These memoirs are the ultimate voice of experience...
I quoted from O Sensei's memoirs in a thread about ki and kindness http://www.aikiweb.com/forums/showpo...&postcount=121. I just noticed at the top of the document that the person who collated the memoirs from various sources says to share them with all who study the art. In fact it says they are to be given for free to anyone interested in aikido or not! So feel free to download them. I was too late to edit my original post to say please feel free to download the document and that was probably lucky because by putting it here maybe more people will notice it.
