What are we called to do?

Though I’m in my studio almost every day, 
It’s actually rare for me to paint something I love; 
Rarer, still, to paint something realistic. 
So this one, based on the fig tree 
Outside the window where I meditate, 
Came as quite a delightful surprise! 
But then the question arises: 
Was this just serendipity, 
 Or is it something I could — or should — pursue?
 … and the root question 
Each of us faces every day: 
 What am I called to do?
