Mailbox Arash

In Mailbox Arash, Arash discusses how he feels about society, his father and his life to Doctor Roberts.

Mailbox Arash:  Maybe it’s the world and all the crap I smell…there really is so much of it, bundles of it, oodles of it, wherever you point your filthy nose…walk around the city, all the coke sniffers fled, all having fun in their pools working remotely…it’s a joke, right?

Living off the system. Getting passports made to finally go on that trip to Paris. Buying a new set of clothes and feeling like you’re actually wealthy for the first time in your lousy stinking life. Is that it? Clearly, that’s what it must be. Too many of them have come out here. The lines have grown longer at the post-office. Can’t even back out of my driveway without hitting the breaks multiple times for worry that a car is coming. Fucking lawnmowers are working non-stop and the sudden increase in construction because Jack and Jeeny have the funds to fix the roof and shit all over themselves. Huge landslides of self-importance earned from nothing more than lies and trickery. Conning themselves into thinking they are deserving, they are worthy, they suffered long enough…you know…it’s time they get theirs for once, right? Yeah, we’re all living in this great big fantasy of stupidity and I have to spend more time in my garden. It’s important to pull out all the unnecessary weeds.

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!
