Another Year at Sea by Charles Wysocki "This is the heartfelt story of a woman who awaits her beloved captain who has been detained Another Year at Sea. This sad news has come by mail as evidenced by the opened envelope lying on the stairs and the letter held loosely in her hand. One feels compelled to look out the window with her, knowing in our hearts that no white sails will appear on the dark and boundless horizon."
