    Default a sketch, scribble, or scrabble

    Here is one brief sketch/scribble/scrabble/ of my perspective of life; please edit and comment on it:

    Life on earth is but a short leg of myriad journeys of eternity; therefore, it's not worth it to worry, to be afraid, or to be greedy.


    By the way, which word between slashes fits better?

    Thanks, Tdol, for your comment; I like your version.

    By the way, what would you call it, a sketch, scribble, or scrabble of my perspectives of life?

    I'd say it was a sketch of your perspective. 'Scribble' would refer to the handwriting itself and 'scrabble' seems unconnected to me.
