

Pythagoras says: The Movement of the Planets are making Music.
And we as artists can play and express this music of the Planets, Isn’t?“

Palmina looked at the West horizon and saw the bright shining Planet Venus.
„…and all our remembering on Mars, Palma:
Your Uncle was the first who was on Mars and came back alive…“

„Yes, he was up there with 19 other Astronauts, but after 18 died in a huge storm, he and his colleague survived. But his colleague was too weak to come back to earth. He would die very fast on earth he knows as doctor…
The magnetic field is at 24 p.m. there 20 times stronger compared to earth….
But he was the first who came back to earth in modern history…
My uncle wrote a novel with his friend Ludevit who was a space painter and author. My uncle’s name is not mentioned but he helped to write it. The end is not from my uncle. My uncle died during writing the end of the novel. The book was several times winning awards, especially in Germany and the U.S.A, as book for children and for the youth…“

„Wow, Palma. Your family are V.I.P’s of the history of man.“

„Yes, but only a few people knows that really. It is rather a family secret. They plan to make a museum…with digital film-sequences of the film my uncle made during the landing on Mars.
Also a digital copy of the original filming flying over the little Schiaparelli Crater at 0° degree Meridian and all the important film-material and photos from Mars (in colour!)

Mars is more and more explored by different countries and they found the evidence that the huge space station for 20 astronauts is today still on Mars and they found also the huge mobile astronomic laboratory called „Astra“ at he „Adriatic Sea“.

Palma and Palmina made for a while silence. They hold each other the hands and their hearts communicated silent from heart-to-heart.

„Palma,… I remember a time where we lived on Mars, Palma and we know each other as artist from there isn’t it?

Palma pressed his lips thin together and it seemed that Palma gave her the answer only with his thoughts.

Palmina smiled as if she received his secret message.

* * *

And after they dreamed together this Valentine’s day in Venice in the 21st century, Palma and Palmina hugged and heard the

„Peony Gondola Song – Gondola di Venezia – Santus in G-Dur“ (with 20 Mandolins-version)

325. Palma and Palmina in the 21st century

 

325. Palma and Palmina in the 21st century

»Oh, Palma. I love your creations so much. Thank you for the music score!«

»Today the birds told me in the little garden that you wrote something to me. Are they right telling me?«

»Yes, Palma. I wrote you, but it seems that someone erased my message to you!«

Suddenly the Peony Gondola moved in the 21st century and both looked interested with wide open eyes and they saw themselves in the 21st century in Venice.

»Oh, Palma. Look. We are in Venice in the 21st century. Woooh! Look. You and me in Venice!«, Palmina said like a young girl.

Palma bites also soft on his lower lip on the side.

»Yes, You and Me. You and Me in Venice…«

Palmina puts her head on Palma’s side and Palma puts his strong arm around her.

And they saw now this:

* * *

They are wondering about the way the people are dressed in the 21st century and about so much tourists there.

Palma il Giovane and Palmina Albina are going on the San Marco Place, side-by-side, hand in hand.

Both smiled and Palmina looked up to the big flat in the 2nd floor, which is left beside the building of the beautiful astronomic clock.

Palma observed this and smiled to Palmina.

»Who is now living in this flat, Palma?«, Palmina wanted to know.

»Hm, it is over 400 years ago. Maybe there is a museum…«

And Palmina touched Palma’s right arm and said: »Look, on the left side…«

»Oh…where is…?«, Palma said wondering.

»The little church? Where is it? We often met there in the 15th and 16th century to meet for a secret walk…«

»…Oh, really. They removed it in the last centuries…
But there are a few new churches which had been build. The Maria de la Salute between San Marco Place and the Island Giudecca! So beautiful!!!!
We have to have a little look to see which paintings are there, maybe some from me?«

basilica-san-marcos.jpg

picture 1 – Goldenn Heaven in the Basilica San Marco in Venice

»Oh, my painter. Whole Venice is full of your paintings…I am so proud of you. Let’s go now in the San Marco Cathedral with the golden heaven!«

And they turned now to the right side, they had a short look up to the old flat of Palma and they had a short look on the astronomical clock – Palma explained her how the clock works and how to read the time.

»Oh, Palma…I already know how to read this 24 hour clock and how it shows us the sun and the moon in the zodiac. I did not forget this although it is over 400 years ago…«

Both had to laugh and they turned again to the right side to go to the Basilica San Marco.

14a (12).JPG

picture 2 – Venice, Basilica San Marco

After they looked like tourists the beautiful golden church they sat down on 2 chairs to have a short rest.

Palmina took her handy and showed Palma her Messenger chat protocol.

»Look, Palma. This I send to you during the last time as you send me your music score ‚Planets at the evening sky‘ for Pipa solo…«

Palma looked interested and observed that his messages did not appear on Palmina’s handy not even the sentence „…I hope you are well…“

„Look today I send you a smiley 🙂 …“

„Oh I did not get your smiley… 😦
But deep in my heard I felt that you send me a smile to my heart.“

„And Look, Palma: Here I recorded your music creation ‚Planets on the evening sky‘ on my I-Phone and a send it to you via facebook Messenger, Here do you see this?…“

„Yes, Palmina. Also this I did feel in my heart. And I never received your audio file. The Administrators blocked our communication.
So I played lonely on my mandolin the higher part of the Pipa solo…As I felt it in my heart if you would perform it for me….“

„Oh, now I understand. YOU played the Mandolin part on your Youtube-posting… But who played the Piano part and the Viola part? “

Palmina looked smiling into Palma’s eyes and Palma smiled also and there was it again: the golden light between their hearts which connects them so strong and over big distances.

„Palmina, I played the Piano part and I played the Viola part. I recorded them separately lonely playing…Multi-track-recording this is called…A lot of people are doing this on You-tube…“

Palmina seemed now to be very, very happy and she smiled like the rising sun at spring-time.

Palma could feel it: Palmina wants to jump in the high to express her luckiness.

„So you performed this for me, playing three different music instrument: Mandolin, Piano and Viola? “

„Yes, the same I made with my composition »L’Assunta« – I recorded both: Piano and Mandolin. Look here on Youtube I posted it. This was my first inspiration after you asked me to compose something new after the DGPA Conference in Luxemburg, years ago.
Listen to it – Did you ever get this video?“

And Palma send her via messenger this video-Link but on her I-Phone on facebook-Messenger there was no Message.

„Oh, really our communication is blocked and look they send you in your name a facebook-tumb-up-symbol…“

„Oh, really they are writing also textes in your name and in my name – this is FAKE-MESSSAGE. This is forbidden in the European Union. The Administrators would get punishment of 10 years of imprisonment if we make a report them creating FAKE-MESSAGE!“

„Oh, they are criminals – trying to isolate people from their normal communication and social environment… How we could stay in contact, Palma in the future? With Whatsapp? Wechat? Telegram? Signal?“

„Yes, yes we should use all this at the same time but, no more facebook Messenger – it does not work correctly since years. We should also have phone-calls. And try to send me your recorded audio-files via www.wetransfer.com

„Oh, Wetransfer… A good Idea!“

„You can upload for free up any type of files up to 2 Gigabite (2GB = 2000 MB) you enter your e-mail address and mine: gerald.spitzner@gmx.net ad select the files and click on upload“

„Yes ok, you gave me your mail-address years ago and you also did not get any e-mail from me??? – It was blocked isn,t it?“

“ Hm…Here is the Video of the first composition which you asked me to compose for you.¹)
Palmina took the headphones of Palma’s handy and listened.
Palmina smiled and observed the music score video on Palma’s handy.

* * *

And as Palmina saw this Peony Gondola Vision she hugged Palma and gave him several cheek kissed.

And Palma could feel it and smiled lucky.

After that they saw this:

* * *

Palmina looked up at the golden San Marco Church to the choir of the Organ on the left side:

„This Organ was build in the year 1972. I often played on her and gave concerts with own compositions often at the „Three holy Kings-Day“ at the 6th January every year. As I was young I studied also there at Master Maestro Micconi. I was his Master Student. He played the organ and conducted the Choir of San Marco for years there. Maybe he hoped that I will stay in Venice and move from Vienna to Venice…I composed a lot of music for the concerts there…“

Palmina has innocent light red cheeks and Palma looking up to the golden choir. She tries to imagine: Her Palma il Giovane, making music there on that Organ, build from the year 1972. How was the sound of these concerts. Palmina dreamed a little bit and Palma said:

„I made a few videos, photos, Minidisc-audio recordings of these concerts there from the 90ies and later. Since my childhood I gave concerts there with children orchestra of my mother at the La Pieta, every years. Venice is like my home city…“

„Oh, you gave concerts at the La Pieta – Ospedale de la Pieta at the Orphan Girls shelter, which was once the worlds most famous girls orchestra 400 and 300 years ago?“

„Yes, Palmina. You have been there also a music teacher at the talented girls orchestra and choir. I composed a lot of music for these orphan girls. I was like a father for them. They expected always new compositions from me…“

„Do you remember it?“

„Yes, Palma how can I forget such wonderful music social projects. If there had not been so much intrigues by this Cardinal Hell. He is now at prison…“

Palmina gave Palma a soft cheek kiss and Palma gave her also a shy cheek kiss.

„Come, let us take a Gondola and visit the Campo Bandiera e Moro. Let us see if there is still a baker’s shop and buy some fresh white, little, fine Palmina-breads – which are only available in Venice!“

Palma and Palmina took a Gondola and the Gondola took her Way along the big Promenade in the south-east direction where the sun is rising every morning very beautiful.

Palmina put her head on Palma’s left shoulder and took Palma’s hand and he could feel it and was lucky.

„Palma?“

„Hmmm?“

„…can you explain me once more: How did you record yourself playing Mandolin, Piano and Viola at the same audio recording – What is Multi-Track-Recording…Hmmm?“

Palma put his right arm around his innocent Pigeon and smiled.

„Look, First I recorded the whole Pipa solo ‚Planets at the evening sky‘ lonely on my Piano at home….“

Palmina smiled and put her head near to Palma’s heart to hear it beating, beating for her and listened like a Music Master Student.
She feel so secure sitting with Palma in the Gondola.

„…and after that I listen to my recording using the headphones.
During this I record myself with the Mandolin to have the same tempo like the Piano-track – the Master Track.
Then I listen again to the Piano part and I play the Viola part using the headphones. I also have to take the same tempo like my Piano recording.
So and after that I have synchronize these three tracks together to mix them to one audio file.
Later I make the video-recording and put the audio-track…“

She likes to hear him explaining something like a teacher.
She likes to hear his voice.
She smiled stronger and was lucky.

Palmina remembers now more and more their time of the 15th and 16th century.

323. Pythagora’s fine morning concert on the hill

323. Pythagora’s fine morning concert on the hill

01a picture - Theano (looked like this Statue).jpg

picture – Theano⁵) (looked like this Statue)

And after they saw and listened to this Peony Gondola Vision they suddenly saw a dreaming Vision in the 5th Century BC like that:

* * *

Pythagoras, the famous music philosopher, and founder of the Philosophical Music School of Croton, dreamed.

He saw the beautiful Chinsese Princess, Princess Miao Shan.
Now she looked like Santa Lucia.
Santa Lucia looks now like the famous Delphic priest.
She warns Pythagoras with a sever voice:
»Milo should not marry your daughter Myia.
Oh, he is a Sportsman and wants to become a student in your school.
Oh, he has a lot of money and wants to sponsor your school.
Oh, but: he is observed influenced by the O.S.
The The O.S. wants to spy and destroy the Philosophical Music School of Croton. Even he wants to give money as listener in the Philosophical academy he will be killed by the magic influence of the O.S.
So he will try to make something dangerous:
Oh, A huge tree will give him the end.
Oh, wild animals and Wolfs will rip him apart.«

»But, Mia has made engagement with him. What shall I do?«

»Warn her! As fast you can see Myia. She should not make a long travel with him. The O.S wants to know details about your School asking your daughter during this travel.
She has to be silent.
In the next time the O.S. is attacking Europe and Asia. (The life of Millions will be endangered by the criminal activities of the O.S.)
This is the warning of the heaven to all cultures of the world.

If the School is attacked or destroyed you have to travel along the Tyrrhenien sea to north Italy (etrusc.: tuscania) to the land of the Etruriens, the land of the artists and engineers and astronomers, the land of the teachers of culture of the ancient Europe and Asia.
The oldest high-culture of Europe and the friends of Asia.
They have no central government, they have a 12 city cooperation.
They are peaceful.

Take Master Lao and his master students like his musician and secretary Xuan Ming with you to Etruria. There is no persecution for musicians and there are no hidden-political-collaborations with the O.S. in this country.«

* * *

Later in the family flat of Master Pythagoras:

»Theano, what did our servant observe today at the AGORA?«

»He said: 2 Members of the O.S. talked about that they want use sportsman Milio of Croton to spy informations of our Philosophical music school here in our City – One Man said: If he marries Pythagora’s daughter he will sure give informations to the Church of the O.S. – They pay for every information very much and: they want to destroy music and culture in the world….«

»Oh, no Theano. We have to protect our daughter from the O.S. But how?“

»There is no way which is secure. We can only protect our philosophical school if no one talks any information to lower level students.. We have to talk with our daughter and tell her to be careful; we are V.I.P and the O.S is specialized the plunder V.I.P.-families to take their family Jade…«

»….Theano…«

»Yes?«

»I had a warning dreaming about Myia.
Come, the morning is coming and we have to make our morning music with the higher level-students. I will tell you about the warning dream during our walk along the nature to the music-hill … the music-students are waiting and preparing their music instruments.«

* * *

After they talked about the warning dream they passed the entrance to the secret garden (picture 1).

Pythagoras and Theano with daughter Arignote³), beside them little sun Telauges ⁴) / Τηλαύγης observed that someone is speaking with Myia at the entrance of the secret garden.

01b.png
picture 01

»Stay out Milo! Please, why you followed us?
You are not a music student of our philosophical music school.
You are only beginner student.
And even you say you are my ‚Body guard you are not allowed to enter these secret gardens here.
The Master will now teach his music students. Wait till your time will come and attend the official academy as usual, hm?«

»I am sportsman. I am a hero. I am famous. I am strong. I am a prominent Greek athlete. I am rich.
I am engaged with you…why can I not listen to this morning concert…?«, Milo said wondering.

Myia told him not to enter this area and he went away.
But later he tried to follow them secretly and he hide himself in the background.

Mia went respectful with her wise sister Arignote slowly up to the hill where they are making music during the sunrise at this early morning.

Here in Croton, in south-Italy the morning-weather is not cold at this time.

02.png
picture 02

The musician played soft and Myia was fascinated.

03.png
picture 03

She did not move and looked a long time how the musicians played harmonic and cosmic together – she is also a musician and she likes that way of creativity much.

04.png
picture 04

Mia’s little brother Telauges, said soft and touched her left arm, not wanting to disturb her intuitive listening:

»Psst… Myia. Myia. Pssst… The Athlete Milo came secret in our secret gardens and he followed you… What does this man want here…? It is forbidden for him as low-level-student. I think he is a spy. You know the O.S. uses prominent persons to spy famous schools, like ours….«

05.png
picture 05

Behind them, behind Myia’s little brother and her wise sister Agrinote, slowly the Athlete came and hid himself in the background (not on the image visible) and wanted to see where they are making music together to tell it to the O.S.
He hopes to get a lot of money for that, so he can make a successful career as sports-man in his future and to make a long and expensive travel with Myia.

06.png
picture 06

But the power of authentic music was stronger. The sun raised soft and the music seemed to express the cosmic spheres, which are known in all spiritual cultural traditions in the world.

The music students on the hill felt that a spy was here, but they know that he does not understand the deeper meaning and the deeper secrets of the sacred music tradition and they will not speak any word since the concert.

07.png
picture 07

So they did not stop to make music and the hidden-listener had respect although he was a spy for the O.S.

08.png

picture 08

The music was very fine and coming deep from the heart.
Myia wanted also to play with them. She waited till Master Pythagoras will finish his morning music Inspiration.

09.png
picture 09

Pythagoras sung the Canticle of Creation – The Cantico delle Creature – The Canticle of brother sun and his little student orchestra accompanied his Cantico-singing very soft and fine.

10.png
picture 10

Myia was fascinated, she knows to be an artist of this musicians was a big honour and she knows that she has to be careful that no spy is trying to come in her near.

11.png

picture 11

Myia and Agrinote are very proud of her Master. He is the famous director of this famous philosophical scientific music art school – all generations will know this man and his music family, even 2000 Years later in Venice..

Myia’s mother, Theano, has now to warn the whole music family about the different secret attacks of the Church of O.S.

__________________________________

Pythagoras had 3 daughters:

Myia Μυῖα¹), Damo Δαμώ ²), Arignote Ἀριγνώτη³) and one son Telauges Τηλαύγης ⁴):

¹) MYIA (Phytagora’s daughter)

Myia (/ˈmaɪ.ə/; Greek: Μυῖα, literally „Fly“; fl. c. 500 BC) was a Pythagorean philosopher and, according to later tradition, one of the daughters of Theano and Pythagoras.

Myia was married to Milo of Croton, the famous athlete. She was a choir leader as a girl, and as a woman, she was noted for her exemplary religious behaviour. Lucian, in his In Praise of a Fly, states that he could say many things about Myia the Pythagorean were it not for the fact that her history is known to everyone.

One letter attributed to Myia is still extant. It is spurious, and probably dates from the 3rd or 2nd century BC. The letter is addressed to a certain Phyllis, and discusses the importance of fulfilling the needs of a newborn baby according to the principle of harmony. According to the writer, a baby naturally desires moderation in all things, such as food, clothing, heating, etc., and a nurse of that baby must be moderate also.«

²) DAMO (Pythagora’s daughter)

»Damo (/ˈdeɪmoʊ/; Greek: Δαμώ; fl. c. 500 BC) was a Pythagorean philosopher said by many to have been the daughter of Pythagoras and Theano.

Life

Though references to Damo can be found in the works of Diogenes Laërtius, Athenaeus and Iamblichus, little is known about her life. Tradition relates that she was born in Croton, and was the daughter of Pythagoras and Theano. According to Iamblichus, Damo married Meno the Crotonian. Some accounts refer to her as an only daughter, while others indicate that she had two sisters, Arignote and Myia (married to Milo of Croton). With their brother Telauges, they became members of the Pythagorean school founded by their father. As the school credited Pythagoras with authorship for members‘ work, it is likely that Damo contributed to the doctrines ascribed to the philosopher. According to one story, Pythagoras bequeathed his writings to Damo, and she kept them safe, refusing to sell them, believing that poverty and her father’s solemn injunctions were more precious than gold. Damo, in turn, passed the writings (memoranda hypomnemata) on to her daughter Bitale and Telauges, and to her mother’s brother. The writings, as well as those by Damo herself, are not known to have survived. According to Iamblichus, she was a sister of Telauges.«

³) ARIGNOTE (Phytagora’s daughter)

»Arignote or Arignota (/ˌærɪɡˈnoʊtiː, ˌærɪɡˈnoʊtə/; Greek: Ἀριγνώτη, Arignṓtē) was a Pythagorean philosopher from Croton or Samos who flourished around the year 500 BCE. She was known as a student of Pythagoras and Theano and, according to some traditions, their daughter as well.

Life

According to the Suda, Arignote wrote:

Bacchica (Βακχικά, Bakkhika, „Of Bacchus“)
The Mysteries of Demetra (Περὶ τῶν Δήμητρος Μυστηρίων, Peri ton Demetros Mysterion)
A Sacred Discourse (Ἱερὸς Λόγος, Hieros Logos)
Mysteries of Dionysus (Τελεταὶ Διονύσου, Teletai Dionysou)

Writings attributed to her were extant in Porphyry’s day.

Among the Pythagorean Sacred Discourses (Ἱεροὶ Λόγοι, ΄΄Hieroi Logoi΄΄) there is a dictum attributed to Arignote:

The eternal essence of number is the most providential cause of the whole heaven, earth and the region in between. Likewise it is the root of the continued existence of the gods and daimones, as well as that of divine men.«

⁴) TELAUGES (Pythagora’s son)

Telauges (Greek: Τηλαύγης; fl. c. 500 BC) was a Pythagorean philosopher and, according to tradition, the son of Pythagoras and Theano. Little is known about his life and works other than a scattering of remarks from much later writers.

Life

Little is known about the life of Telauges. According to tradition, he was the son of Pythagoras and Theano. Iamblichus claims that Pythagoras died when Telauges was very young, and that Telauges eventually married Bitale the daughter of Damo, his sister. It was said that Telauges was a teacher of Empedocles, perhaps in an attempt to link Empedocles to Pythagoras.

Works

Diogenes Laërtius says that Telauges wrote nothing, but then makes use of a supposed letter from Telauges to Philolaus for some information concerning Empedocles. Iamblichus claims that a work of Pythagoras concerning the gods was said by some to have been composed by Telauges, using the notes which Pythagoras bequeathed to Damo. The Suda claims that Telauges wrote four books on the tetractys. Marcus Aurelius, in his Meditations, contrasts Telauges with Socrates.

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:

»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 Palma took his Mandolin and played a beautiful Melody.

Palmina smiled and listened.
The Gondola shook slow and soft a little bit left and a little bit right,
like Gondola do sometimes.

The music was like that:

Palmina could read Palma’s thoughts and smiled shy as she heard his thoughts.

»…and,yes, and maybe, later, he becomes the organist of the Basilica San Marco as his master student…And if Crezia and Henricus – who knows – are married and have children they should call them Andriana and Giacomo…«

Palmina smiled and Crezia smiled also shy as if she could feel what Palma il Giovane was thinking about Crezia’s future in this moment.

»I can help him to be the Master student of Giovanni Gabrieli, I know Master Gabrieli very well… he often comes to have tea with us…
I know now he is searching such a talented student like Heinrich Schütz…if he comes to us for tea time I can speak with Giovanni….«

Palma looked straight ahead, looking inside, thinking how to organise this…

* * *

And as they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina put her head again on Palma’s side and she looked up to Palma and said:

»Palma?«

»Hm?…«

»Oh can you play this Aria for me on your Mandolin as a little solo…Like once…«
Palma remembered the moment and smiled.

After a while he took his little Mandolin and started to play for her, for his eternal saint spirit Pigeon:

Palmina’s eyes shined and she smiled very lucky and the music was like that.
And her cheeks turned light red, innocent like once, years ago.
And the music was like that:

After they saw this music Peony Gondola Vision they continued to dream:

* * *

 

At Epiphany, the 6th of January they reached with their Peony Gondola the San Marco Place, they went over the long place to go in the Basilica San Marco.

A lot of people, living in Venice are invited to attend this annual feast celebration on 6th of January, even if they are from an other cultural tradition.
The feast of the traditional Epiphany feast is about the 3 holy kings, which had not been Christians or Catholics.

Also the Ming Dynasty Chinese People are here to show their respect to the culture of the republic of Venice.

During the annuals traditional Christmas ceremony from the left side, up at the choir, Palma’s Cousine Mihaela stood with a music score in her hand.

She will sing today the Aria „Benedictus“ composed by Giacomo Palma il Giovane.

This time Palmina had nothing to play in the church with her lute, now they can listen to the music and enjoy the magic moment, sitting beside her Palma.

On the Organ Master Giovanni Gabrieli is sitting, a famous world wide known composer. organist and Choir Master of the Basilica San Marco.
And now he gives the sign to start the music composition of Palma.

picture - 2 Basilica di San Marco, Venice.jpg
picture – 2 Basilica di San Marco, Venice

Mihaela sung very beautiful and full of heart.
Palma looked up to her cousin and was proud on her.
Palmina smiled also, sitting on Palma’s right side and was proud of her Palma, the most famous painter in Venice , her composer, her writer, her astronomer, her philosopher, her director of the famous Venice Titian School.
On the left side was sitting Crezia and her sister Giulia.

Giulia listened to the music very interested and she was also proud of her daddy Palma and his cousine Mihaela.
Crezia, which was the elder sister, looked also short shy to a man, also sitting in this golden church.

picture - 3 'Piazza di San Marco, Venice' by Carl Ludwig Rundt.jpg
picture – 3 ‚Piazza di San Marco, Venice‘ by Carl Ludwig Rundt

Giulia observed this. The young man was also smiling back shy to Crezia. He is nearly in the age of Crezia.
The man was the new music student Heinrich Schütz¹) from Germany.

Today he was visiting Palma’s flat in the 2nd floor on the San Marco Place to have tea time with Palma’s family:

Signore Schütz will study for 3 years in Venice at Master Giovanni Gabrieli ²).
At first he will play the Harpsicord at the Venice Titian Art Gallery, together with the most famous musicians of Venice – a lot of them are known in the whole world.
It is a big honour to play as student with these famous artists here in Venice in the Venice-Titian-Art-Gallery.

picture - 4 San Marco interior.jpg

picture – 4 San Marco interior

Signore Schütz is coming from Germany and he wants to bring the Venetian music tradition to Germany.

Palma smiled as he saw how lucky his daughter Crezia is looking in the direction to Signore Schütz.
At tea he also felt that there is a special harmony between them.
»Maybe, who knows…«, Palma thought silent, »…he will stay not only for 3 years here in Venice. Master Gabrieli is searching for a Master Student…
and maybe he and Crezia, hm, two artists…she is my painting student and he the musician.
He is a Sympathetic young men who would become my sun-in-law.
Hm…why not…he is a good composer and musician…he will save the Venetian music tradition….«

Now they looked up to listen Mihaela singing the Aria for Sopra in this Golden Cathedral.

The Original Version of this »Benedictus« Aria is for Sopran, Violin and Viola and Choir. ( There is also an additionally Mandolin part).

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.

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.

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.

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.

»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) «

»Mit Genehmigung vom 12. Oktober 1264 wurde die Insel Sitz eines Gasthauses für Pilger ins Heilige Land. Marco Bollani, Abt von San Giorgio Maggiore, beauftragte einen Lorenzo, dort ein entsprechendes Kloster einzurichten, das später die 1405 gegründete Kongregation der Eremiti di San Girolamo aus Fiesole unterhielt; sie bestand bis 1668.« – https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Maria_della_Grazia
