Palma was long very silent.

Palmina, sitting beside him in the Peony Gondola at 23 h (11 p.m.), she realized that and she thought on the beautiful high inspiring moments they had together…
»You are so silent in the last time, Palma…?«
»Oh, my beloved Palmina, my inspiration…
You are inspiring me so much, also now.
I am thinking always about you and me.
Signore Ridolfi is now coming in a few days to Venice.
He has interest to write a book about my live as artist or a longer biography about my live.
And he will listen to my speech in a few days in Venice.
I will tell also about the beautiful time as you played your Lute in the year 1574-1576….«
Palmina put her head on Palmas shoulder and then she kissed soft his cheek.
»Oh, Palma…You will really do that?
You will tell about me playing at Master Titian during he was painting at the very famous artwork ‚Pieta’…?«
»Yes, my Pigeon, my Inspiration, my deep love…
Do you want again to play your Lutes during my speech in Venice…?«
»Oh yes, Palma! I am so looking forward to play for your speech in Venice…«
Palmina’s cheeks went a little bit red being shy.
And Signore Ridolfi*) can not write all I will write it so that even the people in 300 or 400 years will hear about you, my inspiring Lute playing Angel…«


*) Carlo Ridolfi – Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlo_Ridolfi
Carlo Ridolfi (1594–1658) was an Italian art biographer and painter of the Baroque period.

Ridolfi is Palma’s Biographer who printed the first biography of his live in the 17 century
»Le maraviglie dell’Arte ovvero, Le vite degli Illustri Pittori Veneti e dello Stato.«


And Palma put his strong arm around Palmina and he gave her a good hold and kissed also her cheek.
Palmina smiled and Palma smiled.

And now they continued to see their Peony dream and Vision and it was like that:

* * *

After Palma gave a copy of the music score to the moon princes all the beautiful moon princesses beside her looked and whispered.
»We want also to have some copies of Palma’s music score – we love his music…«
A little moon princes with a 2 year old girl-baby came and pointed to Palma il Giovane.
»Oh, look, she likes you, Palma«, Palmina said.
And as the little moon princess with her baby came near to Palma with his Mandolin the princess said:
»Dear Palma il Giovane, we heard you Organ playing here from the moon…
Can you play on our moon-palace-organ some music for us all?
This is was my little baby daughter princess wanted you to ask…«
Palma made a very respectful Venetian gesture in front of the little princess mother and her baby.
»Yes, It is a big honour to play for you on your organ here on the moon…«
And Palma went to the Organ which has not been played long time.
The moon princess whispered and said: »Ooooooh! An Organ Concert for us!«
»Palma looked into Palmina’s eyes.
»I am proud of you, Palma«, Palmina said smiling and sending him Inspirations from her heart to his heart and it felt so warm in his heart to get her deep love every evening at 23 h ( 11 p.m.)

And Palma sat down at the Organ and played some Inspirations like that:

Under the stars over Venice reflecting their bright light in the waters of the lagoon, Palma stood with his Mandolin looking from the promenade at this evening.

As he played his composition for his Palmina Palma felt that he was not alone.
He could feel that Palmina played music »together with him« his composition. He saw her smile shining into his lonely heart. There, deep in his heart, he felt a warm light.
»The light of Palmina« – Yes she is with him in this Peony hour, she send him a tender kiss on his cheeks and he could feel her.

Palmina looked again along the horizon of the sea and the air has now a completely other smell. She smiled looking to the stars, thinking on her Giacomo Palma il Giovane. Still she is holding her Pipa-Lute sitting on the big Royal Chinese Ship. The ships from China are very big because the sea is much dangerous then the Adriatic Sea here in Europe.
Palmina felt very secure on that big Chinese Chip.
But she smiled seeing Palma with her heart. And Palma smiled seeing Palmina with his heart now at 11 p.m. (23 h).

Venice was quite, and the people and musicians on the ship from Venice are now sleeping.
Only a Pigeon sat on the wood of the ship -a Byzantine Pigeon made soft with a high voice: „Groo, Grooooo, Grooooooo“
Palmina looked at her and smiled.

* * *

As Palma and Palmina saw this tender dreaming-Vision in their Peony Gondola Palma kissed Palmina softly.

»What a remembering…«

»What a unique China-Concert-Tour…«

»Palmina?…«
»YES, my Master…«
»Palmina, did I tell you what happened in Venice as you were on concert Tour…?«

Palmina looked surprised: »No, tell me…«

And they saw this in their Peony Vision:

* * *

On one of these lonely evenings, Palma went along the promenade after he ate an Italian Pizza at the »Campo Bandiera e Moro«, and went directly to the Dogans’s Palace.
Palma was invited to listen an official concert.
Palma was not sure what today will be played without Palmina.

As the concert started there came a lady with a Lute in a golden metallic cloth.

»Hmmm?….«
All the people of Venice were wondering.
»Palmina is not playing this concert?….«, some people ask.

There was a while of whispering in the hall.
The conductor had problems to start the concert, because of the noise of the whispering and wondering and asking audience.
»Palmina is the best Lute player and she is now not here. Why is an other Lute player playing instead of her…?«, a fine lady was asking.

Mihaela asked: »What happened? The first soloist position belongs to Palmina! Palma?..Did they expect that Palmina comes not back from China?«

Palma was shocked.
Beside him a pair whispered »Look,!… The lady with the golden cloth has a father which is member of the Church of Security. All in Venice are saying he pays the high costs of the membership and then the church does not steal their letters…«

»Really? They are members of the forbidden criminal network of Mr.Cambridge??…«

»She plays instead of Palmina here. Her 1st lute position is only for the best lute player of the Republic of Venice – the mighty R.O.V.«

Palma was sad to see an other first lute soloist.

»Her father is very rich and the Church of Security takes a lot of money to organize intrigues…«

»Palmina is our best lute player!!! We want to hear Palmina!!!….«

»She is the best lute soloist…«

»What is here going on…???«

Palma and Michaela were so sad that Palmina is not here.

At the little break of the concert Palma and Mihaela and a lot of Venetian »Palmina-fans« leaved decently the concert and were disappointed that a member of the Church of Security did pay for that expensive concert.
Palma and Mihaela went slowly the same streets Palma often went with Palmina to the »Campo San Provolo« where Palma is living and Mihaela is living in the little house straight ahead.

»Don’t be sad, Palma. Palmina will be soon back to Venice, it is such a deep love which connects you both, don’t forget that.«, Mihaela said to his Cousin.

* * *

This night Palma dreamed from a letter which Palmina wrote as she arrived the far-east island.

Yes, this letter Palmina wrote really, but the Church of Security stole it from Palma’s letter box. It was the brother of the lute player with the golden cloth.

And the text of the stolen letter was like this:
»China, Kingdom of Tungning, 1581 –

Dear Palma!

I write you from my Concert-Tour here in China from the Kingdom of Tungning.
It is a beautiful island here. Much sun, and the temperature is quite warmer as in Venice.

It happens all like you dreamed once in the night.
Daily I see 6000 pigeons flying near to me, it looks so beautiful.

The Chinese ship brought us to this Chinese Kingdom south-west-part of the little island.
The European gave that island the name ‚beautiful‘ and the Chinese gave them the name ‚East Peace‘ 東寧 and the indigenous have their own name of it.
They all liked your composition very much and are very thankful for you paintings.
Especially Princess Lin liked the copy of your painting »Virgin with child and Saints« *)
It looks so European-Asian…


*) picture of »Virgin with Child and Saints« by Palma il Giovane

Every day I have a performance with your compositions here on that island.
We travelled several times around the island.

Tomorrow I will have the possibility to warn the last members of the Ming Dynasty that 1683 will be a dangerous year and they should now come back in a few months with us to Venice to save their live.

I hope I am diplomatic enough and find the right words – I have to be careful…
I will ask princess Lin to translate into Chinese Language and into the 26 languages of the indigenous people here on the island. They should also be warned about the year 1683 to save their culture.

I have now a little bit time to play all your compositions you sent me via our Peony-Gondola. And you will hear them as music transmitted in Venice.

I don’t know how this music transmission will work, but if it works I will play for the poor women of the »Ospedale« at the Jesuits in Venice now every day at the time of the daily concert in Venice in your local time-zone time.

I am with my thoughts and music playing with you, my Palma and with the poor women of the »Ospedale«.

I am not forgetting you, my Palma. I have much career success here on that island.
But I miss you and I always think on you, and your artworks and your compositions.
I love you so much.
The ship came so early, as we wanted to marry, you and me.
We are connected with our hearts every day.
As we met and spoke in Venice for 8 minutes, my heart did find your heart – It was as if we are already married with our hearts.
So please wait for me. The two recent concerts are taking my time a little bit longer as expected on that island.
I hope my letter comes secure to Venice.
The contact between this Kingdom and Venice is very good. So they bring personally the letter with a ship to Venice, they guaranteed me (Royal Postal Ship).

Oh, I should not forget you to write about the encounter with the »Cantico delle Creature« with the indigenous cultures and the Ming Dynasty.

I explained to the 26 representative of their 26 indigenous cultures about the »Cantico delle Creature«.

They wondered that this text was written by an European.
They say that this words of the »Cantico delle Creature« with its ANCIENT NATURE-IMAGES, like –

BROTHER SUN,
SISTER MOON,
BROTHER WIND ,
AND WEATHER,
SISTER WATER,
BROTHER FIRE,
SISTER MOTHER EARTH,
SISTER CORPORAL DEATH

– are the same principles the most indigenous traditions are believing in.

Princess Lin translate the old Italian text into the 26 languages *) and they were thankful to get this peace message of the »Canticle of Brother Sun«.

With this text, they hope, they can keep their traditions, the »Cantico delle Creature« in old-italian original text, as bridge between the two traditions, and they are protected by massive colonisation by the European and Chinese Cultures.

They say if this text was given also to the indigenous people of America the catholic church would never try to destroy indigenous traditions so brutally, because »SISTER MOTHER EARTH« and so forth are the same principles all indigenous people in the world are believing and respecting.

It was interesting that our translation, you and Princess Lin made in Venice into Chinese Language is also accepted in the Kingdom of Tungning.

The Chinese People from the Kingdom wondered that this text has so much similarities to their old 8 IMAGES of the I-GING *) Text in Asian traditions –

HEAVEN,
WATER,
WIND,
THUNDER,
LAKE,
FIRE,
EARTH,
MOUNTAIN

– which is known as living tradition in Daoism, Confucianist and Buddhist tradition at old Ming dynasty and in India.

They wondered also that this text is coming from an European writer, inspired by the Psalm 104, the »Creation Psalm«.

Maybe this text has rood of an old tradition which was told into all cultures of the world, Indigenous, European, Asian, Egyptian and so on.*)

The Indigenous people hope that this text of the »Cantico delle Creature« will help that not the same thinks happen in the future to them like in America to the indigenous people.
It is also a much smaller island and the problems could really be managed in a creative peaceful and respectful way to keep all traditions – to keep in Dialogue.

So I wrote you so long now, my Palma, my painter, my composer and deep and old love.

I hope to be soon with you again together in Venice.

Your you deeply loving Palmina Albina, soon your Palmina Negretti-Albina or Palmina Albina-Negretti.

Palma lifted her hand and kissed her hand secretly and her eyes shined and Palmina smiled innocently.
»I am so looking forward to play your new creations for me and my lutes…«, Palmina said being lucky.
Now the voices of the young students and artists could be heart at this moment and Palmina and Palma went on their place to expect the students and to begin this painting lesson…

* * *

Palma and Palmina saw this vision and they smiled silently.
»Yes, the Titian School…the famous Titian-school…«, said Palma with a sigh in his voice.
»So much artwork we made there…especially your compositions…your secret compositions for me…!«, Palmina answered.
»And don’t forget the music art projects for the poor women and for the poor girls of Venice«
»…especially at the Jesuits at Giudecca, ‚La Zitelle‘ and at the ‚Ospedale‘, the »Ospedaletto dei crociferi«
»Yes, I remember, Palma… I remember very good…specially as I came back after a long time…«

* * *

In their Peony Gondola at the 23rd hour of the day (11 p.m.) they remembered at the birthday feast at the garden of the Jesuits on the evening at the island Giudecca in Venice.

* * *

Palma arranged a big private music birthday-feast for Palmina and the artists played the »Peony Gondola song« composed by Palma il Giovane, performed by 30 »Gondolieri« with their mandolins, first on the San Marco Place, then in the gardens of the Jesuits at ‚La Zitelle‘.

There was also Cardinale »Christiano«, an old friend of Palma il Giovane.
Palma knows him since his childhood.
He was impressed by the art performance on the San Marco Place.
At this evening, sitting together with Palma il Giovane and Palmina, he said to them:
»Today I heard that the mighty Dogan was amazed by the performance on the San Marco Place and he had the idea that Palmina should play for the poor women at the »Ospedale« and you, Palma, my friend, should paint 8 paintings there at the Jesuits…He will make this projects possible…would you agree to realize that great idea of our Dogan? The Jesuits of the »Ospedale« agreed that you, Palma should paint the painting artwork and you, Palmina should play there for the poor women,… this great music creations….by the way… who composed this music dedicated to Palmina?…«

Palma and Palmina smiled and Palma said »We agree… Christiano, we are ready to start this big art projects… «

Cardinale Cristiano was happy to bring good news to the Jesuits at the »Ospedale« and to the mighty Dogan, which was mightier than the Pope.

»Hmmm…Palma? May I ask a personal question?…«

»Yes, Christano…«, Palma answered.

»My elder sister Sabina and my younger sister Manuela wants to ask if they can come to the Titian school…? I could arrange an official meeting…«

»Hmm…why not, they want to learn to paint and to draw?«

»A little bit…but the reason is they want to be painted…«, Christiano answered.

»What does your father say, Christiano,…?«

»Oh he says YES, for paintings like the saint virgin paintings, angel paintings, saints paintings… but for mythological paintings I don’t know his opinion…«

»Ask him first…, dear Cardinale Christiano, my old friend, we need always the permission of the parents…
You know, we are the best painting school with a high level of quality and a high honour codex.
After that: talk to my secretary to make an official meeting at the Titian-school…«, Palma answered very fast.
»And it is ok…that you and Palmina are working together at the Ospedale…?
I mean, we can arrange concerts for the poor women…! They can listen to Palmina’s lute playing as a variation of music-art-therapy…? also during you are painting….«
Palma looked asking into Palmina’s eyes and her heart said »YES, Palma, where you go – I follow you, my Palma, my painter, my composer, my big love…«
The Pigeons in the trees made »Gro, Groooooo« and Palma understood the Pigeons and the thoughts of Palmina.
Both looked into their eyes and nodded »YES!«

Both said now YES to work together at their future projects at the »Ospedale«.
It was also a YES to their own creativity – a YES to their own INSPIRATION – finally a YES to the Saint Spirit.
A YES to a new big change – their big change for their secret growing love – this art project will be very important for their common future. This art-project will bring them slowly together.

Cardinale Christiano was lucky and smiled.

»And Palma…? The new church ‚La Zitelle‘ will be build in 4 or 5 years, here at the Jesuits. You can make a painting and Palmina can play for the opening of the new church…«

Palma and Palmina smiled.
What a wonderful present on Palmina’s birthday here on Giudecca at Venice.

107. How Palmina got secretly Palma’s composition in the Titian-School

107. How Palmina got secretly Palma’s composition in the Titian-School

picture - Palma il Giovane, ORATORIO DEI CROCIFERI - Venice

 picture – Palma il Giovane, ORATORIO DEI CROCIFERI (Ospedale), Venice 1583-92*)

In their Peony-Gondola they had also this vision and they saw this:

* * *

Giaccomo Palma il Giovane gave the servant orders to bring the new music score in the painting hall on the stage where Palmina’s music stand is.

No one knows that there is a secret new composition for Palmina with the other music score at Palmina’s music stand.

Palmina was very decent and smiled as she saw the new composition of Palma entering the stage.
Carefully she raised her beautiful eyes over her music score to see in Palma’s direction.
Palma smiled also decently as he felt her eyes looking in his direction, but his head was turned sideways. The just incoming painting students should not figure out that Palma and Palmina has a common »music secret« and why Palma now is so happy looking and smiling.
As they saw him smiling they smiled also and greeted him respectfully in the old tradition of the 16th century.
They did not know that Palmina discovered the new music composition for her on her music stand. They could not imagine why also Palmina is so happy and secretly smiling.
No painting student in the big hall realized that Palma is giving to her a new composition on that secret way via a servant.

* * *

Palmina studied the composition secretly and played it the next time during the painting lessons in the Titian-School.
On such days Palma was the luckiest man in the universe.
Every day he expected to hear a new piece which he composed for her, which Palmina played for him with much love and very heartfelt.
How Palma was lucky as he went his way controlling and teaching his painting students along the big hall in the fine palazzo in Venice.
Sometimes 15 students were here and painted.
Palmina is playing nearly every day here on the stage, on the right side of the stage during a model was sitting in the middle of the stage.
Giaccomo Palma’s heart connectednow with Palmina’s heart and they both hugged invisibly with their »inner-heart« during the music.
Sometimes Palma went in the left corner of the hall, to be unseen, to look a little bit into Palmina’s direction, where she is playing wonderfully on the stage his composition – his secret composition. No student did realize that he composes nearly every day a new composition for his beloved Palmina Albina.
Every composition by Palma il Giovane was a tender secret »love message« to Palmina’s heart.
Every performance by Palmina Albina of this new secret music love-letters was a secret music-loving-answer, a music-»YES!« to Palma’s heart.

A yes to Palma – A YES to his artworks and paintings – A YES to him as Master and teacher – A YES to his music creations – A YES to the slowly growing love of them, which was growing day by day – composition by composition – artwork by artwork.

Sometimes she made a little look in his direction, short, but also smiling.
The students had no time to observe this secret music communication.
But they felt the good energy of the music and they where very good concentrated working on their artworks. Also for a model, which is also on the stage to be painted by them, it was easier to hold its positions with such beautiful music.
Palma and Palmina lived their love as a spiritual deep music love.

* * *

This they repeated every day.
Palma composed – Palmina played.
Palma composed – Palmina played.
Palma composed – Palmina played.
Palma composed – Palmina played.

Every day the servant brought the music score to Palmina before the painting lesson started.
And every day there was a new composition on her music stand.
And even Palma was in that moment in an other room of the big beautiful palazzo, he felt that Palmina is smiled being lucky to have his new music score – He also smiled in this moments.
An if she was sure to be alone in the hall, often she was the first there, Palmina kissed sometimes the music score and hold it to her cheek.
On one day Palma was a little bit earlier and he entered the hall. He saw Palmina on the stage with her Lute, trying out some bars of his new composition, playing it very, very »pianissimo«. Then she kissed the music score and Palma saw this.
Slowly he came to her on the stage and she smiled greeting him and she did rehearsal his new composition.

Palmina smiled and Palma listened.

Now he stood behind her looking also down to the music score looking over her beautiful shoulder.
She wear such a beautiful cloth and her hair were so nice – nice also to paint, Palma thought.
Palmina played and Palma listened interested.
Now both are alone in the hall on the stage.
As Palmina wanted to turn the page of the music score Palma wanted also to turn the page.

In this moment both hands – Palmina’s right hand, Palma’s right hand – came suddenly unexpected to the same position on the page and touched secretly each other.
Palmina smiled and did not move her hand – Palma smiled and his hand stayed on her fingers.
Both felt the magic »heart-to-heart« connection as they felt it in the time of »silence«.
now Palmina smiled stronger and Palma smiled stronger.
Now his big hand covered her female hand like wanting to protect her as Master Giaccomo Palma il Giovane. She felt his love: Palma covered her with his warm strong love.
Both stayed in this position as long as possible and they looked into their eyes and their hearts talked to each other given each other love and light.

*) Palma’s Paintings at »Ospedaletto dei crociferi«
– Oratorio dei Crociferi, Venice – Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oratorio_dei_Crociferi,_Venice

»The Oratorio dei Crociferi (Oratory of the Cross Bearers) is a small Roman Catholic prayer hall found across from the church of the Gesuiti in the sestiere of Cannaregio Venice, Italy.
History

The oratory was part of a convent found by the Order of the Crociferi, a twelfth century order dedicated to ministering to soldiers and pilgrims participating in the crusades or travels to the Holy Land. They had been patronized by Doge Renier Zen, who endowed them with a large inheritance. By the 1300s, it had become a hospital. The complex here had become by the 15th century a hospice for poor women.

The oratory was decorated with eight canvases depicting scenes from the Order of the Crociferi (1583-1592) by Palma il Giovane. The ceiling has a painting on wood of the Assumption of the Virgin with Angelic Musicians. A hospice at the site still remains adjacent to site. Relative to the elaborate Gesuiti facade, the oratory is plain entrance flanked by a house with four tall chimneys. This oratory is owned by the Instituzioni di Ricovero e di Educazione (IRE); entry is by reservation only. The site underwent restoration in 1982-1984.«


 

99. Secret Music Heart on the Sky over Venice

99. Secret Music Heart on the Sky over Venice

„Venice, 15..

 ( Letter 99 )

Dear Palmina!

I am so lucky that you are back to Venice.
How long did I wait to hear your wonderful Lute playing.
You are the only one who can play the Venetian Lute AND the Chinese Lute.
Yes, Your concert I liked very much – the whole night I dreamed from your music performance.
Especially your heartfelt Lute playing I love very, very much.
Here in Venice you are a free artist, protected by the mighty state of Venice, the Republic of Venice – the R.O.V.

Thank you that you played my composition.
Also It makes my heart lucky that you are playing again in our famous Titian-School.
It is a tradition since Master Titian that a lute is played during the painting session with the students.
The results are much better if YOU are playing in our Titian-painting-school!!!
Tomorrow we will have a big moon solstice…

* * *

And as Master Palma il Giovane wrote this imaginary letter to Palmina in his diary Palmina could feel his positive thought to her.
Yes, she could understand the meaning of his letter although she was not in the same room with him.
She took his Pipa lute and started to send him love.

Palmina Albina played on her Pipa the »Pipa Solo 5 – LAKE«.

* * *

Palma smiled and could feel her love and took in this moment his Viola da braccio and played the self composed Viola part of „Pipa Solo 5 LAKE…“.
Palmina appeared in his dream sitting beside him and playing the Pipa-Lute Part of Palmas tender composition, which he composed for her to play it for his speech in the Venice-Titian-Art-Gallery.

Palma appeared beside Palmina in her little room at the »Calle de la Pieta.«

Palmina could hear Palma playing the Viola-part…
Palma could hear Palmina playing the Pipa Part…
Although every one was in an other room in Venice a miracle happened:
They could make music together over a big distance – Secretly and cultivated.
And they played together and it was like that:

VIDEO: [Solo 5 for Pipa and Viola – LAKE ] https://youtu.be/1VJ0ID2g2Mo

* * *

After they played this on the sky over Venice a secret music heart appeared:
Palmina looked on the sky sitting at her window over her little beautiful garden in the »Calle de la Pieta«
Palma looked also at this pink heart on the sky sitting at his window at the »Campo San Provolo« where the famous Venice-Titian-Art-Gallery is.
Palmina smiled.
And as Palma felt that Palmina smiled they saw each other with their hearts and smiled to each other.

97. First painting session with Palmina’s Lute playing in Venice

97. First painting session with Palmina’s Lute playing in Venice

And they continued the see their Peony-Vision in their 23rd hour of the day (11 p.m.):

* * *

Palmina played wonderful and all loved Palmina and the audience where amazed by her beautiful interpretation of Palma’s compositions for Pipa-Lute.
They brought Palmina flowers and she smiled very happy.
It was if she was yesterday playing here in Venice and not for such a long time on her island.

Suddenly Palmina went down from her wooden stage and went into the first row, where Palma il Giovane was sitting. She took his hand and went with him on the stage.

»He is the composer!!!« Palmina said.
A lot of well known persons did know »This is our famous painter Palma il Giovane!«
»Yes, bravi, bravi…the famous painter of the big paintings in the Dogen’s Palace.«
»Bravi, bravi… He finished Master Titian’s Pieta as he was weak and old!…«

»And the lute player is the little girl who played lute in his last years before Master Titian died in 1567 to support Palma il Giovane’s artwork…!«

»Bravi, Bravi…Palmina Albina’s Lute music and Palma’s compositions did make Master Titian keep alive for 3-4 years….instead of dying of weakness «
»Yes, all, here in Venice are telling this about them…Bravi, bbravi, Braaaaavi…«

* * *

As they saw this in their common dream as Peony-Vision Palma said to her:
»Palmina..?«
»Hmm?…«
»This was very nice from you deciding to play my compositions!«
»Oh…I like them really and I love you…«
»But you also told the public that I am the composer…«
»I know, you are shy…but I learned to stand to OUR CREATIVITY…No one has the right to suppress our creativity… I’m not a product with a Number of any organisation…«

Palma kissed her tender and soft and she put her arms around him.

So they continued to dream their common visions in Venice and they saw this:

* * *

Palmina put her both lutes (The Venetian Lute with 6 Strings and the Chinese Lute Pipa with 4 Strings) on the little stage and went the long way along the empty, but beautiful and big atelier hall of the Titian-painting-school which was in a bigger palazzo than the Venice-Titan-Art-Gallery at the »Campo di San Provolo«.

The atelier was filled with empty easel, maybe 12 to 15 easel.
As Palmina left the big room she thought: »How beautiful are these rooms.
As I was last time living here in Venice the Titian School had not so fine and big rooms.
It seems that the Titian-School has developed to a very fine art-school with a high ranking in the Republic of Venice – The R.O.V.«
Palmina saw also the servants who cleaned the floor so it was like a clean mirror.
Looking around this amazing big palazzo Palmina was impressed. She looked around the famous building, she had a few minutes till her first painting session in this Titian-School will begin.
»Such a long time I did not live here in Venice.
I hope in Palma’s live did all turn to a better live.
I was only connected with my heart with him. Now I see that Palma is very, very respected in Venice, more then on that time our family moved to Cyprus-Island«.

Palmina was now happy to live again here and she decided to be on Palma’s side as near as possible. She decided to live a creative life with and around Palma.
»On that beautiful island I am only a number. How was it ……hmmm…….I forgot it…. Here our fine white fresh little breads all Venetian are likening and loving. All asked me and mum for them..Mum wants that we start to produce again our fine breads here in Venice. Our bakery is backing again for Venice and the Dogan’s palace. Now we have so much servants in our bakery so I have enough time to rehearsal for the concerts here in Venice. Here I am a free artist. No one makes me any prescriptions…«

Meanwhile the students came in the big atelier very slow and silent. They are dressed in the finest cloths…
After a while 15 students, girls, women and young men take their place at the easel.
They cleaned their painting brush and prepared themselves for the painting session with Master Palma il Giovane.

The painting model lady came with a beautiful red cloth and sat on a chair on the stage.
She should be painted today from all the students.

The students looked around the model to see how she looks like from the near.
During the painting session it was not allowed to come near to look at her.
Some students tried to say how she should sit on the chair and in which direction she should look.
The model lady in the red cloth was now a little bit uncertain in which direction she should smile. They discovered the two lutes of Palmina and took them as it was only a utensil for paintings.

(to be continued…)

 84. Palmina inspiring to compose the »Cantico delle Creature«

And as Palma gave his beloved Palmina a good hold and much love and sympathy in this 23rd hour of the day (11 p.m.), sitting together in their secret Peony-Gondola, Palmina smiled now again.
How lucky was Palma to see his Palmina starting to smile a little bit.
»If my Palmina is smiling…life is beautiful«, Palma thought.

Palmina could feel his thought,
she took her lute and plucked:
A – D – E – a
Palma understood and took his Viola and plucked:
c – g – d‘ – a‘
Palmina smiled and looked to her Palma.
Palma smiled and looked to his Palmina.
Both wanted to make this short music-dialogue again:
Palmina plucked:
A – D – E – a
Palma smiled back to her and plucked also on Viola:
c – g – d‘ – a‘

»Palmina, you are my angel…«, Palma said.
Palmina felt that he wants to say that she always inspires him for paintings, drawings, compositions.
»Without you, I would have left Venice and travel like Marco Polo to find my Chinese Princess around the world…«
»I know… I was the reason to make you staying in Venice…
In earlier centuries we traveled through whole China – you (Marco Polo) and me (The Chinese princess) – you found me as Peony-Pavilion-Miracle on the West-Sea again in the Chinese Chunk, while I was playing the Pipa-Lute.«
»… Your Pipa-Lute playing was fascinating for me. deeply in my heart.
And I wanted to show you my Venice and we had 600 People traveling with us, protecting you, with several Chinese Chunk-Ships…
Your Pipa playing inspired me to be more and more interested in arts and music.
So in this 16th century I became a painter and secret musician and secret composer…“

»…and in 300 or 400 years you will compose a big artwork – the »Cantico delle Creature«…«

»Oh, YES, I will…
my Byzantine Princess, my little European-Asian Princes, my Chinese Pipa playing Princess…you will inspire me even I will not know your name in 300 or 400 years…«

»And Palma…Don’t forget to compose some little Pipa soli in your big artwork about the creation „Cantico delle Creature“«

»Oh, yes… A traditional European-Venetian Artwork for Choirs and orchestra AND: some little Pipa soli…«

»Oh yes, please…Palma,… a love between East and West… Marco Polo and his Asian Princess«

»Ok, I will try, but the Pipa solo should be according to the 8 natural-images of the Psalm 104 ¹ of the 3 monotheistic traditions and the Natural Image after the I-Ging² of 3 chinese/asian traditions and the Images of the »planet spheres« of Dante Alighieri – ‚Divina Commedia’«

»Oh this sound great…Much work, isn’t it? …Hen duo gong zuo, shì bu shì ma?«

»Oh yes..I have to study the Psalm 104 [1] ¹,
The Sun-Hymn of Amenophis IV (Echnaton) [2],
‚The Divine Comedia‘ (Divina Commedia) after Dante Aligieri,
especially the 3rd part »III. IL PARADISO« [3],
with its descriptions of the Planet spheres…«

»…it is written in old-italian language…
And you have to study the 5000 year old text of the I-GING² the wisdom Book of Change [4]«


¹ Christianity, Hebrew, Islam
² Taoistic, Buddhist , Confucianist
(these 3 traditions see in Asia: esp. Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Tibetian, …)

[1] – [5] see below


»It is written in old-Chinese language – also difficult to read for Chinese speaking people.
I have to speak with master LAO from our Art gallery and princes Lin, to help me to translate the old texts and to help me to understand it…«

»This will take much time of text studies, isn’t it….Shì bu shì ma?«
»Yes this is much text for a whole life…«
»And you have to study the old italian text of the ‚Cantico delle Creature‘ [5] and its relations to all cultural old tradition in Europe and in the world…«
»Yes, so I travel in old texts around the world…like Marco Polo…«
»Yes and some old Indian text from India and so forth…«
»And so forth…«
»And this studies you put into music proportions and special melodies…«
»Yes, my angel, yes my Palmina, my beloved Princess, I will…
300 or 400 years will be a good time to finish that composition, isn’t it…?«
Palmina smiled so lucky and with a pure and innocent heart saying:
»YES, I am looking forward for your Cantico delle Creature…And my 8 Pipa Soli. Maybe you can use the 8 Pipa-soli you composed for me for your speech about Chinese and European Culture…«

»O yes! This is the same Idea I had also… They are composed for this use also but with the 2nd Viola-part…You are my saint pigeon…my saint INSPIRATION… I LOVE YOU PALMINA…«

Palmina smiled and she was initiative like at the »first cheek kiss« and their secret island and she was like the Venus deity (mythology) in Palma’s „Venus and Mars“*) (with the 2 Pigeons).


*) see: part 4 –  »4. Mars and Venus on the little Venetian Island or the two tender loving pigeons (2 Pigeons music-inspiration) « (click to read part 4)


Venus kissed his Mars and Mars was surprised that she was initiative.
Now she was like that Venus on this special painting by Palma.
And again Palma felt into a big inspiration. He heart the angels singing the Cantico delle creature. After the little Spring-Melody the angels started to sing „Altissimu…“
Master LAO appeared on the heaven beside Princess Mia Shon / St. Lucy and they translated the old-italian text *) into Chinese letters **)

The two trigrams, the CREATIVE ☰ and the RECEPTIVE ☷, are not mentioned because, as HEAVEN and EARTH, they actually are those emanations of the spirit within which, through the action of the derived forces, the visible world comes into being and changes. Each of these forces acts in a definite direction , but movement of opposites, without cancelling each other, set going the cyclic movement on which the life of the world depends.“ p. 272

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

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

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

* * *

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

* * *

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

* * *

And this early evening in the Gallery went also fine:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(to be continued…)


66. Little surprise in the Dogan’s palace and the Queen of Thailand

66. Little surprise in the Dogan’s palace and the Queen of Thailand

As Palma remembered all this, during Palmina played on her Lute in the Dogans’s Palace, Palma looked secretly to his beloved Palmina on the stage.

After the long applause for Palmina the Queen of Thailand brought also a few artist’s with her ship, who performed a traditional dance with traditional costumes and music of Thailand.

After this cultural performance the Queen send a greeting message to all honour guests in Venice and announced that she will held a short speech about her county, culture and special traditional medicine, this after the dinner in the Venice-Art-Gallery and after the little concerts and presentation of Venetian Paintings by Palma il Giovane.
And now, a little surprise on Palmina’s birthday: Three musicians came on the stage and performed a little music INSPIRATION for Chinese Lute Pipa, Venetian Violin and Venetian Viola.

VIDEO: [Inspiration for Pipa+Violin+Viola]: old:https://vimeo.com/274465580 new: https://youtu.be/VStoAuuPmiA

Palmina knows: this music piece she heard as ensemble-version and she loved it.
»Oh, my Palma… he made a little music surprise for me – today on my birthday…I understand his secret music-message: INSPIRATION, how nice…a friendly message from an European composer to an Asian culture tradition…«

Palmina sat with her Lute in the Audience and looked secretly to her Palma il Giovanne.
How nice he was dressed…but I know him and like him as he is … also with his ‚painting-clothes’…I love him…mum likes him also… I love him, no matter if he is dressed well or not…«, Palmina thought and smiled to him.
Palma smiled back and thought: „… For my Palmina, a little music message without words… Music can say more then every stolen letter by the criminal Mr. Cambridge… – How beautiful she is… – beautifully dressed…loving her fine, sweet smiling…I love her as she is…If she would be dressed simply, I would love her nevertheless…My Palmina, she inspires me in every moment of my live…This is a music surprise for Palmina. I did not say to her before… «

– »I am SO LOOKING FORWARD to hear also the secret music surprise from Palma after the Gallery concert…But where? Where he will bring me with his Gondola to perform for me the big music surprise….?«

Palmina could not guess. Ok it is a music-secret. Palma always loves to have music-secrets with her secret princess Palmina, Albina, Altina.

* * *

Palmina and Palma saw this in their common Peony-Gondola, sitting in their soft seats, at the 23rd hour of the day at 11 p.m.
Palmina kissed Palma’s cheek tenderly, holding her Pipa and Palma hold her talented hands and kissed them soft and decently, holding his music instrument Viola.
„My Palma il Giovane…“
-“ My Palmina il principessa…“

32a. Pigeons cage exchange on the Rialto bridge – Palma’s music secret idea for Palmina

Palmina and Palma continued to dream their common dream:
They saw themselves in a vision:

* * *

Palmina was so happy to receive Palma’s letter.
„The letter Pigeon is the best way the send a letter to Palma!“, Palmina said full of joy.

Also Palma was very, very lucky to continue the written contact with the help of a letter-pigeon.

But how can they answer a letter? –
The letter pigeon does not fly back!

They have to exchange the cages with the pigeon at a place in Venice. Where?

Both had now at this 23rd (11 p.m.) hour of the day the same thought:

„We have to meet at the Rialto Bridge….!“
This bridge was especially designed for the secret meetings of Palma and Palmina by the famous Da Ponte 1691 as inspiration of the painting-progress by Master Titian and Palma.

And so they did….

The next day they met at the Rialto Bridge as they usually shortly-secretly met there.

She went from the south-side steps and he went from the north-side-steps…
No one could see that they are coming to meet on the bridge.
Palma was the first. He had his pigeon in his cage and some painting utensils with him.

He put the cage under the north-arch at the left side.

A few moments later he saw a smiling pretty women with a cage and a lute.
This is Palmina! – She puts her cage with her pigeon under the south-arch on the right side.
Palmina smiled to Palma sending a golden heart-to-heart smile to him.
Palma seemed now to look ten years younger and had also a smile in his face.

As they saw that no one is observing them Palmina went to Palma’s pigeon cage and Palma went to her pigeon cage.
So both changed their position. Palma picked up now the other pigeon cage from the floor an went along the south-side steps back and Palmina picked up now also the other pigeon cage and went her way along the north-side steps.

No one observed this secret exchange.

So they made this nearly every day to exchange their letter pigeons.

And every day they wrote them their secret love-message…

No one could read their letters!

Both were very careful and their white pigeons also.

No one could figure out that they exchanged secretly their pigeons on the Rialto Bridge

* * *

Later at one day at his speech in the Venice-Titian-Art-Gallery Master Lao explained that in China the people likes to have birds in a cage. Very often they take their beloved bird with their cage and they bring them into a beautiful park. So the imprisoned birds can sing and talk to others in that park. They can see each other and they can exchange beautiful melodies with singing for each other poetically.
But only letter pigeons are allowed to fly free and to come back as they want to fly.
But every time they come back!

* * *

As Palmina a Palma saw this in their dream, she put her head on his side and he put his arm around her with much tender love feeling.

They are sitting together in their Peony-Gondola in their soft seats and smiling and dreaming.

* * *
And they saw Palma thinking:
„Oh, in a few days Palmina will have her birthday. This is a few days after my birthday,
In three weeks and 3 days…“
How can I surprise her? With what a music piece? A composition?

..I have an idea…“
