Recovering from a third major operation in two years, I've been doing a lot more reading than re-enacting! I spent some months before my latest op preparing myself by practising Aikido again after a break of many years.

It helped me through.

If you are interested in Aikido, my favourite instructional text has become "Best Aikido: The Fundamentals" by Kisshomaru and Moriteru Ueshiba, the second and third (and current) doshu, son and grandson of the founder of Aikido, translated by John Stevens. The title is not inspiring, but the content is: wall to wall clear photograph sequences in the modern style practised at the Aikido Hombu dojo in Tokyo.
