Too Much

When I was at school, I loved writing essays.
That is, if we were given a small range of topics to choose from.
I would choose one easily and sail into my subject.

What fried my brain was to be told, "You can write about anything you like."
My thoughts would dart about like frightened rabbits, trying to latch on to a substantial idea.
I felt strangely unsafe
As if the world had suddenly become too large and there was nowhere for me to hold on to..

If there are many choices, I'd rather exit. Thanks.

I suppose my malaise boils down to an aversion to too  much choice.
You know, when  I sat down to write this blog, I thought to myself,
"You can write about anything at all."
