I vividly remember this day. It was hot and I thought I would be a hero and see all of Monaco on foot. What I didn't realize was that its hillside terrain would prove to be both incredibly beautiful and challenging at the same time.
I discovered places I would not have imagined I would venture to because a) I was tired and needed rest b) I was lost. The photograph above was taken at the top of the hillside inside of a cactus garden, overlooking the ocean.
As a succulent, Cacti speak a separate language and emit a different energy from the rest of natural plant life. They are still in form, quiet in spirit, and somewhat aloof in temperament.
I can relate to them. -tM
