A Book About Nothing, And Other Telling Topics

“Among the great things which are to be found among us, the being of nothingness is the greatest.” Leonardo da Vinci

In addition to exploring nothing, this book is also about everything else, such as life, learning, play, overcoming fear, living with purpose, being creative, silence, sound, drawing, travel, animals, and much more.

Robert Regis Dvořák has delightfully illustrated his poetic insights on life’s situations so that people both young and old can enjoy, learn, share, and benefit one verse at a time.
