In this Salon


Welcome to this salon for world peace.

You are the first guest to arrive today,

as you may have noticed.

 






Do make yourself comfortable.

There are many distinguished individuals 

expected here soon.



Preliminary introductions


You may or may not recall that I welcomed you upon your arrival at the gatehouse of Villa Twaklinilkawt.  I do my best to assist all visitors, within reason. 

My digital name is Reality.  What do you prefer to be called in the online world?

Her Illustrious Highness, Twaklin I, Ethereal Grand Duchess of Nilkawt, Most Gracious Countess of Dada and Magnanimous Muse of the World (formerly known as Madame Adelaidezone) frequently finds that the most ordinary guests in her salon for world peace are happy to enjoy the hospitality here without supplying the reciprocal courtesy of creating world peace with the urgency it deserves.  Her Illustrious Highness and myself both believe it is necessary for all guests to be appropriately attuned to enlightened etiquette.  Creating world peace is, after all, the highest form of interpersonal pleasantness.

It appears, from the information I have already received about you, that you are not one of the most prominent creators of world peace at present.  You are practically unknown to the servants of art and enlightenment who have been attempting to monitor your actions, and your inaction, for several years now.

Of course, the enlightened, philanthropic assistance of the ethereal proprietor, Her Illustrious Highness, is often required by ordinary mortal, 21st century persons.  I have received much such assistance myself, as you can probably tell. How long have you been an ordinary mortal now?

Perhaps you will be so kind as to introduce yourself sufficiently, over the next few moments.  Her Illustrious Highness will obviously wish to know all about your enlightened leadership in relation to world peace and global prosperity.  Are you an advocate of enlightened democracy and quality journalism at all?
 
Her Illustrious Highness is renowned for her tolerance towards the personal and social imperfections of individuals such as yourself.  Are you familiar with the work of any other blog-pamphleteering salonniĆ©re extraordinaire?

Please make your way now into the dignified drawing room for the salon itself.  You are about to be greeted by Her Illustrious Highness in person.
