The daily grind of London commuting is being brightened by a collection of black marker pens and whiteboards – giving city dwellers a welcome boost as they travel through the metropolis. The hall of Oval underground station looks more like a living room than a Tube stop – complete with plants and a small library, while Beethoven's "Piano Concerto No. 5" plays.It is at this stop on the Underground's Northern Line that Glen Sutherland, an employee of tube operator Transport for London (TfL), whips out a black marker and writes up the "Thought for the Day". Sutherland often chooses positive messages for the "Thought for the Day," encouraging those who may have got out of bed on the wrong side.The initiative at Oval has now spread to several other stations, with photos of the "Thought for the Day" being shared on social networks, and numerous bars and shops have also started sharing quotes and witticisms.
