Dust In The Wind
im·per·ma·nence /imˈpərmənəns/ noun: the state or fact of lasting for only a limited period of time.
Wanting situations and relationships to be solid, permanent and graspable obscures the pith of the matter, which is that things are fundamentally groundless.
One of the many things I love about the song Dust In The Wind is that it doesn't provide any answers to the issue of impermanence... it just accepts it.
There's no upbeat message at the end of the song about how you can turn everything around if you just put on a happy face and keep your feet moving forward. In fact, it's quite the opposite.
It simply repeats the words: "Dust in the wind... all we are is dust in the wind."
In the Epistle of James chapter 4:14, we find this amazing nugget of wisdom that speaks directly and matter-of-factly into this very idea:
Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.
