"All the words he always wanted to tell her." , by Erik Pevernagie, 100 x 80 cm, oil on canvas


The timeless moments between 'being in the nick of time' and 'missing out' may captivate our thinking and arouse a spell of time traveling.

Those moments may be unsuspected anchor points in our lives, confer an astounding depth to our daily experiences, and throw a stunning light on the history of our being.

This impression remains instilled in our mental construction, since memory may be pig-headed and wants us to follow its whims along with the blips and dips of our timeline.

Since many are used to delay important matters and hold up urgent statements, they also often forget the right words at the right moment, for people they care for, and who need sympathy.

"Sorry! We haven't got the time right now." "Later! Yes, we'll do it later. Promised!" "We have so many things on hand. We'll do it next time!" But they forget. Procrastination!

When the fatidical moment has struck, and the point of no return has come, everything is irretrievably too late since the endeared and valued people have vanished.

What remains then are feelings of irreparable mental damage, regret, and remorse.

When grief impounds our thinking and eats our brains, it seeps through all the cracks of our daily living. Only the soothing wind of comforting words may counter the withering twilight and the frostiness of darkness.

If we fail to be 'in the nick of time' or have been 'missing out,' the magic of timeless moments will ignore us.

– Mark Twain has his own opinion about procrastination: “Never put off till tomorrow what may be done the day after tomorrow just as well.”

Phenomenon: procrastination

Factual starting point of the picture: physical disappearance of a person and its mental consequences.
