Diane Rivoli lives in beautiful upstate New York with her husband of 40 plus years, Joseph. She enjoys the changing of the seasons, singing karaoke, puttering in the garden, partaking of fine wines and entertaining family and friends. She also greatly enjoys visits to the now empty nest by the two grown sons that vacated years ago and the daughter-in-law of her dreams.
She finds inspiration in memories of the past and thoughts of the future, in the smiles that dance in the eyes of those she loves or in the tears that might pool there, in the drops of rain that cling to the window screen or the determined leaf that clings alone to a winter bare tree, in a harsh word, in a wagging tail, in simply being alive.
Everyone has felt the warmth of love and the heartbreaking sorrow of loss. Everyone has reveled in a success or wallowed in a failure, rejoiced in a new beginning, welcomed a friend, or bid a final goodbye. We have all looked back with both nostalgia and regret, looked forward with both excitement and dread, made plans for the future and watched them get scattered and tossed. We have all been awed by the exploding colors of a sunset, laughed till tears rolled down our cheeks, and cried till we had no tears left. These are the emotions and the moments of life. Every Moment is a Poem, Every Poem a Song captures the essence of those moments and lays bare those emotions. It plays the song each moment sings, wrapped in cadence and rhyme
