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

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.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)

323. Pythagora’s fine morning concert on the hill

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.

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

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:

And they continued to dream their Peony Gondola Vision and they saw this:

picture 1 – view of the different places where composer Gabrieli and composer Monteverdi placed his several choirs (often 3 or 4) and instrumental groups within the same composition in this San Marco Cathedral in Venice

After Cousine Mihaela sung so beautiful her Sopran Aria, Master Gabrieli stood up from the Organ to conduct several Choirs.

They sung also a composition of Gabrieli composed for several choirs and instrument groups, standing at different positions in the Church Basilica San Marco in Venice.

»It sounds to be like in heaven!«, Giulia, Palma’s younger daughter said.
Palma was lucky that his daughter’s are interested in arts and music. Giulia is also making progress in her study of painting in the Titian academy.
Giulia is finishing Palma’s painting with landscapes, trees, the buildings etc… in the background part of his paintings.
Palma smiled to his Giulia proud.

From all directions, from up left and from up right, there is coming choir- and ensemble music.

»Did Master Gabrieli compose this music piece for 4 choirs, standing on 4 different positions in our golden Basilica?«, Palma thought and looked around the golden Basilica to find the place where the musicians are making wonderful music.

During the music he begun to think about the recent private concert in Palma’s flat with its big private concert hall: »Hm, Heinrich Schütz could play the Harpsichord at this concert… Hm, hm, and Palmina could play the Lute part…
…at the actual performance of Claudio Monteverdi’s¹) L’Orfeo²) in our palace on San Marco Place, in the 2nd floor.
There will be special honour guests of our republic of Venice.
Hm, hm, hm,… and if Claudio Monteverdi says that he is a brilliant musician, then I can tell this positive words about Schütz as musician to Master Gabrieli at our next tea time meeting…«, Palma thought silent and smiled.

Palmina smiled because she also thinks »That is a good idea, Palma…«

»..how can I make Heinrich Schütz to be not only Master Gabrieli’s music student, but to be his Master Student?
Maybe with this idea…!«, Palma il Giovane thought.

There are a lot of music students coming with money to study in Venice, to study music or to study painting; but to be a Master student, this is a big privilege.

You have not only to be a very, very good music student, you have to be also choosen by the Master himself.

* * *

As they saw this Peony Gondola Vision, Palmina and Palma sat beside in the Peony Gondola at 23 p.m.

Palma could feel that Palmina’s left hand ring finger is painful because of doing rehearsal so much.

Palma took her left hand and kissed her tender and soft to heal her hand and her ring finger.

Palmina smiled shy and her pain was gone.

»Palmina?«

»Hm?«

»You are preparing a new concert?«

»Yes, Palma, my Master. I want also to play a composition of you in my next concert and I send you a messenger to inform you.
Hm, but it seems that the Administrators of the church of social media have stolen my letter to you…«

»Palmina…« and he kissed her hand again soft and tender, full of love and light, full of golden light, »…in my heart I felt your positive thoughts towards me. In the nature a little bird sung a melody from you and I listened to the bird lucky. I am very lucky that you want to play a composition of me.«

»…you remembered that Master Lao said to you 1000 years ago that we will met again… I give you from now on your old name Mia. I was your Master once and I was your…«

Palmina smiled and hugged suddenly his old Master and said with her soft voice:
»Oh, Master. We have now the chance to work together in inspirative way as artists and you have given me back my old name: Mia«

»Yes, Mia!
Si certo, mia dolcissima Mia!«

»Oh, my old Master P…«

»Psst, don’t say my name!«, Palma said fast.

»Oh, wo de dà shi G…«

»Psst, don’t say my name!«, Palma said also fast.

»Oh, mio maestro Palma il Giovane!«

And Palma hugged her now stronger and both had tears in their eyes.

Now they saw suddenly Master Lao on heaven and he showed them a interesting Vision about the century of Mia (before Lao tze came to the West); the moment as Xuan Ming was choosen as Master Student of Lao tse and his personal writing-secretary and his personal taking-care-of him-secretary:

And they saw suddenly a Vision:

¹) Claudio Monteverdi (1567 – 1643) – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Claudio_Monteverdi

»Claudio Giovanni Antonio Monteverdi (15 May 1567 (baptized) – 29 November 1643) was an Italian composer, string player and choirmaster. A composer of both secular and sacred music, and a pioneer in the development of opera, he is considered a crucial transitional figure between the Renaissance and the Baroque periods of music history.«

»[…] Monteverdi’s early musical training, or evidence that (as is sometimes claimed) he was a member of the Cathedral choir […]. Monteverdi’s first published work, a set of motets, Sacrae cantiunculae (Sacred Songs) for three voices, was issued in VENICE in 1582, when he was only fifteen years old.«

²) »L’Orfeo – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%27Orfeo
L’Orfeo, sometimes called La favola d’Orfeo [la ˈfaːvola dorˈfɛːo], is a late Renaissance/early Baroque favola in musica, or opera, by Claudio Monteverdi, with a libretto by Alessandro Striggio. It is based on the Greek legend of Orpheus, and tells the story of his descent to Hades and his fruitless attempt to bring his dead bride Eurydice back to the living world. It was written in 1607 for a court performance during the annual Carnival at Mantua. While Jacopo Peri’s Dafne is generally recognised as the first work in the opera genre, and the earliest surviving opera is Peri’s Euridice, L’Orfeo is the earliest that is still regularly performed.«

266. Lao tze saves innocent musicians at HAN-GU-Pass(函谷關 / 函谷关)

266. Lao tze saves innocent musicians at HAN-GU-Pass(函谷關 / 函谷关)

After they saw this Peony Gondola Vision they heard suddenly a soft beautiful female voice crying:

* * *

The female voice cried:

»Father, father! Do not make violence against me!!!!

…No…
Please, do not stroke my body…
…Noooo…
Please do not again such violence.
I am a musician…
Don’t hurt me so much, father, father…
What did I do wrong…?«

But they did not see what happened.

* * *

After that they saw this Vision suddenly they saw this:

* * *

On the sky, at the clouds in white colours Master Lao appeared shining.
Master Lao smiled and beside him was a beautiful intelligent female musician with an Asian music instrument.

A voice said: „I saved her life and she plays the Gin music instrument.
She became my music master student. She will follow my spiritual way in the west with a lot of others to meet the West-Music-Master. So I will send a messenger who will learn his language being able to translate my letter for him, asking him if he can send an official invitation to me and my students and musicians to enter his country and to visit his famous well known philosophical school.“

* * *

Then the Peony Gondola moved to the time of Lao tse and
landed at HAN-GU-Pass (函谷關 / 函谷关).
Now they saw this:

A group of female musicians and female singers gave in the last days beautiful concerts in the kingdom and had a lot of success.
They travelled from town to town after they get an official invitation to play as very famous and fine concert event of the town.

Now the Master of the HAN-GU-Pass (函谷關 / 函谷关) send an official invitation for the artists to play in their famous representative palais of the town.

Master Lao was also on his way and was also invited to this concert.

Full of expectation he comes there and wanted to send his new letter from there to the famous founder of his philosophical music school in far, far WEST.
Here he can stay a while till the answer from his old, old friend will come back to this west-china border station of the HAN-GU-Pass.

But a religious extremist group, spying all over the country found out that Master Lao will attend the concert at the famous palais at HAN-GU-Pass and they tried to plan an evil strategy against the meeting of the famous musicians and Master Lao.

* * *

In a secret meeting those members of an illegal religious extremist group meet and talked like that:

»…we can make intrigues against this concert. We have only to give orders to arrest them as criminals even they are innocent. We can use the laws for this…«

»Ai ya, good idea, I am working at the government as high office person and can use my mighty position to cancel the musicians from the program…Is the program printed yet?…«

»Oh, yes the concert invitation was sent all over the region in all parts along the kingdom. All will expect that Xie Ming will play the solo part in the concert.
We have to arrest them all and give orders to…
…and our religion will be expanded also in this culture here…60% of our religious members have high positions in the government. So we will soon influence all others – Ha,ha,ha.
Oh, our religious founder is great…«

»..Yes, our religious founder, he is great….«

»…great…«, all members said.

Lao tze was on his way to the Palais and made small eyes to see the group of musicians which seems to come in colourful beautiful traditional Asian cloth.

But what is happening to the musicians?
He saw that they are arrested by the police. But why?

224. Palma tunes his harpsichord after Palmina’s lute

224. Palma tunes his harpsichord after Palmina’s lute

1

And as Palmina heard so directly music from Palma’s heart she realized that she started to dream and Palma put his arm around her during that and she smiled.
Also Palma did. And he could feel her smile at the beginning of this Peony Gondola hour at 23 o’clock. Palmina smiled very strong, Palma could feel it and smiled also, it was not possible not to smile.
Palma dreamed also, the same dream in this moment, in this Peony Gondola hour at 23′ o clock.
And they continued to dream and they saw this:

* * *

Palma was sitting on his harpsichord and realized, as he finished tuning it, that if he tunes his harpsichord after the Lute of Palmina, in well tempered half tones, it was possible to modulate a music through all half-tones in Magior and Minor.
But Palma tried out to play now and it was possible!
Normally here in Venice, in this 16th century, it was not possible to do so on a harpsichord or an organ – the instruments are tuned to play only in a few scale but not in all 12 semitone scale.
Palma will next week ask an organ-tuner to tune a little organ after Palmina’s semitones.
»Do you think, Palmina, he will tune the Organ like my harpsichord in equal like Well-tempered *) 12 semi-tones like your lute and my mandolin are already tuned?«, Palma asked loud, hoping that she is in the room nearby, listening him and that she will come to him in the big representative room of his flat on the San Marco Place in Venice, in the 2nd floor.

picture - Circle of fifths

picture – circle of fiths needs the „well tempered tunning“ –  the „Well temperament“ *)

»Yes, Palma, Yes…I think he will try it after you have shown him how your harpsichord is tuned…wait, I come…«, Palmina answered from the other room.
And now Palmina came with her lute to make music with Palma.
This moments are the most beautiful moments in Palma’s painting and artis’s live.
Palmina is with him and they are now alone, and they only want to do one thing: To make music, to feel the music-harmonic-connection between their hearts.
Palma played a few notes to test his new „lute-tuning“ of this instrument.
And suddenly he felt inspired with thinking on his pure pigeon, his snow-white saint spirit pigeon, bringing him always to new inspiration for his painting music creativity.
And Palma played and played and he tried out this new „Well tempered -12 semi-tons equal-tuning.“

* * *

As they saw this Peony-Gondola vision Palmina was very proud on her Jacopo Palma il Giovane, her painter, her composer, her love-story writer, her deep and only love.

Again she put her head on his side and continued to hear music and it was like that:

*) Well temperament – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Well_temperament

WELL TEMPERAMENT (also good temperament, circular or circulating temperament) is a type of tempered tuning described in 20th-century music theory. The term is modeled on the German word wohltemperiert. This word also appears in the title of

J.S. Bach’s famous composition „Das wohltemperierte Klavier„, The Well-Tempered Clavier.“

„The first circular temperament was described by the organist ARNOLT SCHLICK**) in the early 16th century[citation needed], but „well temperaments“ did not become widely used until the baroque period. They persisted through the classical period, and even survived into the late 19th century in some areas, for example in Italy. [citation needed]
There are many well temperament schemes, some nearer meantone temperament, others nearer equal temperament. Although such tunings have no wolf fifth, keys with many sharps or flats still do not sound very well in tune (due to their thirds). This can contrast chords in which vibrations are concordant with others where the vibrations are not harmonically related. Some theorists [weasel words] have sought to define „well temperament“ more narrowly to exclude fifths wider than pure, which rules out many such schemes.“

**) Arnolt Schlick – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arnolt_Schlick
Arnolt Schlick (July 18?  c. 1455–1460 – after 1521) was a German organist, lutenist and composer of the Renaissance. He is grouped among the composers known as the Colorists. He was most probably born in Heidelberg and by 1482 established himself as court organist for the Electorate of the Palatinate. Highly regarded by his superiors and colleagues alike, Schlick played at important historical events, such as the election of Maximilian I as King of the Romans, and was widely sought after as organ consultant throughout his career. The last known references to him are from 1521

The first circular temperament was described by the organist Arnolt Schlick in the early 16th century, but „well temperaments“ did not become widely used until the baroque period. They persisted through the classical period, and even survived into the late 19th century in some areas, for example in Italy.

This can contrast chords in which vibrations are concordant with others where the vibrations are not harmonically related. Some theorists[weasel words] have sought to define „well temperament“ more narrowly to exclude fifths wider than pure, which rules out many such schemes.
Some well-known well temperaments go by the following names:
Werckmeister temperament (invented by Andreas Werckmeister)
French Temperament Ordinaire
Neidhardt
Kirnberger
Kellner
Vallotti (invented by Francesco Antonio Vallotti)
Young
Some temperament schemes feature numbers of perfect, pure fifths and these give enhanced harmonic resonance to instruments and music on which they are played so that music moves into and out of focus between keys as vibrations lock together or not. Werckmeister features 8 perfect fifths, Kellner 7 and Vallotti 6.
The contemporary composer Douglas Leedy has written several works for harpsichord or organ in which the use of a well temperament is required.[citation needed]

105. Deeper Meaning of Wise Words – Palmina is a clever musician

105. Deeper Meaning of Wise Words – Palmina is a clever musician

This they saw in their Peony hour in their Peony Gondola, sitting in their soft seats.
Palmina put again his head to Palma’s side and Palma surrounded her with his arm giving her again a good hold.
They continued to dream their common Peony-Dream and they saw:

* * *

Palma and Palmina hugged themselves long and deep.
Palmina said: »Now we can see us every day….«
Palma also said: »Yes, this is wonderful. As we could not see and hear and write each other I thought every day on you. I wrote nearly every day…I played for you on my instruments and I hoped, and Mihaela prayed also for us, that we can see us again… hear us again,…«
Palma stopped suddenly thinking about his day-dream.

»’hear‘ …’see’… this where Master Lao’s words in my day-dream«

»In your daydream…?«

»Yes, he said: ‚First you will feel her,
then you will hear her,
then you will see her.‘ – What did he mean with this words…?«

Palmina thought and was silent.

»I don’t understand the meaning of this words, Palmina…..«

»first you feel her…could Master Lao say ‚First you feel her with your heart…’«, Palmina said fast an made her beautiful small eyes, like she does if she is concentrated.

»Oh YES… Do you remember?…..as we could not speak, and could not see us, could not write us, could not hear us….During this time we could FEEL us with our heart-to-heart communication….«, Palma said.

»Yes, Master Lao wanted to say us: First you feel me with your heart – without hearing and seeing me the first time…«

»…then I will hear you – Playing the Pipa-Lute…«, Palma said joyful.

»….’Then you will ’see‘ her – means not only to see someone with the eyes – it means ‚to see somebody‘ – ‚to meet somebody‘ or ‚to talk personally with someone’«, Palmina said now lucky.

»’First you feel her – then you hear her – then you see‘ Now this words of Master Lao have a deeper meaning. Master Lao wanted to say us that our hearts are directly travelling to meet us in our future live – You will play for me the Pipa – and I will speak with you after I heard you playing.«, Palma il Giovane said.

»Only to understand the deeper spiritual meaning of wise words… It is like the old Chinese ‚Book of Change the I – Ching‘ only a deeper understanding opens our eyes and ears to see and hear and to feel what is the right meaning of the wise words.«, Palma il Giovane said.

»It is the right understanding of Master Titian’s mythological paintings…The paintings are not only to show the human body after it’s nature – it is to understand the spiritual dimension of his creations. The SPIRIT in the artworks is like the SPIRIT in the words of the I-Ching«, Palmina said very wise.

Again Palma was surprised about Palmina’s wise words. She learned so much by only silent listening the lessons in the Titian-School and Palma’s speech about art, culture, traditions, old texts*) he held in the Venice-Titian-Art-School.


*) The Renaissance was also the time of discovery and translation of ancient texts which are hundreds and thousands of years old.


Palma nodded and smiled.
Palmina played not only wonderful her Lutes, she understands also all which is told in Schools of Venice. This moment remembers Palma also the Peony-Vision of the »The School of Athens«**) *) with Theano, Pythagoras best Scholar and ‚Little Palmina‘ , his’s best musician playing on his new created music instruments for Asia and Europe.
Palma could study this painting in Rome as he lived at the embassy.

Palmina could read in his heart and saw his thoughts.

Palma felt that she understood him with the ‚heart-to-heart‘ communication.


*) painter Raphael (wikipedia) did express this moment with »The School of Athens«**)
Raphael – Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raphael

»Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino March 28 or April 6, 1483 – April 6, 1520), known as Raphael, was an Italian painter and architect of the High Renaissance. His work is admired for its clarity of form, ease of composition, and visual achievement of the Neoplatonic ideal of human grandeur. Together with Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, he forms the traditional trinity of great masters of that period.«

**)»The School of Athens«  – Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_School_of_Athens

02 picture - TEANO, Phythagoras and his best scholar - detail of painting by Raphael »School of Athens«

picture – Raffael »The School of Athens«**) with Teano, Pythagoras and music student ‚little Palmina‘ (detail)


Palma send her a spiritual kiss and Palmina felt this imaginary ‚heart-to-heart‘ kiss on her cheek.
Palmina smiled and opened and closed fast her eyes like an innocent deer.
Her beautiful decent smile was for Palma a secret answer who gave him hope, love and light.

In his heart he transformed also this inspiring talks in their secret gardens of Venice into paintings full of beauty and into secret compositions for Palmina.

How lucky Palma was if Palmina learned a new composition from him on her lutes and played them during the painting artwork of Palma.

How lucky his heart was to say silently »This is my Palmina Albina; this is my Lute playing Palmina. She plays only for me this composition. No one knows that I am the creator and composer of this music. All students and people in Venice liked my music creation but only Palmina knows that I am the composer. Music is also connecting our hearts. With music we can say us things other can never understand by listening the music.«,Palma thought and Palmina heart his thoughts and smiled.

»Palmina you are my personal Angel and my personal saint spirit. «
»Isn’t the white pigeon often a symbol of the saint spirit on your paintings?«, Palmina asked directly after she followed his deep secret thoughts.

»Yes, but not only in my paintings…all over Venice…and..«

In this moment the two white Pigeons landed on the Y-psilon formed tree in the background of that beautiful secret garden.

Palma and Palmina turned around and felt that this Pigeons had a long common flight over Venice.

Both smiled.

»Groo, Groooooooo« made the sweet tender loving Pigeons.
