How would you explain “one” here?

I was going home. But home, too, was hard to get an image of, harder still to think beyond the last curved enclosure of the desert, where it seemed I had left the better portion of myself as one among innumerable grains of sand…

How would you explain “one” in “I had left the better portion of myself as one among innumerable grains of sand”? Does is mean a grain of sand?
Thanks!

    Yes. It can be rephrased like so. "I had left the better portion of myself as one grain of sand among innumerable grains of sand"
