BOA ME NA ME MMOA WO
“Help me and let me help you.” The logo chosen for The Gyneco-bLogic is an Adinkra symbol of cooperation and interdependence. Adinkra is a cotton cloth produced in Ghana, West Africa, which has traditional symbols stamped upon it. The adinkra symbols represent popular proverbs, record historical events, express particular attitudes or behavior related to depicted figures, or concepts uniquely related to abstract shapes.
The symbol resonated with me because the entire concept of this site is to help meet my patients and friends in a place of understanding about health and life topics. Just as I understand many aspects of women’s health, there are things that I don’t understand. For example, legal subjects are like a foreign language to me. Thank God for Lisa Carter at Flourish Counsel, who breaks down subjects of interest into terms that I understand.
I turned the symbol on an angle to reflect the balance beam that is life. We balance work, health, relationships with other people and our relationships with ourselves every moment of every day.
“The major work of the world is not done by geniuses. It is done by ordinary people, with balance in their lives, who have learned to work in an extraordinary manner.”
― Gordon B. Hinckley
