Sterling Canyon knows all about jewelry and the jewels that go into them. One jewel that you may have missed once you read this is the transit of Venus in front of the Sun.

As we pass through our lives, we are met with more and more events that are rare in themselves. To understand and experience rare events in our lives and discovering the world around us, we are enlightened by things that no one else will experience. Our living in the modern world with pictures and electronic forms of media allows us to experience events the vast majority of humankind have not. We should soak up as much as we can and experience as much of the rarest happenings as possible. We are certainly privileged to be here at this moment in human time and we should take advantage of it, share it, enjoy and consume it.
