The notion that some things our society looks down upon, and urges us to avoid could actually be healthy and useful in their own right, is something that has just occurred to recently.
I play in two person band, and we recently wrote a song which I didn't quite understand until I listened to this broadcast.
the lyrics are below, the song is titled You Can Break Me:

Went for a walk in February, in an ice-storm menagerie
sometimes it's hard for me to see the forest for the trees.

Except times like these, when there's a thin layer of ice on all the trees
and everything shows its fragility.
Everything shows its fragility

so you can break me anywhere, you can break me anywhere, you can lay me down to die.
You can crack me anyplace, but these are parts you can't replace, so be gentle, be gentle with me.

Except times like these, when there's a thin layer of ice on all the trees
and everything shines with such clarity.
And everything shines with such clarity.

So you can break me anywhere, you can break me, I don't care.
You can lay me down to die. You can crack me anyplace, but these are parts you can't replace, so be gentle, be gentle with me. And I know you will, I know you.
