We sometimes encounter people, even perfect strangers, who begin to interest us at first sight, somehow suddenly, all at once, before a word has been spoken.
— Fyodor Dostoevsky

Prepare a 7-minute story: Asking a stranger for directions creates a new destination; a casual chat becomes a lifelong adventure; a coffee spilled becomes a romance; a lost house key leads to a new refuge; an uninspiring meeting triggers a new career; a knock on your door from an old neighbor becomes a new soulmate; a 5-minute talk with a stranger at a playground connects you to an amazing apartment rental.

Tell us about a chance encounter that changed you, your day, maybe even your life.
