Bloodied and browning paid in full yet still muddy and frowning skin drip dripping down my cheek brow bloody and crowning with wearied and woes. On closer inspections gold blues and fades. Slipping into the blur and whir of others greater structures and we’ll adjusted gears. I can almost feel the cool shadow that steps behind this golden light which burns bright but will fall with nary a call to the cool caress of the night. Shagged and worried is it salt or iron by which our eyes are blurried? I haven’t checked as I was hurried by the beats which I was by harried. I fear that too long I have tarried and now away I must be carried.
Fjaka is the lifestyle trend that gives you an excuse to do absolutely nothing. That's right, nothing. Fjaka simply means being entirely relaxed in body and mind and embracing the joy of doin nothing.
Fjaka make sense in Dalmatia, where the turn of phrase was created, because the heat often strips residents of the energy, to do much. When it's that hot to you really don't want to run around and stay busy - so you engage in Fjaka, sittin in the shade (or try to stand on one leg like this pigeon), relaxing and watching the world go by.
Fjaka is not the same thing as laziness or being so exhaused you never leave house. You can do Fjaka with friends, you can do it outside, and it's not supposed to take over your life entirely. You need the most moments of productivity to truly appreciate Fjaka.
Rather than holing up in your bedroom it's worth sitting outside and trying to ground yourself with surroundings, taking in the sounds, smells, and sights around you. If you ever got into mindfulness or #meditation , Fjaka will be an easy feat, as it's a pretty similar state of being. ♡
