Instructions:

  1. Select your pencil from the jar, and sharpen if necessary
  2. Starting at the left edge of the canvas, find a line to follow (it might be thick, it might be thin)
  3. From left to right, trace the line as closely as you can
  4. From the moment your pencil touches the surface, try not to lift it, try to keep going
  5. Try not to break your line, but don’t worry if you do
  6. If you veer away, gently come back
  7. Take as much time as you like
  8. Look closely
  9. Remember to breathe
  10. Once you reach the right edge of the canvas, your line is complete
  11. Sharpen your pencil, and return it to the jar



Optional:

  1. When your pencil first touches the surface, think of what you would like for the world
  2. As you draw your line, think of how this may be achieved
  3. When you finish your line, consider it already done
