In the midst of all the doom and gloom appears this story in today’s Irish Times.

SOME PEOPLE go to extreme lengths to pursue a dream, but Taka Hayashi went further than most. Nearly a decade ago, Taka came out of a Riverdance concert in Tokyo convinced he could tap the boards too.
He was a 28-year-old IT consultant who had never danced. But the concert had changed his life and nobody could convince him otherwise, not even his taxi driver dad who called him “mad”.
“I realised at that moment what I wanted from my life – to be a Riverdancer,” he says.
