Architecture of the imagination

From The Heroine's Journey by G. Miki Hayden:

"Guin went out through the kitchen door, into the castle yard ... [Then she] ran inside and up the high stone steps to the battlements.  ... The tower was round, so no blind spots would a allow the enemy to creep up close without warning.  ..., on the other side of the keep, stone masons were hard at work on a second tower.  ...  Guin [glanced] down to the moat.  Tradespeople busily crossed to and fro on the drawbridge.  Just a typical day in the castle."
