About Me


... perhaps in the end the message of Armenians is more particular than mere persistence. Perhaps, if there exists a deeper possibility in the psyche of this ancient, sturdy, and minor race, it is this: the capacity of a people for proceeding beyond nationhood... To be an Armenian has meant that one has been... free to attempt the struggle of an ordinary life, and to dream more modest dreams, and to try to deal with one's dreams as best one could.

General Info:

My full name is Tatiana Hamboyan Harrison, also known as Tania, Tenzing Chödrön, Funnel, or Cosette. I'm happily married, legally disabled, and live in Maryland, USA. I have Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis and fibromyalgia. Though disabled, I have a web design company called Line by Line web design. Rob and I have a photo web comic, SugarTheCat.com, (named in memory of Sugar, 91-08) that features our 5 cats: Kosette (16 year old female), Min (11 year old female), Snowcrash (7 year old male), Zathras (4 year old male), and Cinnamon (3 year old female). I graduated from St. John's College (Annapolis) in 2004. I'm a Quaker and member of Third Haven Monthly Meeting. I am also a Buddhist, and I've taken Refuge, Bodhisattva, and Precept vows. I write a spiritual blog called Light & Lotus.

I enjoy meditation, meditative prayer, working on websites, reading, writing, belly dancing, video games, etc. Rob and I are going to try to build a hobbit hole eventually. You can read more about my daily life on my livejournal.
