"I fell off my pink cloud with a thud." - Elizabeth Taylor
I've been playing with some photos and voila!, A Pink Cloud was born. That's what it reminded me of anyway. And then I started to search 'pink cloud' and discovered ET's quote. Then I thought 'What the heck did she mean?' and then I found out.
Being “on a pink cloud” meant that you were living in a dream world, as opposed to living in the real, everyday world. Is there something wrong with a 'dream world'? (It's easier to live there.)
In all seriousness though, here is AA's definition of Pink Cloud: The temporary sensation of euphoria and well-being that is characteristic to those who are new to AA and sobriety. For most, the pink cloud eventually dissipates. This heralds the time to get down to business and start seriously working the Steps. We all learn something new everyday.
Also: Pink Cloud. Good name for a nightclub. Or a cupcake. Or a line of bedsheets. Or a cotton candy booth.
