Heavy weather.

Last Friday was the first time since the bombings that I've gotten on an Underground train or a bus without thinking about the possibility of being blown up. When I finally did, most of the way through my journey, I was disappointed.

Today I walked to the Camden Town tube stop. Just outside, near the Halfway House pub, a group of eight police officers were searching two young black men. The men were cooperating, if a bit sulkily and with much eye-rolling. As I passed, a white man in a blue shirt jumped at one of the men, screaming. "You look like one of them, you are one of them, you fucking cunt." The police wrestled him away from the scene. I caught the eye of a woman nearby and she shook her head sadly at me. As if on cue, it started to rain.

Borough Market was extremely quiet today.

I think I'm depressed.
