A line dotted with shimmering pebbles

Julie Heyward's blog, Unreal nature, has comments turned off at the moment* so there is no way for me to express, in situ, my delight at the following metaphor for an individual life:
"...a line dotted with shimmering pebbles..."
It is taken from Multiple Arts by Jean-Luc Nancy (2006); you can find Ms Heyward's full extract here

*I confess that my own inclination is often to switch comments off, too. Most feedback comes by email. I was persuaded by Ray Girvan of the importance of comments to transparency, early on, but have never really warmed to them...
