I believe in magic.
Even though all indications lead me to believe that certain things are not true or do not exist, I still believe in them. No one can actually tell me that there are not faeries in the hills behind my house. I am 100% sure that there are people among us with supernatural powers. I will fully admit that Santa, the Tooth Fairy, and the Easter Bunny are fictional characters created for the enjoyment of children, and, more likely, the sanity of parents trying to get their kids to sleep at night, but what about faith and miracles? There are hundreds of unexplained medical healings and miraculous happenings that are well documented across the globe.
Although he makes a good point by saying, "It doesn't matter what you do, (kudzu) is going to be around, (and) ain't that a lot like Jesus?" I still can not accept this as magical. If and when this weed covered utility pole performs a miracle, such as lowering utility rates or getting a Ma's Hotdog House to open in Hyden, the I will reconsider and quite possibly make a pilgrimage there. Especially if the whole Ma's Hotdog House in Hyden part comes true.
Until then, I will cling to the old wooden cross, but mine won't be covered in Kudzu.
