And Palmina saw again the soft flight along the Planet Mars and the moments at the Mars library and they had a lot of Music Visions during this music.
* * *
»Oh, this is interesting! To see what happened with the music and culture live in Venice hundred years after our century, Palma?«
»Yes, really, but we have to be silent and not to talk about what we have seen to any body, you know…«
»I tell no one, Palma…«
»This morning I got a bird message from you Palmina? Did you…?«
»Yes, Palma I sent you a massage, but the extremists, this intrigant people, erased it after I send it. So I asked the birds to bring you my message in bird language…«
»Thank you for your bird message… So lovely. The birds say also that the message you sent was erased and you have been not happy about that, isn’t it, Palmina?«
»Yes, my Palma il Giovane. I am so lucky that we have our Peony Gondola. Thanks to the HEAVEN!«
And Palma and Palmina hugged each other short but tender and both could feel it and both smiled.
»Let us see what happened to the ‚Ospedale de La Pieta Orphan Music School and Orphan Girl’s Orchestra in Venice over hundred years after you have been music teacher there and let us see if they remember my composition which I wrote once for them, the ‚Missa Ospedale de La Pieta di Venice«
»Oh, yes, Palma ‚Missa Ospedale de La Pieta di Venice‘ is composed in G – Magior!!! – This music we performed together with the Orphan’s Girls there in Venice.
✮ ✮ ✮
And now they continued to dream their Peony Gondola Vision and they saw this:
At the place Campo Bandiera e Moro the windows opened suddenly.
»Maestro Bach? Johann Sebastian Bach is here in Venice?“, the people on the place who are looking out of the windows said and where surprised and greeted very happy.
„What a big honour!“, someone said.
„Johann Sebastian Bach in Venezia. Benvegno Maestro Bach!!!“
Antonio Vivaldi said to a little girl: »…Alora, Palmina, subito, subito…come over here…Fast, say to the other girls: they should come back to greet Maestro Johann Sebastian Bach with music – He is back in Venice!!!!…Fast, call them back!!….«.
And the beautiful young girls came after a while, shy laughing, running back the ‚Calle de la Pieta‘ , with their music instruments and formed a little group like a choir at the place »Bandiera e Moro« standing before Bach.
Antonio Vivaldi said: »Come, my angels, now we sing the ‚Welcome Cantata‘ for Maestro Johann Sebastian Bach!«.
»Oooooh, the famous Johann Sebastian Bach with his wife and 3 daughters…« the girls whispered with big open mouth and eyes.
And padre Maestro Antonio Vivaldi raised his hands like as sever choir master and as he saw that all his little girls (and the elder girls also) were ready to sing he gave the signal to start to sing the ‚Welcome Cantata‘ for Johann Sebastian Bach.
And they sung really like angels and Bach smiled and his family beside him – Anna Magdalena, Dorothea, Elisabeth, Johanna Carolina – at the table smiled also lucky and inside their hearts they were a little bit proud about their composer Johann Sebastian.
Especially Johanna Carolina looked very interested how Vivaldi is conducting his girls choir. Yes, she knows now: She wants to learn as fast as she can all in musics: playing instruments, her lute, the violin, and a lot of instruments, composing, making variations about a melody, and so on…
»I want also be a female musician like them. I want to learn everything from my Daddy…«, Johanna Carolina thought secretly.
»Aren’t they like angels? Much better then our boys choir in Leipzig? This clear soft female voices…
»Men should only sing Tenor and Bass and girls should sing Soprano and Alto.«, Bach thought in this moment.
Antonio Vivaldi realized as first musician in Europe that the voices of girls are more exact than the voices of little boys like – also in Leipzig – and they can sing longer, more years than the boys. If the boys are turning slowly to be a man their voice is changing for a long time and is turning to a lower level of pitch and they can not sing Soprano and Alto in the choir any more.
»I can understand why the Austrian People want to hear his choir in Vienna…they are brilliant!
… I have to give Vivaldi a Cantata from me, perhaps they are performing it…« Johann Sebastian whispered to his wife Anna Magdalena Bach.
»Perhaps the ‚Coffee Cantate‘ about our daughter Lieschen (Elisabeth) which wanted to marry her future husband Altnikol.«, Anna Magdalena whispered to him funny smiling.
And after they sung very good for Master Johann Sebastian Bach they said »Welcome Maestro Bach to Venice!!« and they made a respectful gesture and smiled.
»Maestro Bach! Oh, please give us an auto-graph here on our music score!!!«
»Oh, please for me also and, and for my little sister…she loves your compositions so much!
We have no parents and padre Vivaldi is like a father for us…
Now we had the honour to sing for you…
Please sign us an autograph on the music score here…
as remembering for that historic moment in Venice…« an elder girl, which was grown like a young women, said.
»…Yes, here also for me…«,
And the girls wanted to have all a signature, as autograph from the famous Johann Sebastian Bach and forgot that they are all hungry after the long rehearsal in the church Chiesa San Giovanni in Bragora¹).

»Palma il Giovane – The Peony Gondola« here:
»You are right, Palma«, Palmina said proud, »no one can take this Venice in our hearts away from us…«
They hold their hands and went slowly in the soft evening which was slowly coming and the light of the sky turned colourful inspiring.
Colours which can be important for a painter…
* * *
Palma had an idea and took some music score he composed and without any explanation the Peony Gondola moved for a short while 300 or 400 years in the future.
Palma saw a few musicians playing something and wrote down the music making a copy.
After that the Peony Gondola moved back to the 16th century at this romantic special evening walk at Giudecca.
And they continued to dream and they saw this:
* * *
During Palma and Palmina walked in the south direction they saw a few Gondolieri sitting on the street with their music instruments.
Palma said to Palmina:»Wait here, Palmina. I have a surprise for you…«
Palmina looked shy and waited.
Palma went to the 5 musicians and asked them something whispering.
„Can you play this music?“
„Fa bene Signore, as you will, we can play your composition.
For your bella Signorina, hmmm?“, said one of the Gondoliers.
Palma smiled and the musicians took the music sheets and they started to play Palma’s composition which he played for Palmina once as Mandolin solo being with her alone in the Peony Gondola.
During they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina said:»Oh, Palma what a music surprise. This is the music we will hear in 300 or 400 years if we meet us again…
Thank you for this beautiful music surprise to me….«
»Yes, a little thank you that you played my compositions for me. You remember the 8 Soli for your instrument, 40 minutes of music….«
»Oh, yes I remember, a few years ago, the Spring Melody in the solo Nr. 4…«
As they listened this music Palmina put her head on Palma’s side and the Peony Gondola started to move along the side of Giudecca island where they made their evening walks and then the Peony Gondola took off to flew soft and slow under the evening sky of Venice.
They saw all the beauty of Venice in these moments.
Palma smiled and Palmina smiled.
Since Palmina read Palma’s love letter Nr. 261 short before 11 p.m. yesterday, both are feeling a warm light in their hearts.
Yes, the Peony Gondola connects them beyond time and space.

»Palma il Giovane – The Peony Gondola« here:
Now they continued to dream their Peony Gondola Dream like that:
picture 01 – Palma’s window’s in the 2nd floor beside the building of the astronomical clock
* * *
Palma stood slowly up and opened the cage of his Letter-mail-Pigeon to give her the Mail for Palmina.
He took the snow-white Pigeon in his hands and kissed her tender and he let her flew over the San Marco Place.
picture 02 – This view is seen a little bit more left than from Palma’s windows in the 2nd floor
After she made a little round she flew directly over the Lagoon water to Palmina’s official music-teaching flat at the »Le Zitelle«.
picture 03 – View from San Marco Place in Venice to Giorgio Maggiore (ready edification at 1610)
Palmina is now ready with all her music lessons and the Gondolier will come in a few minutes to pick her up and bring her to Palma’s family flat on San Marco Place.
Suddenly someone knocked on her wooden door of her flat.
picture 04 – View to Palmina’s flat at the »Le Zitelle« in the 3rd floor on the left side (in this picture there is light at two windows)
Palmina asked and heard the voice of the last music student from today coming back very excited.
Palmina opened the door and let her again in her flat back:
Palmina has lit on the candle light because the day is slowly turning to a nice evening – Palma’s birthday…
But the girl was excited and said:
»Dear Signorina Palmina, my music teacher! I have an urgent question to you.
I come here only for the music lesson and I am not yet living here at the Le Zitelle like the other girls here but, but, but…«, The young beautiful but shy and sad girl asked.
»Oh, normally I have to go after I have finished my music lessons on le Zitelle and I will celebrate the birthday of our Jacopo Palma il Giovane…«, Palmina answered.
»…no,no, only short, I have only a short important question. I do not know what I should do now.«,
»So what is your question to me…«
»..yes, the friend of my (father/brother?) is urging to give me liquid sugar in my drink and always saying this is healthy for me…
But, but…after a few hours I am loosing my remembering. So I do not know what happened with me in the last hours… I feel so strange, by body…what happened with me…«
»..you are not remembering…?«
»Yes, It is always after I drink a glass of water with that sugar…It feels so strange«
»..yes it is strange, isn’t it? I can not remember what happened…and the next day a person wearing false priest cloth like it is usual at the Carnevale in Venice, is getting a lot of money from the (friend/brother) of my father…and this happens very often the last years….Palmina, Palmina, who can help me?….«
And the girl felt on the knees, like being in-front of a Saint.
»Oh, come up..sit down here…I can give you a contact here on the Le Zitelle which can give you professional help. You know this foundation, which was founded at 1500 here in Venice from the Mighty Doges Family Loredan and especially this church building was later also founded from a fine family member of the Loredans. They give you professional help in that case – Here you are secure – We have body guards from the Republic of Venice to protect all girls we are helping, some are living here, you know…«
The girl hugged Palmina as if she is her spiritual mother and Palmina closed her eyes and understood the dangerous situation in which the beautiful girl is now living with his family.
»One question? Is this sugar called „dark sugar earth“…«
»Dark sugar earth? Yes, I could listen the words of the false priest, wearing actor priest cloths, speaking of the World Wide expention of the Church of Dark Sugar Earth…
I read in the newspaper that this illegal church is a dangerous social network, with contacts to dangerous administrators… one was arrested, a cardinal or so and all his criminal helpers earning money from child-prostitution…with that money they are expanding their fake-religion. A Mrs. Cambridge founded it in Spain or so, inspired by non-christian radical religions business group from south Spain or so, I am not sure…«, the girl excited said.
»Oh, I see…I know, I read it in the newspaper, they arrested a ‚big fish‘ of the administrators of this social network… The criminal administrators wanted that the good Cardinal, Cardinale Wang, or is his name Cardinale Carolus Borromäus*) should be arrested because he helped to save all these poor girls, girls like you and our Le Zitelle Girls he at »Santa Maria de la Presentatione«, here on Giudecca Island…Here I give you the name and address…Don’t talk to your brother…or was it your father?..your father’s brother?,…or your fathers friend…Talk to nobody …AND DO NOT DRINK WATER with SUGAR!!!«, Palmina said like a sever teacher but very friendly with her soft and beautiful voice
»…But wait, today at Palma’s birthday the Person will be at the special guests concert in Palmina’s family flat where I am living now…You can come with me to the feast and I will arrange the contact…«
*) Carolus Borromaus, was arrested because of helping children against child-prostitution with founding helping institutions within the catholic church
(Official there was told that he helped ill people too much so they made this as ‚reason‘ to arrest him).
He saved the Sacred Music Tradition of Europe within the ‚Council of Trient‘ while the radical groups wanted to shut down any religions music in all churches worldwide.
»Woow, what, I, I…your little poor music student girl..? I can come to the fine V.I.P. concert on Palma’s birthday on San Marco Place!!!«, the beautiful and poor girl said and jumped in the air several times.
»But, I will give you some cloth from me. Over there, you see these fine cloth?… you should wear it this evening. it is a very fine family, you know…
Jacopo Palma il Giovane is a very fine man and has the biggest heart of Venice, especially for the Le Zitelle girls….
I think he will also give you a job as model in the Titian Painting school and he will paint you beautifully as saint or saint virgin and so…«
And the little girl jumped again several times in the air and hugged Palmina smiling and she was so lucky to have Palmina as her music teacher like a music therapist.
In this moment Palma’s fast Letter Pigeon flew on Palmina’s window in the 3rd floor.
picture 05 – view at Palmina’s music teaching flat at the »Le Zitelle« on Giudecca Island (A ‚Gondola‘ is arriving to pick Palmina up)
»Come! Palma wrote me a letter…
Go and try this beautiful cloth…
hurry up..we are late..
The ‚Gondolieri‘ is coming, I see him from the window…He is coming to pick us up and he will bring us to San Marco Place in a few minutes…
Yes, take this cloth and I will read fast the Signore Jacopo Palma’s Letter….«, Palmina fast organized.
Yes, Palmina was clever and fast organizing. She could be decent an carefully with her music students like a music therapist. Always she takes care, also not only of the music pedagogic development; also she takes care of the psychic situation of her girl students.
Palmina read the letter slowly and smiled standing on her window and looking to the direction of the San Marco Place.
* * *
Palma stood also at the window and felt that Palmina is reading his letter and it felt so warm in his heart to be connected with her.
picture 06 – View direct to the San Marco Place (the windows of Palma’s flat are visible)
* * *
And after they saw this beautiful Peony Gondola Vision, Palmina put her head on Palma’s side and she wanted to hear what Palma’s heart is now composing music for Organ and Violin and they saw a Vision and they saw musicians at an Organ standing in 300 or 400 years in the future.
They continued to dream their Peony Gondola Vision and they saw this:
* * *
Palma went fast home at his flat on San Marco Place to get the Pigeon-Letter-Mail.
And as he arrived and opened his window in the second floor and the snow-white Letter-Mail-Pigeon waited and made friendly „Groo, Groooooo“. Palma smiled and took her carefully in her hands.
Now he opened her letter and read it.
Palma’s eyes where very lucky and he sat down to his table and continued to read her beautiful Pigeon-Mail.
Then he looked out of his window. From here he can not see the windows of Palmina’s flat in the 3rd floor on Giudecca Island but he feels that she is also standing now at the window and smiling.
Palma looked into the direction of Giorgio Maggiore and said:
»The church of »Isola San Giorgio Maggiore« is complete erected. This is a symbol of our love…I have to answer Palmina on her letter…«
Palma kissed the letter and he started fast to write an answer:
Thank you, I received your Pigeon-Mail,
I also can’t wait to be with you in our Peony Gondola at 23 o’clock.
Today the breakfast you made on my birthday was so nice, especially the music you played for me on my bed with your lutes.
You made a new composition for me and you made a nice variation of my composition for your lutes.
I hear it the whole day during my painting work in my remembering, in my deep heart.
Thank you Palmina.
And today at midday you and Michaela made such a good lunch for me, and you made the first celebration on this birthday for me.
Mihaela made a surprise, you know, she searched the »happy birthday music version in my language – in Veneto!«.
As you saw Crezia and Julia made two paintings for me – So nice – My daughter like you very much, You all women are all my personal angels since my wife died and I am a lonely man.
I am locking forward to celebrate my birthday with you – You are now a part of my family.
I love you my sweet pigeon,
my inspiration, my Santa Cecilia
Your you deeply loving
Jacopo Palma il Giovane
PS: Do you think that Natalie from Russia, you know the talented Organ Playing musician, will come to our nice birthday feast in our big flat on San Marco Place and play with us some music with our family? Mihaela said her mother was at the ospedaletto and is not well, let’s pray for her mother. Mihaela is praying for her…«
* * *
And as they saw this Peony Vision Palma and Palmina hugged and kissed soft and they remembered the beautiful house concert for Palma’s birthday at his home:
And Palma and Palmina looked this concert together in this Peony Vision:
224. Palma tunes his harpsichord after Palmina’s lute
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 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 (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, 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. 
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 ofMaximilian 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.

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.
Some well-known well temperaments go by the following names:
Werckmeister temperament (invented by Andreas Werckmeister)
French Temperament Ordinaire
Vallotti (invented by Francesco Antonio Vallotti)
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.
picture – Maria de la Presentatione – Le Zitelle on Giudecca Island, Venice
And they continued to see their Peony Gondola Visions:
Dear Palma! We arrived now Vienna, the world city of music and culture! How beautiful it is there! It is a complete other world than on my island. On Giudecca-Island in Venice there I love to live there and in Venice, but Vienna is also beautiful! The travel from Venice to Vienna was hard. I am not used to travel with a coach, I prefer to move with Gondolas. (It is more soft and harmonic to move with a Gondola)
And I miss you sitting together with you in our Gondola. But today at 23 o’clock we will meet each other and I give you this letter because it is faster to send a letter via the Peony Gondola.
And something special happened today, listen Palma:
There was a false Body-guard ho tried to pay 2000 Swiss Franken to the president of the society which is organising our concert in Vienna against international-child-prostitution. But the President, he is not from Austria, is strong and made a criminal report to the local authorities. The secret service of our Republic of Venice found out that this false body guard tried to steal the identity of a real body guard and he wanted to sell dark sugar to the girls of our little fine Le Zitelle Chamber Orchestra. The police came an arrested him and all girls were happy because this body guard started to touch the girl in an un-fine and respect-less way and the girls were afraid from him because his father is a rich man, a big member of the dark sugar network administrators who steals the letters of girls and also from us.
As protest against the sabotage of our little concert in Vienna the president announced to organize a BIG CONCERT with philharmonic musicians with your »Cantico delle Creature« in a Franciscan church in Venice. It could happen that in Venice in the church chiesa dei »Frari« where the big painting of Master Titian »Assunta Maria« is and where your famous and large painting of the Saint Catarina is. Wooo, I am so looking forward to this concert in Venice, I hope I can play your 8 Lute Soli which you dedicated to me in your »Cantico delle Creature«.
It will be a big manifest against international child prostitution! The European and Asian musicians of our Island are standing behind you, Palma!
Today we will have our first concert here in Vienna,
Looking forward to see you again on our Peony-Gondola at 23 o’clock…
with much love
your Pigeon, your inspiration, your little canary bird, your angel your Saint Cecilia, your little Pipa Princess Wang Chun Chao your Y…ou loving Palmina«
* * *
Palma smiled as Palmina finished reading her short letter to Palma from Vienna.
He put his strong arm around Palmina and she gave her head on his side.
»Thank you, Palmina. Such a nice letter. And such nice news. The false body guard is arrested…«
»…How was my day today: Here is my letter to you, today I wrote for you: Venice, 15…
Today I had my teaching lessons in the gardens of the Chinese Ming-Dinasty family on Giudecca-Island. They learn to draw and paint in European tradition. Also they are learning European music instruments, and they are very talented. Two Asian women I started to paint as Saint Women. Later I will show you the paintings. They explain me the Asian music instruments and I like the Asian music also. My painting students came also to the lesson there in the gardens. The Asian musicians want to found a Dao-Ying-Yang-Chinese-Garden-Orchestra combined with European musicians and they are asking me to compose an Eurasian-Artwork in music like I painted the Asian women a little bit Eurasian in my paintings. You remember my painting of princess Lin…?
Today we see us in the Peony Gondola at 23 o’clock.
Your, You deeply loving Jacopo Palma il Giovane«
»Oh, great Palma! I have so much remembering on the »Creative Music Afternoons« at Giudecca-Island with you and your mother teaching the poor little children without parents music and the »Cantico delle Creature«. I am so proud of you, Palma!«, Palmina said and gave Palma a tender cheek kiss on his right cheek and smiled very friendly.
»Yes, I remember the concert in late spring of the year 1594 at the Le Zitelle. The Le Zitelle Institution at the Jesuits on Guidecca was sponsored by the famous family Loredan ¹«
picture - Palma painted the founder family Loredan¹
of the le Zitelle Institution on Giudecca
(chiesa Maria de le Presentatione)
¹ The founder of the Le Zitelle Institution on Giudecca-Island. Link – https://www.gioiellinascostidivenezia.it/i-gioielli/chiesa-delle-zitelle/ »Chiesa collegata al pio luogo delle Zitelle, fondato a metà del 1500, destinato all’educazione di giovani donne povere ma molto belle per le quali la propria avvenenza poteva essere motivo di perdizione e di avvio prostituzione.«
»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. « – wilipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Le_Zitelle
»I remember all the girls and musicians….
There was little Irena – she learned to play the Viola by me like little Petra – and it was Irena’s inspiration to play the A-Sting and the D-String on the Viola during the »sora aqua« part of my Cantico delle Creature. We had then the idea to let all little children play on their children-Violins (my mother organized the little-children violins for the children) only on the A-String and the D-String.
»Yes, it was a very creative afternoon at this year. We played also the beginning of the Cantico with the »ad te solo-Melody«. Yes and the very little children clapped with their hands around going in the circle and Mrs. Petja from Bulgaria helped them. She was a painting student of mine in the Titian-Art-School and painted Jesus very well. I asked her to support the La-Zitelle music-social projects because the children are poor and needy.
»Yes, she did her job very well.«, Palmina said
»And I remember Mrs. Elisabetha, also a Le Zitelle Girl….«, Palmina exited said.
Yes, she was forced by her sever father to sing in restaurants and to stay with old man in a room alone. The man wear false priest cloths to hide his identity. As Elizabetha run away, and as she escaped from her sever father, who always beat her with violence and tried to give her dark sugar, she took a Gondola to Giudecca Island at the Jesuits and asked if she can stay at the Le Zitelle for the next years not to be a child-prostitute. Therefore she got a singer and music education and was soon a member of the Venice-Titian-Art-Gallery and could also support music-projects with her voice.
»Yes, she sung with the little girls at this Creative Music afternoon your Cantico and the »Kyrie« of your »Prager Messe«. Cardinale Carolus Boromaeo liked this music so much as he visited Venice once and held his sever speech against international child-prostitution.«
»…and I remember the girls, Manuela, who learn so good to play the Lute – my best lute – student!«, Palmina said proud.
»…Yes she is a good musician, but she also learned very good to play the Violin, and the harpsichord. I think she liked you Palma. Women can feel this…«, Palma added
»…also little Sonja, she sung very good in our children-choir and little Petra, but she was tall grown…She learned Viola da braccio from me…and little Nino – he learned Violin…So much children grew up there and also the children without parents – the Le Zitelle institution sponsored also creative music-social projects for children without parents²…«
² an institution like a modern children-village
And the Peony Gondola showed them the remembering-visions of the year 1594 at Venice.
»The children look all so happy to do this CREATIVE MUSIC AFTERNOON…«, Palmina said and hugged Palma with her left hand and Palma could feel her and was happy.
»…no wonder that the criminal organisation of the »Church of Secure Crime – CSC« or and its children-prostitution networks form the dark sugar network administrators wanted to pay over 25.000 International Dollars to destroy this Institutions with lies and intrigues and tried to sabotage of their concerts in Vienna. «, Palma said.
»I am so proud of you Palma for composing this Cantico delle Creature for children.«
And Palmina put her soft hand tender on Palma’s left hand, smiled and looked Palma into his eyes. Palmina said »Pi-« Palma answered »-Pa« Now both said »Liu – to – kiss!« and kissed soft and tender on their lips and closed their eyes. And as they did so they saw a Peony-Vision of a CREATIVE-MUSIC-AFTERNOON with children at the children Village at Vienna in exactly 400 years in the future and they say this little Peony-Vision of the »Cantico delle Creature« for Children and they saw this:

³ This historic villa was donated to give to the children without parents a house and to create a children village in Hinterbrühl near Vienna in Austria.
The Creative-Music-Afternoons had been organized since the 12.April of 1980 by Prof. Renate and Gerald Spitzner
Fondamenta Zitelle, Giudecca
Chiesa di Santa Maria della Presentazione “Le Zitelle”
»Realizzata su progetto di Andrea Palladio, gode di una delle più belle e privilegiate viste su Piazza San Marco.
Chiesa collegata al pio luogo delle Zitelle, fondato a metà del 1500, destinato all’educazione di giovani donne povere ma molto belle per le quali la propria avvenenza poteva essere motivo di perdizione e di avvio prostituzione.
Le prime quaranta “zitelle” si stabilirono nell’isola della Giudecca (nel palazzo appartenuto alla famiglia Loredan) nel 1561, riunite in comunità da alcune nobildonne veneziane su ispirazione dei padri Gesuiti. Nel 1574 fu presentato un primo progetto di costruzione del nuovo ‘collegio laico’ dove le giovani avrebbero trovato vitto, alloggio e istruzione fino al raggiungimento della maggiore età. Il progetto palladiano
La chiesa venne edificata dopo gli anni della peste, dal 1581 al 1585, con l’assistenza dei proti Bartolomeo Manopola e Simon Sorella, per poi essere consacrata nel 1588. Nonostante la mancanza di documenti si può attribuite il progetto ad Andrea Palladio, anche se la prima pietra fu collocata in loco un anno dopo la morte del noto architetto.«
»L’interno, a pianta poligonale, è arricchito da dipinti di Jacopo Palma il Giovane (Orazione nell’orto con, ai piedi, i committenti Pasquale ed Elisabetta Foppa), di Antonio Vassillachi (San Francesco inginocchiato al cospetto della Vergine con il Bambino e il procuratore Federico Contarini) e di Francesco Bassano (Presentazione della Vergine al tempio).«
L’architettura si rifà alla forma del tempio votivo a pianta centrale, trasformato in fase di costruzione per rispondere all’esigenza di inglobare la chiesa entro le ali dell’ospizio. Ciò che possiamo vedere oggi è una facciata a tempio sormontata da una grande cupola affiancata da due campaniletti: la parte inferiore della facciata si apre su due piccole, mentre in quello superiore è movimentata dall’apertura dell’ampia finestra termale a semicerchio.

READ ALSO THE NEW CHAPTER »OF UNCLE VILLY – BACK TO EARTH«:
I remember at one evening as we came back from our little walk at the near wood. We had to cross the high-way bridge to come back to the streets where all the villas are, the diplomatic district of the city. After a while, it was going to be evening, uncle Villy, uncle Pepi, Aunt Bea, Aunt Zdenka, uncle Pavel (her husband), mum suddenly stopped, Our little dog Mischa looked up to the sky. We all looked now up to the sky. There was a little red point.
We all knew it, this is Planet Mars.
Uncle Villy made a big and long sigh. All knew it, but nobody wanted to talk about in the public, on the streets. Although nearly nobody was on the street…but the Mars-Story of our family is not for all to know…
Only special readers are allowed in a few decades to listen to my little remembering.
Uncle Pepi took his hand and laid his hand on his shoulder and smiled to him.
His eyes said to him wordless: »You did your best…Now they are all heroes…It is a miracle that you are today with us…we are all very thankful for that…«
Uncle Villy looked back up to Mars and made again a long sigh.
As I saw them standing there I asked suddenly in this silence: »Ludevit will come today and show us his new paintings from Planet Mars…«
And I jumped in the air very happy trying to reach Planet Mars with my little hands as little children sometimes do.
* * *
As we came back on that evening, going down the silent, peacefull diplomat-district to our family villa, I went a little round in our garden and played cosmonaut with my children toys.
I sniffed again on our garden roses from aunt Fanny and aunt Sophie – they were botanic specialists – then I went into our house to be with our family at the dining salon.
They spoke about literature and music till Ludevit came.
* * *
Later as Ludevit was also ready with evening dinner he went up with Uncle Villy to show him his new paintings from planet Mars.
»This I like very much…«, Uncle Villy said.
picture – Planet Mars painting
And they talked and talked about their new book about the Mars Mission.
I did not understand them, it was to complicate for me as a little child. But as they spoke about three orange suns and blue flames and Organ Music on Mars I was very interested.
»And there are really 3 Orange Suns and blue flames on Mars, and, and organ music…?«
»Oh, Gerald, we are now discussing if we should write it in the book or not because some could say this is not scientific enough…«, Uncle Villy said.
»But Villy, you wrote, that as you saw the 3 suns on Mars it was like a WELCOME on MARS…«, Ludevit said as positive argument.
»Yes, we write it because we think that the reader can interprete the feelings of the astronauts by themself…It reflects also the feeling they had as they saw this miracle…«, Ludevit answered.
Villy said: »To say that the astronauts saw these 3 orange suns is for them like to be welcome on Planet Mars…«
»Ludevit, you are a space-artist and I am a space-astronomer, a scientist. We are working together to write down this story of the first men on Mars in modern history. I understand that we can not write only the scientific facts that I wrote down in these hundreds of papers I had to write down and to calculate. There must be something which is MORE then only a daily logbook of a space astronomer, (in our story a log book of a space-doctor). Only an artist can describe how astronauts had seen the surface of our brother planet Mars…Your painting is great… Gerald…, Ludevit paintings are amazing, Isn’t it Gerald?«
And they flew with their Peony-Gondola along the stars at the evening sky.
Palmina laid her head on Palma’s side and said: »I go now sleeping. Good night.« »Oh, Good night. I will compose during you are sleeping.«, Palma answered. »Wow, great, my Palma, my composer and writer…« And she send him a tender kiss and Palma could receive it and she hold his right hand and Palma could feel it and he was lucky to feel her.
Palma wrote some notes on his music score and Palmina could feel and see him in her heart writing for her a composition.
Palmina smiled. Yes, she is really looking forward to get a new composition by her Jacopo Palma il Giovane.
It was their common secret and no one has the right to destroy such a beautiful heart-to-heart music-painting friendship, isn’t it ?; and why should this make any sense and for whom?
And they continued to dream at this 23 o’clock ( 11 p.m.) and they saw this:
* * *
Palmina wrote and smiled with shining eyes:
I am now writing during my concert-tour travelling to Vienna.
I hope I can see you soon!
In 15 hours we will arrive Vienna, the world city of culture and music!
How fine that our »La Zitelle Chamber Orchestra« can play a charity concert there against international child-prostitution.
How wise is Master Lao! He could warn us: There are criminal enemy’s who wants to destroy our communication and our La Zitelle Chamber Orchestra. Therefore we have so much soldiers and bodyguards. I am carefully not to be influenced by a fake-bodyguard. I order always two body guards, so in the worse case only one is a fake-bodyguard and the other is a areal one…
I think I could figure out who is the fake-bodyguard, who is paid by the dark sugar earth network administrators and who wants to isolate me from contacts to other artists in Vienna.
I hope the criminals are not stealing my letters which I wrote to you.
I always write a copy so that I can give you my copy today in our Peony-Gondola hour today at 23 o’clock (11 p.m.).
How thankful I am that I can see you daily in our Peony-Gondola, the timeless, spaceless dimension. YES, no criminal evil soul is allowed to enter.
I am always thinking on you, my dear music-painting friend, since we spoke the first time in this live.
Our friendship is something that goes beyond primitive rules or traditions.The results of our friendship will have a positive influence of the world’s history, I believe…
We both like traditions and we both love them, because we are artists and to be an artist it means to know them, but I know: Art means not only tradition, but also tradition.
So this is your mission in Venice as artist as Master Scholar of Master Titian and I will always be with you to help you like a flying pigeon or a little bird in a cage beside your composing harpsichord.
More important it is that we THINK ON EACH OTHER and that we like us and that we love us.
How was your first painting lessons at the gardens of the Ming dynasty family?
Are they listening to you, are they talented?
Did you learn a little bit about Asian Art and music, especially the music instruments?
I can’t wait to see and to feel and to hear your heart beating at 11 p.m.
With much love and tenderness,
Your white Pigeon, your little yellow canary bird,
Your you loving Palmina«
* * *
And after they saw this Vision Palmina tried to touch Palma’s right hand and he could feel it and she kissed soft on his right cheek and he could feel it.
Every time she made this Palma smiled and he tried also to hold her hand and to kiss her soft.
The Peony-Gondola helped to unite them; to exchange ideas and feelings; to exchange love and light. In this Gondola there is no distance between two loving souls.
It is the best basic for a common cultural exchange.
»Why we don’t make a common composition?«
»A common composition?«
»Yes. Listen, Palma:
I mean YOU start to compose a few notes and then I compose a few notes as ANSWER…«
»Ah, good!… and then I compose again a few notes!
THAT’S A GOOD IDEA! Let’s do this in our Peony Gondola.«
»Yes. Palma, let us make a music dialogue of our hearts and write this down.
We are the first in music history doing this!«
»Yes, we are also the first in music history who loves deeply from our hearts without any support by…«
»…psst, don’t say it. My mum likes you and your mum likes me…«
Palma smiled and hold his strong arm around her and she laid her head on Palma’s right side to listen his heart and to be near to him. She gives him warm feeling and he gives her warm feelings even it is outside in the world sometimes cold and hard.
And they dreamed both now in music tones as an inner-heart dialogue and the Peony Gondola flew along the stars at the evening sky.
And as they flew along the stars at the evening sky they heard a music piece like that:
picture – traditional Chinese Wood-engraving Artwork
And they continued to dream their Peony-Gondola Dream and they saw this:
* * *
Palmina took her Pipa Lute and played the »Thinking on each other Melody« which Palma composed for her. Always if Palmina thought intensive on her Palma il Giovane she played this melody on her Pipa Lute or Venetian Lute.
Suddenly Palma felt a warm tender feeling in and around his heart. It felt like a Peony-Pink-Cyan White light.
Palm felt that Palmina is able to huge Palma only with her love and light fully thoughts.
Palma started suddenly to smile as he realized that and he started to think on her and he played the same Melody on his Viola to express his love for her.
After that he wrote:
»Venice, 15 – –
Today I could feel deeply in my heart that you wrote me a message.
Sure the criminal administrators of the dark sugar earth social network erased it so I will not get any message. Maybe European laws will soon control them and judge them as we all expect it.
How good that we meet today in our Peony Gondola.
I miss you so much. I can’t wait to meet you again in the Peony Gondola.
Today I will hold my painting lesson at the gardens on Giudecca Island. I hope my students can follow my teaching.
I will also learn about Asian painting traditions, especially about traditional Chinese Wood-engraving Artwork. And sure Master Lao will tell us more about cultural traditions…
There are also a lot of Buddhist nuns, some are very,very young and they will held a prayer ceremony in the rooms of the Gardens of the Ming Dynasty Family on Giudecca Island in Venice.
That remembers me on Marco Polo.
Marco Polo was long time in China and was also a high grade politician and governor, personally selected by the Chinese Emperor.
On his way to the Emperor Marco Polo felt in love in a little young buddhist nun, the Chinese Princess. Later he married her and brought her to Venice and lived secretly there in the Gardens of Giudecca Island behind the well protected Walls.
Yes, Palmina, Marco Polo loves her, I mean he loves you, I mean he is still loving you, my inspiring Pigeon and secret princess.
Today a Pigeon was flying and looking like the saint spirit pigeon. She flew directly over me. Maybe a sign or an inspiring moment…
I am writing down the music we heard as we hugged so long in our Gondola.
61. Palmina is inspiring like a saint spirit pigeon
And during Palmina is travelling to Vienna she thought deeply secretly in her heart on her Palma il Giovane at 23 o clock, 11 p.m.
Palma did the same in this moment.
They feel so connected with their »Peony Gondola«.
Palmina smiled to Palma and Palma smiled to Palmina.
Palmina hold Palma’s right hand and he could feel it.
Palma thought on the blessings by Saint Carolus Borromeo and his saint words:
»May always be a saint spirit pigeon with you…«
And he remembers that he saw Palmina smiling during he had a vision of a Saint spirit Pigeon. And it was exactly this smile now in this moment by Palmina.
As he kissed Palmina tender in their Peony Gondola Palma and Palmina had the same amazing innerheart-Peony-Vision of the saint spirit pigeon.
They heard the composition »qui ex patre« and »qui cum patre« which describes the golden orange light, the energy, the metaphysic meaning of the saint spirit pigeon in music.
Palma should write this music down during Palmina is in Vienna. He should write it down for the future.
And they hugged during this whole music very long. They did not stop to love deeply from »heart to heart« as spiritual love.
* * *
And they saw in a Vision Saint Carolus Borromeo who helped that this music will once be played in the famous St. Carlschurch¹ in Vienna in the future of music history.
»This church was also created by the inspiration of a deep love between the architect and his secred love«
»St. Karl Borromäus, commonly called the Karlskirche (English: St. Charles Church), is a baroque church located on the south side of Karlsplatz in Vienna, Austria. Widely considered the most outstanding baroque church in Vienna, as well as one of the city’s greatest buildings, the church is dedicated to Saint Charles Borromeo, one of the great counter-reformers of the sixteenth century«
