Death opens a door out of a little, dark room (that's all the life we have known before it) into a great, real place where the true sun shines and we shall meet.


My name is Caleb, and I teach sixth grade language arts just outside of Kansas City. This blog used to be called “a big cup of books.” Read here about the ideas behind the change and the direction of this blog currently.

Some things about me: I like coffee (and tea). I like fall. I like books: reading and writing. I like the outdoors. I like peanut butter. My beautiful fiancee is from El Salvador (we’re working on the visa process now). Por lo tanto yo hablo un poco español.

Thanks for stopping by. Please feel free to leave a comment or contact me. 🙂
