Lili Marlene


Lili Marlene is not my real name. I live in Australia. I'm an educated person and I've studied psychology at university. I've also worked in a variety of occupations but by far my most important and interesting job to date has been as a mother. I enjoy many different types of synaesthesia. There are few people whose company I enjoy more than my own, and I've been a loner for as long as I can remember.
