My final picture story is about visualizing how a knot complement fibers over the circle. This exercise of the imagination consists of filling the void of space, closed up by a single point at infinity to form the 3-sphere, with a continuous succession of surfaces spanning the knot. That is, through each point not on the curve, there will pass a unique copy of a surface whose boundary is the knot.
