On my anniversary date on
Steem Hive I like to take a look at the past year on the blockchain. Because I joined in February it is a look at the past year too.
Words that describe Hive in 2020 for me
Series (Share Our World and Art Talk)
Community (Dinner, Packages and HiveFest)
COVID19 (Monthly Updates)
I did a lot (16) of hiking this past year in Arizona, Utah, Montana, Tennessee and Oregon.
|Bowman Lake Hike||John's Lake Loop Hike||Radnor Lake State Park|
|Navajo Loop Hike||Narrows Hike||Sunset Queen's Garden Hike|
|Calf Creek Falls Hike||Zion Emerald Pool Hike||White Pocket|
|Pink Coral Sand Dunes||Spooky Cave Hike||Toadstools Hike|
|Trail of Cedars Nature Trail Hike||Avalanche Lake Hike||Hidden Lake Overlook Hike|
And in December on the Oregon Coast, the Indian Sands Hike
Share Our World Series
I changed my series from Share My World to Share Our World. It better describes why I started it- to share the part of the world that I had visited and photographed with others on the platform that might be interested.
All the posts for April Trip to Utah
All the posts for Favorites of May Southern Utah Trip
All the posts for A Week in Montana
All the posts of the December Road Trip to Utah, Idaho, Oregon and quick visits to Wyomig and California
Art Talk Series
Art Talk this past year had the theme of tours of the National Gallery of Art in DC. These were all tours that I designed and took friends on when I lived in DC 2001-2007.
It was so fun to do a post of the tour, then an artist and a piece and a topic from the tour.
June-Andrew Mellon and the Hermitage
Art Talk: NGA Andrew Mellon and the Hermitage Tour
Art Talk: Rembrandt
Art Talk: The Annunciation
Art Talk: Provenance
It was so fun and refreshing to connect with a few Hive people outside of the blockchain, through packages, VR and in person this past year.
In December I met and went to dinner with @laurabellamy in Utah. It was great to meet her!
These inspired me to send packages to some of my Hive friends around the world.
I got to meet @asgarth, @soyrosa and @livinguktaiwan and @galenkp at HIVEFEST 2020
It was a cool experience to go to a conference in VR. I am looking forward to traveling to a new part of the world and meeting people in person in the future!
COVID19 monthly updates
I have been doing a monthly recap and journal of what has happened in my life and the world in regards to COVID19.
At the beginning of the crisis I was so interested to know what was happening in other parts of the world and thought some might like to know about things here in Arizona.
On March 13, 2020 I posted Times of change and uncertainty. A couple of days after the World Health Organization announced that COVID-19 is officially a pandemic and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey declared a state of emergency.

On July 13, 2020 I posted COVID19 Monthly Journal about all the zoom meetings, question about ASU in the fall, how I was doing a lot of family history work and my new stylish face coverings.
On August 24, 2020 I posted Community of Care named after ASU's campaign response to COVID19, which also includes testing for all students and staff and daily check ins, my awesome friends that I am connecting with via Marco Polo, and a family trip to Glacier National Park in Montana.

So there you have my 3rd year of
Steem HIVE and 2020 in review. Oh and I made it to level 70 in October of this year which was quite a cool milestone for me.
