Joshua Wait created Blue Rivers in the Spring of 2003 to provide a platform for sharing original content. He created the paintings, illustrations, and photos for this website. In the early days of Blue Rivers, guests wrote many of the essays and stories on the site.
The name Blue Rivers comes from Josh’s love for the rivers of California where he spent his childhood summers and the creek that ran through the property of his parent’s home. He fondly remembers catching minnows, crayfish, and frogs in that creek as a child.
