And they continued to dream their Peony Gondola dream at 23 o’clock and they saw this:

* * *

»+++ BREAKING NEWS – BREAKING WORLDPRESS NEWS +++

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

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

Palma took the newspaper and read:

A BIG BRIDGE WILL BE BUILD

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

* * *

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And now they made the rehearsal like that:

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

And they continued to dream their Peony Gondola dream:

* * *

The Gondola moved now slowly along the big Canale Grande.
After a while of silence and looking alongside the beautiful houses.
Palmina and Palma looked at each other.
Palmina played wonderfully for him, although it was a rehearsal for the concert at the Ospedaletto where Crezia is with her broken shoulder.

After her little concert in the Gondola Palma showed her his new music score the music score of „Le Reve – Dreaming Expressions“ for Piano and Violin.

And Palmina smiled and hugged him long and gave him a tender kiss.

Later at the evening concert Palmina played wonderfully and Crezia had tears of joy in her eyes. She felt no pain and the wounds of her broken shoulder seemed to heal faster than expected.

Palmina is not only a good soloist, a good music teacher, she can heal also old wounds.

It was a nice concert and Palma was so lucky to see her playing her music instrument for her.

Palma smiled – Palmina smiled.

168. Variation of the ‚Thinking on each other Melody‘

 ·168. Variation of the ‚Thinking on each other Melody‘
 

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…«

                  (to be composed.....continued....)

167. Palmina’s secret composition for Palma

_ »Venice, 15..
(Love-Letter 167)

   Dear Palmina!

My heart feels lucky to think on you.
Especially now, my heart could feel and hear a little melody you composed for me.
I could feel that you send a beautiful music-message to my heart.
You are so touching deeply my heart if you play something for me. Especially your fine compositions.
I love you. I feel it, you are coming from a higher dimension to take care for my music development in my heart.
I thank you so much, my dear Pigeon,
my Saint Cecilia, my little inspiring yellow canary bird.

This inspires me to compose as little music answer to your composition –
a little variation of our »Thinking on each other – Melody«.

Our love is strong and it goes beyond all borders and problems! 🙂
There are enemies against our relation and love but love is always stronger.
Yes, we can exchange our love and music ideas here in our Peony Gondola at 11 p.m.

I am so looking forward to see you there.

I send you from my heart this music-Variation directly to your heart.
But listen good and find the melody. It is a little bit hidden. Tell me if you could find the hidden melody.

With much love

Your you loving
your deep love, your painter,
your composer

      Your Palma il Giovane,«

             * * * 

And Palmina and Palma continued to see this Peony-vision and both smiled.

Palmina hold his right hand. Yes, this could Palma feel and he smiled and was very thankful about her heartfelt thoughts.

»Palma?«

»Hm?«

»Yes, today I played an own composition for you from heart-to-heart.
Later I send you also a short message but I saw that the brother of a music colleague of our little orchestra, which father is member of the dark sugar network, did steal her letter and showed it to her father. Her father observed this poor innocent daughter through his false brother since about two years. And…he also opened YOUR LETTER box and he steal also MY letter to you, I mean your letter…he did steal YOUR letter, because you are the normal owner of my letter if it is in YOUR letter box…so this guy has stolen our letter from YOU AND ME.«

Palmina kissed Palma on his right cheek soft and tender, Palma smiled.

»Yes, Palmina! Today I could feel your positive thoughts in my heart and suddenly I composed a variation about the »Thinking on each other melody«, Palma whispered to her in her ear.

»Oh fine! Can I listen to it?…But first I play my composition for you!!!

picture – manuscript

And Palmina started to play her beautiful composition.
Palma looked at her face and he felt all her love energy.
She played although her right middle finger painted a little bit.
But her love for Palma was stronger than her pain, she really cares for him, she really loves him.

Again she looked so beautiful playing her composition for him.

Palma smiled and such moments were Palma’s most beautifull moments in his live:
That Saint Cecilia is playing for him and to hear her playing only for him.

»Thank you my angel,
thank you my pigeon,
my little yellow canary bird,
Thank you my Pipa-Princess Wang Chun Chao
Thank you my Saint Cecilia.«,
Palma said and hugged her with his heart long and deeply.

Now I show you the copy of my letter which had been stolen and erased by the brother of my music colleague from my little orchestra«.

Palma hugged her and gave her a tender cheek kiss – a tender kiss to his white Pigeon.

And Palmina read her love letter to Palma:

»Venice, 15..

Dear Palma!

My deep and only love. Today I write you a short message. I hope that this letter will not be again stolen by the members of the dark sugar earth social network.
I decided to protect your creativity with my loving heart.

Today I played my composition as music answer for you.

I am so proud that you are composing the Cantico delle Creature.
It will be a big manifest for the divine light and against the darkness of the evil child-prostitution-networks worldwide.
Everywhere were evil people try to pay a lot of money to avoid a music performance of your Cantico delle Creature there are maybe criminal persons who are in connection with the children-sellers network like the Church of Security and its dark sugar earth connections.

I love your Cantico delle Creature and thank you that you dedicated so much Lute soli for my instrument to play in this artwork and I am really proud of you.
I came into your life as I was send to help you in your difficult life – in good times and in evil times.
Day by day I feel the music-mission together with you.
Even we can not often see us, speak us, write us and be together in the Gondola in Venice we have our Peony Gondola at 23 o’clock, a present of the heaven, to stay in deep contact over big physical distances and big cultural distances – But are they big?
Yesterday I thought on you at 11 p.m. Did you feel it also?
Let’s talk about our music-ideas in the next meeting in our Peony-Gondola.

With much love

your Pigeon,
your yellow canary bird,
your Inspiration,
your personal Saint Cecilia,
Your Y…
       …ou loving Palmina«

            * * *

And Palma’s heart was so warm surrounded by her tender words.
Palma could not say any word but Palmina felt how he reacted in his heart.

And the Peony Gondola transmitted the music Palma composed about the »Thinking on each other Melody« and it was like that:

    VIDEO: [2018-11-26 Violin+Viola »Variation about the 'Thinking on each other' Melody« ] https://youtu.be/MMUqE1UclDQ

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)

picture 05 - »Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavoni« where Palma' students painted under his teaching

Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavoni – Wikipedia
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.

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:

( of course to be continued…)

¹ the word »father« is also used if you mean a priest. In the Western tradition a Christian monk or priest is often called »father« not because he is a father of a child, because he is thought to be a spiritual father.

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

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:

153. Three Peony Roses

153. Three Peony Roses

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:

146. The Peony Rose Music Dialogue

146. The Peony Rose Music Dialogue

And they saw in their Peony vision:

 

Emperor Rudolf II said to Ludevit:
»Oh, I think Jacopo Palma il Giovane will understand that you want to paint landscapes on far places, like Moon, Mars, Saturn. I think he is the right man.
It is told that he helped once El Greco to keep ongoing to paint in his own painting style as he learned at Master Titian in Venice. Palma helped him and said to him that he is on the right way…«.

Ludevit was a little bit shy. He has so much respect of Palma il Giovane, he is so well known in whole Europe and also in Asia and China.
Even his music is loved by the people there.

Emperor Rudolf II continued speaking slow an wise: »He will sure teach you in painting these ideas. Why not, he is a very tolerant Master…He is well educated…He knows a lot of old traditions, cultures and religions.He spoke with Chinese, Asian, Buddhist, Taoist, Lutheran, Christians, Muslims, Jewish…I think as Venetian Citizen he will also understand that you love to learn painting planets and planets-landscapes…Ludevit, try it.. I send you to him.«.
Ludevit made a respectful gesture and went slowly backwards to show his respect to the Emperor Rudolf II who is collecting arts from all over Europe and the whole world.
»Ah, Ludevit…«.
Ludevit stopped moving.

»Ludevit… I want some paintings from Master Palma il Giovane…and,and I want later to come to Venice to see and to hear the performance of the «Peony Gondola Song» in the San Marco Cathedral to hear our famous Choir from Podebrad.«

Ludevit smiled, nodded and went slowly respectfully backwards.

* * *

As Palmina saw this Peony Vision she said full of joy:

»Oh my Palma. My composer… Isn’t it amazing… They will come to play your compositions – Our Love Song in Venice!!! Oh Palma….«
»Oh Palmina. I want to hold you in my arms and kiss your cheeks and your talented hands!«

»Oh Palmina, I want to make with you a music Dialogue. You and me.
I play some notes on my Viola and you play some answer on your Lute…«
»Oh this would be fine…and the Peony Gondola will transmit our tones so we can hear each other. A music from heart – to heart«

Palma kissed her cheek and she kissed also his cheek and they saw a Vision on a Peony Rose and they heard a music dialogue like that:

VIDEO: [2018-10-14 »Peony Rose Music Dialogue«] https://youtu.be/WG3Frq_72lo

(to be continued…)


 

137. »Looking to the Moon in Venice«

137. »Looking to the Moon in Venice«

After Palma thanked Palmina for supporting him mentally with playing for him on her Lute in such a difficult time (Intrigues by the Church of Security against his family) they saw this in their Peony Vision:

* * *

Early at the morning there was at the West horizon the Full moon visible. Today Palma waked up exactly at the moment of full moon at 5 o‘ clock.

»How beautiful the moon is today, it is full moon and the sun will rise in a few moments…«

Palma looked out of his window. Two Pigeons flew in the west direction to the San Marco Cathedral from left to right.
He looked up to the right building where Mihaela and Adriana have their room in the 2nd and 3rd floor. there was no light, they are sleeping.

»Palmina is sure also sleeping now in her lonely bed, holding her Pipa or Venetian Lute, maybe rehearseling during she sleeps…«, Palma thought.

Down at the street »Campo San Provolo« he saw Princess Lin with a few Chinese bodyguards carrying some Moon-Cake.

»Oh, princess Lin, good morning, Chao An…Quin Wen, From where did you get these moon cakes?..«

»Oh, good morning Signore Palma il Giovane… Yes, these are moon cakes…after the Asian traditional moon festival, we eat now at the full moon night these cakes, with drinking Chinese Tea during we try to see the moon princess on her castle on the moon…The cakes you can buy nearby the bakery of Palmina…«

»Oh, how romantic…I will buy such moon cakes…I forgot about the Asian moon festival…Zhong qiu jie kuai le!«, Palma said down to Princess Lin with her Bodyguards.

»Xie,xie. Zhong qiu jie kuai le!!!!«, Princess Lin answered. This means »Happy Mid-Autumn Moon feast!«

* * *

Then Palma went to the Bakery shop and bought some fresh breads.

As he left the shop the »La Zitelle Girl«, which is new now at the bakery shop, said also »Ts, ts, ts… Signore Palma il Giovane is only dreaming off his Palmina, the best lute player of the Republic of Venice…ts, ts, ts…«

Now he went to the new Chinese Shop nearby to buy some fresh Lotus-Moon-Cakes to surprise Palmina today evening at 11 p.m..

»Ni hao…Da Jia hao… I want to buy some fresh Lotus-Moon-Cakes…«

»Oh, ni hao, Signore Palma il Giovane. We know you, you painted our family members so beautifully…And you composed music for Pipa Lute. This we remember very good…Welcome to our new Asia-Shop… Here we have some Lotus-Moon-Cakes… and they are vegan..we know you eat vegan like our buddhist monks in China…«, the friendly women and her elder husband said smiling and with much respect.

Palma took a whole box and packed it as present for Palmina.

* * *

The day went his way as usual. Palma painted in the church. Palmina did rehearsal and teach at the »La Zitelle« with the La Zitelle Girls to give them the best music and art education.

Later there was a little Organ presentation at the San Marco Cathedral. A teacher of the La Zitelle showed the visitors of the cathedral the organ and played a composition.
Palma remembered that he often played on that organ here and this inspired often Claudio Monteverdi which was 11 year old as Master Titian died.

This Organ presentation will be transmitted by the Peony Gondola so Palmina can also see this Organ from her island.

Palma often transmitted music to Palmina with the Peony Gondola and Palmina could also see the image as vision, as if she were there.

* * *

Now it was Evening in Venice and the full moon is rising over the south east horizon at Venice lagoons waters.

As the Peony hour came Palma entered the inside-golden-light-shining Gondola.

And the Gondola flew over the houses of Venice directly from the window of the »Campo S.Provolo« to the Giudecca Island at the »La Zitelle«.

The two windows at the 3rd floor, of the right part of the building, had light.
It was Palmina’s candle light and she was doing rehearsal of a composition by Palma, he composed for her as love-letter. All his artworks are love-declarations from Palma for Palmina…

Slowly the Peony Gondola set on the waters and stopped under Palmina’s windows.

Palma took his Mandolin and played some short musics for her to show Palmina that he is ready for a Peony-Gondola trip at the 23 hour (11 p.m.).
Today Palma was dressed very well in the tradition of the 16th Century.

Palmina stopped playing, looked through her window down to the waiting Gondola, Palma waved up to her and smiled.
Palmina waved, took her Lutes and some music scores and run fast the steps down to his Palma il Giovane.
How happy she smiled, how she was looking forward to make some music with him in the gondola, to get some new compositions for her instruments….

The floor was enlighted by the inner-golden-yellow light of the Peony Gondola so that Palmina could see her way, step by step from darkness to the light, the shining Peony Gondola.

»Per favore, Signora Palmina…«, Palma said and made a respectful gesture to invite her in the Peony Gondola.
Palmina smiled and thanked, she was dressed yellow white like in the painting of Gentileschi Orazio (see previous chapter)and entered slowly the Gondola.

As she sat in the soft seats beside Palmina the Gondola started slowly to move and to drive in the direction of the San Marco Cathedral. Slowly the Gondola started to fly over the waters, over the Canale Grande. The Gondola flew over the San Marco Place and made a little circle at the palace. The 6000 Pigeons sitting and flying around the San Marco Place did know what is happening here. They were not surprised. Some pigeons flew behind the Gondola and followed them.

Palmina smiled and took Palmas hand and smiled into his eyes.
Palma smiled also to Palmina.

The flight of the Gondola is expressing the feeling both have in their heart now.

Now the Gondola flew between the two columns, the left one has on its top the San Marco lion which is a symbol of the Republic of Venice and then the Gondola turned left.

The Gondola flew beside the Island Giorgio Mazor, »Giorgio Maggiore«.

It was a fantastic flight over the Lagoon water. They saw the stars, the rising Moon over the Isola (Island) Lido.
Palma and Palmina felt now a soft wind at their face moving their hairs in the wind. Especially Palmina’s beautifully hairs looked so beautiful moving in the Peony Gondola.
Palmina kissed Palma on his cheek. This was like the first kiss Palmina gave him as she was a baby and he was only 12 years old. Yes, this kiss happened at the Titian Art-School lesson before the big painting of Master Titian »Transfiguratione«.

The flying Gondola set tender on the water and stopped slowly at the »Giardino« of Venice where the beautiful gardens of Venice are at the south end of the city.

The Gondola stopped at the place where Palma and Palmina often sat at night to see the rising stars in the south-east on a bank behind the stone statue.
Palma stood up and helped his Peony-music-princess to come secure out of the Gondola without getting water on her beautiful yellow cloth.
The light of the gondola switched slowly a little bit less bright so they could see better the stars and the rising full moon.
As Palma an Palmina sat down at the bank Palma said »Palmina, today it is the Mid-Atumn-Moon-Fest…«

»Oh, yes, I know…I learned the tradition at the concert in the Chinese-European Island…The tradition in Asia and China says that if people are sitting together and eating moon cakes they can see the moon princess in her castle on the moon…«

Palma took his surprise.
»Here is a little surprise for you, Palmina…Open it…«
And Palmina smiled about Palmas present and she opened the present.
»Oh a traditional moon cake!! I love Lotus Moon Cakes !!!! Palma.. I love you..«
And Palmina gave Palma a tender cheek kiss and she kissed him all over his face.
Palma was lucky about her tenderness and especially that she is so happy about the moon cakes.
»Let us eat them now after the tradition…And let us look up to moon…«
»Yes let us look if we can see the Chinese Moon Princess…«
And they ate the moon cake and Palma had some new music inspirations in his heart.
Suddenly the light of the Peony Gondola in the water was brighter and there came a music which is the music Palma had in his heart.
Palma and Palmina entered the Gondola and the Gondola flew slowly to the moon.
»Look there is the Chinese Princess, let us see how the castle is there on the moon.«
Palma and Palmina looked up to the moon holding their hands tender.
They both felt in their heart a warm and tender feeling during the beautiful Atumn-Full-Moon over Venice sitting at the »Giardino« of Venice surrounded by the evening stars over the lagoon waters of Venice.

And the Peony Gondola flew and they saw the Moon-Princess with traditional Chinese cloth and they saw the castle and the stars during the music.

And they heard Palma’s Composition for 2 Instruments and it was like this:
