I can relate to this prickly pear and shrub growing on the side of a cliff. Not really the best place to make your home, but the views are terrific. I like the view from the hillside homes here in the desert, but not enough to buy one. I don't have much of a view out my window from my computer, but it is enough to see the sun shining and the wind blowing and I am satisfied. I need at least that.
