Sand Angels

In this short drama monologue from the one-act ePlay Sand Angels, Arash rages and sulks over whether or not his life so far has been interesting.

Arash: I’m just feeling like my best years are behind me now since my bday. Part of me thinks I didn’t do enough during my prime. I look back and I see how I moved through life and it never dawned on me that time really does run out. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not stupid, I know we’re all gonna die, eventually, but I never considered that this is it, this is all I’m gonna be. The same day lived over with slight nuances but virtually the same. It’s like living all the variations of the same day with nothing spectacular ever happening. You know, my whole life, I don’t imagine there’s ever been anything spectacular about it. My lifeline has always been a series of small bumps in the road with nothing higher than normal, nothing that would ever make me lose my breath for good reason, and I don’t imagine it ever will.

Arash has been writing stories ever since he could hold a pencil! What started out as an intrinsic love for storytelling has turned into his lifelong passion. There’s nothing he likes better than writing (and reading) stories that is humorous in English and Persian languages, with a touch of Suspense and a poignant streak of truth running through them. Arash is also a YouTuber, Persian singer/songwriter, blogger, traveler, filmmaker, big dreamer, and professional kabob eater. When he’s not writing or dreaming up new stories, you can find him in an adventure road-tripping to national parks!
