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

Many are used to postpone important matters, hold up urgent statements, forget to use the right words for the people they care for and who expect empathy. They are used to "procrastinate". “Sorry. We haven’t got the time just now.” “Later. We’ll do it later. Promised ! ” But they forget about it. "We have so many things on hand. We’ll do it next time!"

Again they miss the right opportunity. Then comes, however, the fatidic moment, when everything is too late. The person, they had to care for, has suddenly gone ... for good. The opportunity to exchange crucial words, to pose essential questions , to discuss fundamental ideas, cannot be taken any more. It is irretrievably too late.

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

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

Phenomenon: procrastination

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