Reading YKK, it is always heartwarming to see how Alpha cherishes all of her friends. In the quiet spare world of YKK, where people are rarer, a simple visit or conversation with a friend becomes precious event. Alpha doesn't get to interact with as many people of most of us on a daily basis, she makes each encounter count.
When I compare this to the situation typically found in urban settings in the US (and probably the world) where we generally ignore the person sitting next to us on the bus, and we often barely talk to our neighbors, it seems that we tend to take one another for granted.
Ironically it might take a bit of Alpha-like isolation or loneliness for us to fully appreciate each other.
What do other people think? Has YKK change the way you look at other people?

It does improve my view to the surrounding, not to the people.
