160. Again their the last hours and a white angel
And they continued to dream their Peony-Gondola-Dream and they saw this at 11 p.m.:
* * *
And the Choir and the Musicians continued to make music during the feast mass in the San Marco Cathedral in Venice.
Palmina smiled from the music-gallery on the left upper side down to Palma who is very lucky to see her and to hear her performing his artwork.
The famous Cardinale Borromeo listened to Palma’s music compositions very interested.
»He is not only painting very good, he is also composing sacred music…Why a so famous painter of Venice, like Jacopo Palma il Giovane is composing this music…?
Hm, maybe he is in love and he is composing for a women to express his love for her… Composing for love…So beautiful…
Maybe a music dedication to a musician like the Lute Playing Girl? Or it is a dedication to Emperor Rudolf II or also a dedication to me? Hm, interesting, interesting… Yes, yes, I learned now something from him: Music will save the world once… I am sure! Palma is right – Palestrina, the famous composer in Rome; I have to order that he has to compose a Holy Mass for Rome! – That’s a good idea, Palma…«, Cardinale Borromeo was inspired to hear that music and was silently thinking.
And they heard also the »Benedictus« which was sung by Mihaela, Palma’s talented cousin, and she was very lucky and she smiled and smiled as she wants to jump of luckiness in the air because she is the first Mezzo-Soprano to perform this music in music history. Palmina played the Lute-part (it can be played also by a Pipa lute).

* * *
And as they listened this music in their Peony Vision Palmina smiled and looked into Palma’s eyes.
And they saw now this in their Peony Vision:
* * *
Palmina had a big success in the San Marco Cathedral and in order to that she got an official Invitation to play with the »La Zitelle Chamber Orchestra«, the LZCO to have a concert in Vienna, Austria, the city of music.
But that means again an new sponsored concert tour.
But sponsored by whom? Who gives so much money to lead again Palmina out of the Republic of Venice? And again Palma can not see Palmina for a long time. What a pity!
Palma was lucky that his »Benedictus« was a big success in Venice, also for Palmina, but it means also that Palmina is on concert-tour for long.
She will not be in the morning at the little fine bakery store to sell mothers fine fresh little Venetian breads and to meet Palma there in the morning to smile for him.
And for her: It means not to see Palma painting in the San Antonin Church and not to play for him at the scaffolding.
It means also not to see her in the little atelier at the »Fondamenta dei Furlani« House Nr. 3291« where Palma paints during Palmina is playing for hours for him to inspire him.
It means also for them: Not to see each other at the beautiful Garden of »Giardino«. Not to speak to each other. Not to write to each other (As long the criminals of the dark sugar earth Administrators are not arrested by the Republic no letter will be un-stolen by them).
But they have the Peony Gondola !!!
* * *
Today Palma will finish his famous painting »La Pieta« and Palmina will play the last day before she is invited to travel to Vienna, to give a concert for mighty Emperor Rudolf II, the emperor of Austria.
picture 2 – »La Pieta by Palma in Giovane«
»Palmina, you played so beautiful here in my little atelier… Your little sweet compositions for me are so amazing. I love you Palmina!
He laid his paint brush to the side and looked a last time on his finished painting.
Palmina said: »Well done, Jacopo Palma il Giovane. You painted me also wonderfully with my red concert cloth and with golden hairs like on Master Titians »Pieta«.
And Palma took Palmina’s talented hands and kissed her carefully several times.
»And I have to thank this talented hands that they played over 40 minutes music for me now. Thank you my Pigeon.«
»Oh Palma, its ok. I like you Palma, you know, it makes me lucky to inspire you and to help you to go your way here in Venice.«.
»Yes, my pigeon, my inspiration, my deep love.«
Palma kissed her arms several times.
Now they are the last time alone and they hugged deeply and tender and long.
Yes, after today’s invitation at the Giudecca Island, and they will go there, there where the gardens of the Chinese friends are, there where the members Family of the Ming Dynasty are living, after that concert they will not be alone. Tomorrow Palmina will leave Venice for a long time to travel to Vienna with the »La Zitelle Chamber Orchestra« to make it famous in Europe.
Today they will meet at afternoon tea time at the Chinese Ming Family, with princess Lin and all the famous artists of the Ming Dynasty who survived the military attack against the Ming in the year 1583.
Maybe in later years, at peaceful times, they can go to China an live there as artists with big honours.
Today there will be a friendship concert – for a friendship between the mighty Republic of Venice and family members of the Ming-Dynasty.
The Chinese musician will play traditional Asian Music and the La Zitelle Chamber orchestra will play European and traditional Venice music pieces.
Today they can speak with Master Lao, who is a wise old man who can tell them some of his Visions he had last night.
mnigPalma and Palmina, after they hugged and kissed full of sympathy and love, they went both along the »Fondamenta del Furlani« along the San Antonin Church, along the big place »Campo Bandiera e Moro« to visit mum in the bakers shop, to get some fine fresh breads, to go along the »Calle de la Pieta« in the direction to the long Promenade »Riva degli Schiavoni«.
They went slowly along the clear sea water in the south direction to the famous »Giardino« garden.
There was also the bank to sit in front of the statue and they sat down again like on other important days in their life.
Palma hugged her. He kissed her on her cheek. She smiled but both were silent and they know, these are their last hours to be alone together.
How often they sat here on this bank and looked to the stars. How often they drove with the Peony Gondola to the Moon-palace to visit the Moon Princess Chang’e and how often they visited planet Mars to great the Mars princess there in their common Peony-Dreams.
Yes, their dreams are sometimes more real then some real days which seems to be sometimes unreal and hard.
How much people died in the last century in Venice on the pest… 30 precent of the people died in Venice. Therefore the Venetian Republic build the »Chiesa Il Redentore« Church on Giudecca Island as »thank you« for surviving that hard time and the Republic ordered also paintings by Palma il Giovane for that beautiful Church.
¹ »Chiesa Il Redentore« – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Il_Redentore
»Il Redentore was built as a votive church in thanksgiving for deliverance from a major outbreak of the plague that decimated Venice between 1575 and 1576, in which some 46,000 people (25–30% of the population) died.«
»Il Redentore contains paintings by Francesco Bassano, Lazzaro Bastiani, Carlo Saraceni, Leandro Bassano, PALMA IL GIOVANE, Jacopo Bassano, Francesco Bissolo, Rocco Marconi, Paolo Veronese, Alvise Vivarini and the workshop of Tintoretto. «
* * *
Exactly this thoughts were also spoken at the friendship concert at the Gardens on Giudecca Island where the Chinese People are living under the protection of the Republic of Venice.
»…and we also are thankful for surviving the pest and also the attacks by the dark sugar earth network here in Venice like you, my Chinese friends, you also survived the war attacks of the Qing Dynasty, who will now own whole China for a long time. So we are thankful for your invitation and your beautiful friendship concert…«, Cardinale Carolus Borromeo continued to speak:
»…and we can announce that there will be a charity concert in Vienna against child-prostitution by our La Zitelle Chamber Orchestra and if some of you will come with them to Vienna to see this beautiful old city and to listen our concerts there the Republic of Venice will send a lot of Bodyguards to protect you during your travel. Palmina Albina, our best Lute player will have 6000 Varanguards to protect her during her concert travel to Vienna…«.
And all spectators applauded here in the big wild gardens of Giudecca-Island.
The buildings and gardens are surrounded by walls and a lot of Soldiers are protecting all entrances: Chinese Soldiers in traditional Ming-Dynasty-Uniforms and Venetian Soldiers, and also some Varanguards for Palmina are standing to protect them all.
* * *
The afternoon concert went very well. Palmina played also a solo composed by Palma and a solo composed by Palmina on her lutes.
After the concerts a lot of Chinese servants brought fresh cooked Chinese traditional food, some specially adapted for the European taste.
Palma went to the stage to see Palmina and he asked the musicians if he can try out the traditional Asian Instruments.
»Oh, you know how to hold a traditional Pipa¹ lute and to make a few tones…?« a very young Chinese musician in white traditional Asian cloth said friendly smiling.
She allowed him to play on her Pipa and Palma played and (he tried it) played.
»Thank you, Xie Xie«, Palma said smiling after he played (tryed) a long time
Later Palma tried the traditional GuZheng² instrument and made some tones.
»Oh, that’s interesting…I would like to learn to play…«
¹ Pipa – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pipa
² GuZheng – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guzheng
The musician smiled and said »Signore Palma il Giovane, you painted us so beautiful in the last years here in Venice. If we can take painting lessons from you, here in our gardens we would feel very honoured. If you like, our talented princess can teach you and show you the secrets of our Asian culture and arts, especially of our music. They would love to explain you how this instruments are played. And…, and if you like you can write some music for our little Ming-Dynasty-Orchestra…«
And Palma was surprised for this friendly invitation.
»Palma, say yes! This is a big honour…!«, Palmina said.
Palmina was 2 years in China at the pacific island and learned not only the language a little bit, she knows how Asian people are fealing inside their heart.
»During I am in Vienna you will be here with the Ming Dynasty Family, here on that little beautiful secure Island in our Republic.«
Palma made a big sigh because he will miss Palmina and agreed to that big honour of cultural exchange.
Yes, Palma wants to learn about Asian cultures. Palmina lived on that Pacific Island for years. It is now a part of Palmina’s live and experience. He wants to understand this because he loves her.
»Yes, we have to learn from each other. The East from us West and we, West from your Eastern traditions.«
The little musician in the white beautiful cloth said: »Marco Polo was a Venetian and he married a Buddhist nun, a real Chinese Princess and lived here on that Island with her, the Chinese legend is telling.«
And as he saw that her eyes shined very beautifully Palma begun to study her eyes to be prepared to paint her and to teach her and to give her painting lessons in the future.
»I see you both are understanding very well, hm?«, Palmina said and hoped that Palma will manage now the time without her here in Venice.
»And..and…can I have some Violin lessons by your mother…Xíng ma?« the little Chinese Princess asked innocent and hoped that Palma will say yes.
* * *
The beautiful and ceremonial afternoon transformed into a long evening with lanterns – Chinese lanterns and Venetian Lanterns – with Chinese music and Venetian music from the 16th century.
It was a little fine feast and all enjoyed it but Palma did know that if Palmina will now go to Vienna with her orchestra and some Chinese delegation Palma will be again lonely for a long time.
Again it is a sponsored concert tour. Will Palma again have to wait on Palmina for years?
* * *
And after they saw this Peony-Vision at this 23 o clock time (11 p.m.) they dreamed what they say today at the »Giardino«-Garden. Palmina and Palma remembered this and they saw this in their Peony Vision sitting together now at the Peony-Gondola:
* * *
Today they saw a white Pigeon at the Giardino of South Venice and the Pigeon landed on a leave.
picture 3 – white pigeon
In their dream the Pigeon spoke to them with a soft voice:
»Dear Palma and Palmina! Be careful the next time! The Criminal Church of Security took money from the Administrators of the Dark Sugar Earth Network to make an attack to you. Don’t go alone on the streets of Venice. Stay at the Chinese Family at their gardens. For a while the Titian Art School should take place there. Till the secret service of the republic found out and arrest the criminals of the international child-prostitution network stay at them as long as you can. There are good security Elite-soldiers protecting you. Chinese Soldiers and Venetian Soldiers and Varangian Guards¹!«
¹ Varangian Guard -Wikipedia –
»The Varangian Guard (Greek: Τάγμα τῶν Βαράγγων, Tágma tōn Varángōn) was an elite unit of the Byzantine Army, from the 10th to the 14th centuries, whose members served as personal bodyguards to the Byzantine Emperors.«
Palma and Palmina looked surprised to the white speaking pigeon.
»And you Palmina, be careful: One of the Bodyguards is a FAKE BODYGUARD and he is paid by the international child-prostitution-network of the Dark Sugar Earth Dealers. He wants to isolate you and destroy your concert-career in Vienna. He has orders not to allow cultural exchange with the famous artists of Vienna so that no one will know your name as lute player in music history. Don’t trust him, don’t eat his dark sugar earth. He cancels your artist contacts and meetings without your permission! And don’t be alone with a man or a fake priest (an »Ostary³« which wears false priest cloth). The false Bodyguard will try to isolate you the whole concert in order to destroy your future music career. Don’t be alone with any man in a room also if this bodyguard said that this is expected from you otherwise you will loose your position as solist. Order always two, listen: two soldiers to protect you: A Chinese Soldier and an European Soldier. Good luck Palma and Palmina. Groo, Grooooo.«.
³ »Ostiarius« – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ostiarius
Is NOT priest, »In the Roman Catholic Church, this „porter“ became the lowest of the four minor orders prescribed by the Council of Trent. This was the first order a seminarian…«
picture 4 – starting white pigeon
After that the white Pigeon started to fly high in the heaven and was not seen after a while.
picture 5 – heart leave
As Palma looked down to earth he saw that old leave.
It had a tiny hole like a heart.
»The white Pigeon showed us to find this symbol of an old, old, old love, my Wang Chun chao – my Marco-Polo Princess, My Du Liniang, My Palmina, my white Pigeon.«
Palmina laid her head on Palma’s beating heart and Palma reacted with putting his strong arm around his little Palmina Albina.
She thought also on the old vision of the little yellow canary bird in the wooden cage who will inspire the most famous composer of Europe to do his artwork in over 100 years.
And they heard now this mystic music:
