The Namesake and Spring Flowers

This weekend I rented a beautiful movie, The Namesake, about love, family, tradition, culture, devotion, change, and most of all, identity. Some say it captures the immigrant experience in
America, honoring and cherishing the contributions of the past while moving forward into a new identity and a new way of life. The movie also had many gorgeous photographs of India and some beautiful Indian music.

Inspired by this, I had dinner at a new Indian restaurant that just moved into my neighborhood. Crispy samosas, tender and fragrant eggplant curry, and basmati rice were my selections. Later, for dessert, mango bubble tea, a new experience!!!

This weekend we had snow flurries and windy weather, but Sunday was warm enough for a walk on the Ironton Rail Trail. Spring is right around the corner! Here are some colorful Spring flowers in anticipation of the coming season.
