Glassy waterdrop on pleated Alchemilla mollis; Glasgow Botanic Gardens

I took this photo just before flying home from Scotland last year and then held the image in my mind during my journey home… it helped me to stay calm and held at bay that terrible, inside-and-out dryness provoked by long flights, plane food and waiting in airports. I often imagine myself wrapped in that glassy raindrop when things get a bit hot… my version of meditation, I guess.  I’m terrible at the regular kind but this is a powerful image for me so perhaps that is why I can visualize it and myself inside it… is that the trick then? To make it personal?
