    No, lima the present isn't an adjective... I think its a noun and a person isnt the present... Im looking for the word you would use to describe somoen who lives only in the present.

    ( and before anyone says it yes I am aware we all only live in the present as it is always the present but go with me please)

    Hedonistic, possibly.

    How about ephemeral or transient or transitory?

    That's pretty much the definition of mindfulness, as I understand it.

    Go corner your sister, I have a word! ... PRESENTIPITUOUS ...

    If we owe Shakespeare many of our modern words, why not owe me one? Check what I found:

    Definition (from the World Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, that is, MINE !! )
    Presentipituous: someone who lives only in the now in an autistic fashion with no concern for the other stages of time. Example: "you immature presentipituous one, stop living in the now and get yourself a bit of a future!"

    So... what do you think? Am I still suitable to be a member of society? ...

    I can't find that word in my Webster's Dictionary. Granted it is copyrighted 1965... But I think your word, Max, is a made up word, like staycation..LOL

    Have you heard some of the nonsensical words they're putting in dictionaries these days?

    so you are looking for a word that means living in the here and now?
