Do You Believe In Karma?

Background Part 1: As many of you know, I've been struggling with an tendon injury in my elbow for almost 2 years now. I haven't surfed in 14 months (with the exception of a 30 minute paddle on New Years Day to watch the sun rise - wavecount =2) in an effort to heal. While I've made progress, I'm still not able to surf.

Background Part 2: Since the inception of this site, it's been misunderstood by many. The original intent was to recreate the joy that I got every month when I flipped to the back of Surfer Magazine and took in the "Extra". Those photos made me laugh, induced a feeling of shock, or created a simple feeling of amazement at one particular moment in time. My intent with this site was certainly not to be malicious (OK, maybe a little bit when posting SUP stuff).

Theory: My wife has never liked my "blog". In fact she thinks that its mean and has brought me bad Karma. Today she suggested to me that if I were to discontinue this blog, my arm would heal. Crazy? Maybe there is some truth to it?

Question: What do you think about the theory? Feedback welcomed. Isn't Karma created by one's true intent, or is the the perceived intent? I'm on the fence, but leaning in her direction.

I was searching for surf injuries on The Google and this came up. The BushPig is not just a descriptive word for that girl you hooked up with after a few too many VB's in the outback.
