head in the clouds

HEAD IN THE CLOUDS/CU CAPUL IN NORI

Prima utilizare a acestei expresii dateaza din mijlocul anilor 1600. Originile sunt incerte, dincolo de asta fiind probabil imaginea unei persoane foarte creative.  In anii 1600 nu existau avioane, deci aviatia nu era un concept care ar fi putut inspira aparitia expresiei. Norii reprezentau ceva imposibil de atins, de aceea , cand o persoana incerca sa vorbeasca despre lucruri imposibile sau stupide, oamenii obisnuiau sa ii spuna ca este cu capul in nori.
