357. Searching for Hope in Suffering
(to be continued…)
(to be continued…)
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“  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
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
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)
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
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)
As they walked slowly in the direction of Chiesa Maria de la Salute Palmina asked 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)

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
»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:
»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!!!«

»Palma il Giovane – The Peony Gondola« here:
ALL CHAPTER OVERVIEW:
picture – Neptune seen from its Moon Triton, who has the same size than planet Mars
»Oh wonderful, Palma. A whole cosmic Organ music piece, played only for me. I love you. I am so proud of you.«
»In around 400 years, on the 7th of December of the year 2018 will be a special day: Mars passing the Neptune moon system«
And Palmina hold Palma’s right hand and he could feel it and Palma was lucky.
»2 days ago you played for me on your Pipa. Thank you, Palmina. My heart could feel it. It was a wonderful music. From your heart to my heart. I love you my Inspiration, my Saint Cecilia, my Pipa princess Wang Chao-chun. 王昭君«
»Oh, it is ok. I love you too. Even we can not see us we can think on each other every day, if you also want, Palma… my painter, my composer, my writer, my astronomer. Hm, I think you are a little astronomer….«, Palmina answered smiling.
»Neptune is the planet of music and art…«, Palma kissed Palmina, tender soft and short.
Now the Peony Gondola started to move to a new vision in 400 years:
And they saw at 23 o‘ clock together in their Peony Gondola suddenly the same astronomic event from three cosmic perspectives:
»Look at that three perspectives:…«, Palma il Giovane explained to his beloved Palmina
» 1. View from the moon Phobos¹ of Planet Mars. Phobos is moving within 7,5 hours one time around Planet Mars (3x times a Mars-day or earth day).
2. View from moon Triton of planet Neptune. This moon Triton² has the same size like planet Mars and also a thin atmosphere. (We can say a planet like Mars is moving around Neptune)
3. View from moon Despina of Neptune. Despina is much nearer to Neptune as Triton and is moving around Neptune very fast…«
Palmina put her head and his side and he put his arm around her during this Peony Vision in their Peony Gondola.
And suddenly they heard in their vision a music which was inspired by Palma’s Saint Cecilia and Saint Lucy. Saint Cecilia inspired this composition like a little tweeting yellow canary bird.
Both felt the inspiration:

¹ Phobos – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phobos_(moon)
»Phobos (/ˈfoʊbəs/ FOH-bəs, /-bɒs/ -boss, from Greek Φόβος; systematic designation: Mars I) is the innermost and larger of the two natural satellites of Mars, the other being Deimos. Both moons were discovered in 1877 by American astronomer Asaph Hall.
Phobos is a small, irregularly shaped object with a mean radius of 11 km (7 mi) and is seven times as massive as the outer moon, Deimos. Phobos is named after the Greek god Phobos, a son of Ares (Mars) and Aphrodite (Venus)«
² Triton – Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triton_(moon)
»Triton is the largest natural satellite of the planet Neptune, and the first Neptunian moon to be discovered. The discovery was made on October 10, 1846, by English astronomer William Lassell. It is the only large moon in the Solar System with a retrograde orbit, an orbit in the direction opposite to its planet’s rotation. At 2,710 kilometres (1,680 mi) in diameter, it is the seventh-largest moon in the Solar System. Because of its retrograde orbit and composition similar to Pluto’s, Triton is thought to have been a dwarf planet captured from the Kuiper belt. It has a surface of mostly frozen nitrogen, a mostly water-ice crust, an icy mantle and a substantial core of rock and metal. The core makes up two-thirds of its total mass. The mean density is 2.061 g/cm3, reflecting a composition of approximately 15–35% water ice.
Triton is one of the few moons in the Solar System known to be geologically active (the others being Jupiter’s Io and Europa, and Saturn’s Enceladus and Titan). As a consequence, its surface is relatively young, with few obvious impact craters. Intricate cryovolcanic and tectonic terrains suggest a complex geological history. Part of its surface has geysers erupting sublimated nitrogen gas, contributing to a tenuous nitrogen atmosphere less than 1/70,000 the pressure of Earth’s atmosphere at sea level. It is the second-largest planetary moon in relation to its primary, after Earth’s moon.«
