IMPERMANENCE according to wikipedia means:
Impermanence is one of the essential doctrines or three marks of existence in Buddhism. The term expresses the Buddhist notion that all of conditioned existence, without exception, is transient, or in a constant state of flux.
I’ve been thinking about that transient state lately. It is very true about: Here today, gone tomorrow. Life is that vulnerable. I am feeling that fragile. Things are turning faster and faster – like coming close to the end of the toilet paper roll. All of a sudden the paper ends up a puddle on the floor. The puddle is me.
That is how I am feeling on this warm balmy December day in Saskatoon. I watch the snow melting in slow drips off the roof. I hear Richard Harris singing MacArthur’s Park melting in the dark and someone left a cake in the rain. I’m feeling languid, coming undone in its wake.
Quick! Someone throw me a life line, a fuel injection, anything. Wait. I’m all right for I know that this, too, shall pass. I will sing like Richard Harris and his MacArthur’s Park. Nothing stays the same – ever. There’s a reason and a season for everything.
I will take my life into my hands and I will use it
I will win the worship in their eyes and I will lose it
I will have the things that I desire
And my passion flow like rivers through the sky
