321. The secret of Palmina – an evening walk 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

And now they saw, sitting side-by-side, together in their Peony Gondola at 23 p.m. and they saw this vision of their time in the 16th century in the year 1582 as Saint Theresa of Avila died.
In this year in Venice as they were much younger than in the year 1610
they saw that Palmina and Palma tried to write a letter to each other:

* * *

» Venice, 1582

Dear Palma,

Today I decided to write a message to you.
For security I send you this text also as Pigeon-Mail, so you can proof if the normal letter has been stolen from your Mail Box, as usually from the Administrator of the Dark Sugar Earth Social Media Church.

We have to meet us for a long evening walk in Venice.
We have to talk to each other.
I have to tell you about something what happen in my live and it is important that you hear the truth and not what others say about me in the public.

Looking forward to see you.

Your Palmina, your little yellow canary bird.

Palmina Albina«

And Palmina took her Lute and played the »Thinking on each other melody« several times.

* * *

In this moment Palma il Giovane stopped drawing at his artwork as he heard this melody deep in his heart.
His heart feels a warm golden light around his heart and he knows now:
his Pigeon is playing the »Thinking on each other melody« several times.

VIDEO: https://youtu.be/Dum0FaJUkpw

Palmina smiled as she could feel Palma’s reaction.

Palma smiled and Palmina smiled and both could feel it.

What ever happens in their life they would never stop to think on each other.

He wrote:

»Venice, 1582

Dear Palmina!

I feel it, today you wrote a letter to me and the birds outside in the little garden are singing beautiful melodies as messengers for me.
Oh, my Palmina, they told me you want to see me again for a long walk and talk. You want to tell me an important think which happened in your live…
Did I understood the bird correct?
They say a letter Pigeon will come and bring the written message soon.

I am looking forward to hear from you,

my yellow canary bird,
your Palma il Giovane«

* * *

And now they saw them walking in Venice the whole late afternoon till in the late evening, going together, speaking about a very important think in their live:

Now they walk silent a long time side-by side in Venice without talking.

Palma il Giovane waited like an old Chinese Master what Palmina wanted to say to him.
He could feel that Palmina has to say something important, but she did not want to hurt his feelings.

»Palma…«

»Hmmm…?«

»Do you see this ring?«

»Oh, he is new…Does it disturb you when you are playing on your music instrument?«

Palmina suddenly smiled, because Palma seems to say the right words in the right moment.

»Yes, Palma! It disturbs me much.«

Palmina understood the deeper meaning of his words and smiled stronger.

»Yes, exactly about that fact I wanted to speak with you today…«

»What fact?…«

»The fact that I said YES, a few days ago…«

»Yes – to whom?«, Palma said disappointed.

»Oh, no, Palma. It is not like you think…I thought it was a joke…and so I said yes to his question…«

»..but who is he?«

»You know, I was on the concert tour and on my way back I met him and my father asked him to… I mean he is not really my…
…you have to know: As I made my concert career on that island, we got more and more letters from men who wanted to have contact to me and to marry me….«
»Oh, I see..and you made the choice for only one man..«

»Oh, Palma…I did not made my choice…«

»Your father made the choice for your future men?«

»No, no,no, Palma…He asked him to PLAY the ROLE to be my boyfriend only in the public to avoid that one of the music fans wanted to have too close contact for me…«

»I understand…but, why he is now in Venice?«

»Yes, it was a surprise for me and I thought that I have to continue to play his girl-friend after the orders of my father. I thought my father wants that the people of Venice know that I am engaged.«

»Oh, I see, it was only a joke…«

»No, no Palma, this time he made it serious and I have now a Problem…
His family is expecting to marry me to get the citizenship of the Republic of Venice.«

»Oh,,that’s the problem… He is from that island and since 1572 the Republic of Venice has lost its government on that island. The O.S. attacked the country and took the north part of Cyprus Island.«

»Is he from north Cyprus?«

»Yes, Palma, that’s the Problem he is member of the church of O.S.«

»But, Palmina, what’s the problem? If all this was a joke, why is it a problem?«

»The Problem is: He helped me to protect me from the music fans, he played the role of a boy friend in the public – nothing else. And now he wants that we help him to live in Venice. And therefore he said after I said YES, that he wants to get the citizenship of the Republic of Venice.
And he thought I will marry him…as thank you for his help on Cyprus Island.«

»And what does your father say?«, Palma asked like a good friend.

IMG_20200126_143858
picture 3 – 2 Lanterns in Venice

»My father shouted and said ‚Why you did not say NO to this Moslem. Why did you not take Master Giovanni Palma il Giovane, he is a tolerant and good man, he is a successful painter who paints in whole Venice, who paints at the Palazzo Ducale, where the mightiest persons of the world are going in and out….‘, he said and he punished me with his violence«

»And how did your North-Cyprus-fake-boy-friend react after you said him that it was a misunderstanding…?«

Later on the street he punished me violently also violent like father and said »After our religious tradition the women has to obey the husband even she is a Christian«

»I said to him: I am not your wife. – He said that I said Yes in the public. He said he will destroy my music career on Cyprus Island – and he said also that his rich family will support me with money for the concerts if I decide to be his wife.«

* * *

And now both were silent.

Palma was now alone with her.

Palmina made a long sigh – Palma made a long sigh.

He put his strong arm around her.
Palmina could feel his warm energy and she felt Palma takes care for her.

Now they went for a long walk in Venice, the atmosphere of the coming evening made them both very harmonic and full of hope.

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:

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

picture – Santa Lucia by Palma il Giovane (Palmina was model)

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

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

»Happy new Year! Palma!«

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

Palma was lucky and Palmina was also lucky.

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

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

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

» Venice, 1st January 1610

Dear Palmina!

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

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

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

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

296. Bach, Vivaldi and the the Orphan Girls Orchestra in Venice

And after they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palma said to his Pigeon:

»Palmina, the little sweet bird in the morning said to me that you performed my composition LAKE yesterday! Did you, Palmina…?
I felt in my heart that you played for me…«

Palmina smiled and was happy that Palma could feel her music secret surprise.

He took her hands and kissed her talented hands tender and thankfully.
Palmina’s eyes shined and she felt that Palma wants to heal her hands.
Palma il Giovane could feel in the last days that she had pains on her hands because she prepared hard for this concert.

And during these days he could also feel her tender cheek kisses as he slept and he could feel it in his dreams.

And after that Palmina smiled and hugged Palma and gave him a sweet tender kiss on his cheek – in their Peony Gondola hour at 23 p.m. During this they suddenly continued to see the Peony Gondola vision with Bach in Venice in the 18th century:

✮ ✮ ✮

01 picture - San Marco Place in Venice.jpg

01 picture – San Marco Place in Venice

They saw the stars over Venice at the evening sky and they saw this evening Master Johann Sebastian Bach alone with his wife in a huge Gondola.
After the brilliant concert at the ‚Ospedale de la Pieta Girls Orchestra‘ with Vivaldi’s »Gloria« they are all (Bach, his family, Vivaldi and his girls orchestra) invited together with the girls at Giudecca island at a Chinese family, which came once in the 16th century and are living there.
They know a lot of stories about Marco Polo and his Asian Princess and of course a lot of stories about Palmina and Palma. And they are interested in Asian music instruments and of course asian tea.

On their way to Giudecca Island Bach said to his wife: »Maestro Vivaldi’s Girls Orchestra and Choir are brilliant. Should we move to Asia or to Venice, hmm? If I could have such brilliant musicians for my compositions, Anna Magdalena…? This would be a miracle!«, Bach said a little bit sad.

»Yes, this would be a miracle.
Hmmm, but a miracle happened, dear Johann Sebastian…
It happened:
Vivaldis orphan music school girls performed with padre Maestro Vivaldi all your missa brevis¹):

the missa brevis G-Major,
the missa brevis in g-minor,
the missa brevis in F-Major and
the mystic missa brevis in A-Major with Flauto traverso *)

Ach, so beautiful compositions, Johann Sebastian.«, Anna Magdalena said with a sigh in her voice.

They heard the La Pieta Girls Choir and orchestra singing Bach’s composition in a vision and they saw Vivaldi conducting in Venice and it was like this:
*) VIDEO: [music score] (5min) Bach, missa brevis, Mass in A major – Kyrie (Herreweghe) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-Bqgw9Z4S8

»Yes, this was a miracle. Initially I composed this short missa brevis for Franz Anton von Sporck ²) and his ‚Sporck theatre‘. Like a miracle my compositions came in the hands of Antonio Vivaldi in Venice…«, Johann Sebastian said smiling and he put his strong huge arm around his little Anna Magdalena Bach smiling.

»Yes, Johann Sebastian, padre Maestro Vivaldi had good connections to Franz Anton von Sporck and he met him several times as his La Pieta Girls Orchestra gave concerts there in Prague…«, Anna said proud.

»Yes, they performed my compositions in Prague and Venice, yes a miracle…
Thank you Santa Lucia !!! Tomorrow we have to visit the chiesa of Santa Lucia also to visit the Santa-Lucia-paintings of Palma il Giovane there«, he said and searched his Mandolin.

✮ ✮ ✮

02 picture – Gondolas moving to Giudecca Island

All the Gondola’s are now moving at this evening to Giudecca Island with Bach, Vivaldi and the whole talented girls from the La Pieta Orphan shelter music school Orchestra.
They are all invited to the old Chinese Families to a Tea ceremony concert in their big gardens in Venice to hear the Yin-Yang-Chinese-Garden-Orchestra. And all are looking forward to have this Asian Tea and to hear the original Asian Music Instruments.

* * *

And after they saw this Peony Gondola Vision:

Palmina smiled and Palma knew which music piece will be performed at this Chinese concert.

Palma smiled secretly and shy.

»Palma?

Hm, why are you smiling so shy? Palmaaaa? Hmm? «

And they saw the Asian Trigram on the heaven and the heaven was pink with white clouds:

☱ – LAKE- DUI – THE JOYOUS

Now a voice said in ancient old Chinese language style:

» 說萬物者莫說乎澤 –
Of all that forces that GIVE JOY things,
there is no more gladdening than the LAKE ☱ «

»Oh, Palma!«

»Oh, Palmina!«

»Pi-«

»-Pa«

and now they made both a round mouth, moved them to each other mouths
and said together:
»Liu – to – kiss«

And then they kissed sweet and short and smiled.

»Apart from the 1733 Missa in B minor for the Dresden court (later incorporated in the Mass in B minor), Johann Sebastian Bach wrote four further Kyrie–Gloria Masses, BWV 233–236. These compositions, consisting of the first two sections of the Mass ordinary (i.e. the Kyrie and the Gloria), have been indicated as Missae breves (Latin for „short masses“) or Lutheran Masses. They seem to have been intended for liturgical use, considering a performance time of about 20 minutes each, the average duration of a Bach cantata. They may have been composed around 1738/39.[1] Possibly they were written for Count Franz Anton von Sporck² or performed by him in Lysá.«

²) Franz Anton von Sporck – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franz_Anton_von_Sporck

»Franz Anton von Sporck, Count (Franz Anton Reichsgraf von Sporck in German, František Antonín hrabě Špork in Czech) (born 9 March 1662 in Lysá nad Labem or Heřmanův Městec; died 30 March 1738 in Lysá nad Labem) was a German-speaking literatus and patron of the arts who lived in the province of Bohemia in what is now the Czech Republic. He was one of the most notable cultural and intellectual figures in central Europe in the early 18th century. «

»…attracting some of the most prominent singers in Italy to Prague, and used Antonio Vivaldi as a source of repertory and singers. VIVALDI himself visited Prague in the early 1730s as a result of his connections with the Sporck theater. Many creative operatic works were first performed in the Sporck theater, including the first opera to use the original settings and character names from the tradition of Don Juan dramatizations:«

281. The Ancient library on Mars

281. The Ancient library on Mars

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

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

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

picture – a view of a little version of a Venetian Gondola (The Peony Gondola is a little bit bigger than this one)

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

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

And Palma and Palmina entered the ancient Mars library.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Now they looked at each other very familiar.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

_________________________________

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

»Yes, Palmina this is a vision!«

»Different Cultures united in one planet!!!«

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

»Oh, look there are music scores !!!«

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

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

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

And the music score is like that:

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

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

===========================================

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.

264. Making music over a big distance

01 – The-Grand-Canal-Venice-by-night.jpg

Palma could feel the music Palmina played on her Lute for him.

Palma smiled. He heard her playing in his inner heart.

* * *

As they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina asked: „What did you do after I played this Melody? Hmm Palma?“

Palma looked shy and answered: “ I…I…I heard that you played an other Melody after you Played our ‚I miss you melody…and then…“

Palma was shy.
Palmina smiled and asked:“ Hmmm? What did you do in our Peony Gondola hour after I played the melody….Hmmmm?“

„Later, I went to the San Marco Place…“, Palma said and they continued to see their Peony Gondola dream and they saw this:

* * *

02 Gondola along the Big Promenade

02 Gondola along the Big Promenade

Palma went in the direction of the San Marco Place, but he has to turn left and go then a while a short way along the big Promenade ‚Riva di Siavoni‘ till he arrived on San Marco Place.

03 San Marco Cathedral

03 San Marco Cathedral

He went a few time along the San Marco Place to see the two Pigeons.

04 Dogans Palace on San Marco Place

04 Dogans Palace on San Marco Place

But now he felt that Palmina’s ship is coming.

05 view to the water side on San Marco Place

He went back to the water side of the San Marco Place to look if Palmina’s Ship is visible.

The moon made a bright light over Venice and the stars shined friendly.
The lagoon water was calm and the reflection of the moon and the stars looked peacefully.

07 view over the Lagoon in the east direction
07 view over the Lagoon in the east direction

* * *

Palmina went up to see the calm sea on her ship, to fell the soft wind in her beautiful hairs, to see Venice slowly coming.
She played very beautiful on her lute and smiled.

08 first colours bevor the sun rise
08 first colors on the south east horizon before the sun rise

Slowly the horizon turned brighter and in a while the sun will rise over the sea.

Normally the ships coming from outside had to wait up to 40 days in the 16th century till they where allowed to enter the lagoon water of Venice.

But Palma il Giovane could arrange it that the ship which was on his way to Venice could pass without any waiting.
Maybe the Republic of Venice knows also who Palmina’s relatives were and the ship and its passengers were threat as V.I.P.s.

The officers looked surprised as the ship passed the control-harbour near todays „Lido“

„Oh, Look a princess is lute playing… This is the V.I.P. ship we should allow passing and entering the waters of Venice“ –

„How beautiful she plays…“

The Officers looked wondering and looked behind the slowly moving ship.

* * *

Palma standing on the San Marco Place looked expecting in the East direction and played on his Mandolin.

Palmina played coming with her ship – Palma played waiting with his Mandolin – and the are now coming closer and closer – in their hearts there is no physical distance

09 Piazza San Marco at sunrise Venice

Slowly, far on the east-south horizon the sun raised bright and the ship of Palmina was visible.

A few birds flew at the morning sky.

In a few minutes the ship will stand directly on the left side of the left column at the San Marco Place.
Palma smiled and played his Mandolin.

* * *

As they saw this beautiful Peony Gondola Vision Palmina took her Pipa Lute and Palma took his Viola da braccio.

„Let us play our ‚8 Soli for Pipa and Viola'“, Palmina said innocently.

258 Le Zitelle Choir is singing Palma’s Hymnus on Cyprus Island

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

„Palma?“
„Hmm?“
„I do rehearsal so much so my fingers have pain…“

Palma smiled, looked into her beautiful eyes and after a while he took her talented hands and kissed them soft and tender.

After that vision they saw this Peony Gondola Vision:

* * *

Today Palma always looked at the sky and he saw a beautiful cloud heart like that:

  picture 1 – cloud heart at the skydav

„This is a heart from my Pigeon…She thinks on me…“, Palma thought and he looked to the sky.

* * *

Two weeks later.

„Our ship is going the right course. In a few days we are there…“, the Capitain of the Sailing ship said to Palma il Giovane.
A soft wind was now in their face and hairs.
Palma smiled.
Palmina smiled as he saw again a heart on the sky like that:

dav

     picture 2 of heart on the sky

* * *

During Palmina made again rehearsal in her room over the big Place, in Pafos on Cyrus Island she heard suddenly music down at the ancient place.
As Palmina heard the music she felt no paint on her finger.
This time Palmina is doing rehearsal very much on her Lute and  this makes her finger pain a little bit.
But after Palma’s music inspiration for Pianosolo she felt healthy. (Palmina likes to hear this music via the Peony Gondola)

* * *

Today it was again a sunny day, Palmina heard a music outside.
A good girls choir is doing rehearsal down at the big ancient place.

And now they started to make music with all their instruments.

„Oh…this is…“, Palmina said surprised.

She looked out of her window to see the musicians.
She smiled and saw: This is Palma!
My Palma il Giovane is playing the Mandolin! Oh, he playes our secret deep love melody…‘, Palmina said and listened also to the music a while.
„…oh he brought the most famous Singer of Armenia….
What a honour for our small island!
Yes, here on Cyprus Island my mother-side-relative Catharina Cornaio was the last Queen of Zyprus Island in the 15th century and she was also the Queen of Armenia…and  a Byzantine Princess. She was also a honour citizen of the Republic of Venice….“
Palmina smiled and had tears in her eyes.
„Yes, this is my Palma. He comes with the famous Venetian Eurasian Ensemble from Venice  to make a performance for me on that beautiful place here in our city Pafos.
Oh, Signora Ming from the Ming dynasty, living now also at Giudecca Island with her family,  playes the Pipa part…“
This chinese family came once officially protected by the Republic of Venice, from that Pacific Island to move to Venice.
Now Palmina took her own Pipa Lute and started to play the secret love melody together with the performance down at the big place where hundreds of people and children were standing to listen this little open air concert.

All the members of this Venice Titian Art Gallery music ensemble played with all their heart and the people could feel it.
Maybe also because Palmina played in this  moment from her window with her lute happy smiling with them. Palmina’s innocent cheeks turned colourful light-red.
„Oh, my Palma, my composer, my painter, my writer…he took all this long way from Venice with a ship to make a concert for me, to express his sympathy and love to me…Oh, Palma… Oh, my Palma!“, Palmina thought during she played and she made a deep sigh.

And the music she heard was like that:

* * *

After they saw the Peony Gondola Vision they looked out of their Peony Gondola over the colorful  horizon with a beautiful evening sunset at the longest day in the year.

Palmina smiled and she put her head on Palmas side. Palma put his arm around her and kissd her on her head tender

246. Bach’s first secret Inspiration in Arnstadt

246. Bach’s first secret Inspiration in Arnstadt

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

* * *

After 5 weeks a young handsome 18 year old man now stepped in this bakery shop beside the church (Today the Johann Sebatian Bach Church) in Arnstadt and wanted to buy some bread. The bakers daughter was 21 year old, 3 years elder then this man.
Although she did not know that he is the famous Johann Sebastian Bach she was nevertheless very lucky smiling and very friendly as she saw him the first time.
»I take this…and….please I take this little bread, and….could I have this nice little fine fresh breads over there….«
»Of course Sir…«, she said very lucky because he was interested in her new Italian creation.
»…Is this a special creation, this fine bread?«
»Oh, yes, it is a special old baker’s creation from Venice…It was invented by the secret love of the famous painter Palma il Giovane, the Master scholar of Master Titian. She played lute like me…her name was Palmina Albina…«
Johann Sebastian stopped moving as he took the fine white fresh bread in his hands and she was also holding also the same piece with her hands and she smiled. Now he looked up to see her face and to see her eyes, so he realized that she
wear a yellow white traditional cloth.
»Oh, you are a musician! You play the lute…?«, he asked.
»Yes, I studied all the old masters from the 16th century till now and I can play the harpsichord. My mother has one at home…and, and, and I sing Soprano very well..«, she said like an innocent little girl although she was 21 years old.
»5 Weeks ago a great musician played on our new organ as opening concert. He
played so wonderfully. I felt in love but I had never seen him again.«
Johann Sebastian Bach smiled and looked for a long while into her direction. Yes, they are completely alone in this moment, in this little fine bakery shop at Arnstadt beside the church where Bach played.
»Can I have a fresh coffee?«, the young famous organ virtuosi said.
»Of course, sir, please, take a seat over there on the little table I will cook for you fresh coffee«.
Johann Sebastian sat down to the table and felt very inspired.
Inside his heart he heart a storm of music and sound. At this moment something changed inside his heart. Till today Bach wanted only to be a famous Violinist, a famous Organist and a famous harpsichord player.
But now he hears music in his heart and now in this moment he would like to compose a little piece for lute maybe a „Praeludium in C-Major“.
Johann Sebastian Bach understood: Palmina did not only do her Job as baker to make traditional bread every day, SHE CREATED A NEW CREATION: The little fine white fresh breads in Venice – which are known also today in the 18th century at Arnstadt.

This is like a musician not only playing music, but is also making own creation as music compositions.

Johann Sebastian Bach is inspired: »I have to create also an own composition like
the creative bakers daughter…«.
During she cooked smiling the coffee and prepared it so nice Bach felt „at home“,
now sitting here. He took a piece of paper and started to write a piece which is known in the future as „Praeludium in C-Major“ of the „Well tempered piano – part I“.
But in its version for lute. (Bach wrote later several versions about this praeludium in the future).
The bakers daughter stopped working as she saw that his handsome man is now writing his first composition in his life. Yes, this moment is the beginning of over thousands of compositions he will write in the future.

246 Praeludium in C BWV 846

picture – manuscript of Bach’s Praeludium in C- Major, BWV 846

The bakers daughter understood and could feel „SHE is the women who made Johann Sebastian a composer“, she is his Saint Cecilia and she is his inspiration.
Now she brought him the fresh coffee in a nice can and smiled as she saw how fast Bach wrote on his music sheet and that he wrote „Praeludium“ and he wrote „Lute“ on it. She got red on her innocent cheeks and she felt now that she is not a little girl any more.
A mystic warm energy came from heart to heart between him and her.

Bach smiled and the bakers daughter smiled.

* * *

»+++ BREAKING NEWS – BREAKING WORLDPRESS NEWS +++
THE HIGHEST COURT OF THE REPUBLIC OF VENICE DECIDED TO SET FREE CARDINAL BORROMÄUS, KNOWN AS THE PROTECTOR OF CHILDREN AND SACRED MUSIC. +++ BREAKING NEWS – BREAKING WORLDPRESS NEWS +++«

Palmina went this morning along the San Marco Place and bought this fresh printed ‚Worldpress‘ newspaper.

She started reading and said: »Look Palma, they write about you…and,and, the Cardinale will today come to Venice….read, read, looook,look, Palma…“

Palma took the newspaper and read:

»…the highest court announced today that „…it IS NOT A CRIME to help too much poor and ill persons… “ The orders given by Cardinale Hell from the Vatican State to arrest the innocent Cardinal Borromaeus are not accepted by the highest court in order that Cardinale Hell is now declared as officially as criminal.

Cardinale Borromaeus did found a lot of institutions to protect poor children and girls from child prostitution in the tradition to the Saint Nicolaus.
Today he will visit the „Le Zitelle“-institution on Giudecca island and the girls orchestra will play Welcome concert in their church and in their beautiful gardens behind the buildings of the „Santa Maria de la Presentatione“.

The Republic of Venice, the R.O.V, announced a very big fire work to this special day in the history for protection of children, protection of music therapy and art.

 
A NEW TRADITION IS BORN IN VENICE

„This feast should now be that big every year“ the representatives of the R.O.V., the Republic of Venice announced now, „…the feast is a traditional feast as ‚Thank you‘ for surviving the Pest“ – but now we decided to make it as one of the biggest feast in the year in Venice“.

A BIG BRIDGE WILL BE BUILD

Along the new feast there will be a new long bridge only for the duration of the days of the „Il Redentore feast“.
The people can go along the big bridge to go over the water to the „Church il Redentore“.

* * *

After they read the newspaper standing on the San Marco Place a lot of pigeon had landed around them and looked up to them as if they did understand the newspaper.
Now the pigeons flew to the Gondola which was waiting for them at the other end of the San Marco Place.

Both went there and Palmina and Palma entered a Gondola .Palma helped her to enter the Gondola and smiled.

Palmina smiled and said: »Palma, I am so proud on you. Cardinale Borromaeus will visit our „Le Zitelle Orchestra“ on Giudecca and the „Cantico delle Creature“ will be performed, and, and your painting will be presented at the Chiesa Il Redentore.
Oh, Palma, oh, Palma, what a big feast today will be. Oh, I love you, my painter, my composer, my love letter writer, my children protector….“

And Palma and Palmina looked sideways to the island Giudecca and smiled.
Soon the big traditional ‚Il Redentore festival‘ will start here in Venice.

Palmina put her hand on Palma’s hand very tender and Palma could feel it.
Now he looked at her beautiful smiling face. He realised how much he loves her and the sun made her hairs beautiful.

Slowly the Gondola moved to the other side in the direction of Giudecca Island.
They will have a few hours of rehearsal for the concert today at evening.
The innocent girls came all with their music instruments and also the girls and children choir was there.
As they saw Palma and Palmina coming to the Le Zitelle they waved all from their windows.

„Look, Palma and Palmina are coming to make a rehearsal with us. Let us take all our music instruments and come at the concert stage in the garden.

And all the girls and children came in the Le Zitelle Garden to sit at their place on the stage to be ready to make a rehearsal of Palma’s Hymnus.

How often Cardinal Hell tried to pay millions to stop this music-social projects for children. How often he gave a lot of money to people to sabotage this social projects. But now Cardinal Borromaeus is their strong hand of the heaven to stopp this intrigues against these poor children.

And now they made the rehearsal like that:

At he evening the saint Cardinale Borromaeus came and the fireworks in Venice begun and it looked fantastic like that, so that also painters made paintings of this historic moment in modern civilization – to protect children, art and culture.

225. Happy Birthday, Palma il Giovane!

225. Happy Birthday, Palma il Giovane!

picture 1 -Orazio_Gentileschi_-_Saint_Cecilia_Playing_the_Spinnet.png
picture 1 -Orazio_Gentileschi_-_Saint_Cecilia_Playing_the_Spinnet

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

* * *

The next day Palmina had always to think about Palma’s Piano solo he composed for his beloved Palmina, his inspiration, his Saint Cecilia.

Today she had two talented music students at the Gardens of Giudecca.
The mother of the talented girls is also playing a music instrument and it is very creative to teach them music lessons.

As Palmina went back along the Giudecca island to the »Le Zitelle« she teaches also the girls there in music.

Now she has a little break between her music lessons.
Sitting in her official flat in the 3rd floor of the »Le Zitelle« building she is thinking on her Palma, which has today birthday and she sat down on her little table at the window and started to write a Pigeon-letter mail to her Palma il Giovane who lives on the other side of the Lagoon water on the San Marco Place.
From her window she can see directly to the San Marco Place and she smiled.

She looked to the cage of the Letter-Pigeon and smiled to her.

»After my music lessons here, I will go to Palma and celebrate with him his birthday in our Peony Gondola. But first I will send him a Pigeon-letter mail to wish him happy birthday…«, Palmina thought lucky and smiling.

* * *

Palma felt in this moment that she is writing a letter to her and he stopped for a while his painting work at the famous palazzo in Venice.
In his thoughts he could feel, no he could see her sitting beautifully on her table writing a Pigeon-Letter Mail for him.

In his imagination it looks so beautiful and poetic how his sweet Palmina is thinking and writing for him.
Palma cleaned fast his fingers, full of wet colours and took a sheet of paper and a pencil to draw how he feels and sees Palmina in his deep heart Vision.

Palma made a very fast drawing.

picure 4 - drawing by Palma il Giovane

picture – drawing by Palma il Giovane

Yes, Palma is the INVENTOR OF THE DRAWING AS INDEPENDENT ART DISCIPLINE.
Before Palma there was only the tradition that a pencil drawing is only the draft of an oil painting and the drawing has no meaning for art.
Palma was famous for doing fast and very often own drawings and these drawings had been the first time in the history of art defined as a complete independent art discipline.

Palma send her an imaginary cheek kiss and Palmina smiled in this moment and kissed the letter she wrote:

„Venice, Giudecca-Island 16….

My beloved Palma!

Today on your BIRTHDAY, I write you a little Pigeon-Letter-Mail.
I am so lucky that we can see us now every day and I am now a part of your life.
The Pigeon will fly from here at the »Le Zitelle« over the Lagoon water directly to your window at the 2nd floor at the San Marco Place. And no one will destroy the letter. No one will steal the letter. No one will destroy our deep love and our deep music art friendship.
I know that I am inspiring you and that you are always lucky to be creative in painting, composing and writing in order to these inspirations.
Last time we met in our Peony Gondola at 23 o’clock you composed from your heart a music piece I loved so much – The Piano solo –

Palma, thank you!
My composer, my painter and writer…

I would like to tell you that I am planing to play several compositions from you in my little fine concerts.
Today we can speak about this in our Peony Gondola at 23 o’clock celebrating your birthday.

Dear Palma, I am so looking forward to see you!

Happy birthday, dear Palma!

Your you deeply loving

Palmina, your Pigeon, your Saint Cecilia“

And as they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina took her Lute and played for him being with him in this beautiful Peony Gondola.

And suddenly a text appeared written in an old Chinese language like this on the evening sky.

說萬物者莫說乎澤,*)

„Of all that forces that GIVE JOY things, there is no more gladdening than the LAKE ☱.“

And then Palma took his Viola music instrument and Palmina took her Pipa Lute and they made together music at their Peony Gondola hour at 23 o’clock like this about the image of „LAKE, the joyous“ :
