That word jumped out at me today, perhaps because I read it in this sentence in haiku mind by Patricia Donegan:

“If we could expand our vision and really understand the truth of impermanence we would be enlightened on the spot.”

From my on-line dictionary:

“Impermanence” – the state or fact of lasting for only a limited period of time 

I don’t know about being “enlightened on the spot,” but I think if I truly understood “the truth of impermannennce” I’d for damn sure be a bit wiser.
