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.

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“ :

223. Traditional Dialogue of Cultures in Venice

 

picture 01 - Palma_il_Giovane_-_Doge_Pietro_Loredan_Beseeching_the_Virgin_-_WGA16909
picture – Palma il Giovane -Doge Pietro Loredan*) Beseeching the Virgin (Wikipedia)

This Painting by Palma il Giovane is on the big famous Dogan“s Palace (Palazzo Ducale) where always delegations of different cultures officially had a intercultural friendship event as peace DIALOGUE between the mighty Republic of Venice and the business partners from all over the world like Europe, Asia and Africa.

* * *

They continued to dream their Peony Gondola Vision like that:

* * *

„Oh, so much Cultures we have on this world. Fantastic!!!!l „, Palmina said like a young girl with her soft fine voice and continued smiling with this asian-like beautiful eyes:

„…this beautiful different cultures with their different music and art traditions,… fantastic…
our world is so big, I would like to huge it ..“, Palmina said and hugged Palma.

„..this beautiful cultures are often visiting Venice, our mighty Republic of Venice the – R.O.V. and I often play at the welcome concert in the Dogan’s Palace on our San Marco Place…often an artwork from you or from me…“, Palmina said euphoric.

„…From all over the world the representative of their culture are coming and greeting our Republic from Europe Asia, Africa. From Thailand, Vietnam, Bangladesh, China, Cipan (Japan), Korea, Philippines, Russia…Armenia, Cyprus- Byzantium…bringing a message to us of peace and friendship…They want all a peacefull relation, a cultural dialogue to our mighty Republic of Venice and of course good economic relations with us Europeans…“, Palma said very wise.

picture 03

picture 2-3 – detail of Palmas painting in the Palazzo Ducale (Dogan’s Palace) in Venice

„So it is important that all cultures are in a harmonic peaceful relation…in a good DIALOGUE!
…Palma, didn’t you compose a music dialogue for Chinese lute Pipa (or other Chinese or other Asian Instruments) and Viola da braccio as the Chinese delegation did visit our Republic with their huge Chinese ships, waiting outside the „Lido“, coming with hundreds of guests to bring a peaceful culture program, a cultural exchange dialogue concert? Didn’t you?“

„Oh yes, I will never forget this. It was years ago…Oh, Palmina, my Dialogue for Pipa琵琶 and Viola. Do you remember the begining melody?“, Palma asked.

Palmina took her Lute and plugged slowly and smiling with shining eyes, only a girl or a women has, if she is loving…

G-d-e-a

Palmina smiled to Palma and send to his heart a warm and golden, tender light energy playing her lute.

Palma could feel this also in his deep heart.

After that,now Palma took his Viola and plugged:

c-g-d‘-a‘

„Do you remember, Palmina?“

„Yes, your composition you wrote as Dialogue for my instrument and your instrument…It was dedicated as dialogue between the East Cultures and the West Cultures between the Ming Dynasty representatives and Venice.
Yes, Palma, I remember very good and I love this creation from you very much!“

picture – (detail) Palma paints his own flat in the 2nd floor on the San Marco Place as autobiographic link

Palmina gave Palma a tender kiss on his cheek and Palma could feel this.

Now Palma composed deep in his heart a music reflection and variation to the main „Dialogue Music Theme“, the main melody of this dialogue composition like that and Palmina put her head and Palma’s side to hear this music coming directly from Palma’s heart and what she listened was this:

*) Pietro Loredan

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pietro_Loredan_(doge)

Pietro Loredan (born Venice, Italy 1482 – died Venice, 3 May 1570) was the 84th Doge of Venice. He reigned from 1567 to 1570.

172. »Mars passing the Neptune moon system« in 400 years

172. »Mars passing the Neptune moon system« in 400 years

picture - Neptune seen from its Moon Triton, who has the same size than planet Mars

picture – Neptune seen from its Moon Triton, who has the same size than planet Mars

»Oh wonderful, Palma. A whole cosmic Organ music piece, played only for me. I love you. I am so proud of you.«

»In around 400 years, on the 7th of December of the year 2018 will be a special day: Mars passing the Neptune moon system«

And Palmina hold Palma’s right hand and he could feel it and Palma was lucky.

»2 days ago you played for me on your Pipa. Thank you, Palmina. My heart could feel it. It was a wonderful music. From your heart to my heart. I love you my Inspiration, my Saint Cecilia, my Pipa princess Wang Chao-chun. 王昭君«

»Oh, it is ok. I love you too. Even we can not see us we can think on each other every day, if you also want, Palma… my painter, my composer, my writer, my astronomer. Hm, I think you are a little astronomer….«, Palmina answered smiling.
»Neptune is the planet of music and art…«, Palma kissed Palmina, tender soft and short.

Now the Peony Gondola started to move to a new vision in 400 years:

And they saw at 23 o‘ clock together in their Peony Gondola suddenly the same astronomic event from three cosmic perspectives:

»Look at that three perspectives:…«, Palma il Giovane explained to his beloved Palmina

» 1. View from the moon Phobos¹ of Planet Mars. Phobos is moving within 7,5 hours one time around Planet Mars (3x times a Mars-day or earth day).

2. View from moon Triton of planet Neptune. This moon Triton² has the same size like planet Mars and also a thin atmosphere. (We can say a planet like Mars is moving around Neptune)

3. View from moon Despina of Neptune. Despina is much nearer to Neptune as Triton and is moving around Neptune very fast…«

Palmina put her head and his side and he put his arm around her during this Peony Vision in their Peony Gondola.
And suddenly they heard in their vision a music which was inspired by Palma’s Saint Cecilia and Saint Lucy. Saint Cecilia inspired this composition like a little tweeting yellow canary bird.

Both felt the inspiration:

VIDEO ² : [ » Mars passing the Neptune moon system«]  https://youtu.be/u-4Hqa437qA

(to be continued…)


¹ Phobos – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phobos_(moon)

»Phobos (/ˈfoʊbəs/ FOH-bəs, /-bɒs/ -boss,[4] from Greek Φόβος; systematic designation: Mars I) is the innermost and larger of the two natural satellites of Mars,[5] the other being Deimos. Both moons were discovered in 1877 by American astronomer Asaph Hall.

Phobos is a small, irregularly shaped object with a mean radius of 11 km (7 mi)[1] and is seven times as massive as the outer moon, Deimos. Phobos is named after the Greek god Phobos, a son of Ares (Mars) and Aphrodite (Venus)«

² Triton – Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triton_(moon)

»Triton is the largest natural satellite of the planet Neptune, and the first Neptunian moon to be discovered. The discovery was made on October 10, 1846, by English astronomer William Lassell. It is the only large moon in the Solar System with a retrograde orbit, an orbit in the direction opposite to its planet’s rotation.[2][11] At 2,710 kilometres (1,680 mi)[5] in diameter, it is the seventh-largest moon in the Solar System. Because of its retrograde orbit and composition similar to Pluto’s, Triton is thought to have been a dwarf planet captured from the Kuiper belt.[12] It has a surface of mostly frozen nitrogen, a mostly water-ice crust,[13] an icy mantle and a substantial core of rock and metal. The core makes up two-thirds of its total mass. The mean density is 2.061 g/cm3,[5] reflecting a composition of approximately 15–35% water ice.

Triton is one of the few moons in the Solar System known to be geologically active (the others being Jupiter’s Io and Europa, and Saturn’s Enceladus and Titan). As a consequence, its surface is relatively young, with few obvious impact craters. Intricate cryovolcanic and tectonic terrains suggest a complex geological history. Part of its surface has geysers erupting sublimated nitrogen gas, contributing to a tenuous nitrogen atmosphere less than 1/70,000 the pressure of Earth’s atmosphere at sea level.[6] It is the second-largest planetary moon in relation to its primary, after Earth’s moon.«

And after they heart Palma’s music answer Palmina smiled.
And how is the music score?
Can I see it?
Yes, Palmina, here it is.
And the Peony Gondola transmitted the music score and it looked like that:

picture - music score of »Variation of the 'Thinking on each other Melody'«

Palmina smiled and looked at the music score.
Then she looked into Palma’s eyes and gave the music sheet a little kiss.

»Thank you my Palma…«

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 - La Pieta by Palma il Giovane (See also »Lacrimosa« by Gerald Spitzner
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.

dav

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 –
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varangian_Guard

»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…«

dav

picture 4 –  starting white pigeon

After that the white Pigeon started to fly high in the heaven and was not seen after a while.

dav

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:

And as they heard in their Vision the »The Peony Gondola Song« Palma and Palmina saw in their vision a few other Peony Gondolas flying.

And Palma felt now a tender soft kiss on his left cheek after Palmina hold his right hand in his dreaming, and Palma could feel it and was smiling full of luck.

Palma thought: »Not every artists gets such a pure and fine soul as inspiring painting-music Peony Gondola friend. I have to be thankful every day that I have my Pigeon, my Inspiration, my Lute painting Palmina.«

A lot of Peony Gondolas flew soft and slow along the heaven.

»Look, Palmina there is »Saint Clara and Saint Franciscus…the famous spiritual loving pair. Oh look their hearts are glowing for heart-to-heart love.« also in a Peony Gondola.

»Yes, Palmina, they love each other with there soul, their spirit and with their hearts…Saint Clara is Saint Francis spiritual inspiring girl-friend. And they never stopped to love each other.«

And they heard a music like that:

VIDEO: [ Kyrie of »Prager Messe«] https://youtu.be/eKNiIPyl77w

https://youtu.be/eKNiIPyl77w
Palma was playing the Viola and expressing with each note in this music piece and tender kiss and Palmina’s talented hands and arms (of course, always at an other position).

»Wow, but Saint Franciscans of Assisi, the author of the Cantico delle Creature, was not a priest…?«, Palmina asked innocently.

»Yes, to love someone, you need not to be a priest.«

»Did Doctor Martinus, who was a catholic monk did he marry a Christian-catholic nun? And did they really found a new Christian tradition? Is that the reason why the »Trident Consilium«¹ in Trient was opened…hm? I mean, he was also not a priest, this Doctor Martinus… Also not a priest like saint Francis?«


¹ Trident Consilium – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Council_of_Trent

»The Council of Trent (Latin: Concilium Tridentinum), held between 1545 and 1563 in Trent (or Trento, in northern Italy), was the 19th ecumenical council of the Catholic Church.[1] Prompted by the Protestant Reformation, it has been described as the embodiment of the Counter-Reformation.«

»The Council issued condemnations of what it defined to be heresies committed by proponents of Protestantism, and also issued key statements and clarifications of the Church’s doctrine and teachings, including scripture, the Biblical canon, sacred tradition, original sin, justification, salvation, the sacraments, the Mass and the veneration of saints.[4] The Council met for twenty-five sessions between 13 December 1545 and 4 December 1563.[5] Pope Paul III, who convoked the Council, oversaw the first eight sessions (1545–47), while the twelfth to sixteenth sessions (1551–52) were overseen by Pope Julius III and the seventeenth to twenty-fifth sessions (1562–63) by Pope Pius IV.«


* * *

– Oh, look fast, Palma: Marco Polo and his Buddhist nun, his wife, the Chinese Princess! Also together in a Peony Gondola – Spiritual Love with different traditions!«

»Yes, like you and me…«

They looked how this Peony Gondola moved along the pink-white clouds.

»It looks so harmonic and full of peace..«

»Look there is another Peony Gondola with Dante and Beatrice ! Dante writes 100 Cantici for her, how deep his love is, to dedicate her such a great Poesie! This is spiritual love!«

»And here is Liu Mengmei and Du Linang from the PEONY PAVILLION – Their love goes beyond time and space – death and life – they first met only in their secret dreams in the Peony Pavilion!«

»There is the Saint John of Cross**) and the Saint Terese from Avila***) – A deep spiritual love and friendship!«

»Yes, Palmina. They had been also in Venice. He held a speech in our Titian School and he got some painting lessons from me and she, Terese from Avila, met him in our Titian-School, sitting in the audience, and I painted her in a painting ***). And as they spoke with each other they suddenly flew a few meters above the earth, we all could see it, like to be together in a invisible Peony-Gondola¹. The Symbol of spiritual love and deep and heartfelt love and friendship«.

And they were all sitting in their Peony Gondolas, waved friendly to Palma and Palmina.
Palma and Palmina waved friendly back.
»Look, the saints of all traditions, we are dreaming in this vision,…They are greeting us!«, Palmina said like an innocent deer.

* * *

And as the music of the »Peony Gondola Song« was finished Palmina laid again her head back on Palma’s heart to hear his heart which was beating for her in deep love.

»Oh, my saint spirit inspiration. My Pigeon. My Palmina!«
»Oh, My painter, my composer and writer. My Palma il Giovane!«

And now they saw this Peony Gondola Vision:

* * *

Palma was sitting in one of his little ateliers at the »Furlani«. Right, beside is the Chiesa San Antonio and left, beside it the »scuola«

picture 04 - Palma's little atelier (Nr 3291, left beside the House Nr 3292)

picture 04 – Palma’s little atelier (Nr. 3291, left beside the House Nr. 3292)

He was painting as young Cardinal which played a big role at the Trident Concilium*) in the catholic Church, which is very mighty in this century.

»Jacopo Palma il Giovane. You are a very talented painter. You lived so long in Rome at the embassy. Your talent was discovered by Lord Rovero**). I saw a lot of famous paintings by you, Palma, here in Venice. You are really a famous artist here. I think you are one of the most well known persons here in Venice, isn’t it?

»Oh, thank you your excellency. I feel honoured by your positive words.
Yes, but I try to be silent in the public. I try to support the »La Zitelle« girls and its orchestra and musicians and teachers with my own compositions.«

»Oh with your own compositions! This is a good idea: To make a kind of music therapeutic creation for them to overcome their trauma of child-prostitution.
I founded a lot of institutions all over Europe to save these girls and to protect them from child-prostitution…Did you know? But the evil dark sugar network is fighting against this….not only in Venice I think.«
»Yes I know. We all know it here in the Republic of Venice…There are evil networks supporting the dark sugar earth social network of child Prostitution. Our Music-Projects are a way to help the children and young women…«

»You have also problems here in Venice with them. They are an evil network internationally…
Palma what should we do to save the old music-tradition in Europe? Some want to destroy church music like the dark sugar earth network is doing it. «

»I have an idea: Give orders that Pierluigi da Palestrina *****) in Rome; he should compose a new traditional saint mass with 6 voices. He should compose it for the Pope. This „Pape Macelli“*) will save our music in Europe!«

»It was believed that the simple, declamatory style of Missa Papae Marcelli convinced Cardinal Carlo Borromeo, on hearing, that polyphony could be intelligible, and that music such as Palestrina’s was all too beautiful to ban from the Church.

Cardinal Borromeo was for a long time very silent and was thinking. Palma continued to draw him for a while and as they finished today’s paintings session Cardinal Borromeo and Palma il Giovane stood up.

The Cardinal put both hands on the head of Palma il Giovane and spoke very ceremonial:

»I bless your artworks and I bless your music compositions. May you always see the way of the saint spirit in your life. May a »saint spirit pigeon« be with you for your whole life and inspire you to your great artworks.«

And he blessed Palma il Giovane and Palma saw in a Vision a pure white Pigeon and then he saw Palmina smiling to him during this Vision.

As he went out of the little atelier they went to the right side, a few steps along the »Fondamenta dei Furlani« and entered the »Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavoni« to pray there. (This is all along the Rio de la Pieta, near the Chiesa »San Antonin« and near to Palmina’s bakery)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scuola_di_San_Giorgio_degli_Schiavoni

»The Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavoni in Venice, northern Italy, was one of the city’s historical scuole (confraternity houses). «


Here at this »Suola« Palma il Giovane’s students made also some paintings.
A nun came and explained them friendly that Palma made here some beautiful paintings for these rooms, and also at the chapel in the first floor.
And Cardinale Borromeo did look interested at Palma’s artworks and all the servants where following him.
After he prayed a servant said:
»Your excellency today you will have a big speech in the big famous cathedral of Venice. Do you want to prepare your excellency for that and have a meal?«

picture 06 – Overview – »Campo Bandiera et Moro« (Palmina’s Home), Chiesa »San Antonin« (Palma’s paintings), The Atelier at the Fondamenta di Furlani and the »Scuola«

* * *

And they saw also in their Vision that Cardinale Borromeo is holding a long big speech in the San Marco Cathedral.
Hundreds of people are listening his words and they are standing also outside at the San Marco Place.
»…And we have to protect our children from child-prostitution! (applause) Especially our »La Zitelle«-Institution, here in Venice at our little Giudecca Island. It was founded by a good women and we have also to protect the members of that beautiful La Zitelle girls orchestra and choir..« (Very big and long applause) »…We have to protect them from secret attacks and intrigues by the forbidden dark sugar earth criminal network administrators. They have much money and they pay much money against the victims of child prostitution to make them silent. They plunder the rich and slave the poor, they enjoy their criminal life.« („Boo“ crying people) »And even there is only one priest, here, who supports this criminal network then tell it to me. And even If I die, I will come personally from the heaven with the saint angels to protect these girls and children from their enemy…«

And all on the cathedral applauded, some called:
»Bravi, Bravi,…save our children, save our poor girls…Save our »La Zitelle«-Institution
against these criminal administrators…Bravi, bravi.«
»Cardinale for papa! – We want you as our pope!«
»It is a pity that we don’t have him as our Cardinale in our Republic.«
»…he is a living Saint…This cardinal fights for the poor, for the ill, for the children, he is against child-prostitution, he is the savor of the church music…«
»Long live our Cardinale Borromeo!!! Let us stand with him!«
»Yes, he is the man who speaked for us in Rome.«
And there was a long applause in this huge San Marco Cathedral with its beautiful golden Mosaics.

And the Choir on the left side, up in the cathedral, where Palmina sat with her Lute with the other musicians, were ready and waited till Master Claudio Monteverdi gives the sign to start to perform the music Composition »Cum sancto spiritu – Fugue«, composed by Palma il Giovane
And Palma il Giovane was sitting in the first row of the honour guests of Venice and looked up to Palmina, up there in the music-heaven, in this San Marco Cathedral and she looked down to him, smiling, being very lucky that he composed this polyphonic music, dedicated to his saint spirit pigeon, expressing the dance of the saints and angels in the heaven. (This music can also be danced by a good ballet group)

And then they sung and played like that:

Cardinale looked up to the heaven and listened.

»What musicians and composers they have here in Venice. Like the Angels in the Heaven…this music helps our La Zitelle girls, yes, this music…«

And as they saw this Peony Vision Palma said:
»You see Palmina, we have not only enemies from the church. There are also saints! »Yes, Palma, savers of the music and protectors of the children!«

**) Guidobaldo II della Rovere, Duke of Urbino
– Wikepedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guidobaldo_II_della_Rovere,_Duke_of_Urbino

»In 1567 Guidobaldo II della Rovere, duke of Urbino, recognized Palma’s talents, supporting him for four years and sending him to Rome, where he remained until about 1572. Shedding most remnants of Roman manner after his return to Venice, Palma adopted the inescapable models and mannerisms of Tintoretto. His early biographers assert that he found a place in the ageing Titian’s workshop; when the master died, Palma stepped in to finish his last work, the Pietà in the Accademia, Venice. Palma’s first major public commission arrived after a 1577 fire in the Doge’s Palace: three scenes in its grand council hall.« – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palma_il_Giovane


158. The big deal, the honour of three women and the saved friendship

158. The big deal, the honour of three women and the saved friendship

And Palmina thought on Palma. Palma could feel it and smiled.
She touched in her thoughts Palma’s right hand and Palma could feel it.
Palma was lucky and smiled. In her thought at their Peony-hour Palmina gave Palma a little cheek kiss on his right cheek and Palma could feel it and smiled.

»My Du Liniang«, Palma said in his Peony-dream.
»My Liu Mengmei«, Palmina said to Palma in her Peony-dream.

Palma plugged on this Viola:

c – g- d‘- a‘

Palmina answered and plugged on her Lute:

A – D – E – a

Both smiled in the same moment.

Palma hugged her with his right arm. And Palmina hold Palma with her left arm.

»Now we saw two different visions…from two different moments«, Palma said.

»I remember,… that 2nd vision is nearly 11 years earlier then that first vision in 1593…«

»Oh, Palmina, my soft innocent Pigeon. I love you as you are…«
And in that moment they saw again a vision, sitting together in their soft seats of their Peony Gondola and they saw this:

* * *

Palmina was very sad that the priest did not like Palma’s artworks.
This day she went her way carefully to the Island Giudecca in Venice.

She took an other way with the Gondola so that she will not suddenly meet the priest on the streets of Giudecca.

At a little Pizzeria the restaurant owner greeted Palmina:
»Ciao, Palmina. Principessa, tutto bene? Fa bene? Are you ok?«

Palmina shows with her finger on her mouth that he should be silent in this moment.
»What’s up in Venice? Palmina, I heard that your father was seen in the city with an unknown women….«

Palmina stopped walking so fast and then she asked him:
»Porca Miseria! My father is back…!? After so much years….? Sure?«

»I did not see him but an other Pizzeria owner on San Marco Place said today he is back.«

»Hm? Mother did say nothing and at our bakery she was the whole morning alone. And was my brother also with him?«

»Mi dispiace, Io nolo so – I don’t know, Palmina…«

* * *

Palma il Giovane was now teaching in his Titian School and today was the open day for the public. The public was only on this day allowed to enter free this famous Titian-Art-School to see Palma’s famous students getting public painting lessons by him.

A lot of interested people from all over the world wanted to see how the students are getting teaching lessons by Palma il Giovane.

Palmina’s father said to a women: »Come, let us visit the Titian School. Let us see how the teaching painting lessons are. Normally no one can enter this famous Venice Palazzi…«

As they entered the big representative hall they saw Palma il Giovane teaching.

Palma said: »…And there is a beautiful legend here in Venice about a Lute player women, she was very beautiful and Titian wanted to have her playing for his painting school. And she played very beautifully. But there was a priest who did not want that. He went on one day to her father to talk with him secretly…«

As Palmina’s father heard that legend he was very nervous and the women beside him looked surprised at him.

»What is with you?«, she asked him.

* * *

In the meanwhile Palmina went slowly along the long Promenade on the little Giudecca Island in the direction to the „La Zitelle“.

There was a pure women on the house side sitting and opening her hand for something because she is poor and needy.
For a moment Palmina did not see the needy women.
Then her pure and friendly heart was stronger: She went back and gave to the needy women some of her fresh white fine breads.

Now she has something to eat.
The women was very thankful and Palmina made a little sigh and looked how lucky the women was to get such a good food, such a fine little bread, handmade and baked by Palmina’s mother.
She wanted to caress the head of the poor women and she smiled very lucky.

As she stood there Palmina heard the voice of two man from a window of the 1.floor of this house.
There are the rooms of the priests and a priest said:

»No thank you, we don’t buy any dark sugar from your institution. How often I told you: We do not make a business with the devil, your dark-sugar-earth organisation…«
»Oh no, father…today I want to tell you that a Millionaire asked me to ask you if you can make it possible that Palmina will not play Palma’s compositions in the next time, you know. Today he said you will get several millions of money if you can influence Palmina’s father to tell his daughter that he, her father, will finance her music career with his own money if she promise him that he will not play the compositions of Palma il Giovane in the next future.
And if he agrees then he also will get some millions and he can finance Palmina’s music career with that money. – Hm??«

For a moment the priest looked left, then right, if there is no one else here in this room.
»How much will I get? How much will Palmina’s father get?«
And the men from the church of the dark sugar earth social network whispered him some words.
»Ooooh, so much…I am sure this is enough money to make him agree. He will believe every lie for money. I will tell him some lies about Palma il Giovane. If a priest says that then he believes it for sure.«

* * *

»…and Master Titian was surprised that his Lute Playing Women did not come to the Titian school. But as he asked her why she should not play lute at the Titian school she answered Master Titian: „I am so sorry, but I had to promise my father not to play for you in the Titian School“ – „Why?“, Master Titian asked her. And she answered: „My father took a lot of money from a priest and he promised to take this money to pay for a big concert for me for a tour abroad, outside of Venice“, Palma explained to the painting students.

»And you can see that our big Master Titian had problems with a priest who did pay a lot of money against that connection.

And Palmina’s father started to shake nervous like he is afraid and suddenly he stood up from the seat and went straight ahead in direction of the exit of the big hall.
All the spectators looked surprised an started to whisper:

»Isn’t that the father of Palmina Albina, the best lute player of the Republic of Venice?«

»Look the baker from the Campo Bandiera e Moro is back from his Island…«

»Oh, whole Venice are talking about him…he left his wife because of an other wife from that island, isn’t it?«

»He left his wife and his daughter. He took with him his sun on that island…«
»And I heard he and his sun is member of the Church of Sec…how was the name?«
»Oh, yes, look, he has a new women with him…«
Palmina’s father was very nervous and wanted to go.
»Hm…the Chinese emperor had also several woman…«, Palmina’s father thought by himself.

He took the woman on his hand and tried to force her brutally to leave the hall.

»Let me, let me, I don’t want to be hurt by you again…Let me.. What are the others telling? You have a wife and a daughter? – What, YOU are still married with an other women – YOU LIER! – You hurt my feelings and my honour as women!!!«

And she gave him a loud slap in the face…«.

And the Venetian and Italian people are clapping with their hands:

»Bravi, bravi …amore! Give him another slap… He hurt two women’s heart and an innocent beautiful daughter…«
»Bravi.. Bravi!«
And there was a big applause in the big hall.
Palmina’s father run away.

The unknown women shouted loud behind him: »You lier!!! Porceria! Today I will find your wife and will tell her how cruel you have been to me…«
And she also went fast away and all people said »Bravi, Bravi…« and applauded.
A lot of whispering was in the hall and some said:

»Does the lute player made the concert tour with the money of that priest? And who was the talented young lady who played on Titian’s death bed in the year 1576?«

Palma smiled as he heart the question from the audience.

* * *

As Palmina realized what the priest and the man spoke, standing under the window, listening she realized also that the poor women stood up and was looking like a very, very beautiful Chinese women, with white cloths, like a saint.
She smiled and went slowly away.
Palmina looked behind her a little bit wondering.
Then she went up in the 3rd floor where she has her music teaching rooms at the la Zitelle.

After a few hours Palmina looked out of the window and saw down on the promenade her father speaking with a priest.
She listened carefully, not to be seen by them.
The priest and Palmina’s father does not know that Palmina has her three Windows to that Promenade.
Palmina shook her head and could not believe what she heard; what those both are speaking.

»Oh, no…my father takes money from the priest. Oh no, poor Palma il Giovane…
Oh, father left mother only for money. But I will stand with my lonely mother!
Oh, father payed a lot of money against Palma il Giovane’s artworks. But I will stand with Palma il Giovane!
Oh, the people are taking money to destroy the »La Zitelle« Institution and it’s girls choir and orchestra – I will stand with the poor ladies!«

* * *

And after they saw this Vision Palma said to her:

»Palmina that’s why we are here in our Peony Gondola.

We have to learn and to remember what in these years happened against our relation.

Especially around the year 1582.

It was not your father who supported your music career with his own money.
It was the money from the priest.
And the priest got the money from the members of the Criminal Security Organization, which is trying to destroy our Republic! Think on Cyprus-Island.

Your father took a lot of money from that priest who did not want that I compose for you and that you play for me on your lute.
The Peony Gondola will help us to understand what happened behind our backs.
To understand what people are doing for money.

They even lie to their own children, only to get some millions for their secret private life.
And as your father got the millions from the priest he left your mother and he left also you to go to that island, to start a new love with an other women.
Don’t forget that. Why you should not also have your own friendship with a famous artist?
He promised your mother to stay with her and what he did to her?
He started a relation with an other woman.
And the women did not know that he was married and has two children.
She thought that she is the only women loved by him.
So your father hurt the feelings of three women! The feeling of your mother, who supported his baker tradition with her family money, the feelings of the unknown other women and the feelings of you, Palmina.
You trusted him, you promised him not to play…
He is not the nice sugar-daddy that loves his daughter and is supporting her career.
You can not get his love back, what he did is not a »promise« worth.
He took the money from the priest to have a new secret life with an other women to leave your family in Venice.
He supported also the Church of Security, they maybe expected this from him, with its connections to the Dark Sugar Earth Social Network Administrators. They are erasing the letters of other people, they read the letters of other people, and they are selling the letters to those who pay for it. They sell dark sugar to little children so they also sell the children for men who want to be alone with them in a room.

It was our luck that some one from the Dogan’s Palace found out these crimes against children. There are world-wide protests against these Criminal Administrators of the Dark Sugar Earth Social Network. The Europeans founded in these days new commissions to avoid these crimes against privacy and to bring them now into prison. Today they arrested a few of them. The founder will have a big hearing in the public and all the people will hear what the crimes of this so called »Security Organization« are – Whole Venice is expecting the big trial against this criminal organization and all are expecting results against these crimes.

And it was also our luck that some one from the government of the Republic of Venice tried to repair our friendship with protecting the honour of the »La Zitelle« – Institution.
And it was our luck that they make it possible that you, Palmina, could see me officially daily at the Jesuits at the »Ospedaletto« where I painted during 10 years. These concerts were not supported by your father, but by the Republic of Venice. Your career was not at an end, it continued now in little fine concerts, playing for poor women, teaching poor children, and playing the openings of my painting presentations in famous churches of Venice, famous palazzi and also outside of Venice, which is a big honor. And only the best music artists can play for these events for the Republic of Venice. I arranged it also that your mother’s bakery gets more interest by the pilgrims for San SABA at Chiesa San Antonin. With my paintings of the life of San SABA the miracle was »Miracolo del fornaio«², the bakers-miracle…« was documented and the pilgrims had to come to this church and to eat the breads of your mother’s bakery.
So your family is financial independent from your father.«
Palmina cried a little bit because of the big shame of her father.

VIDEO: [ Violin and Organ and AGNUS DEI ] https://youtu.be/jN7tpvVgMS0
https://youtu.be/jN7tpvVgMS0

Her heart now understood that her father was not fair to her mother and to Palma and to the unknown other women. And now she understood that not her father supported her music career; it was only money against the relation of Palma il Giovane and Palmina Albina. And this was also not fair. How often he was violent to her and she was afraid from her father. With brutal violence he tried to force her to do after his will. What father did endangered Palmina’s place in the music history. But the miracle of the Peony Gondola saved all.
Now her heart understood that this was not correct.

He caress her head and hold her like a big brother, like a father, like a husband, like a good, old friend and a deeply loving soul.

»Oh, Palma you saved my music career and my honour! The big money deal between father, who was so violent and brutal to me, and the Organised Security, the „Security Organisation“ could have destroy our music-painting friendship and my position in the Republic of Venice. Thank you Palma, thank you Palma, you are a hero, you are my hero!«

And she gave him a tender cheek kiss and laid her head on Palma’s side.
And she heard how strong Palma’s heart is beating, beating for her.

This was a soft music: Yes, Palma is forgiving her, she is not responsible for her father. She was innocent and not knowing about the million money deal. Palmina, his big love, did not know that she was promising her father not to play a composition from Palma if he is supporting her music career with the money from a dangerous priest, a priest who gave him money for an other 2nd unknown women, to leave Palmina’s mother.

Yes, Palma is a very, very good music-painting friend. In good times and »in evil times…«

Now all misunderstandings had been cleared by the Peony Gondola.
(But our story is not finished; it is only an important moment of our story)
Now they can go their tender Peony-Gondola-Way, together.
Together, from Heart to heart, blessed by the heaven.

And both smiled and hugged, sitting in their soft seats of their Peony Gondola at 23 o’clock at 11 p.m.

Palma touched with his nose her nose and both smiled.
Palmina touched with her sweet nose Palma’s nose and they smiled.

And as they made this several times they looked like two Pigeons which love themselves with their heart, like pigeons who tender bill and coo.

And they heard the music »Peony Gondola Song« like this:

And after all these visions they suddenly saw this vision:

* * *

 

And Palmina remembered how often she brought Palma fresh bread as he was painting.
Yes, she also remembered at the time at the Church Chiesa San Zulian as Palma il Giovane worked at the huge painting »Trionfo di San Juliano«, on which he painted 8 years till the year 1588 and also the mystic paintings of the life of Saint SABA in the Church Chiesa San Antonin, which is directly near at the big place »Bandiera e Moro« where Palmina’s mother has her famous bakers shop.
Palma painted there during the whole year 1593 and finished all the big paintings.

How often Palmina came with her Lute and her little basked, full of fine, fresh, little breads to bring him food, to help Palma to make a short break. How often she played on her Lute to help during his working break.
Every day she could see him and nobody could criticize this beautiful friendship, which was of course more then only a friendship, a deep, tender, spiritual love.

* * *

As Palmina remembered that moments she said with a sigh to Palma:

»Oh, my Palma, my music-painting friend. How often I was standing down here on earth…How often I saw you painting, up there, in the heaven, painting the saints the saint Virgin, the saint spirit pigeon, the clouds, the orange-yellow-golden heaven-light. How often I wished to be up with you, to play for you my Lute…
…and if I have to go thousands of steps, up in your direction, only to be with you, to give you my smiling…I would never stop to go this way…«

Palma hugged her , smiled, and he gave her a good hold and they continued to look at their Peony-Gondola Visions, sitting together in their Peony-Gondola at 23 o clock (11 p.m.):
* * *
They saw Palmina in a vision looking slowly up to Palma who was working at the huge scaffolding and it was like that vision:

VIDEO: [30 seconds of a huge scaffolding in a very famous church ] https://youtu.be/33Gtx1mINZo

Then they saw this vision:

* * *

»Palmina, did you see Palma today?«
»No, I was always at Giudecca-Island at the La Zitelle…«.
»But you are late today…What was there…Did you have more music teaching lessons as usually or is there a new concert…?«
»No, there is this composing priest…«
»A composing priest? A composer…Hm…?«
Palmina’s mum did some work at her bakers shop and Palmina was holding her Venetian Lute and played some accords.
»…and what did he want from you…?«
»Nothing, hm…, I mean he wanted that I play his compositions…«
»…a rehearsal for a La Zitelle concert?«
»No, Mum, he wants that I play with him, private in his priest-room alone with him.
He composed a piece for Flute and Lute – Nothing for a concert, I think –
But he said he is the best composer of our Giudecca-Island…«
»And he wants only to play music together with you, alone in his priest-room and nothing else…«
Palmina’s mother was surprised and her eyes were very, very scared.
»Oh, Palmina should marry Palma fast, so that the priests understand that she is not free…«, she thought by herself.
»I thought I talk about Palma’s new compositions – The 8 Soli you know…«
»And how he did react?«, Palmina’s mother asked very interested as she worked in the bakers shop.
»I never saw him looking so dark in his eyes… He cannot understand that I like Palma’s compositions. He said that HE is the best composer of our little Giudecca-Island. And I should not play Palma’s compositions…he is not from our island.«
»What? This he said to you? I think he wants not only to compose for you, he wants to have you in his near and he does not want that an other composer is writing for you, hm…?«
Palmina stopped to play her soft Lute playing and jumped down from the table.
»And mum… He also said that the musicians of the Giudecca-Island are much better than in the Venice City. He said also:
„We are here on our little Island better. We have no child-prostitution, WE here at the La Zitelle, we saved a lot of beautiful girls from being forced to be a child-prostitute by some suspect members of the government. WE have the better composers for Pipa-Lute. WE have a higher moral value. WE are different from the Rest of the Republic of Venice. Our Island is better. We will have no criminal rate – no prostitution for higher politicians. So Palma does not live here on Giudecca-Island – he is from Venice City…“

And, Mum I answered him:
„Mi, Signore, because I performed your compositions for Flute and Pipa it does not mean that I am not allowed to perform Palma’s compositions.
Giudecca-Island and the City of Venice…We are all the same culture, the same Republic, we speak the same language – Italian and Venetian.
Signore Jacopo Palma il Giovane is not responsible for the criminal rate in the government of our Republic. If you can make our Republic less criminal then do it and do not try to force me to play only YOUR compositions. Palma and his good contacts to our Republic made it possible that this Institution »La Zitelle« is supported…“«, Palmina told her mother.
»And how did he react…?«
»Oh, mum….I think he is suffering as priest not to have a secret girl-friend…«
»Why?«
»Because he said: „Be careful Palmina, Palma is loving you, he wants only one think: He wants to marry you…And if you are his wife you can take care of his children and cook and clean the flat and you will not be able to play on your lute and to give concerts all over the world, maybe also at far cultures like Asia and China…wouldn’t that be more interesting to have an international career as musician as to play and to inspire this painter Palma il Giovane…?“«
»And what did you say…«
»I told him that if I have decided for a China-concert-Tour then I will also not have time to play his compositions…«
»Oh, Palmina…this was the best answer ever…I love you… you are really my daughter, I feel it and you have a good heart and you are clever…This is what Palma also loves on you…«
And she hugged Palmina and gave her a little kiss on her head and both smiled.

* * *

As they saw this Vision in their Peony-Gondola Palma was proud of his deep-heart-music-girl-fiend and hold her with his arm, sitting with-her in the Peony Gondola, flying soft and over the landscape of Planet Mars getting the beautiful yellow-orange light on their smiling face.

154. Music and Painting – Friendship (3 Peony Roses)

And they continued to dream and they saw this in their Peony Gondola Vision at 11 p.m.:

* * *

During this music they heard together these »3 Peony Roses«, the Peony Gondola flew soft and slowly over the Landscape of Planet Mars.

»Look an interesting light reflection in this crater…Interesting to Paint, hm, Palma…?«

Crater on Mars

picture – Crater on Mars

As they flew again over the »Sciaparelli Crater« they saw this huge gigantic landscape like huge mountains, but it was the border of the Crater.

Later Palmina said: »You composed such beautiful Music Roses for me Palma. I love you…«, Palmina said very thankfully and full of love and was strongly smiling.
Palma smiled also.
In this moment they saw 3 orange suns over the horizon on Planet Mars *)

»Oh, Look, Palma… They have here tree suns. So yellow-Orange coloured…«

Palma looked surprised.

And now they both heard a voice speaking like that:

»Palma and Palmina!
You are the first who are kissing here on Mars in historic time…
We can see that you think on each other every day and that’s why you got the Peony Gondola…«

Palmina and Palma looked at each other wondering, but they are not afraid.

»… The mystic Peony Gondola should help you to overcome all what is against your friendship, your love, your common love for music, painting, arts and spiritually growing…

Palmina we ask you:

Palmina Albina, a Baker’s daughter in the Republic of Venice, the last secretly known East-Byzantium-Princess and the best Lute player of the Republic of Venice:

Do you want to inspire Palma il Giovane for the rest of his life?
Do you want to play his compositions?
Do you want to compose little compositions to inspire him daily?
Do you want to play your Lutes to inspire him, to give him love, to give him hope, to inspire him for new images, paintings, compositions, writing stories?
Palmina Albina, will you inspire him to paint
the golden-orange heaven in his paintings,
the saint spirit pigeons,
the light-beam from the heaven,
the saint virgin,
the life of the saints…?
Do you want to help him to see the beauty of the spiritually word…?

Do you really want to do this deeply from your heart?

In good times and evil times…?

Even if someone has something against this friendship and connection?
Even if criminal organisations try to destroy your music and painting friendship and love?
Even if Palma has maybe crisis, as it is usual for artists, like painters, composers, writers or explorers…?
So you want to compose for him endless variations, even if some of your artwork will not be named in the history and are maybe „Anonymous“.

Do you want to support him to paint the St.Lucy in a orange-coloured heaven?

Do you like to be with him, even he run with simple painting-cloth trough the streets of Venice, so that some think he is a „Nobody“?

Do your really want to support him deeply from your heart…?

…then answer clear and loud „YES, I WILL“«

Palmina smiled and said without hesitating fast and clear: »YES, I WILL!«

Palma looked now also to the three yellow-orange suns of the horizon and smiled.

A lot of mystic little blue flames came slowly to them and surrounded the Peony Gondola like in a secret ceremony.

»and Palma, we ask you:

Jacopo Palma il Giovane, Negretti, famous Master Scholar of the famous Painter Titian, the last secretly known West-Byzantium Prince.

We also proofed your heart like we proofed Palmina’s heart.

Do you want to be inspired for arts like painting, composing, writing by Palmina, the best Lute Player ever?

Do you want to be inspired be her innocent smile and lute playing and her secret compositions for new paintings with the golden orange heaven, saint virgins, saint angels, saint spirit pigeons.. by Palmina the Rest of your live?

Do you want to compose for her, even if your composition will be performed as „Anonymous“.
Do you want to compose for her even if others want to destroy your music friendship with Palmina Albina?

Do you want to be inspired from her lute playing even if criminal organisations, who hurt little children, who sell them to rich people, wants to erase your letters and you can therefore not communicate with her in written form.
Even if this will last for months or years…?
Do you want to compose, paint and write for her in Good Days and Evil Days?

If you want to do that then answer clearly and loud: „YES, I will!“

Palma looked to her side, smiling in Palmina’s smiling shining eyes and said loud and clear:

»YES, I WILL !!!«

The voice continued:

»So from that moment you are official Music-Painting Friends«

Palma and Palmina smiled and they are holding their music instruments, he: the Viola and the painting colour palette and she: the Pipa Lute.

»Now you can…

…compose and paint for your Proud – Music-and-Painting-Girl-Friend«

And they took their music instruments and started to play together
and they heard a huge applause here on Mars and
they played the new composition „Three Peony Roses“ **) like that:

And in their Peony Gondola Vision they saw this:

                * * *

„…Thank you for your love-fully thoughts“

   „It is ok…
Palma?“

  „Yes?“

„Yesterday, I did not write any letter to you…It is too dangerous in the moment to write a letter. But our Peony Gondola is really good transmitting heart-to-heart messages. Let us communicate that way…“

 “ Oh, but you touched my heart with your smile.. I could feel it… and it was so positive…a pink-peony-flower light energy…and I had a nice vision: You played Pipa with your Platin Angel winged cloth in our Peony Gondola together with me, I played Violin.“

„You also had this vision yesterday, Palma?
This Vision made me remembering to our day…yes, and I smiled and you felt this. This is our Peony Gondola!
Palma?“

  “ Hm?“

„Yesterday I did really think on you…
I thought about our first day of our friendship years ago.
I remembered our first moments in our Peony Gondola playing the Pipa for you, our deep secret.
Yesterday it was the day as I said YES to our friendship, you know.“

  „Oh, yes! Yesterday was the day you said YES to our friendship. I don’t forget this day, Palmina.
Palmina?“

Hm?

  Yesterday I composed a new composition called „Three Peony Roses“. Your smiling inspired me strongly , my dear Peony Music Rose.

Wooooo, Palma, I love Peony Roses!

  …and,… Palmina. Here is the music score….

The first Rose describes our first moments as I saw you playing for me painting presentation.

The second Peony Rose describes our first heart- to-heart dialogue after the concert.
This was like I felt your thoughts in peony pink light visions deep in my heart.“

Palmina looked at the music score and laid her head on Palma’s shoulder.

Palma smiled and continued:
„..The third rose describes our Music Dialogue…“

„Oh, fine, Palma, I am so looking forward to hear these 3 Peony Music Roses.“

   „Ok, the Peony Gondola will transmit you my music again today at 23 o clock (11 p.m.)

   Palmina…“

„Palma…
Pi-…“

   „-Pa..“

And they slowly moved their heads to their lips, tender and both said whispering:

          „Liu – to – kiss!“

And they kissed flying slowly and soft over Mars in their Peony Gondola.

„Palmina, we are the first who kiss each other on Mars“

„Yes, my Palma, my Music flowers painter..“

And they hugged deeply and the Peony Gondola transmitted this music:
