Is there any difference between "being in the clouds" and "having one's head in the clouds"?
Cheers

Yes, "being in the clouds" is not an idiom that I know of. Did you see it somewhere?

Raymott, thank you but your reply is up in the clouds.
I'd normally take that to mean that my reply was so complicated that you couldn't understand it, that it was "over your head". But that's not possible, since it was a very simple reply. So you must be using "up in the clouds" as an idiom which no one here has heard of. What do you mean by it?
