Welcome to livelonga - a new fitness brand for mere mortals. The longa symbol simply means that the wearer is happily opted-out of superstition and religion - and is a faithful believer in life before death :-D
Any profit from livelonga gear goes to your charity of choice - please specify this with your order.
livelonga tees also incorporate custom codes (we call longa IDs or 'lids'). You can set your 'lid' to load custom text, image, link, email or say or point to anything you want that means something to you. When other users look-up a lid they will see whatever you set e.g:
- - a sentence, statement, phrase or song lyric
- - a website
- - a photograph (of you or anything)
- - social media profile
- - a video
In short, you can link to anything on the web or write something.
So why 'livelonga' and what does it mean?
'longa' - (Music) a sustained musical note, appearing primarily in Early music.
'live' - (Verb) (to continue) to be alive or have life.
Amid the distraction, complexity and responsibilities of life, you know some simple facts:
It is great and very special to be alive.
Someday quite soon, you will die.
Health and love are almost everything.
This life and this world is all you will ever have.
We forget, resent, ignore or deny these things.
livelonga borrows from the simple idea that 'living' is better than 'being alive'...
...that long lives full of health, fun and learning are good things
...that many don't or can't have opportunity and should be helped
...that most people always won't get it, so leave them off.
To livelonga means to live intentionally; taking responsibility for your physical and mental health; fitness, nutrition and well being. It also means being honest and interested in life, learning and science. When you wear the livelonga symbol you stand for these things - in truth you have to stand for these things to wear it.
The livelonga shop currently stocks ethically-sourced Tee-shirts for Gents, Ladies and Kids - and soon, with your help; active-wear for running, hiking, cycling, swimming etc. :-D
