71. 6000 Pigeons helping Palma and Palmina

picture 1 – Pigeon by Palma il Giovane

And as they sung the »Peony Gondola Song« for Palmina’s birthday in the gardens of the Jesuits at the small, little Giudecca-isIand in Venice (direct in front of the St. Marco Place) the Pigeons who crowded meanwhile on the St. Marco Place started all together to fly directly to Giudecca-Island. Thousands of Pigeons flew…

All the guests in the gardens saw this and observed that all the Pigeons landed softly in the gardens.

One Pigeon flew to Palmina and she hold it and one Pigeon flew to Palma and he hold the bird.

The Pigeons send a »heart-to-heart« – message to them: »Palmina and Palma!
We are your letter-pigeons. We are 6000 Pigeons. We will transmit you a message between you both. Only think on us and we will come, or a few or one of us will come. Happy birthday Palmina! Don’t be sad if Mr. Cambridge’s organisation erases your letters. They are criminals and soon all in prisons. Mr. Cambridge will be judged official and his Organisation will be forbidden in whole Europe. We will help you to stay in contact and we great you Palma and Palmina…«

Both thought now the same: »Yes, these animals are helping us to send letters and no one can read and steal and manipulate the text of our private messages.
We searched a secure way of exchanging letters… Thank you friends…«

As Palma and Palmina felt that they both thought the same in that moment,
he send her a secret »heart-to-heart« music message as »music-flower«

And Palmina opened her beautiful Chinese umbrella, a present of Princess Lin from China. After that she took her Chinese Lute Pipa and played the »Spring melody« beautifully like that:

All musicians and artists on the St.Marco Place and the honour guests of all over the world, standing at the balcony of the Dogan’s Palace, applauded.
Palmina smiled and played the melody again.

As Palma and Palmina saw this in their Peony Gondola at the 23rd hour of the day (11 p.m.) both continued to hug each other.
»How much beautiful music and painting adventure we had here in Venice…«
– »Yes, my Palma… my Painter.. my big and unique love…
Let us stay together… no separation… I missed you also at our long break, as my parents moved to Cyprus Island.
…It is a beautiful Island, but Mr. Cambridge stole all letters of the people living there. So we lived unfree and isolated till we had to leave that island and came back to Venice. It was too dangerous and the influence of the »Church of Security« from Mr. Cambridge was too dangerous for our family. They wanted always our family’s money… I am sure Mr. Cambridge and his »Security Organisation« will be made responsible for the lost of that island and will be made responsible that the R.O.V. is no more the government of that beautiful island.
…Every day, I missed you, my Palma, my composer, my painter, my only love…«
»I missed you… But as I looked to the stars I thought always about you and your beautiful lute playing. I wished only to see you again…That I can continue to compose for you…to draw you…that you are my secret model for all my sacred paintings…“
»I painted so much women, but you are the first who opened my heart…especially with your lute playing…

002 picture – San Marco Place (above) and »Le Zitelle« (below) with green gardens

Did you remember the day as you played in the church »Le Zitelle« *) nearby the San Giorgio Maggiore on Venetian Island Giudecca, direct on the opposite side from the Saint Marco Place?
A Jesuit from the monastery came, and asked you…«

– »…Yes, yes…I remember.. he asked me what the music is about…
and I said to him that this music piece is describing a painting of Palma il Giovane…and then the Jesuits wanted also to have a painting from you for their new church…«

Yes, Palmina played beautifully in that church on her lute a music composed by Palma and varied by Palmina, and this lead to a painting**) for that church…
Earlier Palmina was invited to play for the poor women to educate them in singing and musics. The Jesuits helped young women to get education and to prevent prostitution.***)

»The Zitelle almshouse and the church of Santa Maria della Presentazione were founded with the noble purpose of offering refuge, assistance, and an honest trade (lace making) to poor girls who, for their good looks, were likely to be forced into prostitution. […]
A first project for the construction of a new lay almshouse providing room, board, and an education to girls who had still not come of age was presented in 1574.«

»Le Zitelle (officially Santa Maria della Presentazione) is a church in Venice, Italy. It is part of a former complex which gave shelter to young maidens („zitelle“ in Italian) who had no dowry, and is located in the easternmost part of the Giudecca island.
Generally attributed to Andrea Palladio, the original design dates to 1579-1580 and the construction to 1586. Its housing edifice surrounds the church in a horseshoe shape, with a court behind the apse.«

Now at this 23rd hour of the day (11 p.m.) they continued to dream their dream and they saw this:

011 picture – Venice light evening impression (St. Marco Place is left outside of the image)

As Palma entered again the big Gondola in which the smiling beloved Palmina waited for him, they saw together all musicians and singers standing on the St. Marco Place.
Now the 30 Gondoliers went with their mandolins to each gondola with a few shining lanterns in different colours.
15 Gondolas of them drove now to the small long island Giudecca, starting from the left side of Palma’s and Palmina’s Gondola, and 15 Gondolas drove in the same direction starting from the rights side of them.
As Palmina and Palma looked into the direction of Island Giudecca they saw the lanterns of the 30 Gondolas forming 2 lines, driving on the lagoon waters of the »Canale Grande«.
So the 30 Gondolas made a beautiful street of lanterns in the water directing all Gondolas from San Marco Place to the place where the Zitelle*) in 4 or 8 years will be build, where the Jesuit monastery and the beautiful gardens are there.

010 picture – Gonoliers moving the Gondola

Palma knocked 2 times and the Gondolier started to drive along and between the water street of the 30 Gondolas with their lanterns.
Palmina smiled and said:
»My Palma…my painter…my composer…my big and only love…
How creative you are. You are so creative to make this beautiful ceremony for me on my birthday…«
– »Yes, thank you, Palmina..you know, I love you also so much…
I want to carry you in my arms…with your Pipa.
…and with your Gondola…I love you so much…«
– »Palma?… Me and my Pipa… AND my Gondola…?
Isn’t that a little bit to much…Palma?«
»Ok, I will hold and carry you, on my arms with your Pipa, my princess…«

011 picture

Palmina smiled and played on her Lute the »Spring Melody« which Palma composed for her.
The Gondolier tried also to play this Melody on their Mandolin, standing on their Gondolas with the lanterns, holding their positions on the Canale Grande.
Palma was so lucky to see all the lanterns on the Water, left and right to her Gondola which is heading to Guidecca at the Zitelle*).

012 picture – here will be build within 8 years the church »Chiesa di Santa Maria della Presentazione (Le Zitelle)«

Palmina put her head on Palmas side. Palma put his arm around her and moved his head to her head.

»How did you arrange this. Palma?«

»It is a secret, but I love you and it is our common secret:
I have connections to the R.O.V. – The Republic of Venice – and they make it possible that the Jesuit monastery will now realize your idea: You know, it was your idea,.. years ago, as we had a walk there, as usual and you spoke with the Jesuit monks, you asked to create some plans of building a church there….The Government of Venice will support them now to built it very fast.
As »thank you« they will allow to use their gardens for special welcome evening events of the Dogan’s Palace. Today, on your birthday, we will celebrate the first opening feast here with all honour guests of Venice, which also wants to celebrate your birthday with our artists…The Jesuit monastery will make this using of their gardens possible for »all life-time« also for our Venice-Titian-Art-Gallery as »thank you« for supporting the building of the church ‚Zitadelle‘. Maybe in 4 or 8 years the church will be finished….«

013 picture – by Canaletto – left San Marco Place and right Giudecca with the ‚Zitadelle‘

– »Oh really…?
Palma, this is fantastic!
My idea!…To build a church for the poor women and to make concerts there in the garden for them and in the church… Thank you Palma, you made this possible…
This are good news on my birthday!…
I love you… my painter…my composer…my one and only love…«

Palmina kissed him tender on his cheek several times.
Suddenly a little firework started from S.Marco Place and behind the Gardens of the monastery on the little, small island of Giudecca.
Palmina looked like an innocent dear and kissed Palma again.
»You are so sweet to me…«

014 picture – left San Marco Place and right Giudecca with the ‚Zitadelle‘

As they looked behind their Gondola they saw that all guests and artists followed them with their big Gondolas along the »30-Lantern-Gondola-Water-Way«.
They all came:
The Dogan, the emperor Rudolf II, Princess Lin from China, the Queen of Thailand, Prince and princess of Bangladesh, from Nepal, and a lot of Asian and European countries came with their Gondola driving behind them.
»So beautifully…Palma, so beautifully..thank you…thank you…thank you Palma!«

015 picture

As they reached the gardens behind the monastery and all the honour guests arrived, the feast continued with cultural dedications from all countries of the friends of the Republic of Venice.
The Jesuits monks and the sisters made today special cooking for this beautifully evening.
Michaela (Palma’s beautiful Cousin) brought her very young little talented son and he sung an aria for Palmina.
All representative of their culture showed their culture: dancing, singing, playing their instruments from Europe and Asia. They repeated the „Inspiration“-music piece which Palma composed for Pipa, Violin and Viola.
Palmina was very, very, lucky to see how Palma loves also to compose for Pipa-Lute.
Finally all wanted to hear a short piece from Palmina played on her lute.
And Palmina played wonderfully and her eyes shined and her heart was deeply connected with Palma’s heart and the golden light was again all over around here, in the garden with all the lights of the hundreds of lanterns in different colours and the mystic light…

And as the late evening came and all stars shined above them the sung again this for Palmina:

They saw in their Peony Gondola-Vision this:

Palma gave now the starting signal and the music started beautifully like that:

Palmina opened her curtain sitting in the big Gondola.
What she saw was a big group of musicians standing on the St. Marco Place between the big two columns before the St.Marco Cathedral, here in Venice looking to Palmina’s Gondola on the Venetian water.
Palma conducted with his painting brush, used as bâton, and they sung and played beautifully for Palmina. All the 30 Mandolin playing Gondoliers of Venice played now in the new „mandolin tremolo style“ imitating a Pipa-Lute-tremolo.

02 picture – Venice Dogan’s Palace

»..How fine!… Oh my Palma!… My composer!
…This is our Peony Gondola Love-Song!!
…Our symbol of our eternal love for all centuries…
…Palma loves me…
….even after 400 years…
…I remember the moment as he composed it in the Gondola: He painted me playing my lute…and he said that this melody is a music-drawing of me, drawn as melody…
My Palma, my composer, …my painter…always creative…
Such a beautiful birthday surprise…
I did not expect this…“, Palmina thought and send this to him as »heart-to-heart« message.

03 picture – Palmina saw this maybe

Palma smiled as he got her secret »heart-to-heart« message during he was conducting the Choir and Orchestra.
His heart answered to her: »Yes, Palmina, this is for you… a secret dedication for my secret principessa, on your secret birthday… I love you, Palmina…«
A lot of hundreds of Pigeons flew in this evening sky over the big famous Saint Marco Place.
During the music performance the pigeons landed on the place.
And more and more Pigeons came flying to listen to the music.
The music of Palma il Giovane could be heart at all over Venice.

04 picture – view to the San Marco Place from other places of Venice

And even the inhabitants of the other little islands in front of the Saint Marco place could silently hear the music.
They opened their windows on the islands and looked along the Laguna to see what’s up at the St. Marco place and they saw a lot of lanterns shining in Peony colours.
»Here is a miracle happening. See that pigeons are all coming to listen to the evening concert at the St.Marco place in Venice«, the people said.
Palmina smiled and had tears of joy in her eyes.

»It is maybe the secret birthday feast for the secret princess…«

She understood what this means, what Palma wants to say to her with the language of music.

During the music the honour guests of Venice came in the 1st floor at the balustrade at the Dogan’s palace to listen to the secret music surprise. They understood that secret gesture.
The Dogan, Emperor Rudolf II, Princess Lin, The Queen of Thailand, Palmina’s mother, yes she was also invited as honour guest, and a lot of representative of their culture and countries where listening from the balcony of the Dogan’s palace.

As the »Peony Gondola Song« was finished the musicians said: »Tanti Auguri! Happy birthday! Sheng ri kuai le, princess Palmina!“

All musicians and the honour guests applauded and said loud and often »Bravi, bravi, bravi…Happy bithday!…tanti auguri!…..Palmina principessa High! Altina, high, high!«
The pigeons started all together to fly over the big place into the evening sky along the soft coloured evening sky where the first stars shined for them between some pink little clouds.

* * *

And as they saw this in their Peony Gondola Vision at their 23rd hour of the day ( 11 p.m.) they smiled and hugged themselves deeply tender and their hearts connected strongly and they breath slowly and soft.

»Whatever comes, let us stay to each other. Let us think this is like the edification of the church on the island San Giorgio Maggiore: It is build slowly but continuous….
One day she will be edification and finished.«, Palma said to her.
– »YES! Let us stay together whatever will come. 400 years ago I was your miracle Chinese princess and you my Venetian Marco Polo. We had problems. But not even separation through time and space could stop our deep love. A miracle happened…
Finally we found us through art music and inspiration and we both moved to Venice…Yes, it is a continuous edification of our love…like the church of San Giorgio Maggiore…«

And they kissed each other on the cheeks and hugged deeply and long.
They lied side by side in their Peony Gondola holding themselves, beside their music instruments Viola and Pipa.
A big soft pink Peony flower appeared on the sky in this moment. Palma and Palmina understood: This was a blessing sign from above.

67. Palmina’s music surprise for Palma at her concert

67. Palmina’s music surprise for Palma at her concert

And after he kissed her talented hands decently but full of love and tenderness, they saw in their Peony-Vision, in their Peony Gondola, how the late afternoon at the Dogan’s palace on this day went on:

* * *

It was a fine late afternoon. With all the cultural presentations of a lot of cultures of Europe and Asia. The late-afternoon dinner was also very fine and nice.
As usual Palma held the conversations with all the international guests. After a time he looked with his eyes decently to Palmina over all that fine decorated tables.
He wanted to go to her table but both had to leave the dinner earlier then the others, to go to the recent preparations at the Venice-Titian-Art-Galery.
A selection of honour guests, like the emperor Rudolf II, Princess Lin, the Queen of Thailand, and a lot of other representative of their country and culture will later come to the presentations in the Art-Gallery.

Palmina will play a few soli on her lute.
As she looked smiling in Palma’s direction she thought: »Oh, how sweet this was from my Palma…this little music-surprise…Violin, Viola and Pipa…He knows that I play and love Pipa…He composed it because he loves me and my instrument…I will play today – he does not know it – a Pipa solo which he composed for me… I tried to ask him sending a letter if it is ok, if I play it at a concert…But the letter he never got. Mr. Cambridge an his »Security Organisation« «stole this letter and tried to manipulate the text of our messages…till we used the letter-pigeons…I will surprise Palma with this performance today. Today on my concert…Today on my birthday..«

Palma smiled also. He felt that she had positive thoughts for him.
After their short dinner they left the dinner to go to the gallery.
As usual they took the »secret unofficial entrance« of the Dogan’s Palace.
The Guardians saluted military, but with friendliness as they passed the exit.

Now they went at this very late afternoon – it was rather an early evening – along the »Salizida S. Provolo« to get the fastest way to the Art-Gallery at the »Campo S.Provolo« where a lot of musicians waited for them.

Palma and Palmina went side on side and smiled. Their hearts had both secrets with them. Palmina will surprise him with playing his Pipa solo at the Gallery and Palma will surprise Palmina with a music surprise bringing her there with a Gondola.

They smiled at each other and looked wordless at each other during they walked through Venice – the city of Art and heartfelt Love.

Also the guardians saluted as they came in the first floor of the Venice-Titian-Art-Gallery.

»How was it? Did the concert went fine?«, Palma’s Mum and Palma’s Cousin Michaela asked exited. »Did our prayers help?«, Michaela asked and folded her hands and smiled friendly.

»Yes, yes, thank you, it went fine. Thank you for your prayers for me.«, Palmina said with her sweet soft voice.
»Palmina played 1¼ hour without a break. A miracle happened…«, Palma said

»The paintings of Palma il Giovane are prepared for the presentation for Rudolf II…«, said a servant.
Today Rudolf II wants to order some paintings of Palma il Giovane. Palmina will play to the presentation on her Lutes.

* * *

As Palmina saw this in the Peony-Vision she gave Palma a cheek kiss, tender decently, but heartfelt. Palma was lucky about her tender kiss an his cheek
And they saw this in their Peony-Vision at the 23rd hour (11 p.m.):

* * *

And this early evening in the Gallery went also fine:

The honour guests came.
* Palmina played for Palma’s artwork presentation very beautifully.
* The Queen of Thailand hold her speech about the daily using of the „Kripa-Chacra“ for care of health.

»Use the Kripa-Chacra every day 5 minutes a day for your health. It helps much…« she and her doctor explained.

* Master Lao explained the 8 Images of the I-GING. (known in Asia and Europe)
* Palma explained some stories about the life of Master Titian:
»And in the life of Master Titian there was a Lute playing lady who inspired him to finish his last artwork ‚The Pieta‘. He ordered the best Lute Player Lady of the Republic of Venice – the R.O.V. «.
As he said that, he smiled to Palmina and she smiled back.
So now their hearts connected from heart-to-heart.
She knows that Palma is not only inventing a story to express his sympathy and to express his secret love for her – Palmina really played the last 3-4 years at Master Titian and Palma helped to finish the painting.

Palma continued: »…The daily Lute-playing-concert of Palmina was a ‚daily music therapy‘. Our Lute player Palmina played for Master Titan in his last living years during he was painting.

»OOOOOh…really? …what a big honour…«,
»…she played for Master Titian….«,
»…a daily music therapy concert..«,
»…how beautiful she is dressed…«,
»…the best lute player of the R.O.V…«,
»…she is inspiring to big artworks…«, all the guests said from Asia and from Europe.

Rudolf II was very interested about the story of the mystic lute player lady. He was very interested in arts and has a big collection of artworks and music instruments in Prague.

»…and now we have a special presentation of the Lute Pipa from Asia…«, Palma announced.

Palmina took her Pipa-Lute and explained the instrument to the audience.
All guests looked interested and listened what Palmina explained.

After she played an original classical Chinese music piece she said:
„And now I will play a composition which was specially composed for this Instrument by an European Composer describing the Image of the Sea after the 5000 year old book of change, the »I-GING« “

Palma looked surprised, but he understood: Palmina will play the Solo Nr.5 of his Composition »8 Soli for Pipa« and he thought: »I am the first composer from Europe who composed for this instrument…but composed a Viola part to this solo« – Palma stood up, took his Viola da braccio and went also on the stage.

Palmina looked understanding. She could read in his heart: »Palmina, I will play the Viola Part of this solo with you now…«

Palmina smiled and they started to play the version for Pipa and Viola beautifully like that:
