the cake of five candles
i'm a little early, but i wanted to wish a happy birthday to legendary sword saint miyamoto musashi! june 13th is both the anniversary of his birth and his death, he would have been 426, and it still would have been most unwise to pick a fight with him.
which makes miyamoto a gemini, coincidentally he founded a sword style that used both the long and short swords, the niten ichi-ryu.
he shares a birthday with basil rathbone, also a famed swordsman, and actor.
