26 Jul Tennessee Lighthouse: A Dream Home and One-of-a-Kind Creative Space (and It Could Be Yours!)
Take a slow, deep breath in.
Now let it go. Do that again a few times, and really pay attention to your breath.
Did you notice it?
It’s the space between your breaths. The moment of total stillness between the inhale and the exhale. It’s just a split second, but there’s something magical about that space.
In her book “Breath: The Essence of Yoga” author Sandra Sabatini writes,
“The pause at the end of the exhalation
And the pause at the end of the inhalation
Is a special place
Where nothing happens or nothing seems to happen
Yet the old air is traveling away from us
And the new breath is ready to move in
In that space between
There is silence
More than anything else
This space and stillness is the essence of your being. It’s where inspiration is born. It’s where creativity blooms.
This idea of “the space between” — or creative space — goes beyond the breath. In music, it’s the space between the notes that creates rhythm and allows melodies to flow… in painting and graphic design, space creates perspective and depth… in poetry, space turns words into poetry.
Then, there are the physical spaces where we do our creative work. The spaces that bring our artistic ideas and dreams to life.
What are your favorite spaces? Where do you go to spark your creativity? What’s your ideal place to make art? Maybe it’s your office or an art studio. Your living room, a garden, a church… or on a concert stage. It could even be at your kitchen table.
Whether you’re a photographer, musician, writer, or any other type of creative, you need a space for inspiration, collaboration, and most importantly, a space to make art.
Tennessee Light House is one of those spaces.
A Creative Space for Photography — And So Much More
Like meditation helps us tune in to the present moment, a photographer connects to and captures a moment in time with the camera lens. The candid glance between two musicians on stage during the peak of a solo; the secret look that says “I love you” between a bride and groom, the laughter in the eyes of children playing.
If you’ve ever met Sara Kauss, international photojournalist and owner of Tennessee Light House, you know her passion for photography. Her love for the art form is palpable. You can see it, and feel it, in her work. You can tell by the way her photographs pull you in, tell a story and perfectly capture an emotion or special moment in time.
Sara wanted to share that passion with others. More than that, she wanted to create an ideal space for fellow creatives to work and collaborate.
That’s how Tennessee Light House was born, a photography and cinematography studio — and spacious, one-of-a-kind home — built by and for creatives.
From fun and casual family lifestyle sessions, to cooking vignettes in the adorable mint green vintage kitchenette, to stunning product photography, Sara has brought people together and shared her creativity with others for the past couple years in this incredible space.
Now it’s time for Sara to share her passion in a different way: by handing off Tennessee Light House to another like-minded creative who will make this space their new home and creative haven (see the property listing here!).
Could that person be you?
