Dear Writers and Readers,

As many of you know, the house that Medium built has been undergoing a lot of changes. During the last few months, we’ve found it has become harder to maintain the experience we want people to connect with. But with each new spring comes growth… and change.

We’re excited to announce that Chance Encounters is moving to Substack!

This new home enables us to finally welcome ALL writers and visual artists who have stories to tell… and better reward our community. …

I watch you fade from an old backdrop as the others fall asleep in a black and white world. They cannot see you as I do. You are the elusive rainbow that spreads outside our realm. I can comprehend only part of you, in my own way.

Despite how quickly the love came, I could never feel you as a whole. You are the evolving sum of more parts than I could ever live. When I first encountered you, I should have been able to recognize that reality. I couldn’t move at your pace. …
