Svaha is the sound between thunder and lightning. Potent. Divine. Serene.

Otherwise exclusively devoted to:
writing poetry; making art under the name of Christina Springer;
running Sun Crumbs, a non-profit arts group and;
being the best geek girlfriend for my adorable programmer SO.
learning enough about computer buzz words to say Ooooh!, Eeek!, or Argh! at the right moment.
I reside in Pittsburgh,Pennsylvania, but plan to move through the outer limits of cosmic funkiness to the Furthest Expanses of Insterstellar Funkitude for my super freakality reward.

Svaha Will Be Performing Near You Soon!
