If you have time in class, explore  also  http://mappingmetaphor.arts.gla.ac.uk/metaphor-in-english/ which claims to have mapped all metaphorical uses in the English language. See whether the example you blogged about map onto this linguistic schema.  The visualization on this page is one I created using the domains of life and vegetation, where life is the target domain and vegetation the source domain.
