What does it mean to eat rocks for breakfast? One of our athletes used this to describe another coach and the phrase really stuck with me. Her meaning was complimentary, as in "She's so hardcore & tough." Both beneficial qualities for crew. "Rocks for breakfast" is now the ultimate metaphor for moxie. It means being dedicated and disciplined practicing your scales and your squats. Going thru the tough stuff with focus and determination. There is a W.H. Auden quote fun tacked to my computer, "This is the season when we must practice the scales of rejoicing." It is not always easy and sometimes it's drudgery, but it produces results. My goal is to "eat rocks for breakfast" and keep on making things I think are worthwhile & beautiful despite rejections & setbacks.
