364 . The Best Instruments for the best Musicians of Venice

They continued their Peony Gondola Dream and it was like that:

The Gondola moved soft in the evening waters of the Canale Grande and Palmina put her head on Palma’s side and felt so secure.
During their common Music Vision she felt surrounded by thousands of roses – All the Roses – All the music light roses she saw and felt in her heart!

Palmina wanted to ask Palma for the music score of this music piece and Palma could feel it.
Palma smiled. During that he remembered that today a bird sung at 4 a.m. in the morning bringing Palma a bird message, Palma stood up and looked out of the morning to listen every tweet of Palmina.
(Palmina tried to send him 3 times Messenger and he could feel and hear it).

„Here I have the music score, my Palmina, mia docissima Mia!“

Palmina feels that this music touched her heart very, very much and Palmina looked into Palma’s eyes and Palma looked also into her shining eyes.

„This evening you played so beautiful on my new lute. How do you like it? Is it a good instrument, Palmina?“

„Oh, yes, I love it. It is so nice to play on it. It is a master work – From the best lute maker from Venice…“

Palma took the instrument in his hands lifted it a little bit and said: „This lute is for you Palmina, ordered by the best lute maker of Venice, the most famous in whole Europe, from the whole World!“

„Woooh“, This is for me?“
Her eyes looked like a little deer.
„Oh, thank you! Really? Oh, Palma!
Such a good instrument! Oh, Palma! This is sure the most expensive lute in the world!?“

Palma smiled shy as if he does not know what she means and looked up to the soft evening sky over Venice.
Palmina hugged Palma like a little girl and kissed him shy and tender on his cheeks several times – and: Palma could feel it and smiled.

* * *

The next day Palma il Giovane was at the La Pieta Music School where the orphan girls waited all together in the music rehearsal and dining room.

Palma made it possible that Palmina can give music lessons for the girls as music teacher there at the music school, which is near to her family house, the bakery shop along the cale de la Peieta.

„Now, my dear angels…“, the nun said to all the orphan girls,
„…Signore Palma il Giovane, who composed for us a lot of artworks in the last years is here and he has announced that every girl who is playing or learning music instrument will get new a high quality music instrument made from the best instrument builder from the Republic of Venice!!!“

The girls looked at each other – after a moment of silence they smiled, jumped and cried of joy and luck and made a long applause for Palma il Giovane.

picture 2 – The La Pieta Girls Orchestra playing on their new music instruments

„Graaaaazie! Mille, mille grazie, Maestro Palma il Giovane!!!“

-„Really…we will get new instruments!!! We will be the best girls orchestra of Europe, of the whole world!“

And Palma gave a sign to Palmina to bring the music instruments builder which waited outside.

„Oh, so much new instruments, all for us…“

„This is for me, I play Cello!“
„This is for me, I play the Violin“
„and I play the Lute!
“ I play the harpsichord – oh a new harpsicord – for me!!!“
„…an Oboe for me and for you a Mandolin, look!“
„and there they bring a Viola, and all Viola da Gamba!!“
„Trumpets, Clarinets, a Mono-chord for theoretic music studies!!
„and, and this is a flute for me!!!“, a younger little girl said!

And all their cheeks get light red and all their eyes shined.

Now this seems Christmas in summer.
Palma observed like a father how the orphan girls where lucky.

The nuns where surprised by so much new music instruments and hold their hands over their open mouth and could not believe that Palma il Giovane is supporting these girls orchestra so much.

The elder superior nun whispered to her colleague:“Once we all thought Palma will adopt or marry one of our girls. Now he supports our orchestra….Last month he sponsored us a golden tablet which has the words on it:

‚THE LA PIETA GIRLS ORCHESTRA OF THE REPUBLIC OF VENICE‘

We are so lucky to have him as sponsor. Soon we will make a concert tour to Vienna, Austria with our choir and Orchestra. At the Renaissance Palais Ferstel in the 1.District“

„..Yes, but our girls are really good musicians, aren’t they?“
„And they like Palma’s compositions, so they will perform his artworks…“.
„Sometimes he is like a father, often he comes and tell to the girls good-night-stories for the girls in our rehearsal hall…
Often legends from the Life of Master Titian and his secret love the lute playing musician… she lived here in Venice…“
The older nun listened and nodded understanding.

* * *

Again at the 23 p.m. in the Gondola under the evening stars of Venice:

Palmina plays on her new lute and Palma listened very interested.

No one bought Palmina in her whole life such a beautiful and high quality music instrument not even her father.
But Palma did it. Palma il Giovane said: „I wanted to give you this Lute in the public. But we decided to make our Gondola tour…

Palmina played and Palma listened and the golden light was again between their hearts.

„…Yes…yes….I need these moments of pure music and art inspiration, Palmina. There are so much honor guests in our Palazzo…
I can not concentrate there….sometimes… because I feel so tired after the painting work…“

„…I know Palma, Often the honor guests are asking to see the famous Palma il Giovane, Mihaela said, wondering where you are…
Mihaela told them that you are working on an art inspiration…“, Palmina said with her soft voice.

„Yes, this is the truth…“

And both looked at Palma’s music score and they heard this Peony Gondola Music Vision like that:

363. Pigeon in the Morning Light

363. Pigeon in the Morning Light

Yes, Palma’s painting from the year 1595 has a secret hint to the lute playing Palmina.
At this time Palma, especially the year around 1596, Palma il Giovane painted in the San Saba Chapel every day.
This morning he stood early to paint on the huge painting up, on the left side. (The painting is half circled and in front of the half circled painting on the top right side).
After a while Palma made a thinking break and put down his paintbrush.
Deep on his heart he remembered that last morning a pigeon appeared in the morning on a roof.

IMG_20200612_084522

  Picture – Pigeon on san Marco Place in Venice

He thought that this is his Palmina. Yes, Palmina was able to appear for a while as Pigeon in Palma’s life to be in his near.
Palma smiled and repeated this vision in his heart because this felt so beautiful.
He felt it a golden light from heart to heart.
He layed down on the wide and long scaffolding which was in the half height of the San Saba Chapel in this St.Antonin church in Venice. (A few steps away there is Palmina’s flat and her mothers family shop: the little fine bakery shop at the Campo Bandiera e Moro.

He ate the fine little bread from their bakery shop as late breakfast.
After a while Palma smiled and looked on his right side.
The place where Palmina sits usually beside him was empty. Often she comes to pick him up after she finished her daily evening concert at the Doges Palace (Palazzo Ducale on the San Marco Place in Venice,).

Often he could feel her, deep in his heart, playing her secretly a composition of Palma at the Palazzo Ducale.

* * *

At 23 p.m. in the Peony Gondola Palma took his Mandolin and played for her his new composition for Mandolin.

Palmina smiled and dreamed this music with him and later she put her head on Palma’s side, smiled and dreamed with him the same Peony Gondola Dream:

           picture – detail of painting by Palma il Giovane with secret
hint to Palmina Albina

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

        * * *

At this morning Palma looked out of his window and saw a Pigeon sitting
on a roof. She made soft “Groo, Groooooooo, Groo”.
Meanwhile a little bird came and sung twice his morning bird message
from Palmina to him and Palma listened.
Palma looked up from his table while he was composing for Palmina.
“Where is she now?”, he thought on her and sent her an imaginary tender
kiss.
In this moment Palmina could feel this thought and smiled.
She is doing rehearsal on her lute but Palma felt also that her hand
have some stronger pains.
He send her also on her hands some healing kiss and Palmina could feel it.
Palmina smiled, send him 3 times some hearts and smiles on her »Messenger«.
Palma’s handy made 3 times a sound, he looked on the facebook chat
protocol, but an extremist-administrator from the church of »social
media« erased his message and Palma’s display stayed empty.
Nevertheless deep, deep in his heart he felt that Palmina was sending
him deep love and he felt her deep long »heart-to-heart« hugs.

    * * *

Later as they meet again at 23 p.m. in their Peony Gondola, where their
hearts secretly are meeting, Palmina asked whispering:
»Palma?«
»Hm?«
»You painted my hands like I am playing the lute on your painting…«
»Yes, Palmina, it is a secret dedication to you.«
»…as I looked longer on this painting I realized a lot of secret things.
Oh, such secrets, Palma…«
She pointed with her finger on the right shoulder on the foulard
(scarf) of the Maria Magdalena which was standing under the cross under
Jesus.

»This, this brown scarf looks like a Mandolin, isn’t it, Palma?«
»Oh, really. You found my secret hint to music, Palmina.«

Palma and Palmina smiled.
Both remembered that Palma often played a certain Melody on his
Mandolin especially for Palmina – the »Spring Melody« (3)
Often they played »Marco Polo and the Chinese Princes« in the 16th
century together in the Gondola in Venice like two innocent children.

Now Palma took his Mandolin and played his composition
VIDEO: Mandolin solo »Spring Melody Hymnus « (3)

After that Mandolin solo Palmina was happy and hugged Palma and
understood: This is an old remembering of the time as he lived as Marco
Polo and she was his Chinese princess who grew up in a Buddhist
monastery (she was only a time in the monastery like princess Miao Shan
from the 7th century) also educated to be the wife of a great man or prince.
As she hugged him they saw a lot of remembering in their secret heart
from the 13 century:
As Marco Polo went from Venice out in the world to bring the »peace
message« from the Pope in Europe to the Chinese Emperor in the East he
saw his Buddhist nun the first time.
He saw how they felt love for each other from the first sight.
As Marco Polo was long time a Mandarin (a Governor) in China.
As she came like a miracle back into his live as princess on the West
Lake in the Chunk.
How they married each other in Asia.
As they sat together in the Chinese chunk and she played on her Pipa and
Palma played on his Mandolin from Venice1 and made music variations
about this »Hymnus« – Melody.
And they promised each other that they will find each other in later
centuries with playing this melody.

And they remembered also that she came with over 600 people from China
to Venice, to live there secretly in Venice, a lot of them lived on
Giudecca island there with their families at the gardens.
It was like in the 16th century as a part of the Ming Chinese had to
move to Venice to live there also on Giudecca Island a secure live.

Palma remembered also that his little princes which grew up in a Chinese
monastery also taught him to orientate and to focus to a spiritual life,
especially with her Pipa Lute- and Gu Jin- playing inspirations.
»I learned from you: Life is not only business or politics – I decided
to orientate  to art and spirituality  –  I wanted to became an artist
in my next life in Venice – and musician or painter, composer or writer.
You have been blessed and inspired by the Chinese princess Miao Shan«,
Palma said to Palmina and gave her a tender kiss an.

  And Palmina had light-red cheeks because she also remembered the time
of the 13/14th century and was very shy.

Palma kissed again her painful hand to heal her and he asked: »What is
with your hands – This pains are not coming only from doing rehearsal
too much, what happened?«
»Oh, my Pigeon,
my yellow canary bird,
my inspiration,
my saint Cecilia,
my Buddhist-princes-wife,
my old deep love«

»My Palma,
my composer,
my writer,
my painter,
my Marco Polo,
my Mandolin player,
You composed the »Hymnus of Cultures« (3) as old remembering and performed
it to send again a peace message in the worlds cultures.
»Pi-«
»Pa-«
»Liu-to-kiss«
»bacci- bacci«

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

  Palma dreamed that a little canary bird sung in the morning the Spring
Melody.
Palma was lucky and he smiled.
He felt that the bird sent him 5-heart- messages. (His mobile rung 5 short
times but the administrators erased her 5 happy-birthday- messages
before he could read it)

In his  morning-dreams the little bird came near to Palma’s ear and
whispered tender and soft:“Happy birthday, Dear Palma! Peep-peep-peep!“

Now the little yellow canary bird played on its Pipa Lute beautifully
the Spring Melody like that:

(Recorded for DGPA-Speech)

Palma answered: „Thank you, my little yellow canary. This is so nice and
sweet!
Let me play a music answer to you, my Pigeon, my inspiration!“

And after she played the Melody Palma took his Mandolin and he played
for her
his variation of this melody – the „Spring Melody Hymnus“ like he played
this for her in the 16th century (See chapter 147)

     Yes, and it was like that, Palma played:

352. Ancora una Volta, Palma!

01 IMG_20200402_154835

picture 1 – Gondola and Rialto Bridge in Venice
 

Today a bird sung in the morning in the little garden, bringing a message for Palma il Giovane.
Palma listened and was lucky.
He send Palmina an imaginary heart-to-heart kiss and Palmina could feel it.
Palmina smiled also.

Now they continued to dream their Peony Gondola Dream and it was like that:

* * *

After they played together on the Rialto Bridge the „Waiting on the Rialto Bridge“ – Song Palmina made a soft sigh and said with her soft voice like a Pigeon:
„Oh, Palma! Bellissima“ Tai haude! – Ancora una volta, Palma! – Once More, Palma!“
„Certo, mia dolcissima columba! Wode zui ke aide gezi! My sweetest pigeon!“

And Palma lifted his Mandolin and made silent „uno, due, tre“ with his mandolin and now they played together once more and they looked each other into their eyes and smiled.
And there was again the golden light between their hearts.

music: composed by Gerald Spitzner

And Palma and Palmina made music and played and played.

During the music they remembered that they often met there to exchange their letter-pigeons sitting in a big golden cage.

They saw also the people of the 16th century going along the Rialto bridge like in a remembering-Vision.

Palma’s cage stood under the north arc of the Rialto Bridge with his Pigeon – Palmina’s cage stood under the south arc with her Pigeon.

IMG_20200215_104727

picture 2 – Letter Pigeons

Palmina took Palma’s cage and Palma took Palmina’s cage.

So they could send each other a little letter with the help of the letter Pigeons.
This they made because it often happened that their normal mail was stolen in the 16th century by the illegal criminal church of O.S.

The bird-mail was more secure than the normal mail.

Both thought now about this remembering, both smiled.

Is this not like once? – Today Palmina send a little heart message on facebook Messenger but someone stole her message, read it and erased it – maybe a facebook administrator payed by the church of O.S. with money.

Sometimes Palmina recorded herself on the Pipa Lute and send an audio-recording to Palma but, facebook Messanger blocked her audio-file and on Palma’s handy there was no audio-file by Palmina any more since once.

But here in the Peony Gondola they can communicate from heart-to-heart and make music from heart-to-heart in the golden light.
„Palma?“, Palmina asked looking shy and innocent,
„Can I have the music score?…“

And Palma was lucky that she asked him for the music score – of course he gave it to her.

Palmina said lucky: „Woooh! I love it! Oh, Palma! My composer! Ti amo! Wo ai ni! Mille grazie! henduo XieXie!“

And Palmina wanted to jump on her place like a little bird and smiled and she took the music score and touched with her cheek the paper and kissed it tender.

„Like once, in the 16th century…“, Palma thought happy.
„This is my Palmina, my Pigeon, my little yellow canary bird, my inspiration, my Santa Cecilia, my big old love…“

02 IMG_20200312_092303

            picture 1 – view middle Steps of Rialto Bridge during the
Corona-Virus-Epidemic with closed shops

   So they continued to dream their Peony Gondola dream and it was like
that:

                * * *
– He saw her smiling in an old remembering vision sitting there with
her traditional bakers shop cloth of the 16th century, holding her lute,
playing his composition and smiling into Palma’s eyes.

  – She dreams that Palma wears a beautiful traditional cloth like the
16th century in Venice it was usual and he came to buy some fresh fine
little white breads from her.

  And during their hearts were connected dreaming Palmina dreamed that
Palma is holding Palmina on his arms and carrying her up to the Rialto
Bridge – step by step –  while she is holding her arms around his neck
and smiling lucky.

Palma dreamed this scene also and he saw that Palmina smiles very lucky.

Palma also remembered that he composed a Mandolin solo about
„Waiting-Melody“. He played it standing at the Rialto Bridge so that she
can hear it down to her baker market stand while she is selling her
breads at the marked stand.

  Palma remembered also the music score of the Lute-part Palmina
composed for her.
He remembers that she came up the steps to him, there on the Bridge
with his Mandolin and painting utensils..

Palma played also today, in the 21st century, the „Waiting-Melody“ on
his Mandolin and Palmina said after she heard it:

„Wooh, now I remember…this Melody…you played it for me…I listened
it and came up to the bridge… We were often up there and sometimes:
One was waiting for the other.
You played this Melody so I could hear it on my marked stand. As I
heard it I realized that you came with your painting utensils to paint
there under the arc of the bridge…“

            01 IMG_20200330_163058 picture 2 – South Arc of the Rialto Bridge (behind the north arc)

„Yes, Palmina. Sometimes you waited for me on the south side of the
bridge and you played this Waiting-Melody on your Venetian Lute…“

Palmina and Palma went talking step by step along the south side of theR ialto Bridge.

  „And at the Peony Gondola – where our souls meet – we made together
music:  You on your Mandolin and I on my Lute…“, Palmina whispered
Palma in his ears.

They moved slow but continuous step by step upwards to the highest point
of the bridge.

  „…Here in the 21th century we have now the Corona-Virus-Epidemic.“

04 IMG_20200330_163504

    picture 3 – view from Venice without people

„…No tourists are in this mounts in Venice.
10000 people died in Italy!“

„These poor people. It is a so dangerous time!
We often thought in the 16th century about the poor victims of the
Pest-Virus-Epidemic in Italy and in the whole World.

… We often made a prayer with our music instruments for them.“,
Palmina said with a sigh in her voice.

„…So no one is allowed to go out of the streets in Venice.
Only we both – we are in our dreams here…“, Palma said.

They went step by step up to the bridge.

„…the people can only make music alone at home.
Record themselves and send the music to them they like or love….

This remembers me, Palma. As I recorded own audio-files with my
I-Phone.  I recorded myself on my lute and I send It to you for your
speech….“, Palmina said friendly like a Pigeon.

„…Now is the time for home recording music, because all concerts in
the world are cancelled these days and no one is allowed to make music
in these days with ensembles….“, Palma said thinking „Palmina?“,

„Hm, did you know that I send you a few hearts these days on facebook
Messenger?“

Palma answered: „My handy made sounds but as I looked on our
Chat-protocol…you know…
But, I felt your positive energy… I felt that you also are sad that
your message to me are erased by someone…

This morning I heard a sweet bird singing in the garden.
I listened 5 minutes to this singing bird and was lucky to have a
heart-to-heart message from you, my pigeon, my Saint Cecilia!
I told also to this bird he should send you a sweet bird message if you
look short out of your windows…“

03 IMG_20200330_163613

         picture 4 –  View from the Rialto Bridge

As they arrived the highest point of the Rialto Bridge Palma took his
Mandolin and played his creation for Palmina „Waiting on the Rialto
bridge“ and Palmina took her lute and played with him like that:

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….“

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:

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).

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‘ ).

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

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?«

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.

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.
